Have always thought that in the main adidas produced the best looking, most stylish kits and so I had high expectations for our kit this season. However, overall I’m pretty disappointed with them.

The home kit is OK I guess, but spoilt by the SBOTOP name/logo and over sized JD Sports sleeve name/logo.

I really don’t like the Away kit. Not got a problem with the stripes design, it’s the choice of colours (navy and a teal like green) which IMO don’t really go together. Then the adidas ‘3 stripes’ they’ve added are an insipid shade, that is neither yellow or gold. Not a patch on the 93/94 ASICS/Thistle Hotels bold blue/yellow Away striped shirt, or the striped green/navy 3rd shirt (which is probably the closest one to this).

I'm not keen on the new home shirt.

I don't like the away shirt 😕
Reminds me of the 90s away shirt..
For me the away shirt has to be yellow.
I realise that there's often several away shirts produced, maybe the next one may be yellow!!

Imo the home shirt really needed a bit of yellow trim on it somewhere preferably on the shoulder between the blue stripes and the JD logo is a bit oversized. Pleased that it is predominantly white tho’.

As a traditionalist I’m with you Haighy, the away kit has to be yellow!

Concur...away Yellow... never really bother with 3rd and 4th strips ... also I was expecting more from the home strip... but that logo would spoil anything I think

I really like the away shirt, usually dont bother getting one but will be this time, the JD sports logo does ruin it a bit but the main sponsor isn't too bad when compared to other clubs. The club have repeatedly said that yellow dosnt sell so cant see them going back to that anytime soon.

Don't like it much at all . Its a bit like the Macron 2008 ( I think ) away , or the Yeboah era away . Home kit ........still not sure myself , sort of ok . Grey training top looks fairly decent but overall am very underwhelmed by the Adidas range , far far inferior IMO to the Kappa stuff , which I liked , ranging from first team home & away kits and the training kit . Kappa seemed to have far more imagination and style to me . Maybe over time Adidas will improve but so far a distinctly average mark from me . See how I feel when the stuff is on sale price at end of season , but certainly wouldn't pay top price for this stuff .

Yeah, I really like it. Different strokes for different folks, I guess. I do like us to have a yellow kit and hopefully the 3rd kit will be (although maroon is the rumour) but manufacturers now use 2nd and 3rd kits to experiment.
I really liked the black Kappa one we had about 3 years ago and this one is excellent as well and although not traditional LUFC colours, at least has a nod to one of our previous kits........
