Netherlands Nike Away Shirt 2013
Here is the new Netherlands Nike away shirt for 2013 unveiled by Kevin Strootman, Ricardo van Rhijn and Adam Maher.
The shirt has a striking look encompassing the colours of the Dutch national flag.
The new away shirt mirrors the home shirt. It has two shapes, one covering the crest and the other at the hem. The top shape above the crest is red whilst the one at the hem is blue. The shirt is complemented with white shorts and white socks.
On the new away kit, national team coach Louis van Gaal, said: “As we start on our new journey as a team, the new away for the side represents a new beginning for the national team. It’s an exciting time ahead for the squad and the nation.”
In line with Nike’s commitment to combining performance with lower environmental impact, fabric for the new kit’s shorts is made with 100% recycled polyester, while the shirt fabric is made with a minimum 96% recycled polyester. Each kit is made using an average 13 recycled plastic bottles.
The kit are constructed using Nike Dri-FIT technology to wick moisture and are made out of 23 percent lighter fabric with 20 percent stronger knit structure than Nike’s previous kits. The shirts also feature laser-cut ventilation holes to promote localised cooling, to help regulate player temperatures during a match.
