Watch out, world. Gli Azzurri are suited up in their latest kit, made for this summer's competition in Brasil. It's a bolder evolution of past shirts: fluorescent blue piping and colored cuffs provide a fresh take on the team's signature hue as well as the national flag of Italy. The shirt will unify the team (and its fans) as they prepare for their 5th star pursuit the following year.
The shirt's design considers heritage as well as the players' physical qualities. The official team shirt is made of recycled polyester and Cocona (an activated carbon made from coconut shells) to provide a superior level of comfort and moisture management. The official team replica shirt is made of 100% recycled polyester. Both the official shirt and replica shirt are engineered for embracing mates and hoisting trophies as needed.
If you're a fan, we recommend a few things… Mark your calendars for April 1st, which is when the replica shirts hit stores. Add a few push-ups to your daily routine to get those arms in shape. And start the official countdown to June's competition in Brasil. (Which officially kicks off the unofficial countdown to 2014…)
