Nike’s new USA Men’s National Team Soccer Away Jersey – Lightest Yet

Nike has just unveiled the lastest U.S.A. Men’s National Team soccer away jersey – hand delivered to our editors moments ago. The new Nike jersey is the lightest team kit jersey yet, coming at 23% lighter than the previous version four years ago. Holding true to their commitment to lower the environmental impact of their products, Nike uses more than 96% recycled polyester sourced from 13 plastic bottles to produce each and every jersey (kit shorts come in at a full 100% recycled polyester).

The look of the new US Men’s National Team away jersey for soccer is inspired by the look of varsity and lettermen’s jackets as worn by high school and collegiate athletes. The Nike jersey features a blue body and white sleeves with a crossover collar in red, white and blue. A tonal sash across the chest pulls inspiration from the USMNT jerseys of 1950, when the U.S. men’s team defeated England in the World Championship finals in Brazil. Comment away on that one or better yet take another look at the new England home kit. More on Nikesoccer.com
