Which Is The Best? Nike Global Streamlined Third Kits | 2014 - 2018

For the already fourth time, Nike will release streamlined third kits for its top clubs this year. Nike introduced the idea of similar-themed third jerseys in the 2014-15 season when the brand released the 'Hi Vis' collection and has since then launched a lot of kits featuring similar looks. We take a look at all of them.

Nike 2014-15 Third Kit 'Hi-Vis' Collection

The first-ever streamlined Nike third jerseys boasted stunning flash colors both for the base and for the details. The main feature of the jerseys was that each Nike 2014-15 third kit consisted of two tones of the main color, with the front featuring a lighter tone than the darker back to create a sense of speed and 'to help make an impact on the pitch'.

Interestingly, it was the only time that Manchester United & Juventus received a streamlined third kit from Nike as both switched to Adidas for the 2015-16 season. Corinthians also received a third kit with the streamlined design.

Nike 2015-16 Third Kit 'Decept' Collection

Under the umbrella of the Nike 'Decept' Kit collection, all Nike 15-16 third kits shared the same design principles and inspiration. While the first third kits combined a classic template with hi-vis colors, the Nike Decept third jersey were completely modern featuring a gradient design on the sleeves and the shorts.

PSG, however, received an exclusive version without the gradient stripes (the club should also get a custom, more unique 'streamlined' third kit next year). AS Roma received a streamlined third kit for the first time that season.

Nike 2016-17 Third Kit Collection

Nike's global 2016-2017 third kit template introduced a streamlined gradient look, fading from the top towards the shorts. Paris Saint-Germain, however, again received a custom unique 2017-2018 third jersey. Their luminous all-white third kit is a nod to Paris' reputation as the City of Light.

Nike also released jerseys with the 2016-2017 third kit design for Club America and Corinthians.

Nike 2017-18 Third Kit Collection

The Nike 17-18 third kit collection brings streamlined looks to more clubs than ever before (Chelsea, Tottenham + Atlético Madrid. who are part of Nike's third jersey collection for the first time ever).

The new Nike 2017-18 third jerseys boast subtle camouflage designs with the name of the city on the back for the first time. Barcelona's and PSG's new jerseys additionally come with bespoke details on the sleeve stripe (inspired by Gaudi & the Eiffel Tower).
