By now I'm sure you are aware the Houston Dynamo officially unveiled their new third kit for the 2012 season. Originally planned to be unveiled a bit later in the year against FC Dallas, the Dynamo have pushed up that date and will wear the new darker orange and pinstriped jersey on May 26th when they face the LA Galaxy.
The third jersey has been a very hot topic for several months now. Many fans were calling for a space city blue kit, others wanted black, even purple was my original guess on the color (due to our relationship with sponsor Greenstar). A couple weeks ago the jersey went viral on Twitter after they were spotted at Soccer-4-All. They told me Adidas accidentally shipped some early and did not know the jersey release was further down the road.
Fans have been more than "mixed" about the color. I for one, know this jersey will be worn by the Dynamo and I'm a fan of anything that has our logo on it. I will say some of the original pictures (especially the one on the Soccer-4-All website) made it look red, but it's clear now it's a darker shade of orange. I love the pinstripes and love that the shorts match. Nothing like orange on orange!
New stadium, new kit, and same grit on the field. What a great 2012 so far for the Dynamo organization and the fans. Fans can get a hold of the new kit when the Dynamo open the doors to the team store on May 3rd from 5-7pm. Read the full release from the team here.
