Another day, another excuse for Sport-locker.net to bring you a new football kit release for the upcoming 2013/14 season…
Arsenal’s new away kit fuses the club’s traditional away colours of yellow and blue with a distinct contemporary style.
The shirt is yellow with a blue polo collar and deep blue cuffs on the sleeves, both featuring a thin yellow stripe.
The polo-shirt collar reflects the best of London style, from fine gentleman’s tailoring to urban street wear.
The new away shorts are blue, and the socks feature the traditional Arsenal hoop sock design in blue and yellow.
The club was the first to wear socks featuring hoops in the 1930s under the innovative stewardship of manager Herbert Chapman.
“The kit looks and feels great. Arsenal is synonymous with yellow and blue and I think this new design fuses that tradition with a modern twist. I can’t wait to get out on the pitch and wear it,” said winger Theo Walcott.
In addition to providing the team with a striking new look, the kit also showcases Nike’s inherent belief in style, craft and strong aesthetics, while aiding the performance of players with a range of key technological features.
