The NIKE 2020/21 THIRD KITS draw inspiration from classic Air Max silhouettes to fuse sneaker culture with team identity…
Inspired by the prominence of Nike Air Max being worn on the terraces of football matches, the latest collection of third kits playfully exhibit the connection between football and sneaker culture, with each kit taking on a unique design full of colours and vibrant history.
The FC BARCELONA kit arrives with a vibrant pink and sea green makeup, inspired by the colour combination seen on many classic pairs throughout the years, and now on a Barcelona-inspired Air Max 90.
Taking on a retro aesthetic, the CHELSEA kit boasts the iconic colours of the original Air Max 180, with references to vintage Chelsea away kits making this a popular option for loyal fans.
Dressed in a bright and zesty yellow, the TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR option fuses its design with that of the beloved Air Max 95, with a gradient design reminiscent of the layered upper of the street classic.
Perhaps the brightest of them all, ATLETICO MADRID’S third kit utilises a neon green with a marble-effect graphic, nodding to the soles of the Air Max 90 and Madrid’s famous Fountain of Neptune.
The Nike Air Max 97 “Silver Bullet” is one of the most iconic styles known, and is the basis of inspiration behind the FC INTERNAZIONALE MILANO kit, with horizontal black and silver stripes wrapping around the jersey.
Embracing the famous safari print, the AS ROMA jersey wears bold pops of orange and black inspired by the Air Max 90 Safari and the cult-like feeling towards it.
Dedicated to the unrivaled passion and loyalty of its fans, the GALATASARAY kit takes on a fiery red and orange makeup nodding to the gradient overlays of the Air Max Plus.
Finally, RB LEIPZIG’S jersey is the most playful of the bunch, with a swirling graphic created from a distorted image of the club crest. Various pops of blue and white draw inspiration from the Nike Air Max 98.
