MILAN – Inter’s new Home kit draws a lot of inspiration from the city of Milan and exploits Dri-FIT technology. The classic black-blue design has been revised with a modern look: the vertical stripes on the chest, have different widths and strongly recall the city’s new architecture. Among the details linked to the Club’s history is the inscription “Nerazzurri” in white on the inside of the collar.
The shorts are black with the Inter logo on the front on the right and a white swoosh on the left. The kit is completed by the black socks provided with Nike Grip technology, feature the inscription “Inter” on the front and horizontal blue stripes on the calf.
The players will be wearing the new Home kit on Sunday 28 May, at the last match of the Italian championship. The new Home kit will be on sale from today on nike.com, store.inter.it and at selected retailers.
NIKE DRI-FIT TECHNOLOGY
Nike Dri-FIT technology draws sweat away from the body and allows players to remain cooler and more comfortable throughout the match.
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 in cotton and recycled polyester. As well as eliminating odours, this creates a feeling of increased softness and more attractive general appearance.
Nike employs sustainable innovation for its football kits, delivering unrivalled performance and lower environmental impact.
Every part of the kit – shirt, shorts and socks – is made from recycled polyester fabric, which is obtained from recycled plastic bottles melted down to produce a fine yarn suitable for turning into fabric. Each kit is made using approximately 18 recycled plastic bottles. Since 2010, Nike has diverted more than two billion plastic bottles from landfills into recycled polyester, enough to cover about 3,500 football pitches.
Through its use of recycled polyester, Nike has reduced energy consumption through its production cycle by 30% in comparison with standard polyester.
