Is this Tottenham’s best away kit of the 1990s?

Tottenham actually have a very tidy kit this season.

Sure, it’s off-the-peg Nike and costs a bomb, but the classy white-and-navy colour scheme along with the AIA sponsor looks pretty decent. Their away shirt isn’t bad either, an identical kit in navy with white detail and sponsor.

But between 1995 and 1997, things were very different at White Hart Lane. Not only were the club struggling in the Premier League, finishing 8th and 10th respectively, they had Alan Sugar as chairman and Gerry Francis as manager. They also had a sensational selection of kits that season.

Pony were the club’s kit manufacturers back then and Hewlett Packard’s name was emblazoned across the front. The home shirt was the classic 1990s fare for Spurs: white and navy.

The away kit was a departure from their usual. Feast your eyes on this:

Just look at that beauty. The navy and purple is a criminally underrated colour scheme, and combined with the white detailing on the 1995-97 jerseys, the shirt is nothing short of spectacular.

Worn by the likes of Teddy Sheringham, Ruel Fox, Chris Armstrong and a young Sol Campbell, the shirt is a largely forgotten one, due to how poor Spurs were during that time, but it’s a forgotten classic of the late 1990s.
