Quality Kits of 2019: So Bad They’re Good Stevenage

We can understand how Stevenage’s away kit might not be to your taste.

When Macron released Boro’s Burger King sponsored shirts this summer, there was ridicule around how much tomato ketchup and mustard had been spilled over the navy blue away shirt.

Meanwhile, others thought the League Two club’s home shirts looked like burger-flipping aprons.

The 2019-20 home and away shirts were the first to feature a new simplified club badge for The Boro.

Stevenage aren’t known for wearing plain red and white stripes and always bring some invention to their shirts, regularly featuring radical diagonal designs.

The irregular width of stripes on this season’s home kit creates a diamond formation and fits that model of breaking Boro shirts from the stale and boring.

Macron’s away shirt brings to mind a vintage Aberdeen away shirt that has us thinking “what were Umbro smoking back in the 1990s?”

Stevenage are in the midst of a relegation battle at the foot of the Football League and whilst their fans may wish to forget this season; we’ll certainly remember this sauce stained away kit with affection.

They say that grace is seeing beauty in ugly things, and as football kit enthusiasts we like to search for the diamonds in the mud.

These shirts by Macron are so bad they are instant classics.
