After a heartbreaking end to last season, the Red Devils are set out to dethrone their cross-town rivals in the coming season. With a historically inspired Home kit for 2012/13, we didn’t know what to expect for Manchester United‘s Away Kit.
Taking a look at some of their historical away kits, you can tell there is a theme of white tops, black shorts, with signs of red throughout, most recently in their 2010/11 Away kits, the first season with their current sponsor after dumping AIG for AON.
This jersey keeps that theme alive, but now with some cutting edge design elements and revolutionary technologies from Nike make this a jersey fit for the 12-time Premier League champions. We’re excited to watch the Red Devils seek revenge. With a star-studded lineup, you can bet Wayne Rooney, Patrice Evra, Chicharito, and company will be all-serious when they hit the pitch in these kits.
The standout feature of the new away kit is the Henley Crew collar with red detail and a button closure. Nike added slivers of red at the cuffs. Other than that, this jersey is all black on white. The Nike swoosh, Man United team crest and sponsor are all in black. The inside collar reads, Forged in Industry, Striving for Glory which we think is a fitting tagline honoring the history of the club and Manchester’s industrial roots.
As part of Nike’s latest replica jersey collection, this kit (shorts sold separately) is made from up to 13 recycled plastic bottles. The result is a lighter weight, stronger knit recycled polyester from Nike. Enhanced moisture management is offered not only through the hybrid material, but also through tiny laser-cut ventilation holes at the under-arms. Don’t forget the T-Bar reinforced seaming to increase durability for even the toughest fans and players.
