Best kits in the J and K League

With the leagues starting back in Japan and South Korea this weekend, let's now have a look at five of the more interesting football shirts that will be on show in the new season.

This lovely shirt from New Balance will be the home shirt for K League 2 side Seoul E-Land. The cities much newer club founded only in 2014 will be hoping this shirt will help them look good as they look to improve on an 8th place finish last season.

Daniel Febles

The new Venezuela striker will be hoping to help E-Land up the table this season and challenge for a place in K League 1. 

V-Varen Nagasaki

Now check this shirt out from V-Varen Nagasaki in the J League 1, I do admit it is one you could love or hate but you have to agree it catches the eye. The Unicef at the back looks a bit out of place but it is always great to see clubs advertising charities. The J League newcomers will be hoping this shirt is worn by a side who are competitive this season in Japan's top league.

Benjamin Halloran

The Australian midfielder who signed from German side FC Heidenheim is one to look out for as he looks to show his worth to the team and also to the Australia head coach Bert van Marwijk in time for the World Cup. 

FC Pohang Steelers

All of the FC Pohang shirts are a thing of beauty in one way or another but this goalkeeper shirt will catch the eye that is for sure. The Korean side will be hoping this shirt helps them keep more clean sheets in the K League and improve on their 7th place finish from last season.

Hyeon-Mu Kang

While there is outfield players to look out for also in this kit this is the man to keep an eye on. The keeper who kept 5 clean sheets last season will be hoping to improve and help the side from a city famous for steel have a strong defence.

Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors FC

Jeonbuk will be excited about the new season and will be going for another J League title along with winning the Champions League after a season out due to suspension. While it looks like the Koreans will be good on the pitch in their playing style they will look good in their new home kit from Hummel also. The tagline 'The Fifth Glory' is to celebrate the sides 5th league title and will be the first time the clubs home shirt is this shade of dark green.
