[U.S. SOCCER] U.S. Soccer unveiled the new men’s and women’s national team home uniform designed by Nike for 2014. What is most noticeable is the classic white polo shirt collar with red trim.

JERSEY. The new jersey incorporates a classic white with gray horizontal pinstripes across the body and sleeves. Inside the back of the neck is a blue pennant tab with the 13 stars from the original American flag.

On the back, the top features a specially designed font for the USA names and numbers – a modern and angular style that is influenced by other U.S. sports teams. The jersey numbers also include a small U.S. Soccer crest at the bottom.



SHORTS. The shorts are white with a red stripe on each side. The center back of the Nike Pro baselayer shorts feature  laser vents to aid in cooling and moisture management.

SOCKS. The  socks are also white with strategically cushioned zones to provide comfort and protection. Flex grooves were added to the ankle and the top of the foot in these Nike Elite Match Fit socks.

The new U.S. uniforms feature fabric made from recycled plastic bottles: 100 percent recycled polyester in the shorts, 96 percent recycled polyester in the shirt and 78 percent in the socks.

    WOW!!! It must have taken some major designing efforts, sleepless nights and lots of money to come up with something so original.

    This will look great for a hot minute, before rolling around in the grass/turf!

    So the colors for the national teams are red, white and gray. And I can't see the gray pinstripes in the picture. The US blue is on a tab inside the shirt. Are you kidding me? Our colors should be red, white and blue with Stars and Stripes incorporated into the design. How hard would that be? A lot of other countries have very distinctive uniforms based on their national flags and colors. Why aren't we striving for something distinctive that can be immediately recognized from a distance?
