Recently people from a number of different football websites (thefootballattic.com, truecoloursfootballkits.com and designfootball.com) put together a list of the most iconic football kits of all time. There were 50 kits in total and all were ranked in order (you can find the full list here).

To save time and space here is part of that final list, the top 10 –

10-england-1980-82-h 9-africa-unity-2010-11 8-newcastle-utd-1995-97-h 7-france-1984-86-h 6-juventus-1985-h 5-liverpool-1985-87-h 4-denmark-1986-h-v2 3-netherlands-1988-h 2-england-2009-h 1-west-germany-1988-91-h

I have to say that I definitely agree with the number one choice on this list, it is my favourite football shirt of all time and one that Adidas should hurry up and re-release! As for the rest of the kits, well the full 50 makes for fascinating reading but I don’t think that the England kit at number 2 deserves to be there (it isn’t even that nice of an England kit!).
