FC INTERNAZIONALE HOME AND AWAY KITS 2016-17
Nike Football reveals the new FC Internazionale Home and Away Kits featuring Dri-FIT technology.
THE HOME KIT
Inter’s new home kit updates the club’s iconic blue and and black stripes with yellow detailing and a tonal linear graphic. The sleeves and shoulders contrast in black. As an ode to club pride, the modern crew-neck collar features ‘Inter’ knitted on the inside.
THE AWAY KIT
For 2016/17, the Inter away shirt remains white, but transfers the traditional horizontal blue and black chest band to the shirt sleeves.
A further ode to club pride features on the modern v-neck collar where ‘Inter’ on the knitted on the inside of a blue band. The sides of the kit have a black stripe that runs the length of the shirt and shorts. Expanding when the player is in motion, the stripe maximizes ventilation and reveals a subtle underlying blue.
Blue socks, with a black linear graphic on the calf, showcase the club’s primary color and accentuate speed.
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. 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.
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 and helping regulate players’ temperatures.
The shirt is crafted using mesh fabric that makes up the full front and back panels of the shirt, increasing airflow and facilitating enhanced movement.
