Chris Coleman's men will wear their Adidas strip for the first time in their friendly against Finland, after the Welsh FA agreed the most lucrative deal in their history

Star duo Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey took centre stage alongside Sam Vokes for the unveiling of Wales' new kit.

The pair's status as two of Europe's most talented young players no doubt played an important role in helping the Welsh FA to secure their most lucrative ever deal after leaving Umbro for Adidas.

Bale has struck five goals in 10 games since moving to Real Madrid as part of a world-record deal during the summer, while Ramsey has already hit double figures for Premier League leaders Arsenal this campaign.

The kit, which is modelled on a "clean and classic design" and claims to be 40 per cent lighter than previous strips, will be worn by Chris Coleman's men for the first time in the friendly against Finland on November 16 in Cardiff and is available for purchase in the shops from November 14.

A statement on the FA of Wales website read: "The new kit reignites a long-standing relationship between Wales and adidas and pays homage to the iconic kits of the 1980s when Ian Rush, Mark Hughes, Dean Saunders and Neville Southall lined up in what became known as the 'Golden Generation of Welsh football'.

"Thirty years later, the Wales squad will again put on the red adidas jersey as Aaron Ramsey, Ashley Williams and Gareth Bale aim to become Wales's new golden generation through qualification for the Euro 2016 finals."

Welsh FA spokesman Ian Davis told the Daily Mail: "We are delighted that adidas remain a key member of the Welsh football family.

"I have no doubt that deal will excite the fans and will go on to be a long and lasting success for everyone."
