On the eve of top flight football’s domestic return we at Mixtape Madness took a brief moment to appreciate some of our favourite and not so favourite kits released for the upcoming season!

Here is our list of the best new threads that hopefully your team will either see success or failure in this upcoming season! 

Club America Home & Away Kit

Despite playing in Mexico, Club America have managed to establish themselves in the football zeitgeist and that’s almost exclusively through their striking and stylish kits. This upcoming season keeps that stylish reputation in tact, with Nike dropping off a bold and fashionable two pack with some obvious retro flair. – Jesse

Ajax Third Kit 

Adidas and Ajax have unveiled their third kit for the 2023-2024 season, a predominantly black jersey adorned with silver details and a distinctive diamond print. This design pays homage to the talented players produced by Ajax’s youth academy, known as De Toekomst, a core element of the club. The black patterning on the shirt I think is designed perfectly, and the fact it almost camouflaged the sponsors on the shirt I feel is a real bonus as well. Clean as you like. – Harvey

Burnley Third Kit

This design is perfect for the sleek and saucy football that Vincent Kompany has brought to Turf Moor. The blue and black fit well together with the gold in the middle popping out at you, while the mixture of circles and lines work nicely. It’s a nice smart-casual vibe, that the Clarets will hope to spur them on to victory. – Tom

Fulham Home Kit

Fulham have definitely found themselves a hit with their home shirt, but this pink number leaves a lot to be desired. Hopping onto the Barbie hype train, the Cottagers Welsh midfielder Harry Wilson has even dyed his hair blonde to show true Ken-ergy. We’ve seen pink kits work in the past with Juventus’ 2015/16 offering a stand out of the genre, but this shirt is far too bright with far too little detail to be exceptional. – Joe

Corinthians Fourth Kit

Corinthians unveiled their fan designed fourth kit in May. Simple and clean, the design by Leonardo Fojo, pays homage to the club’s first uniform and the Campo do Lenheiro. Featuring dust details representing the hardworking fans, the “É o equipe do povo” (It’s the people’s team) inscription, the Corinthians Paulista shield and a centred Nike logo, the club’s working-class identity, morals and values as a community based football club are all emphasised. – Harvey

AC Milan Home Kit


This kit for me is a thing of beauty. Although simplicity in my personal preference is key to a ‘nice’ football kit, the elaborate patterning amongst the deep red signature AC colour makes this shirt. Although the majority of AC Milan shirts tend to follow similar suit in different stylistic ways, this strip feels like the real deal, and definitely one of, if not the nicest home kit from the Serie A this season. – Harvey

Crystal Palace Home Kit

This gives me Spider-Man vibes with the webs, and I love it. Red and blue always look lovely next to one another with the slender white line down the middle separating both halves nicely. Watching Olise and Eze bursting down the wing in this is going to look great. – Tom

Bayern Munich Home Kit

When kit makers do away with tradition and try to experiment you usually end up with something bordering sacrilege. However Adidas have knocked it out the park this year with their risky white dominant Bayern Munich home shirt. A super clean and non-traditional strip for a club who despite continued domestic success are looking for a revolution. – Jesse

Wolverhampton Wanderers Away Kit

Red is my favourite colour, but alongside the design with a variety of shapes, this is a standout. It feels fresh and new, and the green on the shoulders and sleeves contrasts well with the red. The gold lines and badges are the cherry on top, finishing off what is a lovely shirt that will hopefully shine better than Wolves’ transfer business. – Tom

Everton Home Kit

The Toffees have fallen upon hard times on the pitch in the past few seasons, but Hummel have delivered some fresh threads to usher in the first season of the Sean Dyche era. The collar sets this kit apart, with blue detailing that looks like the support structures across Goodison. The iconic Hummel chevrons make up the upper sleeve detailing, bringing another dimension to the kit. Smart and understated, the blue side of Liverpool will be hoping a better kit brings them better fortunes for the upcoming season. – Joe

Walthamstow Home & Away Kit 

A collaboration on home and away kits with William Morris Gallery, Admiral and Wood Street Walls has produced one of the finest designed shirts from this season. Competing in a division of the National League, the creation of this kit took the stance of ‘for the people, by the people’, taking into consideration recommendations and opinions from those who are closest to the club. The patterning is so unique and this kit strikes me very much as a statement piece; it will definitely bring some more noise to Walthamstow FC at the start of this season. – Harvey

Bournemouth Third Kit

It’s an exciting time on the south coast with Bournemouth getting to work under the tutelage of their first overseas coach, Andoni Iraola. The Cherries however have moved back towards tradition with this blue and yellow number, paying homage to a cult classic from the 90’s that was worn by club legends Steve Fletcher and Matty Holland. The stylised V collar and bold geometric blocks help bring the kit to life, while the colours used offset each other well.  – Joe

Celtic Special Kit 

I’m not accusing Adidas of playing favourites but when a team gets a kit like this it’s hard not to come to that conclusion. A special kit for a special and historic club with design very much put first. Adidas do their best Susan Storm impression and become “invisible” on the classic looking striped number. What the kit is commemorating exactly and how the final design i.e. sponsor logos will end up is still unclear but at the very least let’s hope all involved see reason and keep it as clean as possible. – Jesse

Nottingham Forest Away Kit

After a busy and messy transfer window last summer, Forest has kept it straightforward this year. Also doing that is this kit, which doesn’t try to do too much, but what it does, it does it well. The blue wavey stripes over the white are pleasant and will hopefully allow Morgan Gibbs-White to show off his skills. The black lines on the shoulders do the job, making for a design that ticks the boxes. – Tom

Dishounrable mentions:

Leeds United Third Kit

Just like their form last season, this Leeds United jersey is an absolute mess. A cross between a towel and obnoxious art, there is too much going on here and the brightness is a sight for sore eyes. It’s not the worst kit I have ever seen, but it certainly stands out for all the wrong reasons. – Tom

Liverpool Away Kit

Contrary to many opinions, personally I am not a fan of the Liverpool Away Shirt whatsoever. Green is a statement colour and very hard to nail as a featuring colour on a football shirt; the asymmetrical nature of the white parts make this shirt not look easy on the eye. It feels almost as if there’s too much going on, with the sponsors looking crammed amongst whatever clear space there is left. – Harvey

Arsenal Away Kit

This one is pretty self explanatory. As much credit as we’ve given Adidas in this article this is one of the most garish kits they’ve made in a long time. Some people profess it to be the new bruised banana, only time will tell but I wouldn’t put my house on it.
