Les Rouge et Bleu, or The Red and Blues, have traded in their classic colors for an all-yellow away kit. The new style for the Paris Saint-Germain football club, which was designed by Nike, celebrates the legacy of the team’s Brazilian players. It’s an honorable gesture towards current team members Thiago Silva, Marguinhos, Lucas and Maxwell. But it’s also a nod to players of the past, such as the incomparable Ronaldinho, and the care-free style of play they brought to the Parisian football club.
Like Nike’s other [away] kits that have been unveiled this week, PSG’s includes Aeoroswift technology and details that reflect the popular French team’s heritage. The away kit collar is decorated in red, white and navy blue, plus “Paris” is knitted onto the back of the jersey. In addition, “Grandeur” and “Passion” are stitched onto the cuff of the sleeve. There are also two navy blue vertical stripes that go down the side of the shirt and continue on the shorts. Yellow socks — containing Nike’s Grip technology — with the Swoosh and “Paris” written on them round out the kit. Look for the Paris Saint-Germain Away kit starting July 1 at Nike.com.
