Over the past five years, Chilean football has claimed two major trophies and solidified its current crop of talent as the most successful team in the country’s history. The Chilean Football Federation Collection acknowledges these achievements and sets a new standard for La Roja’s next cycle of qualifications.
Here are the new collections’ key design details:
1. La Roja
Unsurprisingly, Chile’s bright red not only informs the byname for the National Team, but also serves as the base of the all-new Nike Vaporswift Fast Fit Chile home jersey. This pairs with Gym Blue shorts and, for the first time, Gym Blue socks.
2. The Condor
The graphic on La Roja’s away jersey was inspired by the Andean condor, Chile’s national bird (a first for the country’s national jersey). “We had a huge opportunity to show Chilean culture to the world with the away kit,” explains Pete Hoppins, Nike Football Apparel Senior Design Director. “The away kit represents a modern Chile, the prowess of their national icon in the condor and the blistering intensity at which football is played in the country.”
3. Chilean Street Signs
Chile’s kit feature a custom typeface that pays homage to Santiago’s street signs and Chilean car number plates. A reflective eight-point star pattern provides additional visibility under the floodlights.
4. The Chilean Flag
Chile’s inner pride graphic fuses the five-point star from the National Flag, the football association crest and the eight-point star from the Mapuche war flag. Linear fills nod to textiles patterns and early versions of the Chilean Football Federation crest.
The 2018 Chilean Football Federation Collection will debut on-pitch April 4. The entire collection will be available April 19 at retail stores.
The 2018 Chilean Football Federation collection features Fast Fit Vaporknit kits to facilitate speed through performance and aesthetic.
Nike Fast Fit Vaporknit kits feature the following benefits:
1. Optimal Breathability
The open-hole texture of the knit on the chest and back are precisely plotted against footballers’ heat and sweat maps for optimal breathability.
2. High-Tech Crest
The new heat transfer crest is 64% lighter than previous crest applications, and Nike’s most-breathable ever.
3. Increased airflow
Vaporknit, a highly engineered body-mapped knit fabric, supports increased airflow by producing a duct-like effect and Built-in ribs on the inside of the jersey help reduce cling.
4. Sleek Sleeves
Engineered yarns on the sleeves contribute to the speed aesthetic of the jersey.
5. Better Range of Motion
The short has no outer seams, which reduces friction and increases range of motion.
