2016 is coming to a close, and it really delivered on the soccer jerseys side. Choosing just 10 was really, really hard, but Soccer365 has managed to put together a list of the best 10 designs of the year.
10. Ajax 2016/17 away jersey
A modern, young looking kit. The fresh color combination and Amsterdam’s flag interpretation on the front the kit bring a streetwear feel to the design.

9. Ivory Coast 2017 home jersey
PUMA are always throwing great designs for their African teams. Ivory Coast’s new home kit features a very African themed design, with elephant tusks standing out on the back.

8. Croatia 2016 home jersey
A clever design revisiting the unforgettable 1998 World Cup kit. The fresh take on the checkered pattern looks like a waving flag on the stands.

7. Inter Milan 2016/17 home jersey
This may be a ‘love it or hate it’ choice, but it’s a bold way to modernize a classic striped shirt. The ‘waves’ that blur the black and blue stripes are definitely good looking.

6. Japan 2016 home jersey
Another great kit from Japan. It features 11 different shades of blue to represent the 11 players on the field defending the country’s colors.

5. Deportivo La Coruña 110th anniversary jersey
This limited edition kit has a lovely vintage style, and even the main sponsor logo has a retro look to make the design concept stronger.
4. FC Porto 2016/17 away jersey
Really stylish design featuring a night black sky with the Dragon Constellation in it to honor the club’s most famous nickname. Stunning, trendy and representative kit.

3. United States 2016 away jersey
The Nike Vapor Aeroswift kits were the most outstanding technological improvement of this year’s soccer shirts. This United States black jersey with patriotic sleeves is arguably one of the best looking in that collection.

2. Pumas UNAM 2016/17 home jersey
Beautiful home kit with a bold graphic on the front representing the mural painting from the National Autonomous University of Mexico’s library, one of Ciudad de Mexico’s landmarks.

1. West Ham United 2016/17 TIWFC jersey
A classy commemorative kit inspired by Thames Ironworks FC, a London-based club that would later evolve into the Hammers. The stealth look, boasted by the sponsor and Umbro’s logo in overtone to the fabric color, results into one of the smartest kits of the season.
