Barcelona have officially launched their away kit for the new 2016/17 season. Made by Nike, the new away kit introduces a striking and never-seen-before look for the La Liga champions, combining purple with black and pink.
Based on Nike’s Vapor kit template, already used for the Barcelona 16-17 home kit as well as the brand’s Copa America and Euro offering, the Barcelona 2016-17 away kit is predominantly purple with dark navy sleeves and pink brandings.
Whereas purple has so far not been used for a Barcelona match jersey, an almost identical combination as the ‘Purple Dynasty / Hyper Pink’ of the Barcelona 16-17 away kit was used for the Barcelona training jersey in the second half of the 2014-15 season.
Continuing the design of the shirt, the shorts of the new Barcelona 16-17 away kit are also purple and pink. Following another scheme introduced by Nike lately, the striking appearance of the new Barcelona away kit is completed with pink socks.
