Preston North End unveiled their new home and away kits for the 2008/2009 season. The new kits are designed by Diadora and have retained many of the traditional elements of Preston North End shirts from years gone by, including an all-lilywhite shirt and a return of the hooped socks.
It has already been a huge hit with PNE fans with hundreds pre-ordering to ensure they got their hands on it first. The players are also looking forward to wearing what it the most traditional looking PNE strip for many years. The yellow away kit is favoured by many PNE supporters and the kit has a contemporary sports design made to compliment the retro classic style of the home strip.
Diadora, the Italian sportswear manufacturer who's 60th anniversary it is this year has given the influence to creating a modern retro concept, from this they have designed the silhouette that stands up to the tests of the modern game incorporating technical fabrics and anatomically positioned mesh panels for style and function. This season's kit has been designed with a strong international feel which uses the influences and history of Preston North End, returning to a classic look for the home kit incorporating clean lines and functionality of fabric positioning.
- The shirt is considerably lighter than last year thus enabling less drag, ease of movement & increased performance.
- Main body fabric is durable but with a soft handle for maximum comfort, the material has wicking properties to transport any moisture away from the body quicker than previous fabrics used.
- Mesh ventilation panels help to regulate a player's temperature.
