Arsenal 12/13 Nike Home Football Shirt

arsenal 12/13 nike home football shirt

Arsenal Football Club unveiled its new Nike home kit for the 2012/2013 season, which is available here.

WATCH THE KIT LAUNCH VIDEO HERE

The playing kit features a blue hoop detail inspired by the home kit socks worn in the 1930s under legendary manager Herbert Chapman.

As is traditional with the north London club, the world renowned red and white is the main colour way in the shirt, with a block red body and white sleeves.

Further details in the shirt include the outer back neck graphic which references the WM formation that Chapman pioneered so successfully, along with the inner back graphic which reads “Victoria, Concordia, Crescit” – the Club’s long-held motto since 1948 which translates as Victory through Harmony*.

The origins of the blue (obsidian) design features lie in Chapman’s innovative approach to the game. Arsenal manager between 1925 and 1934, his guidance took the Club to three league titles and an FA cup victory during that time.

Chapman was a modernising tactician, advocated the use of numbered shirts and white balls, and also made significant changes to the Club’s kit for the 1933/34 season. In that year white sleeves were added to the previously all-red shirt and blue hoops were also introduced to the socks. Chapman’s rationale for these innovations was he wanted to maximise player visibility, making it easier for his players to pick each other out on the field of play.

Arsenal’s Theo Walcott commented: “The players always get excited about trying on kits for the first time, and this one doesn’t disappoint. Arsenal is a club with an incredible history and to see this recognised in such a classy and modern kit is brilliant.”

The shirt’s crest reverts back to Arsenal’s primary design, having sported a unique 125th anniversary version for the 2011/12 season.

The kit is available for pre-order from Monday, May 7 and will be available in stores from June 7.

I'm not a fan of this, I understand the historical reasons for the blue in the kit but it just doesn't look good on the sleeves like that, blue and red on the sleeves is too much, it spoils the white sleeve look that is both what Arsenal are known for and a very attractive design. Perhaps if the red band wasn't there as well it would look better.

While I'm not a huge fan of the double stripes on the sleeves, I am glad that they remain near the shoulder on the long-sleeved version, rather than down near the cuff (as they have been in years past).

Jesus ... How sick am I with all these kits 'inspired' by these non-events in the clubs history!?!?

What next? An England kit with a 'tribute' bloodstain on it in honour of Terry Butcher's gash (*snigger*) against Sweden? Colombia kit with 3 bullet holes by the crest named 'The Escobar'? The next Arsenal kit to have a dark patch beneath the neck in honour of Viera's vaporub stain? (I'm sure that one will actually happen though)

I actually saw a pre-season friendly where Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler came on as a sub and accidentally put his shirt on inside out ... I'm pitching it to Liverpool for the official 'Robbie Fowler Reversed Football Shirt' for the 2025 season ...

Ridiculous.

Are you saying that Herbert Chapman is a non-event in the club's history?
Wow, you know Arsenal's past very well...

The guy was a genius who built Arsenal to what it is today.
They honoured him with the burgundy/black hoops, and they do with this kit.

I agree that sometimes tributes get overboard but this is certainly not the case.

Erm ... One at a time:

Un-named person who has commented on my comment with the wrong quote - I'm assuming you're referring to Ratonu.

mOMe - Of course Herbert Chapman is not an non-event in Arsenal's history, I never actually said that so check you understand things before commenting on them in the future ... The non-event was how Chapman added Blue hoops to the socks in the 1930s and how a BRAND NEW kit is brought out in commemoration of that event ... As far as I've been aware Arsenal's link to blue hoops in their kit has not been so intrinsically linked ...

And 'mkg' - I don't think mOMe is a: Bell End. I just think they are passionate about being an Arsenal fan and can't take a bit of criticism ... Just like their manager ...

def inspired by last seasons manure away kit!
However, most modern football shirts are rubbish; boring and made from dirt cheap material under the disguise of "dry-fit" or "climacool" technology when the only real technology is how to make the things as cheap as possible.
Best era for kits was late 80s (remember those classic villa, coventry and soton hummel kits) to early 90s (Derby away, Luton away and 3rd, shef utd fluo yellow with red socks).

