Barcelona Unveil New Red Away Kit

Barcelona have unveiled a new crimson jersey as their new away kit for the 2014/15 season. The designs from the last few years hasn’t always gone over well with fans. Before the “catalan flag” jersey from last year was the awful “tequila sunrise” of bright yellow and orange.

What do you think? Is this better than last years yellow and red vertical stripes?

“While this new kit features Nike’s signature design details, it also offers players the very latest in performance innovation, kit technology and environmental sustainability.

Nike Dri-Fit technology draws sweat away from the body to the exterior of the shirts and shorts where it quickly evaporates. This helps players to perform at their absolute best by remaining cooler, drier and more comfortable.

The kits are made from recycled plastic water bottles. The shorts are 100 percent recycled polyester; the shirts are 96 percent recycled polyester, while the socks are 78 percent.

Each kit is made using an average of 18 recycled plastic bottles, and over the last four years Nike has diverted almost two billion of these bottles from landfills to produce their kits, which is enough plastic to core 2,800 football pitches.

Nike took 3D body scans of many of the world’s leading footballers to create a kit with an updated and perfect new fit. The new fit allows the body to move more naturally within the kit, and so effortlessly improves players’ comfort and performance.

The Nike Elite Match fit sock for 2014 also boasts a sleeker and updated design created especially for football.”
