This is the new Internazionale 11/12 nike away football shirt, which will be available here. Inter rose to the top of the world to pose for Nike on one of the highest roofs in Beijing. That is to say, the heliport deck above the eightieth floor of the hotel that is housing the team on their visit for the Italian Super Cup.
Inter and Nike chose to present the new away shirt for the 2011/12 season to the world from China. A view from above for a historic strip: made with innovative recycled polyester, it is inspired by the one worn by the players for their achievements in the legendary 1964/65 season, in which they won the Scudetto, their first European Cup and their first Intercontinental Cup. The body of the shirt is white and features a black and blue diagonal stripe on both sides. The diagonal stripe appeared on an Inter strip for the first time in the '50s, and for supporters it brings to mind the extraordinary successes of the '60s.
Therefore, the new away shirt combines the club's tradition with a classic men's clothing line that is especially elegant. This kit even recalls the type of high tailoring of the design one finds in the home shirt: a collar in black fabric with the lower part in blue and a two-button closure, drop stitching on the shoulder and a deep cuff on the sleeve. On the back of the shirt below the collar is the word "Inter", while inside the collar there is a red cross on a white background, representing the flag of the city of Milan. The shorts that go with the second shirt are white with a blue stripe on the sides, while the socks are completely white with the word "Inter" written on the back of each calf.
With fabric made from recycled material, Nike Dri-FIT and aerodynamic lines, the new strips (shirt and shorts) are made entirely from an innovative recycled polyester by Nike: each one of them is derived directly from the recycling of fourteen plastic bottles. The kits also actively contribute to the regulation of the athlete's body temperature thanks to the Nike Dri-FIT fabric. The shirt features a new aerodynamic fit, now more pronounced, which offers an elasticity that is 17% higher than the previous model.
And this year, in addition to the kit, the training and lifestyle collections were also presented. The training range, made with highly technological fabrics, allows for optimum training in any kind of weather. The collection is completed with the Express line of lifestyle clothing, dedicated to all the supporters who in their free time want to dress with style, elegance and passion for the Nerazzurri's colours.
The Inter 2011/12 away shirt will be on sale, beginning in mid-August.
