The FIFA World Cup is finally here. 32 of the world’s best nations will be competing for the biggest prize in football at Qatar 2022, but most of the teams should also be equally interested in who comes out on top in the fashion rankings. Nigeria wowed the footballing world with their incredible Nike designs at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, but who will take the best kit crown at Qatar 2022?
The Uruguay home kit for the 2022 World Cup is largely standard, but the white collar and sleeves give the jersey a nice retro feel, evoking memories of the 1950 World Cup, the last time the country won the tournament.
Simplicity is key. Ghana and Puma have produced an absolute treat for their 2022 FIFA World Cup jersey with a plain white jersey featuring green, yellow and red trims on the sleeves. The black star in the middle for the black stars also somehow works perfectly.
Spain’s home strip for the 2022 FIFA World Cup is an excellent blend of modern design and technology with some retro elements, providing throwbacks to their kits from the 2010 World Cup and Euro 96.
There may be too much going on with the patterns and designs of this kit, but the superb colour contrast means it finds its way into our top ten. The light blue shade mixed with the red and yellow shoulder trim is top-tier stuff, and the badge placement in the centre also works as a treat.
Wales are heading to their first World Cup in 64 years at Qatar 2022, and Adidas have created a belter for Gareth Bale and co. to wear. The dragon crest, the white trims on the shoulders, the red on red, it’s perfect.
It’s plain, it’s blue and white stripes with black trims. But it works. Can’t go wrong with an Argentina home kit.
Nike has gone experimental with Brazil’s away kit for the 2022 FIFA World Cup and have knocked it out of the park with this blue and green strip. The leopard print on the sleeves is a superb touch, and the subtle detailing across the front makes it one of the top five kits to be worn in Qatar.
We love it when a kit can also tell a story, and Mexico’s away kit is a certified stunner. The kit draws inspiration from Mexico’s indigenous roots, and the gorgeous design is another win for Adidas at this World Cup.
After going for a plain white home kit, Adidas have jazzed things up for the Japanese away kit at this World Cup. The Adidas logo is neat, while the blue and white designs across the front paint a stunning picture.
This kit is certified to defy opinion in footballing circles, but for our money, it’s the best strip we are going to see at this FIFA World Cup. Nike has produced a work of art with this special strip designed to invoke 90s nostalgia with a modern feel. Nigeria 2018 has finally met its match.
