Modernized take on vintage away-kit color scheme.
Inter Milan will play some of its most significant 2015-16 away matches in a bold yellow kit that represents a modern reimagining of one of the club’s traditional away looks. Yellow has been a recurring change color for Inter Milan over the past decades; Nike Football last created a yellow kit for the club for the 2003-4 season.
A black ombré graphic accentuates the striking yellow, blending from the cuffs of the short and shirt. During night games, the effect serves to accentuate the players’ physical presence underneath the floodlights. Black socks, with dark grey chevrons on the calf, further this powerful framing of the body.
A lightweight craft crew neck collar sits atop the shirt, finishing the kit’s minimalist look. This effect is enhanced by a two-tone articulation of the club crest that aligns with the overall bright yellow and black color scheme.
The 2015-16 Inter Milan Night Rising kit will debut on pitch on October 4 against U.C. Sampdoria in Serie A TIM and will be available via the Nike Football App, nike.com, store.inter.it and select retailers beginning October 1.
This kit represents visually powerful football apparel designed with style, the culture of the club and performance in mind.
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.
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.
