Nike’s new design has certainly got its own fans since unveiling Inter and Barcelona’s home kits. Aside from these two clubs, Arsenal, Real Madrid and Manchester United have also received incredible home kits for the new campaign.


Before we go on to discuss the

, it is perhaps better to acknowledge the fact that it was


who put an end to Juventus’ reign over the Italian Serie A by lifting the Scudetto two seasons ago. Even though it was AC Milan who finally won the league last season, Inter have arrived with more firepower to push on for yet another great season of football.

That is why Nike has provided them with one of the best home kits of the 2022-23 season so that the Italian side can rely on their colors to strike fear into the hearts of their rivals. Inter’s new home kit is inspired by the club’s prior classic designs and features several focal points that are worth mentioning.

Aside from the horizontal line that stretches all the way from one sleeve to the other, the classic vertical stripes add to the strength of the backbone that Inter’s home kit has. The club’s crest appears in its original design, showcasing a single star on top, while the Nike Swoosh and the sponsor logo both appear in white.


Next on the list of best and worst home kits unveiled for the 2022-23 season is


’s home kit, which resembles that of Inter’s, but is far more superior thanks to the way how colors blend in with the design. The whole presentation of the design looks better in Barcelona’s home jersey, which considering how bad their previous home kit was, is as surprising as their quite busy summer transfer window.

With the Nike Swoosh and the sponsor logo both appearing in gold and with a subtle pattern on the surface of the shirt, the Blaugrana have certainly got themselves one of the

best home kits of the 2022-23 season

. Xavi has been doing some remodeling at the club and he has already signed Robert Lewandowski, Raphinha, Jules Kounde and more. We will have to wait and see if these players can perform together as well as how their home kit has performed so far.

Manchester United

The Red Devils are in turmoil right now with one of their greatest stars ever reportedly wanting to leave the club after spending a single season upon his return. Cristiano Ronaldo might be on the news every day, but

Manchester United

have at least got their home kit to be proud of. Even though Manchester City are the ones reaping the rewards and lifting the Premier League trophy, United are doing their best to finally lift themselves up and get back into the top after not being able to do so for so many years since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement.

While we might have to wait a while before we could see how they perform in the new campaign, we at least know that the club’s supporters will back their beloved club by purchasing what is one of the better designs amongst the

best and worst home kits unveiled for the 2022-23 season

. City’s rivals have unveiled a bold and slick home kit for the new season, which is quite apparent from its polo collar design.

The collar is embedded into United’s history and no one knows it better than Inigo Turner, the Design Director at Adidas, who believes that it is important to pay homage to the club’s rich history by designing such a collar.

Real Madrid

No one would even dare come close to

Real Madrid

’s trophy numbers in the Champions League and other competitions. The Spanish giants are without a doubt one of the biggest clubs in the world and Adidas certainly know that for a fact since they always design great and sometimes iconic home kits for Los Blancos. Amongst the best and worst home kits unveiled for the 2022-23 season, Real Madrid’s home kit certainly belongs in the former group with its traditional all-white strip.

The details mostly come in black, except for the unique purple design on the anterior side of the collar and the shoulder stripes. The unique design reads “120 years” in Spanish, which is obviously commemorating Real Madrid’s 120th birthday. Having won the double last season, Carlo Ancelotti and his men are definitely eager to kick off the new season to win more trophies. But will they be able to stop their archrivals from pushing for the La Liga trophy?


Next on the list of best and worst home kits unveiled for the 2022-23 season is


’s home jersey, which has got the club’s supporters hopeful and excited for the new season. The Gunners have signed several players this season, including Manchester City’s star striker Gabriel Jesus, who has already proven himself to be a lethal goal scorer in the preseason friendlies.

Aside from how well things are going for the London-based club on the pitch, their recently unveiled home kit is doing even better off it. With a polo collar similar to that of Manchester United’s Arsenal’s home kit comes with a red base which showcases white details on the front. The zigzag details on the collar certainly add more to the style of the shirt and many are certainly eager to get their hands on one of these beauties.

Worst home kits of the 2022-23 season

Now to be fair, the kits we are about to see in this category are far from being the worst designs in history. They may not be particularly bad either. These unfortunate designs simply did not manage to perform as well as their designers might have hoped as they did not meet the standards they had set out to meet. Having gone through the first group on the list of best and worst home kits unveiled for the 2022-23 season, let us see which designs are amongst the poor performers of the season.



have lost their grip on the Italian Serie A for a couple of years now and it seems that things are getting worse every season. With Paulo Dybala and Matthijs de Ligt’s departure over the course of the summer transfer window, the Bianconeri have got a tough season ahead considering how intense the competition has gotten in recent seasons.

With that in mind, Juventus fans deserved to at least get a decent home kit for the new campaign, yet they received one of the worst home kits of the 2022-23 season. With an all-white base, Juve’s new home shirt features a rather unorthodox stripe pattern, which is formed of hundreds of little triangles instead of simple vertical black stripes. The design is certainly a daring one from Adidas, but maybe they could have stuck with the old ways instead.

Atletico Madrid

While some of the designs on the list of

worst home kits of the 2022-23 season

are underperformers,

Atletico Madrid

’s new home kit is definitely one of the worst kits of the season with a rather bizarre look. The new design makes Atleti players look more like candies rather than football players according to some football trolls online. With the horrible uneven stripes that shift their route midway, perhaps the only good thing about Atletico’s new season is the rumors about Cristiano Ronaldo wanting to join Los Rojiblancos in a shock move.

Manchester City

Manchester City

failed to lift the Champions League trophy yet again after they were defeated in the semifinals by their league rivals Liverpool, who went on to lose against Real Madrid in the final. Despite their failures in the Champions League, City have dominated the Premier League in recent years and they are beginning to gain more and more fans from all around the world.

However, their new home kit could damage the reputation they have built for themselves as it has got its own special place in the second group on the list of best and worst home kits unveiled for the 2022-23 season.

With a sky-blue base, Manchester City’s home kit does not feature many interesting details as the only detail worth mentioning is the red and white hoops on the collar and on the cuffs. Puma are desperate to make people forget about the horrible copy-pasted third-kit design they provided for top teams in Europe last season. But they will have to do a lot more than what they have done this season to make up for their past mistakes.

AC Milan

AC Milan

are the reigning champions of the Serie A and they intend to retain their position as Serie A champions this season as well. Even though their new home kit is not necessarily an ugly one, it could certainly be better than what it actually is. Milan fans definitely expected more of their champions, yet they were presented with a rather mediocre football kit. The base of the shirt is obviously black and it features red stripes as tradition requires. However, these stripes come in an as soulless as possible style, making it look more like prison bars than anything else.

Bayern Munich

The final item on the list of best and worst home kits unveiled for the 2022-23 season is Bayern Munich’s home kit for the new season. People are divided on this one and it was quite difficult to decide which group of football kits it belonged to. It is without a doubt on the line and deciding whether it is a good or a bad football kit only depends on one’s personal preferences.

The all red base of the shirt is complemented with white horizontal stripes, which differ in thickness in certain spots. The shoulder stripes and all the logos appear in white as well, except for the club’s badge, which appears in its original style. Having signed the likes of Sadio Mane and Matthijs de Ligt, the Bavarians are truly a powerhouse of European football once again and football fans can certainly count on the German giants making their presence felt amongst other top teams in Europe.
