If World Cup kits are a competition – then Nigeria & Nike have thrown down a flaming hot entry to take the whole comp out in one foul swoop. Today, at their global launch event, Nike Football has revealed the new threads which Nigeria will be wearing at this year’s upcoming World Cup in Russia.
Whilst the home World Cup kit will be the plain, clean dark green shirt; Nike got real funky on the away kit & other elements in the collection.
“With Nigeria, we wanted to tap into the attitude of the nation,” notes Dan Farron, Nike Football Design Director. “We built this kit and collection based on the players’ full identities. We started to see trends in attitude and energy connecting the athletes to music, fashion and more. They are part of a resoundingly cool culture.”
But wait – there’s bucket hats 😱😱😱
