Though Arsenal may be without their Premier League leading scorer Robin van Persie this coming season, they will retain their sharp uniform style with the recently revealed Nike Arsenal Away Jersey for 2012/13. The design features prominent horizontal stripes in purple and black. Featuring Nike’s latest developments in replica soccer jerseys, this Arsenal kit is loaded with top-flight performance in mind.
Let’s take a quick look back at some of our favorite Arsenal Away kits from years past. Most of the Away kits have had a blue or yellow theme, with several deviations that didn’t stick too long.
All of Nike’s 2012/13 kits are made from up to 13 recycled plastic bottles (shorts sold separately) that was unveiled in the national team kits featured in this summer’s EURO 2012 and London Olympic tournaments. The result is a lighter weight, more breathable and stronger jersey material for optimal comfort.
The laser cut ventilation near the ribs offers even more enhanced cooling, in addition to Nike’s recycled Dri-FIT polyester fabric. This jersey will be worn by star Gunners players like Theo Walcott and up and comer, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. A further element for added style is the fold-up sleeve cuffs, with red underside.
Premium athletes and fans alike will love the reinforced construction. Nike built in the T-bar at the shoulder seam for reinforced seams. As always, the embroidered swoosh, now in White for sharp contrast, rests opposite the embroidered Gunners team crest. The reverse exterior of the collar shows the clubs initials AFC.
The new Arsenal Away Replica Jersey for 2012/13 will be available August 9th at soccerloco retail stores and soccerloco.com. Don’t miss this sweet piece of history before we run out.
