Swedish Champions AIK 1891 are back at it again, keeping the style standards set to superior, this time with their 2019 home shirt from Nike. You’ll once again find yourself asking: why can’t my club do this?

If there was an award for style in football, as a club, AIK would have already won it for 2019. Let’s be honest, they had it wrapped up in January. As a club, and with the backing of Nike, they continue to push the boundaries of football shirt design in the most elegant and appealing fashion. The new shirt for 2019 continues that trend, taking a black core with only the sponsor, branding and club crest popping in yellow on the front, while on the back, there’s the names and numbers along with a tidy neck tag that features the iconic 1891.


Okay, so Nike haven’t strayed far from the tried and tested model that’s been so successful in recent years for AIK for this latest home shirt. And no, this isn’t a special, limited edition master-piece that the Swedish outfit are fast becoming renowned for. But what it is is yet another example of how easy it is to make style a part of a club’s footballing identity.


In preparation for the 2019 Allsvenskan season, the combination of elegant black with accents of yellow continues after it proved to be so successful last year. Following the incredible popularity of the sublime special black and white edition releases that dropped earlier this year, selling out in minutes of their respective releases, it’s back to black and back to business once more, with Seb Larsson and co. preparing to defend their title. Job done in the simplest yet smartest of fashions.
