Chelsea’s 2020-21 third kit combines vintage club colours, Nike sneaker heritage and a dose of 1990s nostalgia to create a fresh look for the new season.
The kit, which Chelsea will wear for our European campaign, is part of a wider Nike collection which celebrates jersey culture and the iconic Air Max archives.
The Blues’ new design is heavily influenced by the much-loved original Air Max 180, a shoe which was first released in 1991 and also shares the inspirations of the Chelsea kits of the era.The colours shine through in a third kit which takes all those influences and creates a sharp, modern football kit.
The primary colour is ember glow, with ultramarine blue playing a strong supporting role. The blue appears on the jersey’s V-neck collar, shoulders and on vertical stripes which gradually fade away down the front of the shirt. Ember glow shorts and blue socks complete the full look.The 2020-21 Chelsea third kit is available on 10 September from the official online store and the Stamford Bridge Megastore.
