Kit manufacturer Nike and the English Football Association have launched Englands home and away football kits that will be worn in the upcoming Euro 2016 Championship in France. Keeping to tradition, the new home football shirt is white while the away shirt is in world cup winning red.
Staying true to the iconic white England football shirts of the past, the new England 2016 football kit introduces new design elements in light blue. While the Nike Swoosh and the lions inside the FA crest are royal blue, ice-blue trim is present in the form of a stripes panel on the sleeves, a recurring theme of Nike’s Copa America and Euro 2016 kits. Royal blue lines run down the sides and sleeves of the England kit, as well as along the rear of the collar.
The England home football shirt will be worn with white shorts and red socks which is sure to stir controversy among the England faithfuls. Additionally, sky blue socks are available to be used together with the new England shirt in case of color clashes.
