Preston North End have unveiled their new home kit for the 2008/09 season made by Diadora. The kit designed by diadora has retained many of the traditional elements of Preston North End shirts from years gone by, including an all-lilywite shirt and a return of the hooped socks. The kit will be on general sale from Saturday 14th June 9am.
Diadora, the Italian sportswear manufacturer who's 60th anniversary it is this year has given the influence to creating a modern retro concept, from this they have designed the silhouette that stands up to the tests of the modern game incorporating technical fabrics and anatomically positioned mesh panels for style and function.
This season's kit has been designed with a strong international feel which uses the influences and history of Preston North End FC, returning to a classic look for the home kit incorporating clean lines and functionality of fabric positioning. The shirt is considerably lighter than last year thus enabling less drag, ease of movement & increased performance. Main body fabric is durable but with a soft handle for maximum comfort, the material has wicking properties to transport any moisture away from the body quicker than previous fabrics used. Mesh ventilation panels help to regulate a player's temperature.
