Adidas – 1984-85 Collection…

These Adidas kit graphics are from a 1984-85 MC Sports brochure…

Adidas football kits arrived in the UK in the late seventies, so by the time this mid-eighties collection was launched they were on their third kit design for some clubs and faced the challenge of coming up with something a bit different.

That included a Manchester United shirt without the three stripes branding; a simplified West Ham badge; and red bands of differing widths to QPR and Ipswich shirts.

Wales, Luton, Aberdeen and Forest also went horizontal, while the early 80s fad for pinstripes persisted, mainly in change strips.

All in all we think they are quite a decent array of kits, would you agree… or not?!
