France Away 2011/2012 Nike

This is the new French national team away kit manufactuered by Nike, which will be available here.

PARIS March 7th: Nike today unveils the new national team away kit for the French Football Federation, celebrating the new era in French Football.

Nike's partnership with the French Football Federation was launched in Paris in January this year, and is encapsulated by an overall campaign titled 'Vive Le Football Libre'. The striking new design of the away kit captures the spirit of the French team whilst bringing superior performance innovation and unparalleled elegance on pitch.

The new away jersey takes strong visual cues from the 'marinière', a piece of French history since the last century, and now a timeless French style icon. The marinière first appeared as the uniform of sailors in the French navy in the 19th century and was first seen in civilian wardrobes in the early 20th century. Soon, it would become a symbol of French culture, adopted by free-spirited individuals in France and beyond.

The jersey has a tailored fit that allows freedom of movement on pitch. The lightweight fabric features Nike Dri-FIT technology and engineered ventilation systems to help keep players cool, coupled with ergonomic cut and soft cotton feel for player comfort.

The kit also embraces Nike's Considered Design approach and - along with the home kit launched earlier this year - is Nike's most environmentally sustainable kit to date, with shirt and shorts made from microfiber polyester that is entirely derived from recycled plastic bottles. For the shirt, this material is combined with organic cotton (96% recycled polyester, 4% organic cotton).

The kit is seen for the first time in photography shot by a true icon of the fashion and photography world, Karl Lagerfeld. The photo, which captures the revolutionary elegance of the away kit, features Alou Diarra, one of the faces of the new era of the French team.

It's designed to disrupt the umpire's field of vision so as not uncover the numerous French handballs.

Totally agree,
but there are no umpires...that's baseball...this is football (soccer) and they are called referees

Hardly mate, wind your neck in. People are allowed to have a laugh, I am sure if a Scotland, Ireland or Wales shirt popped up here then there would be some loose banter.

Come off it mate, it's worth pointing out that the French are considered to be the same race as the english (caucasian), nigerian and Pakistani are not, here is where the distinction lies. At worst it was xenophobic, and tbh it wasn't even that.

It was a highly xenophobic and offensive comment - no place for that in Football

That's not banter though is it, it's your sheer f***ing racist English ignorance. Put the UK in France's position with a Nazi war machine rumbling across open ground and I'm sure we would have surrendered too. At least they have some pride. Idiot.

You what? Mate, wind it in!! You need to check your history... and not the American verison where you're all made out to be gung-ho heroes!! We all did our bit... and you certainly did not 'save our asses' you dick. You waited and waited to enter the war, like you normally do, until the ideal opportunity to swan in and claim the glory... like you normally do.

Back to the kit... I think it's bloody awful. I actually liked the home kit and thought a simple reverse of that would have been great... this is cringeworthy.

Kind of like the English being lucky to have had the channel and the Americans to save their asses?

What a complete moron. Every site gets them and this is one. Ask your history teacher when you are back in school tomorrow. You might learn something you stupid shite. Trawl some other forums for a row you faceless prick. I'd love to have the pleasure of meeting you some time....

I was clicking into this page totally expecting a boring all-white kit, and boom... IMHO this totally makes up for what deficiency the home kit has created, and then some. It's Nike staying in character while making it very French.

This kit looks really nice it is very unique. I love all the kits Nike is doing so far with France and Brazil I can't wait what they have in store for USA. Not trashing Adidas I know France and Adidas has history and made some iconic kits but lately Adidas had been failing a bit with their mass produced dull design Nike was definitely a upgrade. I'm not French but I.thing what I like the most is that they were able to bring out subtle yet significant things from French culture and applying it to their design without over killing it. Id be very proud to wear this if I was French
two thumbs way up

You're a serious idiot. I guess you are one of these people that are satisfied with anything nike produces right? Are you seriously telling me that if you take the French crest away that you don't just have a white Nike shirt with blue stripes on it? you're a idiot then and that's why Nike can get away with these "designs"

Don't even start, were you one of those that was salivating over everything umbro produced which had nothing on it yet was deemed magnificent? No I am not a paid up memeber of a nike fan club, they have produced some horrors but I know class when I see it. This is a great jersey, look how many people agree.

There actually seems to be a pretty even split. Some hate it some love it. Doesn't really matter to me because I wouldn't wear a French kit either way but I'm partial to the Adidas designs from 2006 onwards.

The crest itself looks very good actually. If you read what I said, I was saying that if not for the crest on the jersey that this would look like any Nike t-shirt. Nothing special. Look at some of the J-Leagues jerseys or jerseys from some of the lower teams or divisions. Some of the companies are actually putting some effort in them. Not so for so many Nike jersey's.

Seriously, is this a joke? These jerseys look like an old French sailor's uniform.

Allons, enfants de la patrie,
le jour de gloire est arrive,
contre nous de la tyrannie
l'etendard sanglant est leve,
l'etendard sanglant est leve.
Entendez-vous, dans le campagnes,
mugir ces feroces soldats?
ils viennent jusque dans no bras,
egorger nos fils, nos compagnes.
Aux armes, citoyens! formez vos bataillons! marchons! marchons!
qu'un sang impur abreuve nos sillons!

Your Irish? No wonder you hate it. A bit biased are you?? :P Time to get a psychiatrist so u can get over it.

Nothing to do with our last encounter I assure you. Everyone here is entitled to an opinion my friend. I have an unbiased opinion in this case and I don't need any quack to help me get over our defeat to France. That is not in the Irish mentality. That's just sport, and a piece of history now. We may not have a successful international history in football, but we are an honest side and our fans are welcome anywhere.

?!? Oh get a life my friend... Maybe you should see the psychiatrist you mentioned... At least I've said where I'm from...I'm not ashamed of it, maybe that's why you are so irked... I really couldn't be arsed arguing with you if you dont mind so you may as well have the last word with a predictable final insult...off you go. You will feel much better...

if you ever want to see an original jersey look at the Shimizu S-Pulse old jerseys with the map of the world and for a few years leaves and all that. Also find an old Uganda U-21 national team jersey made by Hummell, incredible. Those are jerseys not this shit that Nike keeps turning up or adidas.

Holly shit, yes...how the hell did you find it and where?
that's an old jersey but, incredibly different. You won't find another team with this just different colours. That's what makes so many of today's jerseys look like shit. Great find my friend, great find....

Just because it's supposed to symbolize "timelessness" doesn't mean it isn't complete and utter shit. Possibly THE worst single Nike jersey I've ever seen in the last 20 years. And that's saying a lot.

WTF!!!

Those "Africans" are in the FRENCH team for a reason!
you can't play for France and not be french!
plus most of them were born in France
and France has overseas territories
so Malouda who is from French Guiana and others like him are French!

GROW THE HELL UP!
