Netherlands Away 2014 4

Nike Football/Soccer has unveiled the 2014 Away Kit The Netherlands will be wearing at the World Cup with the help of Joël Veltman, Davy Klaassen and Jean-Paul Boëtius at Westergasfabriek in Amsterdam. The new jersey features a unique and very dope design influenced by Dutch culture.

The shirt has:

“… an isometric grid pattern of interlocking chevrons that start at the top as bright blue and gradually become darker, ending as imperial purple at the hem.

The pattern has a glow and depth, representing the prominence of water in Dutch life and the country’s landscape.

The blue in the pattern signifies the Dutch royal family and the color of the cross that appears in their official flag.”

This one, paired with the home kit, assures that The Netherlands will undoubtedly be one of the best national squads at the World Cup. See more pics below. Continue Reading

125th Anniversary Dutch Home Kit Strootman

Not only is 2014 the year we get another edition of the FIFA World Cup, but it also marks the 125th anniversary of the founding of The Netherlands’ soccer federation. The new design not only features a new look for the shirt itself, but it also comes with a whole new crest to represent the KNBV (Royal Dutch Football Association). The crest for the 2014 kit is a white lion that’s meant to symbolize a new era in Dutch soccer and, according to the Nike release, also represents “the team’s core values of simplicity, honor and unity.”

The V-neck collar is a classic look for a soccer jersey and, in overall terms, it is a beautiful shirt fit for one of the best teams in the sport. I honestly would love to add this one to my collection.
