The Nike FC collection has grown to become one of the most popular soccer leisure wear collections. The collection lived in the shadows for years and was formally introduced to the world in 2014 to celebrate 20 years of the game. Nike F.C. celebrates players who are ‘willing to put it all on the line’ for their team
FC N98 AOP GFX Track Jacket is an updated design of the classic N98 jacket. The black jacket has a subtle marbled pattern but don’t be fooled by some images (including the one on World Soccer Shop) that make this look like a white jacket.
The full zip jacket has a low profile collar, a 11/4” black detail down the side of the sleeve (similar to how tuxedo pants have a highlighted side seam, classic), and black ribbed waist and wrists.
The side zip pockets are constructed to be seamless incorporated in the jacket and barely noticeable.
But what really sets this jacket apart is in the details. The embroidered Nike Swoosh and Nike FC badge make this stand out as first class. The added details of the Nike branded zipper, Nike F.C. side tag, and most importantly the tribute to the beautiful game on the inside of the collar with Nike Football printed in 11 different languages from Nike Football to Nike Soccer to Nike Calcio and more (some in languages we would have to look up).
The back of the jersey completes the look and makes its own statement with ‘NIKE F.C.’ printed across the shoulders.
The Nike FC N98 AOP GFX Track Jacket is available at World Soccer Shop (and don’t be fooled by the image. Item #72336.BW is this jacket) and other fine soccer retailers.
