Nike have absolutely smashed Barcelona's kit designs this season.
The home shirt has moved away from the traditional red and blue stripes that we've seen for many years and that has been replaced with a checkered pattern. Not bad at all.
Barca's away kit is also classy - it's primarily yellow with a red and blue sash across the front to remind everyone of the club's colours.
But it's the third shirt that really steals the show.
As with most of Nike's change kit designs this season, the La Liga champions have been given a retro vibe.

It's a turquoise shirt covered in a diamond-shaped jacquard pattern that's inspired by the city's coat of arms. The v-neck collar is red and blue, which perfectly compliments the retro Nike logo.
Absolutely beautiful. Each of those kits is a must-have for Barca fans, who will look forward to seeing their stars turn out in such style over the course of the campaign.
Although the 2019/20 season has only just kicked off, it appears the Blaugrana's home kit for next season has already been leaked. Check out some images below.
Very interesting. A rough translation of the above tweet reads:
"The design that we will see for the next Barcelona shirt. There may be some different things (neck, cuffs), but it is confirmed that the stripes will have that style."
So it appears that Barca will only be moving to the checkered pattern for one season, with a return to the classic stripes on the cards for 2020/21.
We've got to admit, the leaked shirt does look smart, especially with the yellow stripe tint perfectly complementing the other colours.
But will we see Lionel Messi and his teammates actually lining up in a shirt that looks like that next season? Only time will tell.News Now - Sport News
