Arsenal have revealed their new 2012/13 home kit today ( May 7, 2012) to add to the other Premier League kit releases from Norwich and Chelsea ( home) and Swansea and Newcastle United ( away). The new Arsenal 2012/13 kit sees Nike introduce a dramatic hooped sleeve design that has clearly split the fans’ opinion of the strip, with some liking the design and others rejecting it outright.

Arsenal’s new home strip for 2012/2013 is inspired by a retro look 1930’s design and winger Theo Walcott has said that it is a tribute to the Britishness of the club, with Nike having one eye on the 2012 London Olympics while designing the top.

Arsenal stars are here seen modelling the new kit in the pics below.

    Sack the idiot who thought blue and red on the kit’s sleeves would look good

    those sleeves look really tacky

  5. Naomi May 7, 2012 11:30 am

    Waste of money

    I’ll stick to my current kit thank you

  6. Luke May 7, 2012 11:33 am

    Our kit’s bad but I wonder what manure will say when their tartan shirts come out

  7. emmanauel May 7, 2012 11:48 am

    the shirt is very bad

  8. dan May 7, 2012 11:56 am

    I don’t understand the origins or point of the blue. The nike guys clearly lacking imagination as it looks like the 10/11 kit so they must’ve figured to throw in something ‘innovative.’ Too bad it looks crap.

  9. Steve May 7, 2012 1:17 pm

    wtf? those stripes are ridiculos

  10. Mkewa burton May 7, 2012 1:54 pm

    Not so good looking kits

  11. shahtsuki May 7, 2012 3:57 pm

    Dude..this still good compared to Man U that look like shit..!!

    Man U is the Shit one…haha

  12. Derrick May 7, 2012 5:50 pm

    Bad design

  13. mystery May 7, 2012 7:03 pm

    kinda lyk d new kit,atleast its sumtng,even if there’s no trophy!

  14. mystery May 7, 2012 7:04 pm

    Trophyless KIT!!!

  15. Jordan May 7, 2012 8:41 pm

    Funny how you can’t even check out a shirt design without it being a ‘Lets slag Man United off’ contest. Although, I agree this shirt beats our new shirt easily but then again I think Newcastles Yellow Away shirt a few seasons ago is better then out shirts next season.

  16. Pratik May 8, 2012 4:11 am

    Nike has dedicated this kit to Robin van Persie’s heroics this season… Probably thats why they’ve put the “DUCTH” flag on the sleeves… 😛

  17. Pat May 8, 2012 4:31 am

    BELLENDS!!!!!!! ^^^^^^^

  18. Nathan May 8, 2012 7:38 am

    I used to hate it, especially when I saw those leaked photos that most thought were fake, but I’ve come round and I rather like It, very patriotic, and very reminiscent of the blue hooped socks of the Chapman years

  19. Kevin May 8, 2012 8:08 am

    Hehe they luk lyk 4 kenya. Nt geuwd at all bt 4 kenya they r the bext compared 2 this.

  20. willellis May 8, 2012 9:41 am

    am i the only one who thinks this looks good? i think its sick!! it’s definatly a change from what were used to but i think they’ve pulled it off :) i’ll definatly be buying one :) great work arsenal!

  21. Jamie May 8, 2012 12:32 pm

    You people don’t have a clue do you this is just like the 1992-1994 kit if your a REAL arsenal fan
    you would know what that is …..

  22. Deeniale May 8, 2012 2:22 pm

    Nike getting bold with their designs, look at Man Utd’s lady gaga jersey, lol.

    It is not always a hit.

    This Arsenal jersey look weird at first, but on further look, it does grow in one and looks better and better.

  23. gooneraw May 8, 2012 4:17 pm

    I’m the only one that likes it then?
    Looks a lot better when worn on flesh arsenal(dot)com/news/news-archive/arsenal-reveal-home-kit-for-2012/13-season

  24. cj May 8, 2012 5:01 pm

    It is totally shitty

  25. nick May 9, 2012 9:08 am

    Why Arsenal uses France flag on its sleeves: Red, White, and Blue?

  26. Tbam May 9, 2012 3:30 pm

    Clearly people are forgetting about the other shirts we have had that featured blue in them…

    Its just a kit people. Get over it. Besides, Chapman introduced blue hoops into the socks in the 30’s.

    We didnt even have white sleeves until then. Clubs are always evolving. Would you not go to the Emirates because it’s a new stadium?

  27. Micheal May 9, 2012 5:04 pm

    is there any need to keep the same kit and add blue and red stripes. even i could produce a better kit.

