I’m not sure if you’ve been to Toyota Park before, but it’s a terrific place to watch a quality soccer team such as the Chicago Fire. Sure, the team has changed a lot, with the loss of the iconic Brian McBride and the midfield maestro Cuauhtemoc Blanco in recent times. However, the team has added some quality so it can still gun for an MLS Cup, such as the additions of Uruguayan duo Diego Cháves and Gastón Puerari. At any rate, the sad times when the squad have to travel away from Toyota Park sees the team in a classy away jersey
The jersey is all white, normally reserved for a home kit, but some teams reverse the trend here and wear white on the road, a trend I fully support. At any rate, it’s a very clean design which follows the principle, “less is more”. Best Buy takes the reigns for sponsorship again for the Fire and the lettering works well the Fire crest included on the chest piece. On the upper left side of the chest sits a stitched Adidas logo, as they manufacture all MLS kits for this year and years to come. Three stripes sit on the shoulders and look classy while dressing up the kit a bit more. To accent the sleeves, red coloring makes the stripes pop a bit more and again coincides with the team’s traditional color scheme of red and blue.
Through testing, I never had an issue with comfort and I don’t think I ever will. The jersey is highly breathable thanks to ClimaCool technology and is made of 100% polyester, so it’s easy to wash and maintain. It’ll also last a long time, and I’ve seen no signs of wear or tear thus far. Then again, I don’t expect it to ever fall apart since Adidas produces some serious quality with their replica gear across the board. Overall, it’s a professional jersey with modern elements and a clean feel. Stand out away from Toyota Park in style with this new Chicago Fire jersey.
