Nike Croatia Home Kit 2014_3

Nike Football’s (Nike Soccer for those of us stateside) rolling out more World Cup kits for the national teams that they will be equipping this year. Now it’s Croatia’s turn to show off their new shirts. The home jersey features their iconic red-and-white checkered pattern as seen in their flag on their nation’s coat of arms, with red sleeves and white trim. The shirt also pays homage to Croatia’s birth as a new football nation in 1990, sporting a look very similar to the one worn by the team when they debuted in a match against the US that year.

The away kit is bright blue with the Croatian red-and-white checks running along the shoulders down to the sleeves. Honestly, this might just be the best pair of of kits any team will be rocking at Brazil this summer.

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.
