With the Confederations Cup to come next year, adidas and Russia have released this bright retro-inspired jersey for 2017. The Confederations Cup is seen as a dress rehearsal for the World Cup the following year, as the champions of each confederation and the host converge in this competition. Russia simply looks well-dressed for the occasion.
Whereas the last few Russian national team jerseys used dark red, this latest jersey has a brighter scarlet shade base. The classic crew neck collar with matching adidas shoulder stripes are in a clean white.
Sleeve cuffs on the arms are in a matching white, and leaves a lasting vintage look with the design.
A classic Soviet Union jersey from the 1980s serves as inspiration for the new Russian jersey. A zigzag design with an eroded gradient effect on the body gives a striking visual. Russia’s coat of arms is sown on at the chest of the jersey.
The back of the jersey is a solid scarlet red. The shorts and socks for the full kit are in matching scarlet red with white details.
The 2017 adidas Russia home jersey will be available soon at World Soccer Shop.
