It’s Retro Week here at World Soccer Shop! We’re celebrating by featuring a handful of the throw-back kits available in our shop. Spanning the past century and the entire globe, these retro jerseys carry plenty of memories and an equal amount of old-school swag!


It’s no secret the Dutch national team is one of the best in the world. Wesley Sneijder, Arjen Robben, Robin Van Persie, the list goes on. But many fans of the Oranje would likely be happy trade any of those top-shelf players to have Johan Cruyff back on the pitch.
The Dutch forward and midfielder was dominant during the 70s for the Oranje, playing a massive role in the Total Football movement, and will always be known as one of the best attackers to play the game.

Putting it simply, if you’ve got a move named after you, you must been on another level. Maradona can vouch!
The long-sleeves, deep orange and large, emblematic lion are all iconic features of this jersey worn by one of the world’s best back in his day. Johan Cruyff was in a class all of his own.
