US Soccer has finally revealed what fans have been speculating over for weeks via leaked images of the new national team kit. Vice president of Nike football apparel Scott Munson dropped the details on Sports Illustrated and you can see nice close-up details from Nike here.

The new kit goes with the federation's new crest, and will continue to be shared by both the WNT and the MNT as part of USSF's stated policy of "one nation one team," with the women also featuring their three stars. The teams will have a white home kit and a black away kit that still incorporates some of the colors of the flag, as opposed to the black-white-and-volt seen during the 2015 Women's World Cup.

"We Can, We Will, We Are, One Nation, One Team," is written on the inside of the jersey behind the crest.

Fans have already taken apart the new kits for being ugly, although bare bones uniforms minus crests, names, and numbers usually tend to look worse than the finished product on the players themselves.

The kit redesign also includes a new goalkeeper look, which you can see on Tim Howard below.

Other countries are also using a variation of this kit, including England, Portugal, and France.

What do you think - is this a clean, fresh look, or the rejects from the bottom of a gym teacher's emergency shirt bag in the 90s?
