New kits honor Western Sydney's proud football history.
This season, Western Sydney Wanderers will play in Nike kits that pay homage to the club's rich football culture and tradition. Wanderers will first play in the new away kit on Aug. 12 in the FFA Cup.
The new kits maintain the club’s iconic hoops and celebrated intertwined crest that represents the team's unity and multicultural community.
Nike added more hoops to both the home and away jerseys to better reflect the club’s identity and original design.
The new cut and fit of this season's kit were inspired by classic menswear silhouettes. The change to a crewneck and updated fit modernize the kit while retaining a traditional look.
The new home shirt maintains the long-standing black and red hoops design that Western Sydney has sported since their first season. The new home shorts are white and feature the team crest, while the new home socks are black and gray with a red Swoosh and calf detail.
The new away shirt has clean and classic gray and white hoops, a change from the previous red and white hoops. The new away shorts are black and feature the team crest, while the new away socks are white and gray with a red Swoosh.
The home and away kits will be available from Aug. 7 at nike.com, in Nike stores and select retailers.
While these new kits features Nike’s signature design details, they also offer players the very latest in performance innovation, kit technology and environmental sustainability.
Nike Dri-FIT technology draws sweat away from the body to the surface of the shirt and shorts where it quickly evaporates. This allows players to perform at their absolute best by remaining cooler, drier and more comfortable.
Laser-cut ventilation holes and mesh panels in key areas of the kit also improve performance by increasing air circulation to the players’ bodies and regulating their temperatures throughout 90 minutes on the pitch.
The kits are made of a new dual-knit fabric consisting of cotton and recycled polyester, which as well as removing sweat offers a softer feel and an overall more flattering appearance.
Nike continues to place environmental sustainability at the heart of their kits, which are again made from recycled polyester.
The kits are made from recycled plastic water bottles. The shorts are 100 percent recycled polyester; the shirts are 96 percent recycled polyester, while the socks are 78 percent.
Each kit is made using an average of 18 recycled plastic bottles; over the last four years Nike has diverted almost two billion plastic bottles from landfills to produce kits.
By using recycled polyester Nike is also reducing the energy consumed in the entire process by up to 30 percent.
Nike took 3-D body scans of many of the world’s leading footballers to create a kit with an updated and improved fit.
The new fit allows the body to move more naturally within the kit, and so effortlessly improves players’ comfort and performance.
The Nike Elite Match fit sock for 2014 also boasts a sleeker and updated design created especially for football.
Nike’s designers spoke with many of today’s elite players to gain insights in to what they wanted from a sock during a game.
There are now strategically cushioned zones to provide comfort and protection around the big toe and the anklebones where the majority of impact occurs, while arch support provides a firm foundation for the foot to prevent any slipping.
There is less material on the sock to enhance players’ touch, while flex grooves on the ankle and top of the foot prevent bunching.
Equipped with NikeConnect technology, the jersey will unlock access to content from ESPN Films and Netflix’s forthcoming multi-part documentary, “The Last Dance,” and celebrate national nonprofit Friends of the Children.
