Perennial English Premier League title contenders Manchester United have unveiled their Nike 2012/13 away kit. It will be available at the World Soccer Shop, and Kitbag Manchester United stores along with the club’s recently released 12/13 home kit.
According to a Nike press release on the new Red Devils’ alternate uniform:
Nike today unveiled the new Manchester United Away kit for the 2012-13 season at an event held at The Castle in Cape Town during the Club’s tour of the country.
Manchester United’s Away kit for the 2012-13 season will see the side step out in a white shirt, black shorts, and white and black socks; colours that have long been used for the club’s second kit.
The stand out feature on the new shirt is the Henley Crew collar with a red detail and a button closure; this style of course being part of the heritage of the club but also a nod to the current youth style in Manchester. The shirt also has a black monochromatic crest to compliment the design.
The shirt’s outer back neck graphic features the club’s iconic devil, as it is on the shorts. The shorts are a black tonal Gingham print in line with the new home shirt design.
The socks are white with a black top and again, the graphic of the club’s devil stands proud. The socks also offer a new and innovative design featuring an updated cotton footbed offering the support and comfort enjoyed by professionals to all that wear them.
Whilst the kit combines modern sport and youth style to give the club an iconic new look, Nike’s innovation gives the team our most technologically advanced kit to aid athlete comfort and performance.
