Classic football shirts have seen a huge revival in recent years, and if you talk to anyone invested in the scene, they’ll tell you just how much of a holy grail an adidas-made Boca Juniors kit is. So when the news hit that a 27-year separation was coming to an end, classic football shirt fans rejoiced in unison. Say hello to the new adidas Boca Junior home and away shirts for the 2020/21 season.
adidas and Club Atlético Boca Juniors are back together at last. Rekindling their prosperous relationship which was driven apart by Nike, both the home and away kit for the Argentinian team’s 2020/21 season look to be well worth the wait, with designs that echo the partnership between 1979 and 1993.
Utilising adidas’s new AeroReady technology, which provides better ventilation and more cooling, the home kit takes a traditional approach with the iconic horizontal yellow band on a blue background. The trademark Three Stripes can then be found in the same yellow on the shoulders, while another flash of yellow appears on the sleeves, forming the traditional Xeneizes flag.
The away kit is a reinterpretation of one of the iconic away shirts worn by the club in the 90s. A bold graphic dominates the centre of the predominantly white shirt, reproducing the colours of the club flag once more in a broad strip across the chest. The Three Stripes in blue are found on the shoulders and on the rounded neck.
The Boca Juniors 2020/21 Homeand Away Kits are available now for £69.95 over at the adidas Website, with the home kit set to debut in the upcoming game against Universitario on 16 January.
Though it may be five months away – and despite teams still needing to go the qualifying stage playoffs – adidas’ preparations are well underway for this summer’s EURO 2020. So much so, they’ve unveiled the Home kits for big boys Spain, Germany and Belgium, as well as Russia and Sweden.
