Today Nike announced their Manchester United away kit for the 2013-14 season, inspired by the city’s industrial heritage.
Manchester United may as well be a clothing brand in their own right and I’m sure that fans will enjoy the arrival of this away kit for 2013-14; a less vibrant option than the usual United red of the home kit. Using a larger version of the gingham print dound on last season’s home kit but in black and midnight navy, this away kit pays homage to the textile industry that boomed in Manchester in the 18th century. Added touches include the black crew neck collar and white woven devil inside the back of the neck. It’s also interesting to see how well the club’s world renowned branding looks in midnight navy.
We won’t go into the technicals, but you can rest assured that this kit is at the top of the game, featuring some of Nike’s leading technologies such as recycled polyester, Dri-FIT, welded seams and laser cut ventilation.
Expect to see the kit in all good sports stores and Nike stores soon.
