It’s starting to feel like one of those “Once upon a time…” stories, when you talk about Manchester United’s time of grandeur. It may have only be three years ago The Red Devils last won the Premier League, but those three years still feel like a lifetime away. In and around Manchester they still dream of the days, where the trophies were flowing in and with the presentation of the Manchester United away-shirt, adidas hope to make those dreams come true.
The blue kit really brings back the memories for nostalgics. This was the colour Manchester United wore the first time they ever conquered Europe and won the European Cup. Stylistically speaking adidas have tried to give it a more lifestyle-infused look, with the melange inspired design. I personally like the way many brands, and adidas in particular, have tried to create more streetwise football shirts, so even though I personally have no love for United, this gets a thumbs up from me.
