It’s not often a brand has to pay respects to two countries and a city and a state all in one jersey, but that’s what adidas have undertaken with their 2019 MLS All-star jersey design. And somehow… they’ve managed it.
This year’s all-star top uses a faded graphical design featuring both the stars symbolic of the American flag and the maple leaf representing the Canadian flag – both the countries that make up Major League Soccer. Underneath lies the purple colors synonymous with the brand of soccer played in the all-star game’s 2019 location – Orlando, Florida. Further representative of the location, the jersey features a heat-stamped “407” on the back neck for the city’s area code, plus an aerospace-themed raised rubber jock tag meant to shout out Cape Canaveral’s aerospace endeavors. They’ve managed to fit a lot into this one, and keep it looking nice all at once.
