The new Barcelona kit is officially unveiled; now you can buy it.
Since Tuesday, the new strip is being sold at the club's 'FCBotiga Megastore' at Camp Nou. According to the club, the kit has been well accepted among fans, and has generated a lot of interest from supporters.
The kit can be bought at the club store and other official outlets. You can also order it on Nike's Barça page. The gorgeous golden away kit with the Senyera in the back will be available on June 25.
Can I say something? After looking at this kit over and over again, this thing has won me, humm, over. The horizontal stripes are a big change of scenery and it is a tough pill to swallow. If you're a huge lover of the past and a Blaugrana conservative, you will not like it. That's a fact.
I'm still a bit of a conservative, especially when it comes to the Qatar Airways advertising and all of that. But when it comes to this kit, I have to say that I love it. It's not a welcome change because the vertical stripes are beautiful and historical and will always be the trademark of this club.
BUT, there's nothing bad about doing something different as long as it is well done. Nike did a good job. It looks great. The horizontal stripes were a bit of a shock, but we'll get used to it. The design is what matters. I love the design.
Just need to know the Gundogan number to purchase one in January. Hopefully. If not, I'm going with Messi.
