The Best 2009 MLS Jersey

Looking through the new adidas Major League Soccer jersey designs this year we have come to the conclusion that the soccer jerseys for this years teams are all well done. It seems not too long ago that when the league first started out the jerseys looked like a bunch of crayons threw up on a canvas and then a soccer jersey was created. The jerseys had ugly neon colors mixed with other neon colors and the patterns were jagged, a far cry from a good looking soccer jersey, just take a look below at the first collection of the inaugural Major League Soccer jerseys from 1996.

Now we are 14th season and the soccer uniforms that MLS has is a 1000% improvement from when the league first started. Like we said, we really do like the soccer jerseys from the teams this year, but the team that has the best overall home and away jersey has to go to the Houston Dynamo. First of all the orange and white combination goes extremely well together, they kept it nice and simple by using only two colors and each jersey has the color of the neckline coming from the collar and swaying throughout the body of the jersey. The Houston Dynamo home jersey gets special praise for it’s vibrant orange color and crisp look, if you look closely within the body of the jersey you’ll see a sublimation design that almost looks like sun rays coming from the jersey that keeps with their Forever Orange motto.

The Houston Dynamo dominated the Western Conference last season and they will be looking to build upon that this season to capture another MLS title. While we can’t guarantee that they will come out on top at the end of the season, we can say that the Houston Dynamo jersey should win all awards for the best looking MLS jersey for the 2009 season.

    BULLL CRAP! the inaugural jerseys were amazing! they were all done very well; especially the mutiny, clash, wizards, burn, and united. why do you think these jerseys are sought after so much. i personally own a 2 united jerseys from their inaugural season. every time you look on ebay you can see a mutiny jersey going for tons of money. its probably because the team went under but still, the jerseys from the first season are always in demand. i think if the companies brought the jerseys from the original year back and tried to sell them they could make plenty of money. the jerseys of that season might not have been classy and sophisticated but since when is soccer like tennis or cricket? everyone loves originality. the jerseys now are plain and simple and are converting their style to that of european teams: simple, plain colors, a small crest, and a sponsors logo. that’s garbage, we should have wild and adventurous colors on our jerseys. they should be make of quality material and have team pride of it. it should promote the heck out of the team and not their million dollar sponsor. houston’s new jerseys look nice, and i agree they are the best looking in the league but i think that’s because the companies are becoming more simple minded and not using their imagination for the kits. its disappointing.

      We don’t see it as you do. Besides the DC United and possibly the MetroStars jersey, we can’t find one that is worth owning from that era.
