Nike channel the colour-scheme of one of their most famous ever club shirts with the new Arsenal Away Kit!
Echoing the famous lightning-striped 1995-96 away kit (the second ever away kit Nike ever made for Arsenal Football Club), the new Arsenal Away Kit marries cyan and navy once more on the gunners change strip!
It’s two years since the Arsenal away kit has been blue, with Nike having opted for the traditional away kit of yellow, so the return to a blue hue for the gunners will likely prove a popular one with many fans.
The front of the new away shirt is divided into two halves, one in navy blue and one in turquoise blue, inspired by the away kits worn by Arsenal teams from the past. The diagonal line represents the gnomon, the pointer which casts the shadow on a sundial, inspired by the original Dial Square sundial on the site of the Arsenal munitions factory in Woolwich, where the Club was first conceived in 1886.
The back of the shirt is entirely navy blue, while one sleeve is navy blue and the other turquoise blue, with a stripe in three parts on each to once more represent the Dial Square sundial.
In line with the home shirt, the new Arsenal Away Kit features the commemoratively-designed 125th anniversary crest, to mark a century-and-a-quarter of Arsenal FC.
As for the tech-specs, Nike˘ flagship features like Dri-Fit and laser-cut vents make their usual appearance here, and the Considered Design initiative is still going strong, with the shorts now also being spun out of recycles plastic bottles from landfill sites, making the 2011-12 range of Nike kits their most eco-friendly yet.
As you can see in the shots of Jack Wilshire, Nike are also readying the launch of the new Premier League football – stay tuned to Footy-Boots.com for information on that launch very soon, indeed!
The kit is available for pre-order now via our store' and will be available in stores from late July.