If I were the designers/club I would have personally relate the red, white and blue hoops to the RAF Roundel (which the logo looks very similar to) and said that Woolwich Arsenal used to make ammunition and bombs for the British armed forces.

"The playing kit features a blue hoop detail inspired by the home kit socks worn in the 1930s under legendary manager Herbert Chapman."

Really? That's some fairly obscure inspiration there, first time I have heard a kits inspiration coming from the socks they wore... Must have been struggling for ideas this year.

Can't believe the fact that Arsenal use white & navy is due to Herbert Chapman's affiliation with Spurs has yet to be mentioned, wanting to emulate their classic kits by introducing the THFC colours... But why am I surprised considering they're the first franchise club in English football anyway.

I like it - has a slightly 'American' feel to it, like a baseball or American Football shirt (not really surprising considering Nike's nationality), but yeah, pretty nice. Don't know why they don't use navy as a third colour all the time - lifts the shirt a bit more. Lets hope the Gunners can finally win something in it next season!
PS If he stays fit and plays with Van Persie (assuming the Dutchman stays), Podolski will be the best signing Wenger has made since Bergkamp. No kidding, he's THAT good.

You know the prototype looked horrid but I am liking it. The armbands idea is a little different but strangely it says Arsenal. I'm half-tempted to get it - even though I prefer my '10/'11 shirt this is still a great kit, and IMHO the blue's been used tastefully. COYG!

I like this kit a hell of alot. I know it doesn't seem like a gooners shirt. But some times its good to do something different, how many ways are there to do red shirt white sleeves without upsetting someone.

Looks like it could be the U.S. national team kit. I like it, but it's not the the most Arsenal-like one I've seen.

The early leaked design ended up looking a lot like this final design, save for the socks which are a considerable improvement over the solid blue that they were going to go with. Overall, I like it.

Almost the same as the past two seasons, but with the obvious blue additions and the normal badge back. Boring.

I personally think it looks great.
Last season everyone bitched and moaned that it was another red shirt with plain white sleeves and was too similar to the 2010-11 shirt. So they've done something new, which looks pretty wearable as a fan and people are still moaning.
I don't even think it's that controversial.
We've had navy on our kits pretty regularly since 1982, and had hooped socks from the 30's to the 60's, as well as in the 80's and 90's. No big deal.
It looks contemporary, which is where I think we want to be as a club, and the players look class in the video.
If we can start next season in the way that we've played since November then it could become a memorable kit.

The lines on the sleeves reminds me of baggy sport clothing of the 90's. I actually think this looks great!

Whether you like the design or not, you have to respect the amount of thought put into it. They're trying innovate while honoring their heritage. Something adidas rarely does.

The reason arsenal always have a bit of blue in their kit, is a gesture of thanks to Tottenham for lending Arsenal their home ground at somepoint in the early WW2 era, as i think highbury had been requisitioned by the government. The Arsenal board agreed to have (a bit of) blue in their kit ever since.

Doubt arsenal will wear the longsleeve top as long as rvp is captain... cuz dont arsenal have some sort of club rule between team mates where if the captain wears short sleve all the player on the pitch have to wear short sleeve also...

I like the new kit but it doesn't look that good when the sleeves are long. I wish people stop hating it just cuz there a bit of blue on the kit. Be lucky that your not a united fan. :lol:

Disgusting.
Hey robbie ^ why whould we buy it?
Just saying it is actually an appalling shirt,

Now now, why would a true supporter buy all the latest shirts?
For me a true supporter gets their first shirt (like me in the 70s) and then wears that one for ever - showing long lasting devotion and support.

What an ugly shirt.

Heard rumours Nike are further developing Arsene's sleeping bag for next season and have agreed a deal to sell it in selected Millets stores. "Lets all do the Wenger!"

Arsenal with blue on their sleeves isnt original and by nike changing the original red and white by putting blue in it they have ruined the arsenal kit

Sublime, the nicest kit we have had since Adidas...which ironically isn't too dissimilar to the 93/94 shirt! Nice touch with the navy, injects a little bit of life into the kit. Looks nice with the navy socks too.
