Please Never Happen Outside The US: Comparing Every Adidas MLS 2022 Authentic With The Replica Kit

The new Adidas 2022 MLS kits are again quite different in the replica and authentic versions.



Adidas MLS 2022 Authentic vs Replica Kits



The Adidas 2022 MLS replica and authentic jerseys come more or less with the same differences as the 2021 MLS jerseys.

Design



For the MLS, it is "unique" that the replica and authentic kits do not only have tech but also design differences.

Some kits are extremely differentAdidas' 2022 replica MLS kits do not only lack some badges. Instead, they also come with very different collars and sleeve cuffs.


What is good is that the replica comes with the same graphic/pattern if there is one.

Logos & Applications



The replica jerseys have stiched logos, while the authentic jerseys have rich-in-detail heat-applied crests. This is the same as it is for the big European teams from Adidas.

Adidas MLS' authentic kits do not feature Heat.Rdy but the Aeroready replica technology

Technologies



What is particularly odd is that the Adidas 2022 MLS authentic kits do not feature Adidas' Heat.Rdy material. They come with Aeroready technology, the same as the replica jerseys.


The difference between the authentic and the replica is the cut and the mesh (on the stripes and then on the back).
