Classic colors meet Nike Football performance innovation in Paris Saint-Germain home kit.
For the 2015-16 season, Paris Saint-Germain will play in a modern and stylish new home kit that emphasizes the team’s growing status in both French and European football.
This sleek design from Nike Football combines Paris Saint-Germain’s celebrated home colors of blue, red and white, respectively representing the club’s core values of grandeur, respect and passion.
The home shirt features a navy blue body with Paris Saint-Germain’s instantly recognizable red sport stripe. The updated stripe — widened with white trim on either side — runs the full length of the shirt, down the center from a new, clean crewneck collar.
Dark blue shoulders and sleeves create a powerful and physically imposing look, with stripes in this color running down each of the shirt’s flanks.
The shorts also feature a dark blue hue, complemented by a traditional navy stripe on each side.
Inside the neck reads the proud club statement, “ICI C’EST PARIS” (“Here it’s Paris”). These three words evoke Paris Saint-Germain’s status within the French capital and pay homage to the club’s Parc des Princes home — a stadium that represents the heart of Paris’s football culture.
The new home socks are predominantly navy, featuring a series of darker blue chevrons on the back of the calf.
While this new kit represents a proud symbol of the club, it offers players the very latest in Nike performance innovation, fabric technology, moisture management and environmental sustainability.
The Paris-Saint Germain home kit will be available exclusively via the Nike Football App on May 23, and on sale in stores and at nike.com starting May 27.
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 a full mesh fabric – this makes up the full front and back panel of the shirt, increasing airflow and facilitating 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.
