New Balance have followed last week’s release of the new FC Porto home kit with that of the ‘Dragões’ (Dragons) 2015/16 away uniform. The innovate brown strip will be on sale at World Soccer Shop, Subside Sports, Kitbag and UK Soccer Shop in the lead up to the next Liga NOS season.
According to New Balance: In recent years, FC Porto has been renowned for its striking and bold kit designs and this latest instalment from New Balance is no different. Introducing a brand new colour scheme, New Balance has ensured that FC Porto’s away kit will stand out next season in the Primeira Liga. Integrated into the eye catching cocoa brown colour are subtle stripes with striking blue trimming around the cuffs and across the chest to give the kit a highly fashionable look in keeping with the town’s style.
The kit not only pushes the boundaries of design innovation but technology innovation too. Cut and sew mesh panels at the front provide breathability, while New Balance NB DRY fabrication acts to keep the players dry whilst performing at the highest level. In addition to the outfield kit, the iconic yellow goalkeeper jersey returns.
Richard Wright, General Manager of New Balance Football, commented on the kit, “The FC Porto away kit has always made a bold statement and we have continued that with this latest kit design. With some of the latest New Balance kit technology, in the form of NB Flex and NB Dry, we have created a kit that not only looks good but performs at the highest level.”
