There isn’t a cleaner shirt in football than the Tottenham Hotspur home shirt. For many, the fact that Spurs will usually rock with a plain white shirt is a negative thing, but for football shirt purists there is a pleasing consistency to the lillywhite kit. You can also count on Tottenham to provide a classy away shirt, with their typical colours of blues, yellows and purples complementing the white homes well.
Most popular Spurs football shirts
A classic Spurs design with a classic Spurs player is a great thing but the question is, if you’re going to get a nameset for a Tottenham player on the back of your shirt, which one should you get? Here’s how other fans and collectors have chosen.
1. Jürgen Klinsmann
In what is a theme for each of our top 3 most popular Spurs namesets we begin with a cultured striker. Top of the pile is Jürgen Klinsmann with 10 sales. The German was only in London for a relatively short period of time, but he left a lasting impact. Indeed the shirts he wore during his Spurs days are memorable, not least because of Klinsmann’s solid goal return and the celebrations he made in said shirts.
The 1994 away is one such kit. With a brooding two-tone purple design this is as good as it gets from 90s kings Umbro. Klinsmann’s name and number in that wonderfully chunky style is the cherry on top.

2. David Ginola
Speaking of cultured strikers, no one fits the bill better than David Ginola. With flowing locks and a killer smile, Ginola charmed his way into the hearts of the watching footballing world (and the non-footballing world, for what it’s worth). Though not quite top of our list of the most popular Spurs namesets, he sits just 2 sales behind at 8.
One of Ginola’s more underrated garbs was the 1997 Tottenham Hotspur home shirt. The kit, made by the retro brand PONY, was quintessentially Spurs with a little bit of flair in the collar and cuffs and some tasteful details throughout. With designs like these it’s a shame we don’t see more on PONY in the modern game.

3. Teddy Sheringham
Rounding off our list with 7 sales is Edward Paul Sheringham; Teddy Sheringham to you and me. In two spells at White Hart Lane Sheringham became a key player for the North London side, playing alongside the likes of Klinsmann and Ginola in both leading and supporting roles at different times.
Though he wore several great Tottenham kits throughout the years, Sheringham’s first was arguably his best. As he stepped into the legendary #10 shirt, vacated by the great Gary Lineker, the comparisons were only made greater by the fact that Spurs kept the same shirt for Lineker’s last year and Sheringham’s first. It looked great both seasons, with the stunning Umbro numbers dazzling thanks to the double diamond details and chunky aesthetic.
