Is Nike's New Tottenham 17-18 Third Kit Useless?

After Nike released their first-ever Spurs third kit this morning, a debate started up on social media if the new Tottenham Hotspur 17-18 Nike third kit would be too similar to the club's away kit. Let us get a bit into detail if Nike should have released a differently colored third shirt for the club...



Is Nike's Tottenham Hotspur 2017-2018 Third Kit To Similar To The Away Shirt?

Tottenham's 17-18 away and third kits feature a very similar color shade.


Nike's intended use for the new purple Tottenham Hotspur 2017-2018 is that the shirt is rather an extra European away kit than a kit to avoid kit clashes as the club the third kit "will be predominately be used as the away strip in European competition this season." However, with Tottenham Hotspur now having a white, a navy and a dark purple kit, they are not perfectly equipped for the Premier League season...



With West Bromwich Albion having released a traditional navy and white striped home kit for the 2017-2018 season, Spurs does not have a 'perfect' kit for the match at West Brom's Hawthorns stadium in early May 2018 (It is most likely that Spurs will wear the purple third kit in eight months).


Do you think the third kit is useless? Should have Nike released a differently colored third shirt for Tottenham? Do you think that any of the Spurs 17-18 kits differs enough from West Brom's home kit? Let us know in the comments below.
