A KIT INSPIRED BY THE VICTORIES OF THE GREAT INTER TEAMS OF THE 1960S
The 2011/2012 Away Jersey – made from innovative recycled polyester – which rounds out Nike’s exclusive collection for FC International was introduced today in Beijing, on the eve of the Supercoppa Tim final. The kit is inspired by the historic Inter jersey worn during the victorious 1964-65 season: a season full of memorable wins including the national championship, the first Champions Cup and the first Intercontinental Cup of the team’s glorious history.
The body of the jersey is white with a black and blue diagonal band and two blue stripes on the sides. The diagonal band actually first appeared on an Inter kit in the 1950s; however, in the minds of the fans, it is identified with the Club’s extraordinary successes of the 1960s.
The away jersey unites the Club’s tradition with a particularly elegant, classic men’s clothing line. Even the jersey’s expert tailoring harkens back to that of the original: black fabric collar with blue along the lower edge, two buttons at the neck, drop seam at the shoulder, and a deep cuff at the sleeve. “Inter” is written under the collar on the back of the jersey: inside the collar – a red cross on a white background – the symbol of the city of Milan.
The matching shorts are white with a blue stripe up the sides; the socks are all white with “Inter” written on the back of each calf.
The new kit (jersey and shorts) is 100% made from Nike’s innovative recycled polyester: each one obtained from 14 plastic bottles. Also, thanks to the Nike Dri-FIT fabric, the kit plays an active role in regulating the athlete’s body temperature on the field. The jersey features a new, more pronounced streamlined fit, with 17% more elasticity than the previous jersey. In addition to game wear, this year the training and lifestyle collection has been unveiled for the first time.
Made with hi-tech fabrics, the Training line is designed for improved training in almost any weather condition. The collection is rounded out by the Express line of lifestyle clothing; this line is dedicated to supporters who, in their free time, want to show off their passion for the black and blue with style and elegance.
