Update: We’re received photos of the upcoming Inter Milan Away kit 21/22 and have updated the article accordingly to include it below.
Now I’ve given Nike a bit of grief for their jersey designs so far, but I have to say, the brand from Oregon has absolutely knocked it out of the park for this one.
As the fashion capital of Italy, Inter Milan’s kits have tended to weigh more heavily on the stunning side of the scale (pun intended), even with their more outrageous designs.
Featuring a gorgeous snake skin design typically associated with luxury bags, and combined with black and gold accents, the Inter 21/22 is an early contender for jersey of the season. The snake motif takes inspiration from the Biscione, a historic symbol of the city of Milan.
Nike has always been adept at weaving in the Pirelli logo into the kit, but unfortunately, with Inter’s longstanding partnership with Pirelli having come to an end, it’ll be interesting to see how the new sponsor logo ties into this new kit.
Continuing on with the snake theme, the away kit takes inspiration from the club’s 2010/2011 away kit, which also featured an eye catching snake pattern, albeit on the side instead of slithering all over the kit.
I have to say that I’m less of a fan of this, which does give me throwbacks to my childhood days of playing Snake on my Nokia phones, and trying to maneuver my “snake” around the screen without bumping into itself. I do like the blue trimmings on the collar and the sleeve which gives a nice contrast to the white base, as compared to the 2010/2011 away kit which had a predominantly white look throughout.
Will the Serie A feel the sting of
Antonio Conte’s Simone Inzaghi’s Inter Milan team in the upcoming season? Quite possibly so. I can only imagine them winning in style with this home kit.
