A few weeks ago, Leeds United fan CK (@ephemeraljoy) discovered us on Twitter and it’s far to say that his life hasn’t been the same since:

He plucked up the courage to make contact and, because fame has never gone to our heads, we were happy to oblige his request for late 1980s-style Kappa kits on Leeds. The home is a reworking of the Milan away style used in the 1989 and 1990 European Cup finals:

For the away, we riffed on the Sampdoria look, with the sponsor high and the crest on the sleeve (there was a temptation to put something else – like the smiley badge – in the middle of the stripes, like the Samp cross, but we resisted).

And, while Leeds didn’t have a third kit in 1989, we just couldn’t help ourselves in providing a blue alternative, based on Milan’s ‘normal’ away of the time.

Incidentally, Leeds are away to Reading tomorrow, April 1, so we might perhaps see another interest mix of home and away kits from them.
