[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.
