Balls’ Classic Football Kits: Barcelona Away 95-97

Balls’ Classic Football Kits: Barcelona Away 95-97
By Mikey Traynor

Welcome to Balls’ Classic Football Kits, a weekly look at some of the most beautiful retro football shirts ever to grace the game.

Football hipsters rejoice.

This week we have decided to highlight Barcelona's superb effort from the mid-90s, as worn on away fixtures by legends such as Ronaldo, Fernando Couto, Luis Figo, Luis Enrique, and Pep Guardiola to name but a few.

Made infinitely better by the lack of a sponsor, the gorgeous teal colour is not something you would immediately associate with Barca, but this one just worked.

Made by Kappa before they started the skin-tight jerseys, this shirt embodies the bizarre design choice of the '90s and is everything good about football shirts of the time.

Undoubtedly this jersey will be best remembered for the goals that Ronaldo banged in while wearing it. This jersey represents the Brazlian striker's short but successful stint at the Catalan club, and they even wore it when they won the UEFA Cup Winners Cup against PSG in 1997:
