We teased it back when Nike revealed the new France Home Shirt, and now we can show you the full deal – presenting the new Brazil Shirts Home and Away 2011!
In a change from 2010, Nike have opted to spoil us with both the Home and Away shirts at the same time – and spill all the details on what makes both kits to special!
First up, the legendary Canary Yellow Home shirt. Nike have designed this incarnation of the famous Brazil home shirt with a classic crew neck that they tell us is perfect to keep players cool and comfortable on the pitch.
Next is an eye-catching green bar across the front of the new home shirt, underlining the Nike logo and famous CBF logo with it’s striking design.
The shirt will be teamed with the classic blue shorts and white socks, to round off the kits really athletic look – perfect for Samba superstars and their fans the world over!
Next is the away, which has undergone a more drastic effort than last year’s blue-with-yellow-spots effort! Looking resplendent in a turquoise shade that really looks great with the traditional canary yellow.
Speaking of the yellow, we think the bar across the chest looks even better on the away kit than the home and stops them looking too plain.
According to our friends at Nike – both the New Brazil Home and Away Shirts 2011 have the following features:
Crafted from 13% lighter fabric that uses up to 8 recycled plastic bottles per jersey, the boldly durable design represents pinnacle kit design for Nike Football.
Crew-neck design provides a comfortable, non-restricting fit.
Bonded hem offers a streamlined look that reduces the irritation caused by chafing.
Team crest on the left chest is heat transferred for a bold way to show Brazilian national pride.
Patriotic screenprint graphics of Brasil on the back and the Brazilian flag on the inside of the neck for subtle design details.
“Nascido Para Jogar Futebol” – ‘Born to Play Football’ on the inside of the neck
Dri-FIT fabric to wick sweat away and help keep you dry and comfortable.
Considered Design for high performance and low environmental impact.
The New Brazil Home and Away Shirts 2011 will get their debut against France on the 9th of February at the Stade de France in a hotly-anticipated friendly match (well, the Home one will anyway!).
We can reveal that the Kits will be available at retail from mid-March along with a new range of training gear.
We think the New Brazil Home and Away Shirts 2011 look pretty neat and athletic, if a little understated!
But what matters is what YOU think – that’s just the way it is on Footy-Boots.com!
