a few weeks ago Adidas We have released several goalkeeper icon shirts for selected national teams. This includes Mexico, Germany, Argentina and Spain.
The moment I saw this I knew I had to get a Spanish shirt.
Finally got it, it’s great!
Here’s what you need to know about Adidas Spain Icon Goalkeeper Shirt.
Adidas released several football lifestyle shirts a few weeks ago. They call them Icon shirts and take design inspiration from the goalie shirts released in the 90’s.
The German and Argentinian versions are inspired by shirts worn in 1990, while the Mexican shirt is inspired by the crazy kit worn by Jorge Campos with the national team.
The Spanish Goalkeeper Shirt borrows adidas’ goalkeeper template design from the 95-96 season. This is the same design used by Newcastle and Liverpool, but with changed colors.
The shirt is mostly light blue, and the overall print design is a shade of dark blue. Then there are three spike-type designs in white, dark, and light blue.
From 1995 to the present, I have always loved this design.
The biggest difference between this and the 95-96 jersey is that the entire design is printed onto the shirt.
The badge on the front uses a similar color design with only two colors instead of the old-fashioned full-color badge.
It’s also worth mentioning that it’s the new 2022 Spanish crest on the shirt, rather than the old style one.
Made from 100% recycled polyester, just like the new adidas soccer shirts, it feels great against the skin.
I have to talk about fit. For some reason Adidas lists this as a slim fit on their site and says it’s a relaxed fit.
This is a very oversized fit football shirt. It even says loose fit inside the shirt.
I was going to buy the medium but opted for the small instead. Albeit a tight fit, I think this could also fit a larger size.
This is good because the aesthetic and spirit of the 90’s fit lives on in the shirt. Not only were goalie shirts baggy, much of 90s fashion was baggy and oversized fits.
Therefore, it can be said that it is perfect for oversized shirts. The sleeve length is just right, not too long. The length of the shirt is good, but rather short.
In the 90’s all goalkeeper shirts had long sleeves. So is this shirt. This is his one of the only long sleeve football shirt I’ve ever owned (my other Spanish goalie shirt is short sleeve).
If you don’t know anything about goalie shirts from the 90’s, this design is in keeping with them.
I loved the crazy 90’s patterns, colors, then and now. I can only hope that more will be released, and I may have to look into those as well.
At £90, this shirt is expensive, but since it’s an iconic shirt and a limited edition, I couldn’t pass it up.
Sadly, this shirt will not be used at the World Cup, nor will it be used in Spain.At least that is the official plan.
Maybe in the future we’ll see it actually used in a friendly match or something.
i love this shirt If you’re a shirt collector, a Spanish fan, or if you like his 90’s goalkeeper shirts, you’ll love it!
