English Premier League side Everton Football Club signed a three-year deal with Nike in March after wearing kits from the likes of le coq sportif, Umbro and PUMA over the last decade. The Toffees’ have now officially launched the Everton FC 2012/13 Nike home kit.
According to Nike:The stylish Royal Blue jersey is the Club’s first ever home kit to feature the famous Nike Swoosh, after the global sportswear giant became Everton’s technical partner for next term.
The classic shirt features broad white cuffs and a white v-neck trim, and is made from Nike Dri-Fit fabric which is lightweight and manages perspiration, keeping players dry and comfortable for 90 minutes and beyond.
The kit is also part of Nike’s Considered Design programme aimed at reducing environmental impact, and consists of 100% recycled material.
Supporters can see the Royal Blue home strip in action for the first time this Saturday for the Blues’ pre-season friendly against Morecambe.
The striking 2012/13 black away strip with yellow detail was launched last month as the first offering from Nike and has already proved popular with supporters.
