With the release of any kit comes an inevitable wave of reaction — and it's often more negative than it ends up a few days post-release, but that's sort of the name of the game when it comes to kit releases.
Real Salt Lake's kit release is no different.
But this one seems a little different. While 2014 brought the kit with the weird thing on the front (it was a crown, if you weren't aware), 2016 brings the no-cobalt Claret and Cobalt.
Not quite, of course — there's more to it than that. There's a distinct possibility that we'll see the highly vaunted cobalt shorts, the club said on Twitter — and that makes everything seem a little more rosy.
Not everyone was so negative, though.
I'll have to see the jersey up close and the material, but this is quite possibly my favorite home jersey #RSL has ever had.— #Javi4President (@papi4481) January 23, 2016
Digging the new @RealSaltLake jerseys. Simple and clean.— Nick Marx (@proletariatron) January 23, 2016
We'll have more photos tomorrow, when the club will certainly unveil the kits to the press in full. Keep your eyes peeled and all that.
