long ago Nike release Thursday From the US men’s national team 2022 World Cup kits, and even before jerseys leaked Last month, some USMNT players got a glimpse and even design the threads they’ll be wearing in November – and Midfielder and fashion fan Weston McKinney, “Try to tell them.”
It was meant to be “their” Nike and US Soccer. players Tim Weah saidThey were “just as angry” as the fans are now. But by then, they had no recourse.
Nike officially revealed the T-shirts early Thursday morning, along with 11 more World Cup groupsincluding Portugal, France and Brazil. The American Home jersey is a relatively plain white design.
The outdoor set features a tie-dyed blue upper with royal blue shorts and socks.
A US soccer spokesperson told Yahoo Sports that the US soccer team will wear both groups, and then receive its new uniforms ahead of next summer’s Women’s World Cup.
Expressing its admiration for the American groups, Nike said in a press release that it was “inspired by the ideas and conversations with athletes.” But the three athletes they talked about — McKennie and Weah in Instagram comments, and Midfielder Younes Moussa in a phone call last month – She indicated that USMNT players are not satisfied.
Moses, who is probably the most positive character on the entire roster, was asked about them and said, “The combos – yeah, it’s the combos they made, you know. I’m sure they would look good on us on the court.”
When asked to rate it with a thumb up or down, he smiled and turned his thumb aside. He said, “In the middle.” “in the middle.”
HOW ARE USMNT COLLECTIONS DESIGNED
Nike, which has not yet responded to detailed questions from Yahoo Sports about how the kits will look, said in its release that “the white uniform design cues include bold stripes, an expanded center logo that resembles basketball jerseys, and a double switch on the sleeves reminiscent of those used on soccer jerseys.” American style, unique shoulder construction, cut-out sleeves, stitching, hockey jersey style, and timeless large lettering.”
The clothing company said the outerwear collection drew “inspiration from design techniques found throughout the American fashion and streetwear industry.” “The Nike design team used a unique ice-dye technique to create a vibrant, youthful print that brings the collection to life.”
However, fans have come out hard against both designs. Many have compared jerseys to warm-up jerseys or training jerseys. In comments on social media, they vowed in vain with Nike and US Soccer to rethink.
Notably, some American football officials like the dyed blue, and believe it will sell well as long as the team performs well. Former USMNT and USWNT shirts that were initially ridiculed, such as “Waldos” And the “Pops bomb“They are now celebrate. They often look much better in the field than in leaked photos, and are even better when numbers are added to relatively simple designs.
But designs are also not really in the hands of American football. Nike asks for and accepts input, but takes control of the majority of the process — in making USMNT kits and more.
