Leeds United have had a number of memorable kits over the course of their history, from the classic one of the team that dominated England in the 1970’s, to the memorable kits of the team that embarked on a European journey in the early 2000’s.
In the last ten years, the kits haven’t been quite as memorable, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t nice.
The last ten years as a whole has probably been forgetful in the grand scheme of Leeds’ history, due to the exile from the top flight.
Nevertheless, Elland Road has been packed throughout, and many of the fans come sporting their favourite shirt of their Leeds heroes.
Here, we look at five of their kits from the last decade, ranked from the ones we dislike the most, to the ones we take a fondness to for one reason or another.
Do you agree, or can you think of other kits that were either beautiful or horrible to look at? Let us know in the comments.
We weren’t fond of the 2011-12 strip. It seemed to have a few too many elements to it and just didn’t look aesthetically pleasing at all.
One sleeve had a yellow dash while the other had a blue dash, which would’ve looked good if they were symmetrical, but it looked unbalanced.
The 2015-16 kit divided opinion as it didn’t have a sponsor after a fallout with Enterprise Insurance.
Some liked it for its traditional plainness, but on the contrary, it looked a little boring and mundane. It was all white and didn’t have much to it.
We can’t make our minds up on 2016-17’s kit. This was the first year that Leeds had 32Red as their sponsor, as well as the first year of Kappa as the manufacturer.
We like the kit design overall, but not sure about the 5 Kappa logo’s down each leg of the shorts.
2012-13 was one of our favourite kits of the last few seasons.
The yellow dashes on the shorts and up the side of the shirts added something aesthetic to the design, and the shirt is perfectly balanced with blue, white and yellow.
Whether it is entirely coincidental or not, kits from seasons where the team have performed on the pitch seem to be remembered more than others.
The 2009-10 home shirt was one of those, with memories of the likes of Jermaine Beckford and Luciano Becchio in these kits as Leeds ran away with League One.
