French Ligue 1 powerhouse Paris Saint-Germain have unveiled their 2016/17 Nike away kit ahead of Wednesday’s friendly against Real Madrid at Ohio Stadium.
The new Paris Saint-Germain away kit is predominantly red, with complementary white and blue details that, collectively, represent the French national flag, the Tricolore, and Paris Saint-Germain’s own trademark hues.
The advanced performance technology in the kit is visible on the chest, where engineered knit zones create a geometric pattern that enhances fit with smaller mesh shapes at the bottom of the graphic. The sleeves and the upper back have been infused with black to produce a darker red.
Odes to PSG’s club pride appear on the interior and exterior of the 16/17 Nike alternateshirt. “Paris” is knit into the back collar, while “Grandeur” and ““Passion” adorn the inside right and left cuffs, respectively. These key club values are underscored by the club’s colors: blue represents grandeur while red embodies passion.
The sides of the kit have a blue stripe that runs the length of the shirt and matching red shorts. Expanding with then player is in motion, the stripe maximizes ventilation and reveals a subtle flash of underlying white. Red socks, with a blue linear graphic on the calf, accentuate speed.
