Top 5 Classic Nike 'Futura' Kits - Arsenal, Dortmund & PSG

Having made its big entry to European football in the late 1980s and early 90s, Nike based its new 2019-2020 third kits on these days, bringing back the classic 'Futura' logo alongside designs inspired by the archives.



Here's our Top 5 Nike kits from that period, featuring a small selection of designs worn by Arsenal, Dortmund and PSG, which were Nike's first major club contracts in Europe.

All Nike 19-20 Third Kits

5 - Arsenal 94-95 Home




Arsenal's 94-95 home shirt is as classic as it gets. It's red with a large collar and predominantly white sleeves. A subtle lightning pattern is present on this as well as the away from that season, a sign of what was to come in the next years.

4 - PSG 95-96 Home




With the Paris Saint-Germain 1995-06 home shirt, Nike managed something that seams impossible today: stay true to the French club's trademark 'Hechter' look, created by former investor and fashion designer Daniel Hechter. And it doesn't look half bad either.

3 - PSG 89-90 Home




PSG's 1989-90 home shirt by Nike is as classy as it gets. Featuring a blue-red stripe down the left side, a buttoned collr and a diagonal jacquard print, its influence is not lost on the 2019-20 third kit, which is directly based on it.

2 - Dortmund 94-95 Home




When Nike took over the Dortmund contract, the brand quickly changed the color of the home kits to a vibrant neon yellow, a move that wasn't like universally. It resulted in some very memorable kits over the years however, such as the 1994-95 home shirt with its distinct 'Wings' graphic on the sleeves.

The same template as used for the Nigeria kit that ended up inspiring the massive 2018 World Cup design.
