It’s the news you’ve all been waiting for…(sort of).
According to Footyheadlines.com, Adidas and Arsenal will be reissuing the original 1991-93 away kit and a range of club training gear inspired by the same era. The retro collection will be available from January 2020.
The ‘Bruised Banana’ shirt – worn by Limpar, Merson, Wright, Rocastle, the famous back five and alike – has long been a cult classic with second-hand versions retailing for nearly £450.
Obviously, that’s way out of the price range of many, so a new run of the originals is very welcome. We’ve no idea of the price range but we’re guessing they’ll be similar to this season’s actual kits.
It looks as though a version of the club tracksuit – it’s slightly different to this one – is also available, as is a tracksuit/drill top thing. There’s also a snazzy sweatshirt. All of them feature the club crest that was in use 25 years ago.
