Ever since Arsenal ended their kit deal with Nike and jumped ship to Puma instead, there hasn’t been much difference made to the design of the shirt itself. Puma have stayed true to the classic red and white design that is synonymous with the Gunners and it has resulted in a smooth transition from one kit maker to another for the club.
However, the German sports brand were bound to make a few tweaks eventually; it’s the easiest way to showcase the brand’s unique style. According to FootyHeadlines, a site known for leaking kit designs before they release, Puma have finally done just that.
Whilst the sleeve is still expected to be white and the Arsenal cannon will be present on the shirt, the shade of red will be darker than normal. The last time this happened was during the 2005-06 season; that kit was unofficially known as the “Goodbye Highbury” edition.
