September 14, 2019 - Paris Saint-Germain's 2019-20 third kit celebrates 30 years of partnership with Nike through a modern twist on the club's 1989-90 look.
The template is taken straight from the classic kit crafted in 1989 — a white jersey topped by a fold over button-down collar and decorated by a vivid red and blue vertical stripe, which runs the length of the shirt.
In addition to the overall aesthetic, the kit has numerous other retro touches, which will take supporters back in time to the outset of one of world football’s longest-running collaborations.
Notably, like its ’89-90 predecessor, the shirt features the Nike Futura logo and a jacquard pattern rising from the fabric. For 2019-20, this takes the form of diagonal stripes with the word "Paris" subtly incorporated into the design.
The collar is fastened by two special pearlescent buttons, which are inscribed with "Paris Saint-Germain – 1989-2019" in tribute to PSG’s relationship with Nike. The club crest is placed atop the color-blocked vertical stripe and stands tall thanks to an elevated trim. A small tricolor detail on the hem of each sleeve adds a dose of national pride.
The jersey is complemented by white shorts and socks, and the socks are enlivened by red and blue hoops from knee to ankle. Both the shorts and socks also feature the vintage Nike logo.
“PSG’s jersey archive is like a treasure trove for football fans,” explains Pete Hoppins, Nike Football Apparel Senior Design Director. “So, the chance to bring back an all-time classic and put our stamp on it was a particularly exciting opportunity. Once we saw how good the jacquard pattern and retro logo looked, it actually fed into our decision to use these as themes throughout our entire range of 2019-20 third kits.”
The third kit will be worn for the first time in PSG's home game against Strasbourg on Saturday, September 14. It is available now on nike.com.
March 25, 2019 - During its six-year-long partnership with Nike, Manchester City has won six major trophies.
This limited-edition Nike x Manchester City celebrates that streak by pulling from nine of the period's iconic looks, including the 2017-18 centurion season home shirt in which the club broke the Premier League points tally record, and the third shirt from the 2013-14 domestic double winning campaign.
The shirt will be worn for the remaining fixtures.
