Juventus' new 2016-17 adidas away kits have officially arrived

Just a hint: It's kinda nice.

Wednesday, July 6, 2016, marks the day that most of Juventus' players will make their way to Vinovo to begin the first step in what many hope to be a wonderful season both domestically in Italy and on the European stage as well. It will also be known as the day that we've come to officially see what Juve players will be wearing away from home a good amount of the time.

Behond, your 2016-17 season Juventus away kit, one that is very easy on the eyes.

Oh man. That's nice. That's really, really nice.

Blue jerseys have been some of the nicer Juventus away kits in somewhat recent memory. The design, as is posted on Juventus' website, goes as follows: "Drawing inspiration from the club's own tradition, the new away kit was designed to emphasise the tight bond between Juventus and Italy and to recall the blue jersey worn during the UEFA Champions League in 95/96 season. Hence the idea of the blue colour for the away jersey with a reinterpretation of an all-time classic in a most innovative way."

That blue jersey brings back a lot of feelings for the older Juventini in the audience seeing as it's the last time Juventus has held the Champions League trophy above their heads after a final. Yep, lots of feelings.

Throw in basic white shorts like were the case in last season's home kit and you have something that is going to look slick come the first time they bust it out this upcoming season. Not bad for a second kit, I must say. The adidas folks have done quite good with this one, so a round of applause to them. More of these good options, not crappy ones.
