So, with Nike sponsoring Bafana Bafana, I was hoping that their kits would be really great! But, the first limited edition kit looked 'cool' but only because it was Nike. It was really a tad to simple and toned down.
So I thought, with my previous two kit concept ideas looking quite cool, let's have a go at a Bafana kit.
As we all know, the green and gold will be very hard to shake off as the home colours of South Africa's teams. It's got to do with history and legacy and what not, but I propose; let's embrace our FUTURE in the away kit, with a little bit of history.
The South African flag is a gorgeous flag, it's got a mix of many colours but somehow looks aesthetically pleasing. YET, NONE of our sports teams have really incorporated this into their kits. I know just popping the flag on a shirt would look silly and clunky, BUT, if done in a classy, clever way, it can work!
So, to commemorate the 20th Anniversary of our flag, here are four conceptual design ideas for an AWAY strip for Bafana, with white as the main colour, and details of the flag put into the design subtley, with different uses of a chevron element. I used a base kit template from Hammer9 to start, then went wild from there.
Keep in mind also that these designs look cool as well when the yellow is replaced with yellow, green or black as the main colours as well. :)
