In a quest to celebrate the club's rich history and strong roots, the Real Madrid 16-17 home kit boasts a very traditional design in white and blue, one of the most iconic alternative colors of Los Merengues. It was released on July 14, 2016.
Made by Adidas, the Real Madrid 2016-2017 kit boasts a very classy and traditional design, inspired by the very first shirts worn by Los Blancos in the early 1900s. A white base (officially Crystal White) is combined with subdued accents in a purplish blue (Ray Purple).
A traditional polo collar with blue trim rounds off the look of the Real Madrid 2016-17 home kit, which is combined with shorts and socks of the same style. The outer back of the collar of the Real Madrid 16-17 jersey reads the club name in a subtle manner.
The new Adidas Real Madrid home shirt stands in stark contrast to the last few Real Madrid home kits which featured bold new accent colors for the most part. The last Real Madrid kit to boast purple as secondary color was the 2007-08 Real Madrid home kit.
