Nike has unveiled the new kits for some of the leading football nations in the world, including five of the countries – Croatia, France, Netherlands, Poland and Portugal - that will take to the field in European football’s biggest national tournament this summer.

As part of Nike’s ‘uniform of sport’, each federation has its own country-specific Nike Pro Combat base layer, to provide added protection and comfort for players in today’s more physical and technical game.

Each kit is complimented with a full training collection, and lifestyle clothing for fans to show their support off the pitch.

In line with Nike’s commitment to combining athletic performance with lower environmental impact, fabric for the new kit’s shorts is made with 100% recycled polyester, while the shirt fabric is made with a minimum 96% recycled polyester. Each kit is made using an average of 13 recycled plastic bottles.

The kits are constructed using Nike Dri-FIT technology to wick moisture and are made out of 23 percent lighter fabric with 20 percent stronger knit structure than Nike’s previous kits. The shirts also feature laser-cut ventilation holes to promote localized cooling, to help regulate player temperatures during a match.

The visual design of each federation kit is developed around key insights inspired by the national identity and the distinctive football culture of every nation. Rich detailing throughout the jersey and shorts inspires the history and heritage of each team.

NIKE PRO COMBAT

Federation-specific baselayer options include the Nike Pro Combat Hypercool 2.0 top, with sweat-wicking fabric to help keep players cool and comfortable, while in colder weather the Thermal Mock top will keep them warm with its turtle neck and brushed inner surface reflecting heat back to the body without trapping moisture.

Nike Pro Combat Hyperstrong compression men's slider shorts also provide added protection for players. Featuring a padded waist and thigh protection so players can slide tackle with confidence, while mesh fabric is placed in the high heat zones for breathability. There is also a padded version of the shorts with added foam to help absorb impact and protect from injury.

TRAINING AND LIFESTYLE COLLECTION

To compliment the new match day kit, Nike has also launched an integrated range of training and lifestyle clothing.

On the training pitch players will benefit from an innovative range of apparel, with options designed to keep them comfortable whatever the weather conditions.

Fans can express their pride and support, with the launch of a new range of hoodies, tracksuit tops, T-shirts, sweatshirts, caps, jackets and rugby tops.

The range has been created for both the fan who wants to show their allegiance or for those who want to be more subtle, and comes in national colours, national symbols, with crafted elements, premium fabrics and elevated design.
