Kuala Lumpur, 11 November 2015 – adidas presents the new Russian national football team home kit that demonstrates loyalty to traditional values.
The design of the kit is inspired by the idea of conflicting forces that exist inside everyone. These are between elegance and valour, intuition and pragmatism, faithfulness to the past and willingness to go forward. This season, adidas will keep the balance between the two forces which guarantees victory in the world of sports.
The new home kit pays tribute to Russian traditions and history designed in a collegiate burgundy colour. Eagle-shaped ornaments are spread all over the jersey, designed with a V-neck collar and traditional three stripes down the shoulders, as well as on the sides.
On the left side of the jersey bares the Russian crest, while on the other side features adidas logo made in contrasting golden tone – which relates to Russia’s rich architectural legacy.
The image of an eagle plays a significant role in the design of the kit. It is not only a symbol of Russia’s cultural and historical continuity; it represents Russian values such as courage, togetherness and liberty. The home kit features an athletic fit and shortened sleeves contributing to the modern look, thereby providing greater comfort for players to focus on the game.
The home kit features a pre-match T-shirt created especially for warm-ups. Its design correlates with the pattern of the Authentic jersey. Along with the jersey, the kit comes with white coloured socks fortifying compression and ankle protection.
For better ventilation, the new uniform is made of light fabric without sacrificing movement and comfort. The jersey weighs 90g, which is 10% less than the one in the previous season.
The Replica jerseys feature the Climacool™ ventilation technology designed to keep the body cool and dry through airy holes, breathable materials, fabrics and special stitching.
