The new Barcelona kit is just a few days away from being officially launched, but we already know how it looks like. And with every new detail, it gets even more beautiful.
Two weeks ago, we saw this leak from Footy Headlines that showed the new shirt:

It looked great, obviously, with a simple yet modern design. But sometimes the shorts or the socks can screw up the entire kit if they're not designed right. Thankfully, it isn't the case with the new kit. An image from what appears to be a photo shoot with the team's stars shows the entire kit, and DAYUMN.

That is an absolutely spectacular kit, in all senses, from top to bottom. The only thing I'm not a fan is the color of the sleeves in a darker tone, but that is a global Nike thing, so that can't be changed. Other than that, I love everything about it: the simplicity of the design, the shorts and socks totally blue again, all of it.
And more importantly: NO SPONSORS!!! That could be changed until the official launch if the club can cut a deal with Qatar or Ferrari in the next few days, but the new Nike deal might be enough in terms of shirt money next season.
Hey Nike, so you're giving us €100 million every year PLUS this kit? Well, I love you, Nike.
