With Puma taking over the Arsenal football kits partnership from the 2014/14 season and with the same home kit as last season, this is the last Nike Arsenal kit for a while.
The new away kit for the 2013/14 season is made in the traditional yellow and blue colours. The shirt is yellow with a blue polo collar and deep blue cuffs on the sleeves. Both featuring a small yellow stripe.
The design of blue and yellow socks dates to the days, when hoop stock designs were first used in 1930’s under the stewardship of legendary manager Herbert Chapman. Use of advanced technology in manufacturing kits and wears are the hallmarks of Nike, and here the kit has been made from recycled polyester, with thirteen recycled plastic water bottles are used to prepare the shirt and shorts of each kit.
Amazingly, in the modern world, where pollution has been a major reason, why life on Earth is gradually edging towards decay; Nike have found a revolutionary way of manufacturing something productive by using more than 1.1 billion plastic bottles from landfills through the use of recycled polyester. The light-weighted fabric used is integrated with Nike Dri-FIT technology, which will draw away the sweat from the body and will keep players cool and dry.
Overall, the innovative designs will add a sparkling appearance to the kit, whereas the latest technologies used would provide more comfort further enhancing the player’s performances.
