OFFICIALLY OFFICIAL: Juventus release 2019-20 away kit at long last

It’s ... not bad?

It has been nearly three months since our last bit of Juventus-related kit news. That day involved plenty of outrage, with the Italian champions officially ditching their fabled stripes for the upcoming 2019-20 season in favor of a half-and-half type of look that remains about as far away from club tradition as they’ve ever done with a home kit.

This final Thursday of July brings us the kit Juve will likely wear just as much as their eco-friendly third kit next season. And this away kit is about simple as the home kit is full of risk to upset the masses.

There’s Moise Kean getting ready to dance. There’s Paulo Dybala looking handsome as usual. There’s Miralem Pjanic and Rodrigo Bentancur, too. It’s basically the same crew we saw — at least in part — for the home kit roll out back in mid-May.

Along the same lines of the gray away kit with black lettering and numbers from last season, this away kit is basically a redux of that but with white being the main color and red instead black everywhere else. The only other difference between last season’s away kit and this year’s away kit besides the color changes is the bit of rid piping at the end of each of the sleeves. The shorts are also red and white.

Other than that, it’s simple. Very, very simple.

Here’s the reasoning for the away kit’s look from Juve’s website:

The Away 2019/20 uniform contains these suggestions, which are visible and tangible, thanks to a futuristic graphic and revolutionary contrasting details that mark a new, courageous direction.

Specifically, the graphics of the new uniform start with a white base, inspired by the urban buildings and the structures that surround the Allianz Stadium, but with a particular look: in fact, the motifs drawn of the buildings and streets have been “remixed” to give life to a modern and trendy garment, designed for the new generations.

The disruptive white design in the middle of the shirt contrasts sharply with the bright red of the details, that are: the club logo, the adidas logos, the sponsors and the sleeves profiles, which dynamize the uniform.

Maybe that’s what some of the folks will like after the giant leap into the unknown with the complete redesign of the home kit. Some folks like the simple look, especially when it comes to a kit Juventus will only be wearing a handful of times over the course of a season.
