In recent years, Sport-locker.net have been huge fans of the French football away jerseys – and it looks as if that trend will continue with their new away kit for 2013.

And here it is, in its entirely eye-catching pale blue silhouette with tricolore detail beauty!

The shirt has a button collar and the iconic French cockerel crest. Both sleeves have a tricolore motif while another tricolore detail can be found on the right sleeve.

The signature “our differences bring us together”, found on the French national team kits since 2011, is printed in the inside of the shirt, just below the collar. The pale blue also adorns the shorts and socks. The shorts have the tricolore detail on each side, while the top of the socks also sport the famous red, white and blue of the French flag.

In line with Nike’s commitment to combining performance with lower environmental impact, fabric for the new kit’s shorts is made with 100 percent recycled polyester, while the shirt fabric is made with a minimum 96 percent recycled polyester. Each kit is made using an average 13 recycled plastic bottles.
