One glaring omission from our Great Tracksuits series thus far is Hummel, the Danish sportswear manufacturer (and not the German World War II tank of the same name).
In 1986, the Norwegian national team bought into the Hummel legend with this rather striking tracksuit in bright red and Persil white. As you can see from former Tottenham goalkeeper Erik Thorstvedt and his pals, the familiar chevrons are there on the white upper section while the rest of the tracksuit is predominantly red. Apart from a zip, a squad number and the Hummel logo, there's not much more to say, but the overall effect is smart and bright - even if there is a hint of the Formula 1 pit crew about the ensemble.
All in all, Hummel were and remain a great manufacturer of footballwear and if we've got anything to do with it, they'll be appearing on The Football Attic a lot more often in future. Meantime, if Great Tracksuits are your thing, why not check out all the others in our series?
