The new 2016 USA Nike Vapor Kit with Aeroswift Technology for both the U.S. Men and Women’s National Teams was unveiled today in New York City. The new jerseys will be on display in this summer’s major competitions as the MNT hosts Copa America Centenario and the WNT defends its gold during the 2016 Olympics in Rio.
To pay tribute to the nation both inside and out, the jerseys are adorned with several patriotic flares throughout the material. The players will wear their hearts (and country) on their sleeve with “1 Nation” and “1 Team” exposed on the outside cuffs, while the inside displays a circular design with “We Can,” “We Will,” “We Are,” “1 Nation” and “1 Team” surrounding “USA” in the middle.
2016 USA Home Kit
The new home jersey displays U.S. Soccer’s new crest on a traditional white body with blue sleeves. A red stripe runs the length of the shirt and shorts, revealing flashes of white.
2016 USA Away Kit
The away jersey will feature a black body, complemented with a blue sleeve on the right and a red sleeve on the left. Similar to the home kits, a black stripe runs down the side of the shirt and shorts, showing off flashes of blue on the left side and red on the right side.
Both kits will introduce a new sock system that includes NikeGRIP socks paired with new sleeves that further protect ankles and other high-risk areas on the lower leg.
