Serie A kits 2017-18 - Part two

Ahead of the new season, Football Italia continues our look at the shirts which will be gracing Serie A in 2017-18.

Read part one here.

Crotone

Crotone haven’t actually released their new kit for the coming season, so we’ll have to wait until they take on Milan on Sunday night.

All we can say for sure is that it’ll be navy and red, and the badge will feature sharks and a flaming torch.

Kit rating: N/A [but bonus points for the sharks]

Fiorentina

Always a classic Serie A kit, this year’s Fiorentina shirt brings together all the colours of Florence.

The home shirt features white for Santo Spirito, red for Santa Maria Novella, green for San Giovanni and blue for Santa Croce; all adding detail to the iconic purple shirt.

Those colours represent the four quarters of Florence, with the away kit, third kit and goalkeeper kit continuing the theme.

The Le Coq Sportif kit contains bioceramics, which allegedly help to promote better recovery.

Kit rating: 9/10 - The Viola rarely disappoint with their kits, and this year’s is no exception.

Genoa

The front of this season’s Grifone shirt is rather minimalist in design, feating a button-up collar and the classic red and blue halves.

The inscription beneath the badge reminds the wearer that Genoa are the oldest club in Italy, and Lotto is perhaps the definitive brand for Serie A kits.

That said, this shirt is let down by the sponsor sticker on the back, which clashes awkwardly with the rest of the kit.

Kit rating: 7/10 - The Derby della Lanterna will be as sartorially pleasing as ever this season, but that sticker sees Genoa docked points.

Hellas Verona

City rivals Chievo always score highly with their bright yellow shirts, but Verona have a more conservative effort this season.

An understated navy blue with yellow cuffs and collars, this is a fine shirt for the Butei to sport on their return to Serie A, and certainly more attractive than previous striped efforts.

Kit rating: 6/10 - A solid but unspectacular effort.

Inter

Inter have had some lovely kits over the years, with 2015-16’s old-school effort a recent stunning example.

Last year’s shirt was criticised by some for being too dark, but the yellow branding was certainly eye-catching.

Unfortunately this season’s home top features an experimental approach to the famous Nerazzurro stripes, leading some fans to describe it as looking like a barcode.

Kit rating: 5/10 - It does kind of look like a barcode.

Coming tomorrow... Part three featuring Lazio, Juventus, Milan, Napoli and Roma
