The new 2013 England Away Kit, by Nike

After the launch of England’s first Nike home kit last week, the American sportswear company has now unveiled the 2013 England away kit this Sunday.

The new England away kit is reflective of the team’s history, pride and style. The kit sees the return of the red away colour – England first wore red in 1951 and they were also donning red shirts when they won the 1966 World Cup at Wembley.

The new away shirt is a modern classic with an entirely red body reflecting the pride and passion of England’s loyal fans. The shirt also speaks to England’s uniquely understated style heritage with a tailored collar. The placket has two buttons; the bottom one is red, while the top one is white with red thread to replicate the St George’s cross.

Celebrating the Football Association’s 150th anniversary, the Three Lions crest is rendered in gold on the away shirt. A gold star above to celebrate the World Cup win and a golden ribbon beneath proudly reads “150 years” and the dates 1863-2013.

The away shorts are white with another gold crest on the front, while the socks are red with a thin white band at the top.

The England away kit is available for pre-order from store.nike.com.
