There are only a few days left in the 2014 Winter Olympics, but that doesn't mean we can't look ahead to the 2014 World Cup. The biggest tournament in futbol (and maybe all of sports) begins in June in Brazil. Over the last few months, adidas has been rolling out everything from team kits to the World Cup game ball. And last week, they gave us more gear to look out.
Last Thursday, the rolled out away kits for four teams: Argentina, Russia, Germany, and Spain. Each kit was built with lightness in mind (Brazil can get pretty warm), and they feature design elements native to their national heritage. The Russian look, for example, is inspired by the Soviet astronauts of the 1960s, and Spain draws on the electric nightlife of the country's biggest cities. The Germany kit is especially cool. It's black-and-red stripes, rugby collar, and buttons set it apart from the rest of the national looks.
Here are few images of the four kits (that's Argentina at the top of the page). Check them out, and let us know which is your favorite in the comments section below!
