The level of detail in our away kit is insane

Allow us to run you through some of the finer details in the new Manchester United away kit for the 2021/22 season, starting with the inspiration behind it.

This season’s away kit is special for several reasons: not only is it inspired by one of the most iconic kits in our history, it’s also been constructed with such precision and attention to detail that it’s more than just a jersey, it’s a statement too. 

You may have seen the incredible detail in our 2021/22 home kit, and we’re proud to say that the same attention to craftsmanship has gone into the away kit.

United fans were recently surveyed in a poll to see what their favourite kit of all time is and, perhaps unsurprisingly the winner was the ‘snowflake’ away strip from the 1990-92 seasons. It’s a kit that has transcended generations and has, simply put, become a cult classic.

United and adidas were proud to unveil the new third kit on Friday morning.
That’s why this season’s away kit has taken inspiration from the iconic 'snowflake' kit, adopting an eye-catching colour palette and pattern that makes it a real standout piece. It wouldn’t look out of place anywhere, at the stadium or down the skatepark, the choice is yours. Imagine your next fit by visiting United Direct now.

This jersey quite literally puts the ‘M’ in Manchester United. If you take a closer peek, you can see an ‘M’ has been woven into the pattern of the shirt. Other iconic kits have displayed this feature, but this season see’s it on an updated & contemporary design that echoes one of the most recognisable shirts in the game. 

If you take a closer peek, you'll spot that an 'M' has been woven into the pattern, it's the United DNA.

Made for the fans, this jersey utilises a double knit fabric construction alongside adidas’ AEROREADY technology to provide moisture-wicking comfort.

Wherever you go, wherever you are, you'll be proudly representing Manchester United in style, that's for sure. 

Make sure you visit United Direct for a closer look at the range.

The away kit shorts are constructed from a soft polyester and are decorated in a darker blue colour, with an embroidered Manchester United badge offering a tonal aesthetic on the thigh. adidas panelling runs on the outside of each leg to provide effortless style and a clean look. 

The socks feature the vibrant pattern all over to complete the look, and feature woven adidas and United branding throughout. This offers support and comfort when you need it most, thanks to their cosy construction. 

Seriously, how nice is our 2021/22 away kit?

That's all from our latest rundown on the new away kit, which we're sure you'll love just as much as us.
