The U.S. men’s and women’s national teams are preparing for a busy summer with the 2016 Copa America Centenario and the 2016 Rio Olympics on the schedule. The run of games will have the 2016 USA home and away jerseys the center of attention for fans and Soccer365 went In The Studio to take a look at what makes these special.
The official home and away jerseys is ubiquitous at tailgates and in the stands during games as well as being included in the everyday wardrobe for fans looking to show their passion for their team while making a fashion statement.
Admittedly the 2016 USA home and Away jerseys has not been immediately embraced by fans but the jerseys include some notable firsts which will make them classics. And a jersey that all fans will want to have in their collection!
This year’s jerseys will be the first to include the new US Soccer Federation badge. The new badge is modern and cleaner than the previous one and looks to be more a part of the jersey rather than on the jersey.
US Soccer’s technical partner, Nike, is always innovating and introduced the Nike Aeroswift fabric this year. The US national team jerseys, along with those of England, Brazil, France, and Portugal, were the first to feature this new technology.
The Aeroswift technology allows for esthetic features to be included on the jersey like the ‘1 Nation’ and ‘1 Team’ on the inside of the sleeve cuffs and the ‘USA’ on the back of the collar as well as functional features such as the double knit to provide structure where needed and vent holes to allow breathability.
The complete package makes the jerseys 100% authentic and ready to Hit the Street. The Red, White, and Blue is a great look whether out for an afternoon beer, running around town, or relaxing.
