Kappa Launch Botafogo 2019/20 Kits

The football shirt fire keeps coming from Kappa as the brand release another stunning set of designs for one of their partnered clubs. We've seen what Kappa have done in Europe but now they're flexing in South America with the launch of the Botafogo 2019/20 replica collection.

The kits will be worn in throughout the remainder of the 2019 Brasileirao season and for the beginning of 2020, right up until May 2020 and are exquisitely minimal to perfectly complement that deliciously retro club crest. Revealing the kits with the help of local influential talent, the club called upon MC G15, Rapper SOS, UFC fighter Thiago Marietta, and DJ Pelé, who all feature in the reveal video.


The kits are typical of Kappa's streetwear style and blend effortlessly into lifestyle environments thanks to that dynamic club branding. The home shirt is the black and white striped design, while the away kit is all white with a smart 'Botafogo' graphic running throughout to keep the design modernised and interesting. Both the home and away shirts feature that beautiful retro Kappa motif running down the sides for an envious look.

This ain't the first time we've been singing Kappa's praises this season. The Italian brand have been tearing up with the AS Monaco and Aston Villa 2019/20 shirts amongst others and have consolidated their place in the replica market while providing a stylised alternative to the likes of adidas, Nike and PUMA, and in turn pushing them to work harder to be more bespoke and more relevant.

That turquoise goalkeeper shirt is a serious contender too. All of the Kappa Botafogo shirts would easily gatecrash our top 30 replica shirts of the 2019/20 season list if they were released a couple of months earlier. The Rio de Janeiro based club will be switching into the new strips from this week onwards. Think we've just found ourselves a new favourite Brazilian outfit.
