With Spurs generally having been a bit sluggish about releasing new kit designs, this year has been little different, with Arsenal, Liverpool, and Manchester United all having released images of their new kits this week whilst Spurs fans have been given the distant and vague date of early July [Edit: see new date update at bottom of article]. It can only be good news, then, that Under Armour seem to have revealed their plans for the second and third kits in a promotional video this week, to go with the home shirt design leaked earlier in the week. Pictures of all three potential kit designs for the 12/13 season are after the jump.
The home shirt, if indeed correct, is a tasteful stripped back number, predominantly white with some grey detail on the side.
The away shirt is a rather tasty looking dark blue, with a strange-looking chevron pattern on the reverse. Although shown with current sponsor Autonomy, their sponsorship deal expired at the end of the current season, so it’s likely that their logo has simply been used as a placeholder.
Finally, the third shirt is where Under Armour have clearly decided to go a little bit mental. Looking a little like a weird, alternative Newcastle kit, if the leaked design proves to be the finished article, it’s likely this will be the kit that provokes the most polar reaction of the three.
Whilst these designs are by no means definitely final, that the two away kits came from Under Armour themselves at least suggests that they are under consideration. Thoughts?
EDIT: Another photo has surfaced since this morning, showing all three kits on a powerpoint presentation. Legitimacy can be argued, but the kits seem to match up with the above – the only apparent difference being that a collar seems to have been added to the home kit in this version.
EDIT 2: Goalkeeper kits. Under Armour perhaps showing a little naïvety here by assuming Gomes will be the goalkeeper donning them. Different numbers on the shorts and shirts is also a new one.
UPDATE: Spurs have now confirmed on the official site that the kits will be unveiled on the 12th July, and available to buy from 13th July.
