Lots of Sheffield United fans have been reacting to these ‘concept kits’ that were released on social media yesterday.
Concept kits are a funny old thing, it gives people who are much better at graphic design and the like than I am a chance to be creative and come with some quite stunning designs for the club to use in the next campaign. Yet at the same time, when the real kit is usually released, it’s never quite as good as what the designers have come up with, leaving fans slightly depressed as a result.
And the Blades are the latest club to get the concept kit treatment with these two good looking kits off the back of the club’s #SUFCKitCup tournament that the club was running whilst trying to fill the void between football games.
Are you a fan of 'concept kits'?
And the design certainly got a lot of the fans talking, with many of them hoping that the club would listen to the designer and make sure these are indeed the designs for the club next campaign.
They look awesome

I commented that the winner should form the basis of next years kit. But I’d take both of those 👌🏻

As modern kits go they are fine i suppose…. but I won't ever be happy until we have striped sleeves and back with stripes narrow enough so that the 1st and 5th red stripe is in front of the seam down the sides, under the arms. I'm a traditional old Hector…
