Nike Release USA Home + Away Kits For 2018

USA Home and Away Kits 2018

We are in the midst of an important transitional phase for US soccer. The next wave of men’s players have been set the task of getting the federation back on track, performing at the highest level of international soccer. Nike has created two pretty slick new kits, home and away, to add some style to on-field performance. n reality, this would have been an absolutely perfect set of kits to showcase in Russia, sadly that of course won’t be the case. But we are going to see plenty of them through the summer as it will be worn by both the men’s and women’s team.

Among the core values that make the federation special is the motto, “One Nation, One Team.” Since 2014, this unifying phrase has defined the United States Soccer Federation; in its 2018 collection, the words are emblazoned on the inner neck of both the new home and away kits. There, the adage forms a distinct starting point for a set of uniforms that will see both the women’s and men’s teams through initial qualifying stages for the next major international tournaments.

All 2018 US national team kits can be found at soccer.com.

The stripes on the home kit shift from red to blue. The diagonal flow of the blue forms an abstract sash, a subtle ode to a regular design element in U.S. kits through the ages. This modern interpretation of the American Flag represents speed.

A stylized version of the American eagle, complete with 13 stars representing the original 13 colonies, forms the unique inner pride graphic on the 2018 USA home jersey.

A second statement is made through the custom name and number set for the federation. The typography is inspired by muscle car emblems and features crisp racing stripes and an inset star pattern.

Other key features of both kits include:

  • HIGH-TECH CREST – A new heat transfer crest is 64 percent lighter than previous crest applications, and Nike’s most-breathable ever.
  • OPTIMAL BREATHABILITY – The open-hole texture of the knit on the chest and back are precisely plotted against footballers’ heat and sweat maps for optimal breathability.
  • SLEEK SLEEVES – Engineered yarns on the sleeves contribute to the speed aesthetic of the kit.
  • INCREASED AIRFLOW – Vaporknit, a highly engineered body-mapped knit fabric, supports increased airflow by producing a duct-like effect. Built-in ribs on the inside of the kit help reduce cling.

Both kits are already available to buy, with the game version retailing for $164.99, the replica version retailing for $89.99 and the youth retailing for $79.99.
