This isn’t the first time adidas and EA Sports have pulled a stunt like this – they revealed special edition in game shirts for the same four clubs last December – but this is the first time that adidas have actually manufactured them in real life and released them to market, and it’s perfectly okay to admit you want all four of them. The only thing wrong with them is that they won’t be worn on pitch by the clubs. The new Adidas x EA Sports kits take last year’s ‘Digital 4th Kit’ concepts and add a even crazier twist to them. It’s like the most outrageous Instagram concepts have come to live. And better yet, where last year’s kits were only available inside FIFA, this year you’ll be able to buy them. The Adidas x EA Sports digital fourth kits are available in limited quantities from November 29. They retail at 89,5Euro. Up to 110Euro with namesets on the back and official badges.
Real Madrid are hooked up with an outer-space vibe complemented by the simplicity of the all white ‘Fly Emirates’ sponsor across the chest of jersey. That old school collar with adidas performance logo providing one aesthetically pleasing look across all four shirts.
The most eccentric design from the collection comes in the form of the Manchester United fourth jersey with an all over leopard-skin print. Being hampered by the ‘Chevrolet’ logo is a theme that has run throughout the past few United shirts, but this is truly something else. Don’t expect any of the designs to stick around for long – we’re expecting a rapid sell-out time here.
