Rumored to have signed Mexico international Hector Herrera from LaLiga’s Atletico Madrid, Houston Dynamo has released its 2022/23 adidas away jersey. The MLS club’s new alternate shirt is inspired by the city of Houston’s bayous.
According to the club:
Houston is a city of many nicknames, perhaps none of which is more deserved than the Bayou City. Eleven different bayous run through Houston, and their impact on the city is a profound one.
The bayous, and the role they play in the city, served as the inspiration for the new Houston Dynamo FC alternate jersey, dubbed the Bayou City Kit. The intertwined nature of the bayous means that they help connect every Houstonian together, just as the Dynamo strive to do, and this jersey aims to reflect those relationships.
From their vital role in flood prevention to giving a home for Houston’s surprisingly diverse wildlife to serving as a source of fun and recreation for so many Houstonians, H-Town truly would not be the city it is without our bayou system. Everyone in Houston can likely identify their neighborhood by its proximity to the nearest bayou, and when it rains every eye in the city turns to the bayous to gauge the severity of a storm.
The kit builds upon the tribute to Houston’s bayous that began with the debut of the team’s new crest in 2020. The channels in the H-D monogram within the crest were inspired by Houston’s bayou system, while the six-sided design was inspired in part by Houston’s original city layout that included six wards.
