With a return to the classic rossoneri shirts of old, Italian giants AC Milan and Adidas unveiled their new home kit for the 2017-18 season, which will be used for the first time in Milan’s final home game of this season against Bologna on the 21st May. The new kit has a classic, elegant design with stripes back and front which takes inspiration from Milan’s glorious past. Along with the red and black kit are white shorts and white socks with red stripes, while an alternative option with black socks and black shorts with red stripes is also available.
According to Milan’s official press release, the new kit “invokes the club’s iconic heritage, taking inspiration from two dominant periods in the club’s history. The width of the famous black and red stripes was inspired by the period between 1987/88–1997/98 where the club established itself as a dominant European power and grew a global fan base. This decade saw the club claim 17 out of the 29 trophies it has won in total throughout the club’s history. The inspiration for the design is further enhanced by choice of font for names and numbers on the back of the shirt, which is similar to what was worn by the great champions of those years.”
