Houston Dynamo: Jersey Week 2013
The Houston Dynamo were the first out of the gate with an official release for MLS Jersey Week 2013, and their offering is a step back from the 2011 design.
The 2011 home kit for the Dynamo was a stunner, with a patterned fabric much like the center of a sunflower. This year it reverts to a simple matte orange which by comparison is nothing short of boring. The jersey also loses the collar of the last edition, although the team explains that was a comfort consideration for players in the Texas heat.
There are a few nice new touches. I like the Texas flag emblem at the bottom and the diagonal white armbands, but the Houston Dynamo had something special going on with their kits the last few years, and this cycle they’ve turned to just plain blah.
