Now well-funded French Ligue 1 club Paris Saint-Germain has been in the international soccer headlines over the past few weeks for signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Thiago Silva and Ezequiel Lavezzi.
Current on tour in the USA, PSG has followed the May release of its new home kit with that of its much-anticipated Nike 2012/13 away kit. Both will be available at World Soccer Shop and the Nike Store.
According to Nike: Paris St-Germain will play in a new red away kit for season 2012 — 13; inspired by the colours of the famous club crest. The shirt sees a striped red tone pattern in the body, with a band of navy blue across the bottom of the shirt and on the sleeves. And both the shorts and socks are red to give the club a bold red look for the new season.
Whilst the kit combines modern sport and youth style to give the club an iconic look, Nike’s innovation gives the team our most technologically advanced kit to aid athlete comfort and performance.
