Japan Goes Samurai Baby Blue On Us

A clean look for the likes of Takumi Minamino, Ritsu Dōan and Takefusa Kubo.

This year, the Japan Football Association (JFA) is celebrating its 100th anniversary. The football Japan’s provided has frequently captured the world’s imagination with its unique blend of technical beauty matched with an unconquerable spirit, and to commemorate the landmark, adidas has launched a jersey that’s inspired by the first Samurai Blue squad.

Unfortunately, only 2,021 shirts have been produced — making it an immediate collector’s item — but it’s easy to understand why when you see the packaging. Each jersey is being shipped in a traditional paulownia wooden box and includes 10 postcards that tell the history of the federation, as well as a chronological table.

Japan will wear the jerseys when 2022 World Cup qualifying resumes against Myanmar (May 28), Tajikistan (June 7) and Kyrgyzstan (June 15). Japan has won its first five second round matches by a combined scoreline of 27-0, mainly because of a 14-0 win over Mongolia.

You can try to pre-order one now from adidas Japan for something like $140.
