Everybody wants to talk about the best-looking kits, but no one wants to talk about the worst. That's why we're here. There have been some severe eyesores this term. Let's review the top 5 worst football kits of the 2023/24 season.
AC Milan Puma 23/24 Third Kit
My goodness. The 2023/24 Puma AC Milan third kit proclaims to bring people together, but it also sparks discussion. The shirt looks like a quixotic blend of unicorn toothpaste—even the stud Oliver Giroud can't make this kit look good. Paolo Maldini, maybe…
The mixed feelings around this kit are best summed up by Rossoneri's win against Newcastle in the Champions League group stages — a win that also saw them finish third in their group and drop to the Europa League.
What a horrible design for a club looking to rebound from last year's Premier League shortcomings and this year's Champions League ambitions. The sloppy zebra zig-zag pattern on yellow-green leaves you with a sour taste.
Said one Gunners fan: “Reminds me of that time my daughter got high from passively smoking my joint and I let her loose with my wife's highlighter pens. Absolutely dreadful,” tweeted one fan.
Portsmouth Nike Third Anniversary Kit 23/24
Roast your eyes on this beauty (or not!). Portsmouth's third kit for League One this season, made by Nike, looks like undercooked salmon. The color is a nod to the original home kit color worn from 1898 to 1909, but even those were superior.
Nike's Tropy V-template doesn't help either, made worse by the black short and white sock combination. Fashion is cyclical, except for this Portsmouth 125th anniversary kit.
Reading Third Kit 23/24
We don't mind the purple colorway but this Reading third kit isn't a Fiorentina 90s kit. This Macron shirt resembles a prehistoric Flintstones tunic mixed with Arsenal's away kit's zig-zaggy green line. Well, it's actually a turtle-shell pattern. Someone, please tell us we're wrong!
Inter Milan Nike Third Kit 23/24
No wonder Inter Milan's main sponsor, Paramount, is doing alternative kits this season — see the latest Transformer iteration. But the Nerazzurri's third kit is a swing and a miss.
“From the past to light a way for an astonishing future,” the club's third kit press release stated. Sure, Inter used orange in the 1950s before there's a reason it got relegated to third-kit status. But let's get real: Only the Dutch can justify the bright orange. This one smells. Only this can change my mind.
