Wolfsburg & Kaizer Chiefs Share Nike Designs - Funny "Inspirations"

South African club Kaizer Chiefs released its new 21-22 home and away kits last Sunday - they boast outstanding designs that are, however, not completely unique for the club.

Kaizer Chiefs & Wolfsburg Share 21-22 Kit Design

The new Kaizer Chiefs 2021-22 away kit has the same pattern as the Wolfsburg 21-22 home kit. That is nothing extraordinary for Nike but what is odd is that both clubs have given totally different design inspiration for the same graphic, as spotted by @ZamielDaza.

Wolfsburg is inspired by car prototypes, Kaizer Chiefs by the African continent

Kaizer Chiefs' 21-22 away kit "black and iron grey with accent gold lines mapping out the African continent". Wolfsburg's 21-22 home kit "is supposed to be reminiscent of Erlkönige (masked car prototypes).

It is nothing all-new for Nike to use the same design for different teams - their 2020 Japanese J League jerseys all had designs of European teams, and there was also an explanation for the bespoke inspiration for some.
