    The only way that they will drop prices is if people don't buy them. So you are part of the problem.

    To be fair last season a baby kit was £42, now it's £40.
    Last season the next two sizes up from that were £74 a kit, now it's £45.
    The next sizes up are more expensive but UA & Nike are very different, it's £6 more for the bigger youth shirt & £5 more for adult.
    Plus rather than with UA for example last season, the home and away shorts were almost identical and same colour, this season the home is also the away so it's saves money there if you're buying those bigger sizes and having to fork out for two kits. Plus £1 less in those kid sizes.

    Last season example - YXL home shirt £42, YXL home shorts £26, socks £12.
    YXL away shirt £42, YXL away shorts £26, socks £12.
    Total = £160
    This season example - XLB home shirt £48, XLB home/away shorts £25, socks £15
    XLB away shirt £48, socks £15
    Total = £151
    Expensive - yes but cheaper than Under Armour in recent years.

    UA was about quality which is very good, Nike is about brand name more. Spurs heard most fans calling for Nike and they got what they wished for, which is more aesthetically pleasing design & the biggest brand out there, what that also means is a slightly less quality material and slightly more expensive due to the name.

    Home kits have changed every season now for 15 years also. It's not really a new thing, it's just the thing.

    This is my local team in the CSL, GuiZhou HengFeng. That is why I will not be buying any Spurs kits this year.

    It's not available in Nike or other sport shops in Berlin, is what it is. Seriously, Chelsea, Man City, available... THFC Nike top? Nope.

    lol so the players have to wear an oversize match shirt so some guy can laze on his sofa more comfortably?

    why didn't you get a medium stadium as they are a looser cut to the player issue elite?

    You are right, why didn't they take my measurements before the designed the template. Really poor show by Nike.

    Well as it was a gift I didn't really choose. For what it's worth, I have a adizero Columbia kit and the fit and material is incredible, nicely fitted without being skin tight. I just personaly don't think his fits as well.

    There's no chance of them ever making it to the Nike store in Taiwan, although they do have the Chelsea one.

    I'll be in Toronto & NY this summer tho. Does anyone know if they have them there?

    I know the Nike store in Chicago got a ton of them so I'd assume the NY one would have them.

    The distribution in the US seems to be miles above the UA kit.


    Regarding the actual pics of it in game: that white seems very white. Love it.

    Interesting to see the Academy lads wear the "Stadium" replica shirt for games, rather than the "Elite" version - was the same in the Under Armour kits too

    I have always thought they make academy players wear oversized/ill fitting shirts to make them look undeveloped in the eyes of any rival club scouts watching on considering the approach most scouts take to only target the more physically developed youngsters.

    It looks a little like the Puma 'carrier bag' fit.
