The home shorts are black with a printed stripe along each side, while the socks are white with a black block to give players greater visual acuity on the pitch.
The kit showcases Nike’s inherent belief in style, craft and strong aesthetics, while aiding the performance of players with key technological features.
The kit is made from recycled polyester – using up to 13 plastic water bottles to make one kit. The kits will be lighter in weight than Nike’s previous kits while boasting a stronger knit structure and significantly improved stretch.
The fabric is integrated with Nike Dri-FIT technology to draw sweat away from the body. Tiny laser-cut holes on both sides and across the entire back of the shirt ensure improved ventilation zones.
