The new Adidas Real Madrid away kit 2022/23 has been released – and wow, is it a thing of beauty.
The Los Blancos home effort was impressive enough – one of the first European jerseys we were treated to this summer – with its subtle detailing and its traditional collar, but the away top takes the purple of the home effort and runs with it, combining a gorgeous, mountainous pattern with a lovely shade.
Purple is a popular colour in the annuls of Bernabeu history, thanks to its regality. Just look at the sash in the Real badge – and check out a few of the retro kits that the European champions have been treated to in the past.
Well this time around, Adidas have combined a light lilac with black and mixed up simplicity with detail. The pattern on the shirt is particularly eye-catching, coupled with a minimal round collar.
Is this the nicest shirt that has been released this season? Possibly so, for us.
