Ordered two pairs of these from the Dudes in Blue shop as gifts not knowing the recipients had ordered them for themselves already. No returns since they’re custom, and they don’t fit me, so offering them here instead. I paid $59/pair, PM aid interested. One size 10 and one 10.5.

Got one pair for my kid, which is on the way. How do they look?

Didn't know they weren't returnable.

The Parley jersey is the nicest one we've ever had FYI
Is it just flat black with blue trim?

Are half of the teams in the league going to have the same jersey w/different trim (the other half having white)?

I'd say it's darker blue than navy blue with turquoise accents.

It's quite nice. Maybe my favorite non-sky blue NYCFC kit.

Very dark blue in the way that the first Parley jersey is cream and not white. The other ones are teal-ish with darker blue accents. Basically inverted.

I went to the Adidas store after work and the guy took my name and number and said he'd hold for me if they get more. Said that people were coming in and buying 10 jerseys.

Already 5 up on EBay.

One would think that if it’s a roll-out,limited run item, they’d cap the number a person could buy at one time.

Then again..... capitalism.....

There’s a resident shirt/screener on the Forums, can’t remember who, but if there’s a way to safely remove the heat press, they’d know.

Is it northernburbs ?
I don't own a screen/shirt shop, but I did work at Adidas 5/6 years ago and did the name/number flocking a lot. So, I have a minor amount of experience.
If you have a heat press it may make it slightly easier, but the main problem with removing any sponsorship/name/number is that the sticky "glue" material (stickum?) that holds the logo in place tends to leave a remnant on the shirt as well. Most of it will come off if when heated as it will melt, but the thing that makes it look terrible is the remaining stickum (for lack of a better term). It basically leaves a shadow of the previous symbol. I would presume heating it up over and over may help, but may also damage the shirt.

I did some research, and found this from a hockey site, similar question;
http://modsquadhockey.com/forums/topic/61977-removing-adhesiveresidue-from-jerseys/

They brought up this product, Goof Off, seems to work well based off people's reviews;

Is there a way to do that that actually looks good?
I've been working on a set of heat transfers with my partners at @freeassociation.world. I don't know if everybody will think they look good but we do ;)

Essentially after I posted the thread about sportswashing in the off-season, I was pleasantly surprised by how many people avoided buying merch with the logo, but also thought it was a relatively inconspicuous way to take a stance. So I started thinking about low effort, low cost ways to take a stance more conspicuously.

We ended up with a set of heat transfers which adhere to cotton, sport poly, whatever logos are made out of, nylon etc. It's applicable with a home iron for people who don't live near a soccer shop. And it should be pretty cheap (sub 15 dollars? Probably less at "mates' rates" ;)). Should be getting production samples in the next week or so and we will see from there about producing in bulk.

And yeah, we think they look good enough to get people over the barrier against demonstrating their values.

Is it applicable to just place it over the logo? Or does the original sponsor have to be removed first before placing the Free Association over it?

I only want it if your face is next to the free association wording.

Lol there's no Free Association branding. Felt hypocritical to cover up a brand with a brand.

Open to iron on portraiture tho.

Yeah we've tested it on top of logos on Nike shirts and Puma shirts, as well as screen printed paint
