World Cup Kitman: North Korea
This summer’s hottest footy fashions
Team: North Korea
Prem personalisation: Seriously?
Verdict: You won’t be surprised to know that this kit has more politics behind it than any other World Cup shirt. The tale goes roughly like this: proud communist state has deal with China Hongxing during qualifying; contract expires; communist state holds out for big-money offer from kit manufacturer; enjoy a brief flirtation with Pirma; reject kit from Legea for being “too flashy” (it had a white stripe); sign €4m deal with Legea just last week.
If you find somewhere to buy this, then you’ve got better eyes than us.
