Leeds United’s new adidas home strip was finally revealed this week. While it’s a nice design, we feel that it could have done with some yellow trim and Jim Hearson agreed:
Paint or not, it’s so well-executed that we could actually just leave that as today’s offering but, after some discussions with Jim, we decided to go retro with Leeds/adidas instead.
Back in July 2016, one of the first FKFs we did was Leeds in early 1990s adidas Equipment stylings, so that era was avoided. Instead, we did two other eras. First, 1988, with the home using the ubiquitous diagonal parallelograms and the away based upon the Netherlands Euro 88-winning design.
In addition, Jim suggested an alternative reality where Leeds avoided relegation in 2004 and signed up with the German firm. The home is again a design that was common that year, while the away is the Argentina home style.
Feedback is welcome, along with future FKF requests – comment below or tweet us @museumofjerseys.
