lol all of them are the same, except the collar and the Football Association logo.

Uruguay kits? Imagine the kit in light blue, and with Uruguay's FA logo

If Uruguay are still with Puma then no doubt it'll be easy to predict what their home and away kits will be like. However all of the away kits were revealed last month, with Uruguay not in that list, and now almost (if not all) the home kits have now been revealed, which makes me think they've torn up the contract already and looking as if they'll be wearing a new supplier this year.

As long as the puma kits arent made out of plastic carrier bags this time it should be okay.

haha ... carrier bags again, but this time from a different store?

Notice LA Galaxy have a new home shirt also.

what, Toronto don't get a new jersey?! or is it that they just didn't have one available there to display? (wouldn't be too disappointed since it means that the authentic home jersey I bought last season is still in use)

My guess is that Toronto are keeping the home kit for another season.

A number of the other MLS teams had worn their previous kits for 2 seasons and have thus changed them. As far as I can think only LA Galaxy kept their previous kit for one (you could argue HALF A SEASON), with a new kit for this year.

Man, just looking at those Puma kits really shows that the Puma staff have never heard this word: ORIGINALITY

The shirts are just so...boring! Although I admit the material seems interesting....

About Uruguay: Maybe they scrapped Puma or maybe Puma is making something really special for them (but I doubt it)...it would be cool if Uruguay would land a deal with Nike...or maybe Umbro...

The only good thing about these new Puma kits is that the average PES or FIFA kit maker would be able to get all of them done in an afternoon, maybe within half an hour depending on their ability, or in my case, depending on the level of intoxication at the period of commencing work! (H)

They may have advancements in fabric and laser printing technology but what we've seen from Puma this year is a lot of drab uniformity. Some kits are virtually identical apart from the national federation's logo, something you'd normally only get with clubs who wear "teamwear" kits. The only surprise is that they have two "distinct" designs, which both happen to be designated for home and away kits, but on closer inspection the only differences is that the home kit has the v-neck and the Puma logo on the left (as we see it) and the away has the fold-over collar and Puma logo rather bizarrely under the badge - both shirts seem to have the same stitching patterns, apart from the collar and cuffs.

I know Puma have made some one-off special designs for some national teams, Italy in 2004 and 2006 (away kit inparticular), Cameroon in 2004 and 2002 (both of which were controversial for various reasons), but since 2002 their sponsored teams in general seem to be wearing the same basic jersey, but differing in colours.

I know Adidas and Nike have both been criticised for similar reasons in the past, but thankfully they've been a bit more creative in the last 2 years or so.

Pumas always look good the first time you see them, then are just crap.


Like the old Nike gear.

Hopefully they have some kind of change so they can be like Nike and adidas are now with every kit being different and special.

adidas? last TWO years? JJ, mate, what have you been smoking? adidas are ABOUT TO release more unique kits -- even the 07-08 crop are templates, with very minor "cosmetic customizations" (e.g. Ajax's home shirt, with the XXX's, and the lack of the 3 stripes on the sleeves) ... Nike just about make it two years, and that's because their World Cup kits had unique designs ...

oh, puma's cartoon advertising campaigns (for cameroon) were absolutely brilliant: the 2002 sleeveless kit, and especially the 2004 uniQT!

on that note -- and a bit off-topic -- is there a football ads thread still active on SG? Nike's lengthy SPQR ad is something i'd like to watch again...

I guess Adidas may not have been a good example but in the past they tended to stick to the same basic template with some minor cosmetic changes here and there, such as the collar shape and some other touches, but they tend to go with two or three templates for their kits. What I meant by the creativity is that some of the cosmetic changes they apply add a little bit more "uniqueness" to a particular team's shirt, but fair point on some the base template is still effectively the same. For example as you stated, the Ajax kit, which, on closer inspection, is the same base template as Newcastle and AC Milan.

Nike's kits prior to 2006 used to have too much similarity - the 2002 kits all had that line going across the back, 2004 kits were all in that Total 90 design with the circle around the front number, 2005 kits had those arcs coming from the shoulders. There were some minor details such as the collar and trim but they were all basically the same designs.

I thought those Puma adverts were great, I just wish their kit designers had the same level of imagination as their advert makers, they should smoke the same stuff that I've been on!! (H)

Oh and by the way, just seen this on FSC, following on from the MLS kits...



As you can see, NY Red Bulls and Houston Dynamo's kits are the same as last season's. San José's combination of colours looks a bit strange, they'd have been better off reverting to blue shirt black shorts as it was before they disbanded the first time around.

More "boring boring PUMA" kits...

Bahrain


Egypt


Namibia


In addition I think Uruguay are no longer sponsored by Puma - after looking at the Puma Football website it appears they are no longer featured, then again Namibia are not listed in their list of national teams either but wear a Puma kit.

This is the best post describing how badly those new PUMAs suck. Just look at all 3 - they're 99% the same. If the egyptian collar wasn't white, but red, than 99.9% equality.

LIke i said, i bet some feds will complain and Puma will take action. Otherwise i can imagine them doing kits for less important NTs (aka ones, that will be satisfied with such a crap) only.

Really great Chivas kit!

Anyway Morocco right now are wearing a white kit in the African Nations Cup match against Namibia



I would guess it is an away kit, though in the friendly match with France a few weeks ago they wore a red kit in the same Puma template with a fold-over collar, albeit with old Puma socks. I take it the red one must be the third kit then. You can also see that Namibia's kit is all red, by the way.

Brazil new away kit - official







As earlier predicted by myself in the other new kit thread, the numbers are yellow, like the away kit of 1958.

Typical Kappa, they are running out of ideas, "ah yes lets recycle that collar from the kit we made in 2002/03, and 2005/06".

f*cking beautiful (Y) do all the new Reebok kits use that design?

Sadly, not.
It´s just a retro kit used only for that game to make a tribute to one of the greatest players of the past of this team: Chava Reyes.

Even the logos of Reebok and Bimbo (in the sleeve) are retro.

I'd hope so since all Australian clubs are sponsored by them, but Chivas always get different kits to the rest.
