The most decorated nation in global football, #brasil, will step onto the pitch in 2016 in new home and away #nike Vapor kits with AeroSwift technology. The vibrant “Canarihno” yellow and vivid blue themes of the respective kits blend symbols of the country’s storied football history with cutting-edge Nike AeroSwift technology that enables on-pitch focus by reducing distractions.
“Brasil’s 2016 #nationalteamkits represent a completely new system of dress built for speed,” confirms Martin Lotti, Creative Director of #nike. “Throughout Nike’s two years of development around the new #nike Vapor Kit with AeroSwift technology, we worked with athletes to ensure this meets even their most demanding needs, and now we get to see the kits in action on the world’s best teams.”
BRASIL HOME KIT
The new home kit features a “Canarinho” yellow body. On the chest, engineered knit zones create a geometric pattern that enhances fit, with smaller mesh shapes at the bottom of the graphic.
Odes to national pride appear on both the interior and exterior of the shirt. The high-density federation crest is heat pressed to the chest and surrounded by five stars. “Brasil” appears underneath the crest and is also knit into the back collar. “Amor” (Love) and “Orgulho” (Pride) adorn the inside cuffs while the inside of the body reveals the iconic diamond of the Brasilian flag encircled by the rallying cry “Nascido Para Jogar Futebol" (Born to Play Football).
The sides of the kit feature a green stripe that runs the length of the shirt and down traditional blue shorts. Expanding when the player is in motion, the stripe maximizes ventilation and reveals bold flashes of underlying yellow. White socks highlight the most dynamic part of the footballer’s body, the lower legs, to accentuate speed.
BRASIL AWAY KIT
The team’s new away kit showcases the same innovations and design details as the home kit but in the team’s vivid traditional blue, with a contrasting light blue upper back panel and sleeves produced by cross-dyeing white with the aforementioned blue. The away kit also features classic white shorts as well as a blue option. The new away socks are blue with an ombre effect that references the blurring speed of Brasilian players.
