As the countdown to the World Cup reaches its final days, Adidas and Bosnia-Herzegovina’s National Team have finally unveiled the kits they will wear in Brazil this summer.
After much speculation late last year, this European national team broke ties with Italian sportswear manufacturer Legea to become the latest showcase nation under the Three-Stripe brand two months ago. For Bosnia-Herzegovina, this is their first World Cup finals appearance as an independent nation, once part of the former Yugoslavia, as they topped Group G on goal difference over fellow tournament finalists Greece in the qualifying stage.
The home kit is in blue with white and black trim. The jersey has a classical white and black v-neck collar, and the pattern is also applied on the shoulders and at the sleeve cuffs. There are hoops on the chest, made uniquely with small airholes. The three stripes on the sleeves are white. The shorts and socks are also blue, with the white and black trim returning on the hem of the shorts. The socks are a plain blue with white adidas three-stripes.
The white away kit has a different style altogether, with a round collar and thicker blue stripes on the sleeves than the home kit. There are also blue side panels that extend to the back of the jersey. The shorts and socks also have blue trim, leading to a clean and presentable look.
The first test for Bosnia-Herzegovina in Group F will be against Lionel Messi and Argentina on June 15th at the Maracana in Rio de Janiero. With Nigeria and Iran also in their group, the Dragons will have to rely on the striking firepower of superstars Edin Džeko and Vedad Ibišević to traverse through the nation’s first World Cup group stage challenge.
