England Home and Away Football Kit for 2014 World Cup
Today, Nike released the new home and away kits for England’s 2014 World Cup voyage. The home kit is an elegant all white strip which looks minimalistic but is extremely tailored and personal when considered in full detail.
The strip has a pin strip pattern that emulates the ideas of St George and the knights’ chainmail armour. These details have a hint of shine and satin in order to glow like the armour. Similarly to the Brazil World Cup kit, the England kits feature the same technology designs such as the laser vents and Dri-Fit.
The away kit also displays fine, beautoful detail in its design. The red shirt has a unique neck collar which looks great with the pin strip design. The red socks and top reflect the iconic 1966 kit which England wore when they won their only World Cup.
I really like both kits, i feel that the all white kit is becoming an iconic design for England’s home kit and love the amount of detail Nike have gone in to, in order to make it special and personal. I always love the red kit and am happy that it has been reurned. For too long England’s kits have incorporated blue instead of red which is just wrong. As great as these new designs are and as much as I am looking forward to England doing well this summer in them, I wouldn’t spend £90 on it
