Slovenia 10/12 nike Away kit

Nike unveiled the new Slovenia 10/12 Away kit which is designed for increased performance with lower environmental impact, and will be worn at the World Cup 2010. 8 plastic bottles are used to produce one jersey in the new Nike kit, which  will be available through the FSC Shop

To make the 2010 national team kits, Nike’s fabric suppliers sourced discarded plastic bottles from Japanese and Taiwanese landfill sites and then melted them down to produce new yarn that was ultimately converted to fabric for the jerseys.

This process saves raw materials and reduces energy consumption by up to 30 percent compared to manufacturing virgin polyester. By using recycled polyester for its new range of national jerseys, Nike prevented nearly 13 million plastic bottles, totaling nearly 254,000 kg of polyester waste, from going into landfill sites. This amount would be enough to cover more than 29 football pitches. If the recycled bottles used to make the jerseys were laid end-to-end they would cover more than 3,000 kilometres, which is more than the entire coastline of South Africa.

 Considering the environment doesn’t mean sacrificing the innovative performance elements of Nike’s kits. For this summer’s finals, the kits have been designed to keep players drier, cooler and more comfortable, allowing them to maintain an optimum body temperature and perform at their best on the pitch.

Improved Nike Dri-Fit fabric, now 15 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.

You already posted this in design football, and my feelings towards the red shirt have not changed. Its still an abomination.

So why post the same comment again? It's pointless.

I think these are a good selection of designs. I would like to see them incorporated in real life.<br /><br />However, I am not a Newcastle fan. I have no knowledge of what the colours symbolise etc.

That shade of red is the colour of Sunderland, thats one of the reasons why the shirt is a big big no. The other reason is that it is synominous with the defeat at Hereford United, and the fact that it is a 125th anniversary shirt makes it even worse. Kristov, If you want to make a 125th aniv toon shirt, stick to black and white. That shirt is like having a Liverpool 125th shirt in white and bottle green quaters, or a German National team 100 years in a green shirt - a reminder of a humiliation.

We got rid of the shit 2007-2009 shirt, and the Home kit is really nice.<br /><br />The home should be black and white always, the away should be yellow or blue, and the third should be blue or yellow, not the same fucking shade of red as the Mackems.

to be fair, most non-european clubs don&#039;t really need a 3rd kit. championship sides definately dont, they just need to make sure the away is a completely different contrast to the home.

 
  1. Chris Smith

you just got relegated to th championship, yet another humiliation, what colour you playing in next year then? :P

 
  1. Matthew Wilkinson

And yellow is a god enough contrast. Most of your designs are decent, but are lot down a bit by the presentation. You should really post each shirt up on its own, as the shirts look blocky and not as high quality as if they were posted individually. <br /><br />I do like the home kit, and the sponsor as well, but it would look nicer with a proper collar and the diamond and the crest level on the shirt. On the away, change the blue and the white to green on the shirt, nad add a proper collar, the same type of collar as the red shirt would be nice, and lose the blue crosses on the shoulders.

Oh yeah, and the design of the red shirt is nice, its just the colour. change it to navy, and its a winner

MW FROM WIDEOPEN if you look back in the history books the first ever Newcastle united home strip after the newcastle east and newcastle west joined forces was actualy red. newcastle united only changed from all red shirts because at the time there were too many teams with red shirts(woolich arsenal, forrest, liverpool, ect ect) and away jersies werent a thing teams used.<br />i can understand your argument thought being a geordie myself as the same thing happened when we celebrated our centenary back in 1992 we had the purple hooped away shirt with a grandad collar, but if we were to play that season true to history we would have played in red. i myself like all three shirts and lets face it theres loads of red on the bigg market on a friday night if we hate red so much why does alot get spilled where we are little tipsy.<br />nice designs though

We werent celebrating 100 years back then, because there was nothing to celebrate. We were fighting for survival in the basement of the second tier of English football, and it looked like we were going to go bust if we went down. Oxford United beat us 5-2 in the last game of the reign of Ossie Ardilles, and we looked dead and buried. Then Keegan saved this club. We were wearing a yellow shirt as the away, no special shirts. TBH I dont think we need a 125 year shirt. The 1995 shirt was a much different shade than the red the mackems used.<br /><br />Sorry Kristov if Ive been rude. To be honest, Id rather the toon played in the all red than the horror Mike has given us for 2009-10 away:eek:: :eek:: :eek:: :eek::
