Nike Debuts Englands New Home & Away Kits

nike-debuts-englands-new-home-and-away-kits-for-2014-1

Every  summer when we are waiting for the new football season to start enjoyment is to be had in the releases of all teams new kits…(apart from the year my own team brought a shitty red checked one out!) and the World Cup kits are the same. Nike has just unveiled England‘s new home and away kits ahead of the team’s campaign at this year’s World Cup in Brazil. The new kits pack the latest in technical innovations from Nike while sticking to an aesthetic inspired by classic England kits of the past and St. George’s cross. The all-white home kits are a direct reference to the ones worn by England in the 1970 World Cup in Mexico and feature an engineered pinstripe in the fabric, white satin tape on the shoulders and a subtle metallic weave on the Three Lions crest. The away kit plays up the national symbols of England and features a subtle, tonal pinstripe design with a graphic interpretation of St. George’s cross on the front that can only be seen when viewing the jersey from a distance. The away kit also features a unique treatment that makes it come to life under UV light. Look for the new kits on the backs of the England players when the team takes to pitch in Brazil.
