The design of the new kits has been a personal passion for adidas designer, Inigo Turner who is a lifelong Manchester United fan. Turner stated:
At adidas we have been on a real journey in creating these new kits for Manchester United. This landmark sponsorship is not the first time we have partnered with the Club and it is with these iconic kits of the past that we drew our inspiration from. We have aimed to break expectations by reengineering simple but impactful design features such as the classic v-neck collar and the iconic three-stripe detailing down the arms as our commitment to giving Manchester United a truly ground breaking kit for the 2015/16 season.
We had eyes on the ground at the adidas Manchester United 2015/16 kit launch tonight, as we took in a first hand look at the new kit. Everything about the venue paid homage to the older design kits, but it was inspired with the ideals of modern designs. Daley Blind and Phil Jones were the players on hand debuting the kits.
