Highsnobiety

None of us are old enough to remember a world in which sportswear was reserved for sports but weirdly it did exist. Of course, tracksuits and running sneakers are now firm fixtures of the everyday wardrobe and have been for several decades. The real underrated star of the sportswear-lifestyle crossover, though, is the football shirt.

While for some, wearing a football jersey is a tribal thing to prove your allegiance, we’re big advocates for donning a jersey on its style value alone. Plus, with kits getting more and more adventurous, it’s no surprise that football shirts are crossing over with fashion more frequently than ever.

Whether it’s Drake popularizing a Juventus third kit, or Demna walking jerseys down the Balenciaga runway, the football shirt is no new source of inspiration these days. That said, there’s a wealth of fire football shirts to pick from out there right now.

From North London-inspired Arsenal prints to goated Venezia shirts, we’ve rounded up 10 of the best football shirts we’ve got our eye on to wear this summer.

Shop the best football shirts below.

Austin FC 22/23 Away

$130

adidas

Buy at adidas US

For all the bold patterns out there, there's definitely still something to be said for pared-back classic simplicity. This Austin FC top is a no-nonsense design that's made all the more interesting by its pale green hue.

FC Bayern Pre-Match Kit

FC Bayern Pre-Match

$48

adidas

Buy at adidas US

There's something about training kits — teams' pre-match warm-up kits are often the most visually captivating of the lot. Bayern players are lucky enough to warm up in this undulating iteration and you can get in on the action too.

Arsenal Pre-Match Kit

Arsenal x TFL Pre-Match

$60

adidas

Buy at adidas US

It's a divisive kit, but this ranks really high for us. It's emblazoned with the iconic print of London Underground's Northern Line which carries optimistic Arsenal fans to the Emirates Stadium week in, week out.

Mexico Home Kit

Mexico Home

$63

adidas

Buy at adidas US

Up close, you'd be forgiven for thinking that this Mexico kit was a futuristic abstract pattern. From a distance, you'll realize that it's actually a traditional Azteca-style print.

FC Porto Third Kit

FC Porto Third

$90

New Balance

Buy at New Balance

We're suckers for a tinted off-white hue. The FC Porto third kit follows a string of similarly amazing light tints for teams like Manchester United and Liverpool. It makes it an easy game when it comes to styling this for everyday wear.

Lille LOSC Third Kit

Lille LOSC Third

$90

New Balance

Buy at New Balance

Much like training kits, third kits are always worthy of a purchase because the designers get to up the creativity. This Lille strip looks basic but a closer inspection shows that the pentagonal shape of the badge has been translated perfectly in tonal grey to the stomach.

Panama Away Kit

Panama Away

$90

New Balance

Buy at New Balance

Panama's Away kit takes inspiration from the sunset-moonrise on the national crest. The print across this shirt is designed to mimic the sky at dusk in Panama.

S.C. Corinthians 21/22 Home Kit

Image on Highsnobiety

S.C. Corinthians 2021/22 Home

$90

Nike

Buy at NIKE

Founded by five railway workers in 1910, Corinthians has a strong history of being underrated and proving itself. For those who had never heard of the team, this top embodies that fight — it's better than most of the biggest teams around.

Inter Milan 20/21 Fourth Kit

Image on Highsnobiety

Inter Milan 2020/21 Fourth

$90

Nike

Buy at NIKE

As a fourth kit, this Inter Milan strip may never have actually made it onto the field. Whether you love it or hate it, there's no denying the pure energy of it.

Venezia FC 21/22 Away Kit

Image on Highsnobiety

Venezia FC 21/22 Away

$98

Kappa

Buy at Venezia FC

Last but absolutely not least, Venezia FC's 21/22 Away Kit. Venezia is known for having some of the best kits in the game, thanks in no small part to the classic-football-top geniuses at Kappa. The 21/22 Away kit went above and beyond, though. This is Hall of Fame stuff.
