The last 12 months have seen Nike take its football kit game to another level, with bangers for the likes of Nigeria, China, and Swedish club AIK. Not to be outdone, on International Women's Day, adidas unveiled its new home jersey for the German women's national team — and it might top the lot.

The retro-inflected design draws inspiration from the shirt the women's West Germany team wore as they claimed their first international trophy at the European Championship on home soil in 1989 (the same design was worn by the men as they bagged the 1990 World Cup in Italy).

The 1989-90 retro approach also informed the men's team's look at the 2018 World Cup in Russia, although that shirt reintroduced the chest stripes in a monochromatic style.

Unlike the OG's clean chest stripes in national colors, the new women's jersey carries a fragmented rendering of the German flag. The two stars above the German FA crest represent the country's two Women's World Cup wins in 2003 and 2007, with standard adi stripes on each shoulder.

If Twitter reaction is anything to go by, the kit is already a hit with men and women alike.

The jersey is available now for $90 at adidas.
