MILAN - Inter's new Home and Away kits for the 2016/17 season reflect both the passion of our fans around the world and the history and tradition of our club.
On the Home shirt, the Nerazzurri’s iconic black and blue stripes now have a new energy, boasting a subtle tonal linear graphic to represent the speed and vibrancy of the Inter players.
The sleeves and shoulders are a contrasting black to give the kit an intimidating aesthetic and emphasise the power of the shoulders.
The Home shirt also features a modern crew-neck collar with ‘Inter’ on the back in yellow.
The sides of the kit have a black stripe that runs the length of the shirt and black shorts, which expands when the player is in motion to provide greater ventilation and reveal bold flashes of blue underneath.
For the first time ever Inter will wear vibrant yellow home socks with a black linear graphic on the calf, and contrasting with the shirt and socks they brilliantly highlight the most dynamic part of a footballer’s body, the lower legs, to accentuate speed.
All the details are in yellow: Pirelli in the centre on the front of the shirt, Driver on the back below the number, the swooshes on the shirt, shorts and socks, and the numbers and players' names.
The Away shirt remains white, but the iconic horizontal black and blue chest band has been transferred to the sleeves.
In another modern twist the black half of the band now features thin blue pinstripes, while the blue half has thin black pinstripes.
The sleeves and shoulders are white, but in a separate panel to emphasise the power of the shoulders.
The Away shirt also boasts a modern v-neck collar with a tonal band on the back, and ‘Inter’ on the back neck rib.
The sides of the kit have a black stripe that runs the length of the shirt and matching white shorts, which expands when the player is in motion to provide greater ventilation and reveal bold flashes of blue underneath.
The new Away socks are blue with a black linear graphic on the calf, and contrasting with the shirt and socks they brilliantly highlight the most dynamic part of the footballer’s body, the lower legs, to accentuate speed, and provide a final flourish of colour.
While this new kit acts as a proud symbol of the club, it has also been designed to allow players to be fast, and perform at their absolute best, boasting the latest Nike innovations in performance technology, fabric construction and moisture management.
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.
Commitment to Sustainability
Nike employs sustainable innovation for its football kits with 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. For more information, visit nikebetterworld.com.
