Top 5 USMNT Kits

So we’ve reviewed the last 3o years of USMNT kits and have picked out our top 5.  Here we go . . .

Austin’s Top 5

#5

2000 Home

I really like the 2000 kits.  Simple v neck collar and a solid color for each shirt.  With the modern trend towards a tight fit (and if I bulked up), I think this could have crept into the top 5.

2010       Away

Top five for sure.  Navy blue.  Check.  White sash that contrasts nicely with the rest of the shirt.  Check. I own this one, have it personalized (Junior #7) and wear it a lot.  Love it.

#3

2008 Away

Love the charcoal color.  Out of the ordinary and looks great with the accented red hoop collar and white shorts.  From time to time you’ve got to change things up.  Wouldn’t mind this as a third shirt in the future.

Crisp white jersey with ring collar, vertical bands of red and blue that reflect the US flag, and navy blue shorts.  Fantastic.  Imagine this kit with the centennial crest.

#1

2013 Centennial

The combination of something old, something new and something clean creates Nike’s best effort for the US National team.  The badge is shield reflecting the US flag and previous incarnations; the fabric and looks are entirely modern; and the navy blue v neck and accents on the sleeves make this a shirt worth having.
