The new look Inter Milan (in terms of kits and squad) have followed Sunday’s Italian Serie A 7-0 demolition of Sassuolo with the release of a light blue 2014/15 third kit from Nike.
According to Nike: This season, Internazionale will play in a new third kit that showcases their traditional colors with a bold and modern appearance.
Inter’s famous blue gets a new twist in the third kit, which includes two tones of the hue. The shirt, shorts and socks all feature blue on the front with a darker shade of the same color on the back.
The two tones are divided by a black stripe — honoring one of Inter’s iconic home colors — that stretches along both sides of the kit from the collar, along both shoulders, down each side of the shirt and shorts, and right down to the socks.
The stripes will accentuate the players’ speed when they’re in motion.
“The half-and-half appearance is a traditional football design, but we added a new twist,” said Martin Lotti, Creative Director of Nike Football. “We wanted to utilize vibrant color so the kits look brighter at night against the grass and beneath floodlights. Under a dark sky, the kits will look electric, as if powered by batteries, and will provide a flash of color on the pitch.”
The shirt also boasts a classic design with a sophisticated polo neck collar and a three-button placket in the darker tone of blue. A black pennant tab tucked inside the back of the neck reveals the proud message, “Milano E’ Solo Inter” (Milan is only Inter).
