    How come there is no thread about this, I thought it would have been here by now daunting at least 40+ pages.

    I guess I'll start it.

    USMNT New Kit and Crest coming 2016

    When is this happening? For the qualifiers? I haven't heard anything since last year October 2015?!

    Click the link, take a look, and see if you'd like.

    Black is better than highlighter yellow

    I like black.

    It makes me look skinner than what I already am not.

    Yeah might be soon, maybe before the two games in March? Current away jersey is on sale. Haven't worn the white home jersey in awhile. And with Copa America we might see a special 3rd kit for that tournament?

    Of course black doesn't make sense for a home jersey. Maybe away or alternate, but not home.

    US should be IMO
    home: white shirt, navy shorts, white socks
    away: navy shirt, white shorts, navy socks
    3rd: red shirt, navy shorts, navy or red socks

    I think the implication of the article is that it's the home jersey that's black.

    Thank god, I have always hated our crest and wished we could change it someday. We really could do/look better.

    Love the idea of a crest redesign......but black jerseys during summer games makes zero sense.

    From what I can discern, I believe the new USA kits were reported incorrectly. My understanding is that the home will be white like always, and the away will now be black. Trim is supposedly royal on both (yes, this clashes with the leaked crest featuring navy, but perhaps that will change). This information is taken directly from an online shop's listing which includes the color codes. Replicas will be priced $89.99 and authentics at $179.99 (that's a big bump on the authentics).

    Any idea when will they present the jersey, and/or go on sale?

    Not exactly, though a local soccer store of mine says they expect them to arrive in 2-3 weeks. Not sure if that coincides with the launch date (they sometimes sell before they are supposed to). Personally, I'm expecting them to debut in late March for the Guatemala matches...probably be unveiled a week or two before then, if I had to guess?

    I hate the idea of black souless Nike marketing jerseys for a year in which there is a huge international tournament on home soil. The US should always wear some combo of red white and blue. This is as bad as the crappy neon US women's jerseys from last year.
    Black jerseys are going to be awfully hot this summer, particularly when the opponent is trotting around in light colors.

    Encouraged to hear the crest is being redsigned, at least. I've long hated our crest.

    I still think our coolest kit design in ages were the Waldos with navy shorts. It's the closest thing we've ever come to "iconic."

    I'm fine with black so long as white remains the primary, which sounds like the case. Black is much more neutral than that strange neon color the women wear. I could see the black working out with red and blue accents, similar to the dark gray kit we had in 2008 with the red trim. That was nice.

    I kind of agree, Mexico had black, now they think we want to be like them.

    If not, they usually debut around February/March. i would assume we see them for Guatemala.

    Nike will spin some awful sh*t about the black kit being some hyper-venom-anti-christ-cool. Of course, the best part of the uniform will be on the inside of the neck/nape, where no one will ever see it...it'll feature stars and stripes, (perhaps even red, white and navy blue) or some other silly USA related symbol. :rolleyes:o_O

    I want to know when we are going to get a good alternative jersey again. I loved the red with the sash from a while back. I think black could work well, but it is concerning for this summer, when COPA games could take place during the day with significant sun/heat. My guess is they are short lived, as US soccer probably wants to get another 1/2 new home/away jerseys in before the 2018 WC.

    LOVE the idea of a new crest. Thank god.

    The article is from October 10th, so I'm not sure how accurate it really is.

    This one has grown on me too... but I don't like the new blue one.

    I tend like the brighter colors... black could be cool, but I am unsure if it is right for US soccer.
