Yesterday, Arsenal launched their new kit for the upcoming 12/13 Premier League season.
Arsenal’s kit has deep heritage and tradition and football fans worldwide know the north London club by their renowned red and white colour way in the shirt, with a block red body and white sleeves.
The new playing kit, however, features a blue hoop detail inspired by the home kit socks worn in the 1930s under legendary manager Herbert Chapman.
The origins of the blue (obsidian) design features lie in Chapman’s innovative approach to the game. Arsenal manager between 1925 and 1934, his guidance took the Club to three league titles and an FA cup victory during that time.
Could this inspire Arsenal’s young squad to break the clubs long-standing trophy drought?