  28. Aneesh May 9, 2012 7:12 pm

    No talks ll help to change the home kit . So accept the new kit and sit calm and love arsenal . Come on gunners..

  29. Olan May 9, 2012 8:49 pm

    I love it, its beautiful but let pray to win trophy with the jersey

  30. Olan May 9, 2012 8:51 pm

    I love it, beautiful

  31. ceino May 9, 2012 10:06 pm

    I don’t particulary like it, who ever said the stripes are the French flag is a twat. The stripes represent fin flash from an RAF plane, I believe. The RAF museum London held an exhibition “Arsenal and the RAF”


    At least that may go some way to explain ‘patriotic’ inspirations and perhaps appeal to the tourists that will be attending the Olympics.

  32. Alberto May 9, 2012 11:00 pm

    It’s AWESOME stop the hate

  33. '> May 9, 2012 11:28 pm

    How many of you are gooner fans? Thats a nice kit and the stripes are black surely like the kits from the late 80s early 90s.

  34. Sachhyam May 10, 2012 7:18 am

    Dont know how but i love the kit. Pure Classic !

  35. Aby May 10, 2012 9:08 am

    I think zis is wenger’s shirt not arsenals feckin french.

  36. grunt May 10, 2012 11:30 am

    OMG i saw an image of some arsenal kits and i thought that was an awesome look if it was true but then they produce this shithole. guess the images were fake….dammit

  37. usman bomai May 10, 2012 8:49 pm

    mehn dis dose not look good @all shitttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt

  38. Anon May 11, 2012 3:40 am

    Arsenal is a french team? looks like wearing the french flags to me! wahahaha

  39. Rye May 11, 2012 8:31 am

    everyone looks like captain!!hahaha

  40. Marc Wood May 11, 2012 5:17 pm

    check out historicalkits dot co dot uk slash Arsenal slash Arsenal dot htm
    and you will see that BLUE HOOPS 91930 until 1960) , and the colur BLUE is small doses has been mixed in before with our RED AND WHITE.
    And i agree with ceino completely, the 3 colour blue white red are BRITISH Royal Air Force colours, not the French flag.
    Personally i think this is kit is GREAT.
    Many people are afraid of change.
    Herbert Chapman introduced the WHITE SLEEVES in 1933… and well, the rest is history. SOmetimes a small change is good.

  41. Todd May 11, 2012 8:51 pm

    I don’t think the kit looks hat bad! Just don’t understand the blue on it….
    Plus it is better than the Man U one!

  42. Dave May 12, 2012 2:56 am


  43. Mahammed May 12, 2012 1:33 pm

    No one would be crying when we see van persie lift the premier league, champions league, FA cup and carling cup wearing the exact same kit NEXT SEASON. bunch of babies. arsenal isnt about the kit, its about the football.

  44. Dennis May 12, 2012 7:50 pm

    Ok keep the sleeves but ditch the blue collar

  45. amir May 13, 2012 7:16 pm

    our 1996 kit looked better than this shit

  46. warren yeo May 14, 2012 2:46 pm

    kit is nasty dont get it, we need red home and yellow away like the old :)

  47. Me May 15, 2012 5:26 am

    I don’t like this, it looks so odd. Well I’ve got no choice but to buy it.
    Thanks Arsenal but not Nike.

  48. Ben copper May 15, 2012 2:11 pm

    What is the point in having the leaves on last seasons shirt an taking it of this season???? Good top but still it not right. I nearly got it tattooed on my leg last week. It’s a good job I didn’t

  49. GoonerG May 15, 2012 10:12 pm

    Ben Copper – this year’s badge is a one off to reflect the 125th anniversary (the leaves represent the first meeting at the Royal Oak pub).
    The club moves back to the ‘normal’ badge next season.

  50. reece May 16, 2012 7:33 pm

    It look shit in the beginning. But when u look at it it look great I like everthing about it and the people with the french flag hahaha its the coloures of the london airforce. The onley thing I would change is ill change the badge back to the 125th anniversary badge

  51. horis May 17, 2012 6:13 pm

    why have they changed there badge

  52. lewis May 18, 2012 2:49 am

    i get the blue and why its there, but i just hate the design, especially the blue collar, but i hope it will grow on me

  53. CarlosFFC May 18, 2012 11:22 am

    I don’t understand why everyone is complaining about this shirt :S
    It’s far from terrible, even more so when compared to United’s shirts this year.

    As for the people not understanding why the blue; the team originally wore royal blue (the proper, traditional royal blue) shorts back in 1889 when you were known as Royal Arsenal.
    The first introduction of royal blue on your shirts seems to be in 1982.

    For me, Nike putting the royal blue back on the shirt is a nice touch.

