Should Adidas & Nike Release Unique Keeper Kits?

Update: Adidas and Nike have earned criticism on Twitter as more and more people have noticed that all the teams are wearing the same keeper kits. We think it is long overdue that the big brands start to release custom goalkeeper kits for their big teams again, at least custom colors.

Many of the football kits released by the brands in the past few years have been great, but one thing did not get really better - the goalkeeper kits. Will this change soon?

In the 1990s, the "golden age" of football kits, many goalkeepers wore one-of-a-kind uniforms of which many are iconic today.

The 2021-2022 goalkeeper kits of Adidas, Nike, and Puma did not feature bespoke looks for the teams but are based on the same template, respectively. This means that the keepers of Chelsea, Barcelona, Liverpool, and other Nike teams will wear the exact same kit design in many matches next season.

All Nike-sponsored teams could wear the same green keeper kitWhile NNike and Puma at least release one keeper kit with custom colors for the biggest clubs, Adidas does not do so. All Adidas 21-22 European goalkeeper kits are the same.

However, there are some signs that things are going to change.

Umbro released stunning bespoke 1990s keeper kits for three French teams, and Hummel released an early 1990s-inspired flames keeper design for the 21-22 season.

Adidas released custom-colored keeper kits for their Brazilian teams to celebrate "Goalkeeper's Day".

In fact, Nike occasionally creates unique goalkeeper shirts. For FC Barcelona, they created a stunning Champions League goalkeeper jersey for the 2018-19 season. For PSG, they created a custom yellow Jordan keeper uniform.
