England Home & Away Kits Revealed

England football home kitBoth the home & away kits for England were revealed by Nike today, and they both boast very classic designs like most of the new World Cup kits revealed by Nike this year. The Nike Football Creative Director Martin Lotti commented on the inspiration for the white home kits:

“Two references really stood out during the design process for the home kit – that stunning all-white kit England wore in Mexico in 1970 and the idea of the armour of English Knights. You can see subtle references to the armour in the pinstripe, which carries a hint of shine, and in the white satin tape on the shoulders. We wanted to add some small detail that echoed the glow of the armour worn by St. George.”

The away jersey also utilizes a special design in red pinstripe that is “subtly infused with a graphic interpretation of St. George’s cross on the front. The St. George’s cross, representing the English patron saint, is an optical illusion and cannot be seen up close, coming into focus only from a distance.”
