Entering its third season as Valencia shirt supplier, Adidas today launched two new Valencia kits this summer. The new Valencia 16-17 home and away shirts prominently feature orange trim in a move that is sure to please the fans of Los Che.
Adidas became Valencia kit supplier in 2014, signing an initial five-year contract. Although this deal won't run out until the end of the 2018-19 season, it was recently reported that the club has an option to cancel it preliminary and that Under Armour would be in pole position to become Valencia's shirt sponsor from 2017-18.
After this seasons's Valencia jersey brought a very low-key design in only black and white, the new Valencia 16-17 home kit prominently features orange detailing to complement the traditionally white base.
Adidas utilizes a very bold color called "Solar Orange" for crew-neck collar, as well as the lateral Adidas stripes and the sleeve cuffs. Both the collar and the sleeve cuffs of the new Valencia 2016-17 shirt also feature black trim, resulting in a very balanced and clean look overall.
Black shorts and white socks, both with accents in orange, complete the Valencia 2016-2017 home kit.
Not only is orange used as secondary color on the new home shirt, it also features prominently on the predominantly black Valencia away jersey, for example in the form of piping on the inside of the neck, the sleeve cuffs and the laterally positioned Adidas stripes.
Additionally, the new Valencia 16-17 away shirt boasts subtle striping on the front and a traditional henley collar.
The shorts of the Valencia 2016-17 away kit are orange and the socks are black.
