Les Gones (The Kids) new home jersey is in OL’s traditional white with thin blue horizontal stripes. It uses one of adidas’ new designs for the 2014/15 kit cycle with a white v-neck with red trim.
Flashes in the blue and red of Olympique Lyon appear on the front and back of both sleeves while a red arc runs across the upper back of the shirt. The text “Nous sommes l’Olympique Lyonnais ” (“We are Olympique Lyonnais”) is printed on the inner neckline to reflect the strong identity shared by both players and supporters of the club.
3.Olympique Lyon Soccer Jerseys Release remain in fifth place in the 2013/14 Ligue 1 table after handing PSG just their second league loss of the season on Sunday. OL meet the money rich Parisians again next weekend in the final of the 2014 Coupe de la Ligue at the Stade de France.
Lyon are no strangers to experimentation with their kits, having worn some very, ahem, different numbers of the last few seasons. Fans will remember 2012/13’s “3D” away kit and the 2010/11 away and third kits inspired by a rug and the 80s, respectively. This time around however, Lyon’s kits are pure class.
The away kit features three shades of blue, dark on the top and light on the bottom, separated by a middle-toned slash that cuts across the shirt at an acute angle underneath the sponsor logo. The crew neck collar and adidas stripes are in brilliant white while the lighter blue color runs down the side of the shirt. The monochrome crest matches the darker blue shade while the shorts continue the lighter blue to the socks.
Les Gones will wear a gorgeous black kit for those times when the home and away kits simply won’t do. It’s a shame that its appearances will be so relatively few and far between. This shirt borrows the template that AC Milan’s home kit uses but in a much cleaner package. The shirt gets a ribbed effect with thin vertical stripes running from the rugby-style collar to the bottom hem. The collar and stripes are bright white once more with Lyon’s red and blue running down the sides of the shirt. The top is accented by a black-and-white crest and the theme continues to the kit’s shorts and socks.
