Scotland 2012/13 adidas Away Kit
The Scottish Football Association has unveiled the new Scotland adidas 2012/13 away kit. Its launch follows that of the Scots’ 2011/13 home uniform (now available at World Soccer Shop) in October.
According to the SFA website: The traditional Scottish colours remain strongly represented throughout the new away kit with an array of design innovations. This keeps the strong national identity and brings a modern look and feel to the kit, with subtle hints of the national heritage throughout.
The crest pays homage to the round badge used on the 1974 shirt worn at the World Cup in West Germany. This variation (as seen on the recently released new home kit) of an iconic emblem of Scottish folklore features a woven badge with the embroidery applied with satin stitching. It features the Royal Standard (aka the Lion Rampant of Scotland) and marks the founding of the Scottish FA in 1873.
Bespoke imprint on the chest
The new white kit is subtly modernised with the reflective two tone use of the shadowed stripe and the incorporated fleur de lys that is repeated across the front panel. The hallmark adidas three stripes has been proudly retained and adds detail through the sleeve with the navy subtly incorporated into the white kit.
The V-neck collar is blocked with traditional navy with a subtle addition of yellow trim to add flair to the shirt.
Shorts and socks
Navy shorts, which incorporate ClimaCoolâ„¢ technology, feature a tie chord and Scottish FA crest. The traditional colour rotation for the kit is completed with a two tone coloured sock, which comprises of the predominantly deep Scottish navy while featuring a white cuff detailed with the adidas 3-strips.
The socks feature the word ‘ALBA’ – the Gaelic word for Scotland – and a new construction features materials that add comfort to the foot-bed and provide Achilles support.
