United States 12/14 Nike Home Leaked

Here are the first pictures of what seems to be the new United States 2012-2014 home football shirt made by Nike.

These are leaked pictures, so we have to wait for the official launch to be sure.

Thanks to Tai

This is crap. Why can't we stick to a consist style and identity like most national teams. The logo needs to go its shitty 90s clip art and they are going to put stars on it (which is a whole other issue for World Cup etc.) why only put three? Gross.

I totally agree that the crest is awful (some kind of roundel with the US Seal's bald eagle and a soccer ball, something like the new Germany emblem would be ideal) but I'd keep some stars within the crest, just to be obstinate. The only issue for World Cup etc is putting stars ABOVE the crest. Put as many as you want in them and it's cool.

As for the jersey, I've never liked vertical stripes OR hoops on a jersey, so I am not optimistic about this one.

:lol: It's all love over here man...regardless I still think it resembles the France away kit especially the back and I know the stripes are thicker but I still think it looks similar although the French kit is much cleaner...dude u wanna hit this?? Much love to all my yanks!!

I'm calling this a fake. The flag on the inside of the collar is inconsistent with what Nike is doing (with the coiled snake) and is probably covering up some other mark. The badge (or if you prefer, crest) is the pre-2006 design (shape of the shield, shade of blue, lack of gold outline). I'm fairly confident this is a fake...and thank god

hopefully it is, its nice if only the stripes were less thick, or make them look like a water mark with the same french away template, the flag sort of makes it look fake as well but we can be so sure yet.

07/08 was an update of the traditional Lisbon Lions shirt that was worn from the 60's into the 70's

I see your point though. Celtic tops seem to follow the Template that Man Utd gets or the Euro 20XX shirts

Interesting that this shirt has a sublimated area on the back (as UEFA calls for in the CL and Europa League for hoops or stripes), to add the number. This shirt also looks to have a sublimated area in the front center to add a number. Thus all US shirts that have had that "blank" area, look to be missing something on the replica unless it gets personalized.

I can just see this shirt at CP with a green ringer collar and no sublimated front area (or rear area)

I think it looks great. My real question is for Tai (the dude who supposedly hooked FSC up with the pics). Where did you come across these pictures? Any chance of leaking other Nike international kits? Can you take more photos?

Horrid. I loved the blue away shirt (should have been home). This...is garbage. Honestly, here's hoping the away kit is nicer and they just wear that. You know...maybe they should just take a hint from Captain America's costume...

I bet this means you can expect the blue away to be blue, covered in white stars, with red trim. When the red shirt came out I was telling my friend the next time they changed I bet they'd go in this direction. I don't know how I feel. Also, the U.S. Red shirt on the us soccer website says 2011-2012. So will they be keeping the red shirt they currently wear??

to be honest i like it, although me personally i always liked USA in a Pure White (white shirt white shorts white socks) kits. but i guess change is ok every now and again. kinda sad that Nike didnt keep USA with a All White kit but this is not bad actually. kinda dig it. i hope the away kit is like a all black kit like the USWNT. maybe black and a hint of red. but i like what others suggest, a blue with some stars or something. hey at least its not the same old 3 lines over and over again

Agreed 100%. Make the hoops go all the way around and have the lettering some kind of bright blue or something that will stand out. The spaces are terrible.


Yeah a blank back sounds good.

This kit is terrible. White/red hoops for an American team is painfully literal. Bad design - let's hope this shirt is a fake.

USMNT needs an identity (such as Argentina's white/blue stripes, the Dutch orange). The kits change dramatically every two years and we haven't established a look - not even a standard color for our home shirt. The current sash should stay - it was simple, referenced a past kit, and could be easily incorporated going forward.

Well done Nike; more out of date and out of touch designs that we have come to expect for the last five or six seasons.

Leave the football kits to Umbro, you stick to American sports instead.


Nike owns Umbro, therefore oversees Umbro. your arguement makes no sense. please get out

This kit will grow on me. Blue shorts would look awesome a-la 1994, that kit was awesome although a bit disorientating.

A star-spangled blue away kit would be an instant classic, again, a-la USA '94. That kit had horrible maroon shorts from what I recall...

God I hate that my country is the only one that tries to tailor its national flag into a soccer jersey. I thought one of the traditions about the U.S. flag is that it's discouraged to make clothing depicting it. That's why the current jersey has a sash and a rattlesnake around a soccer ball. Obviously fake as the current three jerseys are scheduled to remain in use at least until 2012. . .

France, Ecuador, Mexico, Colombia, Cameroon, Argentina etc etc Loads of national teams incorporate their flag to some extent, certainly to the degree that red and white stripes incorporates USA's.

I think the USA needs to get a shirt and design that defines them and stick with it. Is their home shirt blue, white, red? It seems like they can't decide from year to year what the basic template of their home kit should be. Plus they have so many great symbols and colors they can work with.
Guest

Guest

Didn't lose the sash. It's still there under the swoosh ... and now with crappy ass red bars. What else can we add to this?? How about the snake as well? Put that under the crest! Kitchen sink goes on the sleeve! This thing sucks.

For the love of any god please let adidas make the USA kits again. I'm so tired of nike throwing random things on soccer jerseys and making them 'exciting'.
Guest

Guest

The USMNT needs to just find a basic pattern and stick with it. They've been all over the map throughout their history and it seems like this is exacerbating that. The design's not bad in and of itself (though it looks like a rugby shirt to me) but it is genuinely awful as an enduring national symbol.
Guest

FairPlay It's just like another USA rubbish top, Nike gotta do better for their counterpart......but I'm gonna bet they don' cause they aren't so good in football......wonder what they'll do next to keep US Football happy 8)
Guest

Guest

Quoting truth:
That's cause we call it soccer here, and our good athletes don't play it.
It is seen as a small child's game here.

Nobody really cares if your coutry like it or not, Usa is and always will be plain garbage at FOOTBALL, the game don't need american approval or participation. BTW your sports are just stupid everywhere in the world.

So burn that flag if you must! But before you do, you'd better burn a few other things! You'd better burn your shirt and your pants! Be sure to burn your TV and car! Oh yeah, and don't forget to burn your house!
Because none of those things would exist without six red stripes, seven white stripes, and a helluva lot of stars!!

The problem with this jersey: it's FC Dallas.

You CANNOT expect fans of Houston Dynamo and USMNT to wear THIS!

Imagine if England changed to a claret and sky jersey or Spain went with blaugrana stripes.

FAIL.

Here's what some believe to be the away kit. All fears realized. Honestly I don't think it's a bad concept as far as having one kit be the stars one the stripes, just think it was poorly executed. http://www.majorleaguesoccertalk.com/us-mens-national-team-away-shirt-for-2012-13-revealed-leaked-photo-15097

Well, reminds me of a Carribean country's flag,,,,not sure which one. It's just not very inventive. The USA flag is a tough one. I'm sure Nike had many designs to go through. I'll still buy it to support Team US and fill Nike's pockets. Lol
