These are the 19 best kits of the 2017/18 season
4. Benfica home
Polo-style collar? Tick. Embroidered badge? Tick. A sponsor’s logo which, as far as possible, blends in rather than takes over? Tickety tick tick.
A tribute to former great Eusebio, this kit is 1960s-inspired without looking dated. It’s just a shame they ran out of inspiration before designing such a dreadfully dull away strip.
3. Boca Juniors home
There’s nothing particularly revolutionary here, but Boca’s is among the most iconic kits in world football and the latest version doesn’t disappoint. South American shirts don’t come much better.
2. Palmeiras third
... unless they're Palmeiras, that is. Oh, what have they done? Only got us lustful for racing green, that's what. The Brazilian champions' delightful new kit honours their 1942 title-winning side, combining a gorgeous tone of gold with a moody shade of green that gets FFT hot under the collar.
1. Sampdoria home, away
The kit kings are back and, mercifully, they haven’t changed a winning formula. Both home and away shirts feature the legendary horizontal band of white, blue and red; the badge remains on the sleeve, too, which is the type of thing only Samp are cool enough to pull off.
The words “la maglia più bella del mondo” (“the most beautiful shirt in the world”) are stitched on the inside of both jerseys. Who are we to argue?
