The 10 best shirts of 2020 Design and pattern to bring football closer to the world of fashion

The wave of kits for the 2020-21 season was the most anomalous ever for the reasons everyone knows. The launch campaigns were affected, but not the design of the jerseys that once again is getting closer and closer to that fashion side that is becoming more central in the world of football. In an eventful summer since the end of the national championships and the Champions League, the brands have nevertheless been able to seize opportunities and launch new trends.


AS Roma away | Nike

Nike's last year in the capital was best honored. Three kits that resemble three masterpieces, with tributes to logos and colors of the past that are not limited to the match jerseys but that involve the entire football collection, from training kits to streetwear items. The design of the Pantheon dome is one of the inspirations, while for the away shirt there is all the nostalgia that envelops Rome. One of the best of 2020, even if it seems to come from the 80s.


Paris Saint-Germain third | Jordan brand

It is the most anticipated jersey of the year (hands down) and this year Jordan x PSG did not betray expectations. As for Rome, here too there is a historical reference to the colors of Paris and French elegance. The sobriety of the Jordan kits completes an offer that again this year is worth every penny that Nike and PSG ask for. A collaboration that is increasingly street style but that does not lose any aesthetic value on the pitch.


Arsenal away | adidas

adidas' work done with Arsenal this year is among the best ever. Choosing between first, second and third jersey is really difficult, but the tribute to Highbury that can be clearly seen on the away version is slightly ahead of the modern version of the bruised banana design and the shades of blue and pink that characterize the third kit . The "marble" aspect that this jersey has is something new and iconic at the same time.


AC Milan home | PUMA

From the great work of adidas to the great work of PUMA, from one architectural reference to another. The Herzogenaurach brand has brilliantly ridden the trend of architecture and city references, and with Milan it was spoiled for choice. Putting a symbol like the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II on a shirt across its iconic floor was an apt choice that is making the Rossoneri aesthetics fly.


Corinthians 4th kit | Nike

Il primo quarto kit della storia del Corinthians prodotto da Nike è un piccolo gioiello che è arrivato proprio verso la fine del 2020. i designer dello swoosh hanno preso ispirazione dagli elementi più caratteristici della città più grande del Sud America, São Paulo, come ad esempio la mappa di una delle città più incredibili del mondo e il pattern degli iconici marciapiedi bianchi e neri, proprio come i colori del Corinthians. Un super lavoro che esalta l'anima vera dei club sud americani e il loro strettissimo legame con la città e la comunità di appartenenza.

Juventus 4th kit | Human Race adidas

If on the one hand the first three adidas kits made for Juventus left a bit of a bitter taste, on the other the German brand knew it had the ace in the missing. The collaboration with Human Race gave life to jerseys designed by Pharrell Williams and the result was very good. Juventus, together with Real Madrid, are the only team to have already worn it in the competition, waiting to see the latest version, that is, that of Bayern Munich - so far worn only by the women's team.


AS Roma x Brain Dead

Football, streetwear and gaming: the latest combo of sports collaborations. This is what was achieved by AS Roma who, in collaboration with Brain Dead and Konami, Football Videogame Partner of the Capitoline club, launched the fourth digital jersey of the 2020-21 season. From the union between the iconic yellow and red colors and the artistic vision of Brain Dead, comes a limited-edition kit created in collaboration with one of the most active names in the streetwear scene of recent years. Already the protagonist of a long series of collaborations, Brain Dead is a creative collective of artists all over the world. Not a single individual, therefore, but a set of minds that with this collaboration is also included in the world of football and eSports.

Ajax away | adidas

The Ajax shirt is one of the most important symbols of European football, intrinsic to history, successes and ambitions. adidas wanted to pay homage to the history of the club by digging deeply and taking up a shirt from the past. The colors of the first jersey are untouchable, while for the second there has always been maximum freedom and the creativity of the brands has alternated large kits with aesthetic disasters. For 2020-21 we are definitely in the first category.


Valencia third | PUMA

PUMA has managed to penetrate all the major leagues and in Spain the top team is Valencia. The colors of the Costa di Levante team allow PUMA designers to indulge themselves, but the best comes with the third kit, inspired by the works of the Spanish painter Joaquín Sorolla, a master in the use of different shades ranging from blue to pink. Another round, another shirt, another cultural tribute to the local community.


Schalke 04 away | Umbro

Among the best jerseys Umbro cannot be missing, always at the top of these rankings. Among the many proposals this year, the pattern of the Schalke 04 shirt has really convinced everyone. Launched in collaboration with the rapper from Gelsenkirchen Weekend, the shirt represents the surrounding area of the VELTINS-Arena, the location of the Schalke 04 matches and the video for "Eine Liebe" (One Love), one of the last weekend singles.


Bonus track - SSC Napoli 4th kit | Kappa

The bonus track is dedicated to SSC Napoli for the value and beauty of Kappa's Kombat PRO which completes the 4 kits of the Napoli 2020-21 season. A clear tribute to the Argentina shirt worn 91 times by the late Diego Armando Maradona. A tribute that, explains the brand, had already been decided at the beginning of the year and that was launched during the week of the death of the Pibe de Oro. A stunning coincidence that makes this kit even more unique.
