Holland, Away Kit 2010/12
Ruud Gullit coined the phrase “sexy football” during his spell as a BBC pundit during Euro 96, now the Dutch may look the part with this ‘fab’ Dutch Away kit.
Stylishly incorporating the National flag, the new Holland Away Kit will be worn by stars such as Dirk Kuyt, Nigel de Jong and Klass Jan Huntelaar as they travel to South Africa in pursuit of World Cup glory.
As well as being made from around 8 recycled plastic bottles, Nike had this to say about the new Kit:
Improved Nike Dri-Fit fabric, now 13 percent lighter than previous Nike kit fabrications, helps keep players dry by drawing sweat to the outside of the garment where it evaporates. Ventilation zones have been placed on each side of the jersey to enhance breathability, and are combined with a fabric that increases air flow by up to seven percent compared to previous kits. Air can now pass across a player’s whole torso, keeping him cooler. These ventilation zones consist of up to 200 tiny laser cut holes which are backed by Nike’s innovative halo application. This treatment prevents ripping without reducing air flow.
The Nike kit shorts also have additional ventilation zones placed below the waistband and near the base of the spine, so this area prone to high sweat levels will now be significantly drier.
The jersey’s new double knit structure not only gives it a sleeker appearance, while offering 10 percent more stretch than the last Nike national team kit jerseys , but also boasts a new dynamic fit' cut to follow the natural contours of the body while still allowing for maximum airflow and movement.
