As you can see Nike have hit a blend with club tradition and the modern game yet again. Right off the back you get the classic white home kit along with the traditional navy away strip. But something that’ll keep Spurs’ fans connected to White Hart Lane in their season away is the new crest. Reminiscent of the club’s league and F.A. Cup double of the 1960-61 season which was secured at Wembley the famous cockerel is now surrounded by a shield, fans will hope this reminder of the club’s success will drive the players on to create some more memories.
