Xoel Càrdenas takes a look at Sport.es releasing photos of the 2015-16 FC Barcelona kits.

Back in December, I brought you an article which we discussed Sport.es releasing designs for the 2015-16 FC Barcelona kits.

On Friday, Sport.es released photos displaying the '15-'16 Barça kits produced and on display.

Let's take a look at what Lionel Messi and the rest of FC Barcelona will be wearing next season.

AWAY KIT

The 2015-16 away kit will feature the Senyera colors, including the Senyera stripes on the back with blue number and lettering. The front collar will be blue and the back of the collar will be yellow, with the inside of the collar displaying the Senyera. The away kit's shorts will be blue.

HOME KIT

The home kit continues the tradition of the blaugrana colors. However, for the first time in Futbol Club Barcelona history, the azulgrana stripes will be horizontal, not vertical. The home shorts will be red.

XOEL'S THOUGHTS

The away kit is OK. I like the Senyera design of the back of the kit. Last season, Barcelona wore a Senyera kit as the away kit, and some thought it was bad luck, as Barça didn't play well when wearing the kit. Let's hope next season's away kit doesn't bring the team the same result. Overall, I believe the away kit will be well received among Barça traditionalists and progressives.

As far as the home kit, I am still a bit conflicted. Yes, I like the fact that the designers want to try new things for the kit. But I'm not sure if I like the bluagrana vertical stripes being flipped to the side and made horizontal. Barça's 2015-16 home kit may look a bit like Germany's 2014 World Cup away kit, given Nike designs Barcelona's kits and Adidas is Germany's designer. For me, I'd like to keep the tradition and keep the vertical stripes. But that's just me. I like the idea that FC Barcelona keeps at least this tradition.

Count me in for the away kit. The home kit: maybe to keep it in the collection, but I'll still wear a traditional Barça kit.

So what do you think of the 2015-16 FC Barcelona kits? Leave a comment and let us know.
