Nike Soccer Unveils 2014 U.S. National Team Away Kit

The U.S. Men’s National Soccer Team will compete in Brasil this year in a bold and deeply patriotic new away kit.

The new away jersey has a modern crew-neck collar and consists of three bands representing the colors of the American flag. The base color of the jersey and the cuff of the sleeves feature a prominent red. The upper torso and top sleeves include a bold blue tone, and a white chest band extends over the middle of both sleeves.

Inside the back of the neck is a pennant tab featuring thirteen red and white stripes to represent the original thirteen colonies that declared independence and formed the first states.

“The USA has a profound and passionate pride in their nation,” said Martin Lotti, Global Creative Director for Nike Soccer. “We wanted to create a design that reflects this in a daring and colorful fashion to give them an even more imposing appearance on the pitch.”

The back of the jersey features a unique and specially designed name and number font, which is modern, angular, and directly influenced by U.S. sport teams. Each number on the back of the jersey also houses a small U.S. Soccer crest at the bottom.

“I like the patriotic design and color scheme and I think it will look great on the pitch,” said U.S. Men’s National Team Captain Clint Dempsey. “Hopefully they will serve us well as we head into a competitive group.”

The red shorts are slimmer and more tailored to the body, with a cut specifically designed to aid movement and comfort. The center back of the shorts feature Nike’s signature laser vents to aid in cooling and allow for moisture management.

The new away socks are also red, so the color extends impressively from the feet, through the shorts and all the way to the white chest band on the jersey.

“The new kits fit really well, look great and most importantly, are really comfortable, especially when we are running all over the field for 90 minutes in all sorts of different weather,” said U.S. Women’s National Team striker Sydney Leroux. “All of us on the team are environmentally conscious so the fact that it is sustainably designed using recycled Dri-FIT polyester is also a big plus.”

In a portrait series lead by Clint Dempsey and Sydney Leroux, a group of notable athletes and fans were photographed wearing the new kit to show their support for the team. Included are football players Andrew Luck and Ndamukong Suh; skateboarders Eric Koston and Sean Malto; track and field gold medalist Allyson Felix; former U.S. National Team member Alexi Lalas; music producer Diplo; musicians HAIM; and one of Brooklyn’s finest filmmakers Spike Lee.

The new U.S. National Team Away Kit is available at Nike stores and on nike.com beginning April 1.
