Nike should be ashamed.
The World Cup begins in a week and it only comes around every four years, so naturally it is a special event for soccer fans. Such a big event should marked by special and memorable kits.
However, Nike (2022 World Cup’s official outfitter) is doing the exact opposite: they designed some of the worst kits in recent World Cup history. They especially dropped the ball when it comes to the United States kits.
The United States home kits are extremely bland, while the away ones are way too much and way too sloppy. The Nike logo on the sleeve makes the kits look even worse because it just leaves the USA crest sitting in the middle with nothing else beside it.
“I’ve never seen the USA have kits this bad, this is a new low,” said junior soccer fan Brayden Dawson.
It’s not just the USA kits that Nike messed up, it’s almost all of the national team kits they designed. Nike tried to do way too much with the designs resulting in sloppy and over the top results almost like they waited until the last minute and just threw something together.
Many fans have called Nike out on their terrible kits asking for the designers to be fired and begging them to not be worn at the World Cup. The players don’t seem to approve the kits either because star player Weston McKennie was seen replying to a picture of them on Instagram saying, “Tried to tell them.”
While most teams who have Nike as their kit supplier will stand out at this year’s World Cup, they won’t be standing out in a good way, and most of the kits will be soon forgotten.