    I just can’t wait to see what Kappa are planning with my teams away kit this year 😀

  54. patrick May 18, 2012 2:52 pm

    its not that bad come people

  55. Abdirahman May 18, 2012 6:24 pm

    i like it !!

  56. Will May 19, 2012 12:26 am

    It’s coz arsene is French so cut it a bit of slack. Don’t think it looks too bad

  57. Adrian Tan May 19, 2012 7:34 pm

    This jersey looks weird, moreover what is with the blue white and red sleeve? What is Wenger even thinking? Just because Wenger wants to keep ONE Holland player and make the entire team to wear Holland sleeves. Seriously, would does other player think? Wenger, that is not wise at all and not fair for other Arsanal players.

  58. Adrian Tan May 19, 2012 7:35 pm

    this jersey lookalike my high school t-shirt. lmao

  59. akshay May 21, 2012 5:36 pm

    u people are soo dumb call urself arsenal fans the sleeve is like that becuz its the netherlands flag and he done that becuz he wants van perise to stay

  60. anthony May 22, 2012 6:49 pm

    Good to see arsenal supporting the rangers crisis.

  61. Mr.smartypants May 24, 2012 6:03 pm

    I thought the discussion is about the arsenal kit…why are people discussing man utd here…..its a bad mentality.

  62. lilli May 27, 2012 8:01 am

    its at least better than the man u kit

  63. VICTOR B CHOLLOM June 2, 2012 9:40 am

    I love this new home kit, i have placed an order with my Pet name on it, and i cant wait for the start of the season,this jersey will look great on Van Persie,Song,Podoski,M`villa pls,with this jersey we have to WIN a trophy.

  64. Didi June 5, 2012 2:27 pm

    I totally love the home kit,it actually looks stylish..The dash of Navy blue is cool,i love the stripes and i think RVP looks amazing in his jersey.Just placed an order for mine,cant wait.. Looking forward to winning trophies with Arsenal.

  65. goonero June 8, 2012 10:12 pm

    Adrian Tan May 19, 2012 7:34 pm

    what on earth gave you the impression that Arsene Wenger is in charge of kit design?! Just when i thought the blame wenger game couldn’t get any more illogical…

  66. zamu June 9, 2012 11:03 am

    big shit, another trophless season

  67. Elliot June 10, 2012 4:56 am

    All the comments are about how crap this kit is and your all right its total shit, just keep it simple like 2006 or so and dont make the players look like homo salors with their sleeve’s

  68. Vishnu June 11, 2012 9:53 am

    99% of the idiots commenting here are have no idea what they are talking about..just because someone else has commented negative, all are doing the same thing……..this looks very good in my opinion…

  69. Benedict Tawiah June 15, 2012 2:41 pm

    We in ghana can’t wait to purchase the new jursey. Its nice & we congratulate nike for the wonderful design.

  70. ikmal June 20, 2012 10:40 am

    As long as it is Arsenal, everything is perfect to me 😀

  71. Lee Gerald June 22, 2012 4:53 am

    The more I look at it, the more I am loving it. This is actually a nice kit. 2010/2011 is beautiful. 2011/2012 is classic looking. Except the crest as mine peel off after about ten washes. Anyone experienced that too? :-( Luckily Arsenal and Nike chose to have the crest stitched on this year..:-)

  72. karan June 22, 2012 7:16 am

    Not blue only red!.Not expected from nike

  73. Lee Gerald June 22, 2012 9:01 am

    I believe the blue-white-red symbolised the flag of France (nationality of our Great Mr Arsene Wenger). I believe Nike want the players to remember who they are playing for and to wear their heart on sleeve and to express themselves openly on the field. Go out and show those who despise us!!

  74. karan June 23, 2012 10:55 am

    This kit should bring some new luck to the club. And win all the trophies in ENGLAND. Good luck gunners!.

  75. layefa June 25, 2012 2:13 pm

    Umm….the design could be better,is that really the best nike came up with?

  76. john nbi June 25, 2012 5:02 pm

    dont like this kit why the blue. ilike the black mix .in total who ever designed it lacked ideas.

  77. evason meio jr June 27, 2012 1:41 pm

  81. Lauben July 12, 2012 3:00 pm

    Arsenal is now changing the kit in order to take the trophies after it has failed to do so for almost seven years that is shit.I request all arsenal ferns to come and join MANU UNITED, TROPHY WINNERS.

  82. Deneth July 12, 2012 3:20 pm

    That is a c**se from nike for Arsenal’s in coming season 2012/2013.It might even be relegated,shit me jam shifting to mancity.
