Interesting!

The pockets on the short sleeve black kit look fake :unsure:/>

The kits have been advertised on refereeworld.com for the last month or so.

The kit looks good and there is a black version to replace the navy blue!!!!

The black one looks absolutely ridiculous - will look like the referee is wearing a vicar's collar ...

I'll give the benefit of the doubt until some proper photos are released. Hopefully they'll look better in real.

OK so the photos from the club world cup suggest it's no better in the flesh either!

Does not look like a good design or set of colours.

Don't think I will be buying any of that next season!

Lovely shirt. Can't beat black and white. The collar suits me as I'm a Eucharistic Minister at my Church lol. (really I am.......)

Don't like the gray/grey logo on the shorts. It's minging.

Socks disappointing. Why no white tops or 3-stripe?

I'm still having it though........

Also, the 'red' has a lovely metrosexual touch to it...

The Blue version was worn in Thursday's Europa match between Liverpool & Man Utd.

Disappointing from adidas, looks half baked. Collar just looks wrong. Adidas have made some decent referee shirts over the years, unfortunately this isn't one of them! :-(

As far as I can remember Adidas have never supplied socks with plain white tops as part of their referee kits and the 3 stripes socks were last seen at World Cup 2002 which is a shame as I much prefer that to the plain black currently on offer.

Hello.

The Milano (with the logo) is what the US referees are currently wearing. The "official" all black sock is the Milano sans the logo.

IMHO, this isn't adidas' best kit. It's a nice fit and the material is light and comfortable, but I feel like they phoned it in on the design. They removed the pocket tabs from the shirts and shorts, but decided to go with two strips of velcro on each side of the pocket rather than one in the middle. Makes getting into them with one hand more difficult than it needs to be.

I'm an Umbro man as everyone knows. Even as a teenager I preferred Umbro clothing to the more "fashionable" Adidas/Nike etc. And I always used Umbro Referee kit when it was available. I only switched to Adidas when Umbro stopped OFFICIALLY selling Referee kit in the UK. But I must praise Adidas for their quality and durability. I'm still using the Champion's League 2013/14 kit and I have to say it is as "black" now after 3 years of being washed as the day I bought it. I laugh at those Nike Referees in their used-to-be-black-but-now-grey kit.

BUT..... I'd have Umbro again in a minute.

Those damned Canadians refuse to sell me it lol........



I've now purchased the Adidas 2016 Euro kit, but I will still wear my Champion's League kit with yellow trim. I just love it......

Aye, and the "official" socks for the Champion's League 2013/14 kit had WHITE trim, which looked minging with the yellow trimmed shirt/socks, so I match mine with a pair of F50 for motion socks in back with yellow trim....
