Why haven’t Spurs worn their away kit after 13 games this season?

The North London club have been seen in everything except their actual away kit

Football kits and how they are chosen are fascinating.

How do clubs decide whether they should completely redesign their kit by changing one thing every season or completely redesign it by changing two things?

Nike produced three lovely strips for Spurs this season, all with fancy trimmings and costing the fans around £60 a pop.

Dedicated supporters will have obviously bought the home kit and then possibly splashed out on their away strip so they can match up with the team on the road.

But after 13 games this season Spurs haven’t been seen in their navy away kit once.

They’ve played away from home eight times this season and it’s either been the white strip or the trippy teal number with a map of North London on it.

Interestingly the third kit is officially the ‘European away kit’ and yet Spurs have played in it in domestic games rather than the standard away kit.

Back in September Spurs played Huddersfield in the league and opted for the third kit to clash with the Terriers’ blue and white despite having a dark navy kit available.

Again against Brighton it was the third kit to clash with blue and white instead of the lesser-spotted navy.

In the the rest of their away fixtures this term they have played in the white strip – but those eagle-eyed fans will remember seeing the Spurs boys play in navy once this year.

Is that official Spurs kit?

In the summer, on pre-season tour, Spurs turned out in the above design for a game against Girona.

There is some lovely work on the shoulders and the fade on the socks is outstanding.

So why haven’t they worn it now the season proper has started!?

Spurs fans could have to wait a full 17 more games before Fulham away on January 20th to see it.
