The founding story of Rome goes that brothers Romulus and Remus were raised by a she-wolf. That creature, a vital symbol for Roma, inspired the Giallorossi’s 2018/19 Nike change kit. “This kit is quite simply a color story inspired by the wolf,” explains Pete Hoppins, Nike Football Apparel Senior Design Director.

“A classy wolf grey kit fits well with the mythology surrounding the city and how the club places great value on this important symbol.”

The lupetto (little wolf), another cherished wolf symbol, returns for the 2018/19 season as well. The logo, which has appeared periodically on Roma kits over the years — first used in 1978 and last employed in 2016 — is back to garnish this wolf-theme kit as a subtle feature on the rear of the neck via a strip of taping.

“The lupetto is iconic for the club,” adds Hoppins. “Here, we have used it as an outer pride feature.”
