Football Shirts > France Away Replica 2012-13 - Nike football shirt

The FFF and Nike have unveiled the new France Away Kit to be worn at Euro 2012, and as you'd expect it's a celebration of French style and elegance in another environmentally friendly football kit from Nike. Take a look at our full reveal with exclusive photography of the new shirt...

Taking visual keys from the previous incarnation, the new France away football shirt represents the French natural style and elegance by featuring iconic details and designs from fashion.

The new away shirt has a classic white body with seven thin obsidian blue stripes on the cuff of each sleeve to represent the iconic French design of the mariniere. The shirt’s constructed collar also seeks to echo French style with a long placket and a bonded tape around the edge of the collars.

In line with Nike’s commitment to superior athletic performance and lower environmental impact, the fabric of the new kit’s shorts is made with 100% recycled polyester, while the fabric of the shirts is made with at least 96% recycled polyester. Each kit is made using an average of 13 recycled plastic bottles.

The fabric is also up to 23% lighter than the version four years ago. Embedded with Nike Dri-FIT technology, the kits help to regulate players temperatures on the pitch by removing sweat from the body to keep them dry and cool faster than ever before.

Laser-cut ventilation on the shirt promotes localised cooling where athletes need it most to remain focused on the game. These ventilation holes are cut into the sides of the shirt, and reinforced with a material strip which maintains the ventilation opening throughout the course of the game. 

A new double knit structure and yarns also makes this kit 20% stronger, and with natural cotton added to the weave, there is a soft and comfortable fit and feel to the new France Away soccer jersey 2012.

For that unique Nike touch, on the inside of the neck is the message ‘Nos differences nous unissent’ (Our differences unite us), which proudly celebrates modern day multi- cultural France and their diverse population.

The away shorts are white with a tonal print of the mariniere in a panel on each side, and the away socks, now with improved cushioning for greater comfort, movement and protection, are also white.

France will wear their new match attire when they travel to Germany for an International friendly on 29th February, so let us know what do you think of the new look? Share your thoughts on the 2012/13 Nike France away shirts online, on Twitter and on Facebook.

i think Malouda is not good enough anymore for the national team, but Sakho and M'vila are beasts. Same jersey like the old one but now wihout the seaman stripes!

And as mentioned - looks just like the England kit. And the England Rugby kits!

this is alright but i preffered the last one, lets hope benzema isnt left behind like last time, and the euros are far more entertaining than the most boring world cup (2010) in history
