AS MONACO away kit launch

Subtle navy stripes run down the shirt's flanks, extending along the sides of the navy blue shorts.

Additionally, the new away socks are navy blue with a gold Nike swoosh on the shin.

The AS Monaco away kit is available July 23 at Nike.com and select retailers.

A proud symbol of club heritage, the new kit is also progressive. It offers the latest in Nike performance innovation, fabric technology, moisture management and environmental sustainability.

NIKE DRI-FIT TECHNOLOGY
Nike Dri-FIT technology draws sweat away from the body to the exterior of the shirts and shorts, where it quickly evaporates. This allows players to perform at their best by remaining cooler, drier and more comfortable.
 
The laser-cut ventilation holes and mesh panels in key areas of the kit are designed to improve performance by increasing air circulation to the players’ bodies and helping regulate their temperatures.
 
The jersey is crafted using an engineered mesh fabric — this is used in both the shirt’s front and back panels to increase airflow and facilitate enhanced movement.

SUSTAINABLE INNOVATION
Nike places sustainable innovation at the heart of its kits through the use of recycled polyester, delivering unrivalled performance and lower environmental impact.
 
Each piece of the kit – the shirt, shorts and socks — is constructed with recycled polyester, which is made from recycled plastic bottles that are melted down to produce fine yarn used to create the fabric. Each kit is made using an average of 18 recycled plastic bottles. Since 2010, Nike has diverted more than 2 billion plastic bottles from landfills into recycled polyester — enough to cover about 3,500 football pitches.
 
By using recycled polyester, Nike is also reducing the energy consumed in the manufacturing process by up to 30 percent compared to virgin polyester. For more information, visit nikebetterworld.com.
