PARIS Saint-Germain’s new luminous all-white third kit nods to Paris' reputation as the City of Light.

The advanced performance technology in the kit is visible on the chest, where engineered knit zones create a subtle geometric pattern that enhances fit with smaller mesh shapes at the bottom of the graphic. The sleeves and the upper back have been infused with platinum threads that shine underneath stadium lights, whereas the club’s crest and Nike Swoosh feature an iridescent finish.

Odes to club pride appear on the interior and exterior of the shirt. “Paris” is knit into the back collar, while “Grandeur” and “Passion” adorn the inside right and left cuffs, respectively. 

The sides of the kit have a black stripe that runs the length of the shirt and matching shorts. Expanding when the player is in motion, the stripe maximizes ventilation and reveals a flash of underlying white. White socks, featuring NikeGrip technology, with a platinum linear graphic on the calf, accentuate speed.

Commitment to Sustainability

Nike leverages sustainable innovation for its football kits through the use of recycled polyester, delivering unrivaled performance and lower environmental impact.

The kit’s shirt and shorts are constructed with recycled polyester fabric, which is made from recycled plastic bottles melted down to produce a fine yarn.

Each kit is made using approximately 16 recycled plastic bottles. Since 2010, Nike has diverted more than three billion plastic bottles from landfills into recycled polyester, enough to cover about 5,200 football pitches.

Nike AeroSwift Technology

These are Nike’s most technologically advanced kits ever, using new AeroSwift technology they are now 10% lighter, with 50% more stretch than last season’s kits. They use a new, textured high-performance yarn that wicks sweat from the skin 20% faster ever before, while drying 25% faster. The shirt and shorts are also constructed using a new knitting process that integrates single and double knit to enhance breathability, stretch and fit.
