News from over the pond as Nike have unveiled a controversial third shirt for the USMNT and USWNT.
On it’s own, the design is pretty bland. Coming in the Nike Vapor 2016 template, the new USA third shirt is plain red with darker red sleeves, with navy trim at the collar and hips. A white Nike logo and monochromatic badge finish off the shirt.
Red shorts and socks finish the kit off.
As soon as it was released, people started to realise it’s similarity to other Nike kits: Portugal home, England away and PSG away. This isn’t the first time that Nike’s originality and creativity has been questioned in the last few years.
Also, people were angry that Nike is releasing third kits for national teams, as some feel that it is unnecessary and that they are only released for economic reasons.
