Click through the gallery above to see Argentina, Spain, Germany, Belgium, Colombia, Mexico, Russia and Japan's new kits.

Germany’s kit pays homage to their famous 1990 shirt, while Argentina's new design celebrates the Argentine Football Association's 125-year anniversary.

Spain's kit is a nod to the jersey worn at the 1994 World Cup, while Colombia’s kit takes inspiration from their 1990 version.

Mexico is another shirt inspired by the 1990 World Cup, and Russia's tops are a modern interpretation of the 1988 kit of the Soviet Union, which won gold at the Olympic Games.

Belgium's new kit, meanwhile, has a retro reference to their 1984 shirt, while Japan's strip takes inspiration from handcrafted Japanese Apparel Design.

"adidas has created so many products, innovations and looks through the decades which became true icons in the soccer world. We want to celebrate those icons in the world of today," Juergen Rank, senior design director at adidas, said.

"The fans feel the same way. They have the desire for authenticity and progression. They want something they immediately can identify with but at the same time it needs to contain the latest innovations and technologies of today.

"We bring the needs for the players and fans together, the needs for on pitch and off pitch, the needs for the stadium and the streets."
