an-interactive-guide-of-the-world-cup-kits-through-the-ages | the style raconteur

So you had a look at this years World Cup kits (with France being the best in my eyes) now you can look at a lnfographic of the history of all 32 teams kits. Since the competition began in 1930, the 32 teams that make up this year’s World Cup field have donned a variety of kits to showcase regional colors, pride, and emblems pertaining to their respective countries. The Guardian recently put together a comprehensive and interactive showcase to illustrate just that. While the large graphic appears above, head here to see the more interactive and in-depth coverage pertaining to each team and their respective kits through the years – from Croatia’s signature checks to Holland’s orange colourway.

Burro No Alla Violenza T-shirts

BigBall300-760x1024

The first No Alla Violenza t-shirts were designed in late 1989, to promote a peaceful world cup for Italia 90. Initially some retailers rejected them on the grounds that the message was ‘too deep’, however they were soon stocked by shops like Duffer of St George, Bond, Geese, Psyche, Hip and Well Gosh and over the next few months everyone was wearing them.The anti hooigan message was taken up not only by serious football fans but all the cool club people as well, by the end of 1990 they were the must have item.  They have been re-released for Brazil and available here

Arsenal and Nike Celebrate 20 Years of Partnership

arsenal-and-nike-celebrate-20-years-of-partnership-1I’m not an Arsenal fan or particularly like them but I suppose they sold us RVP and this is kinda cool, so will give em a post. To celebrate Arsenal‘s FA Cup win and its 20-year partnership with the London club, Nike has created this special commemorative jersey. Starting with the current season’s jersey as a base, Nike has created a design that incorporates several jerseys from key moments in the club’s last two decades including the 03-04 “Invincibles” (I was at the game where that run ended…great day!)  jersey and the red currant jersey from the club’s farewell to its former home at Highbury. Created in a limited run, the individually numbered jerseys will be available at London’s Nike Phenomenal House at the Sorting Office from May 26 to 30.

Nike Football CTR 360 All-Black Boot

nike-football-ctr-360-all-black-boot-01-960x640

I had to post this up, call me old skool but football boots should be black and I can remember the last time a new boot released and it followed the OG tradition. Nike Football says goodbye to one of their most beloved boot silhouettes with an all-black, limited-edition version. The idea behind the blacked-out CTR 360 was to turn “the lights out on the CTR 360,” in addition to the all-black colorways used when athletes wear-test new models. The boot’s textured upper helps provide a layer of depth while a hint of reflectivity in the laces finishes things off. Look for the limited- edition, individually numbered boot to hit nike.com in the coming days.

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.
