Nike Soccer Unveils 2017/18 Third Kits for FC Barcelona, Inter Milan, AS Roma, Chelsea, Tottenham

posted by Oscar September 12, 2017

The UEFA Champions League is back!! While a lot of us may take advantage of these dates to start queuing up the iconic theme song (UPDATE), Nike instead has opted for unleashing some new kits for some of the teams in the competition they suit up.

Spain’s FC Barcelona, Italy’s Inter Milan and AS Roma, and Chelsea and Tottenham from the UK, all have new kits announced this week. All the teams listed will be sporting camo designs on their latest jerseys.

Some of the colors have some interesting names and titles. Chelsea’s dark grey shirt has “modern electric blue” features and Spurs will be wearing a dark purple kit “rich yellow” highlights. The cool names for the new colors go to Italian squads, with Inter rocking a thunder blue third kit and AS Roma’s new jersey will be turning heads thanks to their dark velvet brown tone. The big stand-out? That goes to Barça, which is biting Roma’s signature maroon & orange colors for some odd and inexplicable reason… I mean, it looks cool, but still.

Check out images of the new kits below. Continue Reading

Netherlands 2015 Away Kit

The Netherlands and Nike have unveiled the new 2015 Away kit. The new shirt is white with their iconic oranje seen on the team crest and Nike swoosh. The Dutch are renowned for their speed and attacking style of play, moving the ball around the pitch quickly and surging forward at pace. The kit design represents the speed, movement and energy of the national team and combines innovative graphics with the iconic classic Dutch color palette of orange and white.

The shorts feature a printed gradient speed graphic consisting of orange and white light rays, which extends up the side panels of the shirt to represent their distinctive style of football. The innovative graphic on the shorts creates a strong sense of motion and a blur of color and light when the Dutch players are in action. The color in the graphic is most intense in the middle and the deep hue comes together near the waist on the shorts and on the hem of the shirt before gradually becoming lighter down the shorts and up to under the arms of the shirt.

The white base of the away shirt amplifies the famous saturated orange of the home shirt in the graphic, crest and numbers. The renowned Dutch graphic designer and typographer Wim Crouwel created a special font for the names and numbers on the kit. The bold and modern font also maintains a distinctly retro appearance, reminiscent of the style seen throughout football during the 1970s. The away shirt continues to feature the enlarged lion symbolizing Dutch football values of simplicity, honor and unity. A pennant tab inside the back of the neck displays the crown that sits upon the lion’s head on their association’s crest.

The shirt also boasts a new Nike-specific streamlined, clean and modern V–neck collar in white with an orange triangle insert.

The new away socks are white with a wide tonal stripe of chevrons on the calf at the back.

The new away kit will be available in stores and at nike.com starting March 21. See more shots below.

The green and red flashes draw inspiration from the Portuguese national flag and give the effect of having been painted on the black canvas of the away shirt. The two colors move in different directions, the red from the right and the green from the left.

Inside the back of the neck, a pennant tab features an armillary sphere, an ancient navigational device, to represent Portugal’s seafaring history. Celebrated Portuguese explorers used armillary spheres to travel around the globe. The tool has been a national symbol for more than 500 years and rests behind the Portuguese shield on the national flag.

Club America Clausura 2015 Third Kit

Club America Clausura 2015

Liga MX’s current Apertura 2014 season will just begin its play-offs stage but that hasn’t prevented league-leaders Club America to announce the third kit for the upcoming Clausura 2015 season.

The new jersey mirrors the current home shirt, but it’s lime-green instead of the cream-yellow it currently sports. I’m quite the fan of the shirt’s design, but the color choice is a bit off-putting. Full disclosure, I’m a die-hard América fan so my slight distaste could be due to that, but in a general sense I wasn’t all that enthused with the fluorescent colorway that many of Nike’s clubs rolled out a couple of months ago.

See a gallery of the new jersey in the gallery below. Order yours: http://bit.ly/1roOmu7 Continue Reading
