New Jako Bayern Leverkusen Home Kit 2016-17 – Released
This is the new home kit for Leverkusen for the next season which comes in traditional colours but redical new design featuring hoop linnes and a gradient design just below the collar underneath club and Jako logos.
The major feature is the collar which comes in unique design. Jako produced the home kit with their trademark design pasted on the shoulder area and the text “Werkself” at the back of the collar area. All in all its a pretty sweet design but Leverkusen fans might have to get use to it before they embrace it.
Jako will be released two more kits (away and alternative) in the summer of 2016 and we will have official released pictures of both kits once they are released.
