Africa Cup of Nations – The Best and Worst Kits you’ll see this season

The Africa Cup of Nations starts this Saturday and on show will be some of the best and worst kits you’ll see this season. There are some stunning efforts to the downright bland, some absolute horror shows and a little bit of kit porn! There’s a real 90’s vibe running through some of these kits as well, the days of the patterned fabric are back!

These two Cameroon Kits are absolute Porno! Proper 90s vibe coming off that home kit. Although I’ve no doubt Roger Milla is playing somewhere in the world still its a proper throwback to USA 94 vibe about this shirt. Even better its not a onesie and it has sleeves!

Bland Bland Bland, The Tiny details around the shoulders are nice but the rest of the kit is just plain bland.  Its worse than some of Nike’s England kit offerings.  If Puma can do such a great job for Cameroon, why do they produce dross like this for the tournament favorites!

I quite like the Retro look around this one too, that home kit is as bright as they come but its definitely got an African Cup feel about it.  The Manufacturers should be proud of this effort.

The nicest thing its possible to say about this kit is that is functional, as in you could wear it as a football kit. Nike seem to have let the designers have the day off with this one and just called the warehouse for yellow and green shirts and shorts whilst hastily sewing a bad on them.

The Home kit looks pretty standard but that away kit… That’s the most Generic effort at a kit we’ve seen in a long time! Its a white shirt with a badge sewn on it! Boring Boring Boring. Presumably Algeria fans were excited about their teams chances in this tournament but that kit doesn’t represent the look of a team in with a shout of winning this competition!

Or, is it Guinea away? We just don’t know! One thing we can be certain of, they don fancy the old public PR shots of their kit instead preferring to see it strewn on a desk.

Gabon

A Nice little Yellow and Blue Number for the good citizens of Gabon.

If you are going to do detailing around the shoulders as your thing, then you might want to consider making it a bit more visiable. Puma doing the right thing wrongly here.

How to do shoulder detailing properly in Ghana, if you’re going to do it on an all white shirt, do it well. The way the detailing is structured on this does make it a lot easier on the eye compared to something that is essentially the same as Senegal’s kit
