Nike and Brazil player Neymar have unveiled the 2013 Brazil home kit. The new look was debuted at the “Batalha das Quadras” (“Battle of the Court”), which is a competition that invites young players to play small-sided soccer on a variety of surfaces.
The latest kit features the classic Brazilian colors, but has been updated with performance and style innovations. Often referred to as “the people’s jersey”, the Brazil kit is treated much like a national flag, symbolic of the entire nation. It’s been tweaked with laser venting, bonded seams, and hemline vents to allow for a more breathable, lightweight uniform during action. Dri-Fit technology is also at play, offering moisture wicking and are 23% lighter (with a 20% stronger knit structure) than previous Nike kits.
You’ll be able to see the kit in action when Brazil faces off against England on February 6. If you’re interested in picking up the kit for yourself, it releases today at Nike Store.
