The Naija kits took the world by storm today and rightfully so. We’ve said our peace on them and turn our attention to other inspiring gems from the beautiful game. This week sees Nivelcrack drop their Red Devils collection, while the Football Gal shows off her brilliant embroidery work on a throwback Arsenal kit. Puma follow the wave by dropping a lifestyle look-book for the new Italy kits, Trevor Noah visits Kiev for the UCL Final and Usain Bolt trains in the new Puma “Illuminate” pack for a training session in Norway.
One of my favorite things about this weekly feature is seeing new cultures collide with our beloved beautiful game. Seeing brands like Louis Vuitton create a soccer ball holder for the World Cup makes us all warm and fuzzy inside. We also heavily endorse Kobe Bryant flipping through a World Cup Panini mag and a cheeky illustration of Atletico Madrid players riding Fortnite parachutes to the Europa League trophy. Without further explinations it’s time for another edition of This Weeks Instgram Best 11…
It’s been a busy week with brands prepping for the World Cup which is just 9 months away. From kits to the new official match ball Instagram has been on fire with images of all the latest drops as well as some other gems including scenes from MLS Playoffs and artwork. From Bleacher Report Football to our homies at Tens Club, here is our #BestOfBothWorlds Instagram posts of the week.
On the eve of the latest official match ball, the good people at Mundial Mag give a brilliant timeline portrait of it’s lineage. From Tango to Brazuka, the evolution is jaw dropping. Which one is your favorite?
Versus show us the latest Swedish National Team kit by adidas. The team has an uphill battle towards the World Cup as they face Italy in a playoff. At least the boys from Scandinavia will be looking fly win or lose.
It’s been a few weeks off from our #Bestofbothworlds IG feature, but we’re back at it again. Straight from the depths of our favorite social media app we bring you our favorite Instagram posts that inspire us and/or portray what we’re all about at KTTP, blending the beautiful game with culture, art music and more.
