Which are the best and worst out there in your opinion?

Seems to me that one of the most popular brands out there, Nike, have become one of the most laziest when it comes to their designs.
They pay big money for these deals, and then churn out identical kits for various teams. Boring.

    Umbro comfortably make the worst kits these days, they had some of the best designs in the mid 2000s.

    Puma is the worst of the "big" manufacturers but Joma is significantly worse

    hard to get excited by any tbh, usually as bad as each other these days, not like anyone is going out of the way to be particularly unique anymore. I'd usually agree with the slating of Puma, but our collection of kits last season were definitely my favourite of my generation. Admittedly, they're competing with ❤️❤️❤️❤️ like Le Coq & Burrda but still. It's a shame Admiral are pretty much done now, usually my favourite retros are from them

    Adidas, love how they use retro designs in their kits. The United away kit this season is gorgeous, much like the home kit last season. Worst would be new balance, their kits are ugly.

    NB wouldn't happen to be Liverpool's kit maker, would they...

    The two flagship Adidas kits, Real and Bayern look like cheap knockoffs, they're having an off year.

    Wonder what Kappa and Lotto are doing these days. They were still kinda relevant in the 2000s

    Kappa does Napoli.
    They had some fairly good kits in the 90s.

    Best: Adidas and Puma

    Worst: Kappa and Nike

    Nike always snag (even on authentic kits) or have minor flaws. While Kappa is ok, their quality of kits just aren't up to scratch with Adidas or Puma imo.

    Side note, the Adidas Adizero kits have a tendency to tear if you get your shirt tugged as they are like paper thin, and seriously feel like you don't have a shirt on at all.
    Though otherwise they amazing, and I really wished Chelsea wouldn't have dropped Adidas. :(


    The Nike kits this year are just boring, and while I'm waiting for my customized authentic home kit in the mail, I don't have high expectations for it. :/

    Agree, Nike are dull. I like the more up and coming ones like Joma and Macron these days. They have produced some classy kits - for teams all over the world too, judging by the kits on UT.

    Puma. Absolutely lazy designers they have. Anyone seen their wc kits?

    Nike are horribly bland and boring. Never liked them.

    Used to love Adidas but they've been milking the same old designs for a decade. I gotta say that the shirts are really comfortable though and hold up well over time

    New Balance are probably my current favourites because they take risks for better or worse. It's either brilliant or atrocious

    Worst of all time though has got to be Reebok, they murdered my nipples. They were itchy and irriating as hell.
