AC Milan have officially unveiled their new away shirt for the upcoming season and it looks more or less exactly like the leaks that emerged in recent weeks. In short, this is a really good one from PUMA.
The fans were somewhat disappointed with the home kit initially, but it has grown on most fans even if it’s not a traditional look. The away kit, on the other hand, was liked immediately when the leaks started to emerge.
The shirt has a white background and nice grey detailing, which is something that PUMA have added to further assert Milan as a fashion brand. The red and black stripes are a nice touch and remind us of the away kit in the 2011/12 season.
On their website, Milan published the following statement about the shirt: “Today, global sports company PUMA proudly introduces the new AC Milan Away kit for the 2023/24 season, designed to celebrate Milan’s place at the intersection of football, fashion and design.
“Introduced by the Club in 1910, the white Away kit became an iconic part of the AC Milan identity, earning the nickname “The Lucky One” thanks to its triumphant record in six European Finals. This season PUMA and AC Milan present a chic new take on the famous Away jersey by taking distinct features of the AC Milan crest and forming a graphical all-over pattern inspired by the fashion houses of Milan and traditional fashion patterns. The kit effortlessly blends the Club’s rich football legacy with the understated elegance of a city renowned as a fashion capital.
“Marco Mueller, PUMA Senior Head of Product Line Management Teamsport Apparel, commented: “Both PUMA and AC Milan are deeply rooted in football heritage. Milan is a city defined by football and fashion, and the new Away kit is a reflection of this. The contemporary design mixes the classic and traditional Away kit colors with a fashion forward style. We believe we have created a kit that sits perfectly on the intersection of football, fashion and design – and we can’t wait to see it on the field next season .”
“I am so excited to have joined a Club as historic and iconic as AC Milan”, said Christian Pulisic . “I am also very happy that we will be touring the United States for pre-season where I get to wear the amazing new kit.
