Nike unveils new Paris Saint-Germain away kit for 2013-14
French Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain will play in a new predominantly white away kit that features modern colour-blocking of red, white and blue to celebrate the side’s famous club colours.Young PSG fan Karim, winner of the #ICICESTPARIS contest, travelled to Sweden with Nike and the club on their pre-season tour to help unveil the new away kit.
The shirt has a tri-colour design — blue at the top, white in the middle and red at the bottom — giving it a youthful and passionate appearance that reflects club’s attachment to Paris.
The colour-blocking evolved from the distinctive vertical stripes that have traditionally appeared on the home shirt, with each colour representing a different club value: blue for grandeur, red to convey passion and white for respect.
Jersey details include a blue ribbed V-neck collar that blends into the top of the shirt, and a contrasting ribbed blue cuff on the sleeves.
The new away shorts are white with a thin blue stripe along each side, and the socks are white with a blue-and-red band at the top, and the more traditional blue-and red-stripe on the back to give players greater visual acuity on the pitch.
The kit showcases Nike’s belief in style, craft and strong aesthetics, while aiding the performance of players with key technological features.
The new kit also showcases Nike’s commitment to provide players with the latest performance innovation and reduced impact on the environment through recycled fabric, lighter and cooler with Nike Dri-Fit and the better fit of the jersey’s.
