Manchester United have officially unveiled the new adidas-made third kit for the 2022/23 season, which debuts a unique, all-over design – never seen before – in a striking green colourway.
Truly an eye-catching jersey, its distinguished from the club’s home and away shirts this season thanks to the vibrancy and striking geometric pattern that has been incorporated into the design.
It boasts a crewneck collar, which has been designed with a statement graphic design, directly inspired by the Zeitgeist fashion culture of the 1990s.
Discussing the story behind the design, Inigo Turner, Design Director at adidas said, “A convergence of cultural icons remixed and recoded, the 22/23 third kit takes its inspiration from the iconic Manchester United graphic identity, using geometric shapes and patterns.”
“We’ve blended these with a new interpretation of a classic club colour for a fresh, eye-catching kit.”
From a performance perspective, the jersey is available in two versions, authentic and replica.
Whilst both are made from 100% recycled materials, which is a part of adidas’ mission to combat plastic waste, there are some subtle differences between them.
The authentic version is designed to be worn on the pitch, and to help you up your game when you need it most.
Thanks to adidas’s latest and innovative temperature regulation technology, you can focus on the game ahead of you.
HEAT.RDY technology is designed to maximise airflow and optimise sweat distribution, which in turn keeps you cool, calm and confident during the game.
The replica shirt provides similar benefits, and looks just as striking too.
Similar to adidas’ HEAT.RDY technology, the replica version utilises AEROREADY technology.
This manages your sweat, to keep you comfortable whilst you show off your incredible support.
The new third kit will be worn for the first time on the pitch in this Saturday’s Premier League away game against Brentford FC.
