As one season reaches its culmination, the anticipation for what could lye ahead in the next starts to build. With that comes the glory of new kit. The chance to use a little imagination and smarten up, a refresher of an opportunity to carry that excitement for football on further too. One of the first to the party in FC Shalke 04 with their 2016/17 home shirt.
Bold in blue with a complimentary shade for the collar, the 16/17 Shalke home shirt is one for those who appreciate the more minimalist approach to football shirts. Clean in the delivery and no doubts a sharp number that will travel well on pitch, the white and blue cuffs add a trim of colour. Off the pitch, fold 'em up, on the pitch, base layer under. It's often the way it goes ― both looks will look on point with this shirt.
An embroidered badge stands proud while the three adidas stripes move from the sleeves to the sides as they flank the shirt. This shirt has been designed to meet the best of both worlds ― a playing environment expertly engineered as well as tailored one for when the game ends. Shades of blue championed, the club have released it with an illustrative approach too.
On sale now, it's one that Shalke supporters can wear well dressed as they look ahead to a potentially promising season next term.
