For France, victory must be elegant. The new kit blends military heritage with modern class and cutting-edge innovation. The pacific blue and gold colouring fuses tough fighting spirit with swagger and panache. This is the new Nike kit Le Bleus will be sporting in this summer’s tournament, and the nation will be hoping to put behind their 2010 World Cup woes in this new strip.
In line with Nike’s commitment to superior athletic performance and lower environmental impact, the fabric of the new shorts is made with 100% recycled polyester, while the fabric of the jerseys is made with at least 96% recycled polyester. Kits are made using an average of 13 recycled plastic bottles.
The new kits are Nike Football’s lightest ever — up to 23 percent lighter than the previous versions. Nike Dri-FIT technology is incorporated throughout the kits, which helps regulate players’ temperatures on pitch by removing sweat from the body to keep them dry and cool. Laser-cut ventilation on the shirts delivers localized cooling where athletes need it most.
Featuring a lightweight heat-transfer printed crest to reduce weight and an aerodynamic fit for enhanced movement, the new jersey is designed to keep you fast and efficient on the pitch. Total performance meets total football.
The aerodynamic fit is designed to keep you fast and efficient on the pitch. Every kit is designed to exacting athlete specifications. Flat-lock seams reduce irritation caused by chaffing.
The new France home 2012/13 N-98 jacket lets you show your passion with style, allowing you to wear it at anytime and anywhere.
