Football Shirts > Barcelona Launch Nike 2012/13 Home & Away Replica

Nike have risked the wrath of the ''Les Culés'' in what could be one of Barcelona's most dramatic home kit re-designs. Gone are the solid renowned stripes of La Blaugrana. In its place, Nike have combined the iconic red & blue colours of the Catalan club to create a very different look that's sure to get fans talking!

Inspired by Barcelona's world-renowned philosophy of fusing home-grown talent (the cantera) with the world's finest players, the new 12/13 Nike Barcelona Home Kit sees the famous blue and red stripes fused together to give the shirt a bold new look.




The red crew neck collar gives the shirt a classic but modern feel, whilst the graphic on the outer neck is the Catalan Senyera flag. The blue on the shirt is a darker blue than seasons gone by. The blue shorts have a red stripe on the side and ‘Barca’ on the back waistband.


 The blue socks have Barça in yellow in the same font as the shirt. The socks also offer a new and innovative design featuring an updated cotton footbed offering additional support and comfort.   

The new 2012/13 Barcelona Away Kit is an explosion of bright colour to celebrate the club’s effervescent style of play. The new shirt fuses orange into yellow on the body paying homage to the city’s mixture of culture, art, style and architecture. 




The shirt has an orange crew neck ribbed collar with the famous Blaugrana detail on the back of the neck and orange sleeves. The outer back detail on the shirt is Catalan’s Senyera flag, whilst the inner neck graphic reads, ‘Més que un club’ (More than a club).




The font used on the kit is inspired by Catalan architecture. The yellow shorts have the Blaugrana detail along the side seam and ‘Barca’ on the back of the waistband. The yellow socks also have the Blaugrana detail on the top and the ‘Barca’ detail on the back.





The kits have bonded re-enforced t-bar junctions that support critical seams on the shirt and shorts and inner welded seams with a flat finish construction to improve comfort and performance. Temperature regulation is helped by ventilation zones, consisting of a series of tiny laser cut holes from the under arms to the waistband, allowing air to circulate to keep players comfortable.





Whilst the kits combine modern sport and youth style to give the club an iconic new look, Nike’s innovation provides our most technologically advanced kits to aid athlete comfort and performance. The kits are made from Nike’s ground-breaking recycled polyester, making them Nike’s most environmentally friendly kit ever produced 

Are Nike right to make such a dramatic change to one of club football's most iconic football shirts? Let us know what you think of Barcelona's new home and away designs! Join the conversation online, on Twitter and on Facebook.

I like the away kit and the home kit is interesting, but ugly though, just like last seasons seemed to be at first, although that was better than that horrible one with the yellow at the bottom of the sleeves.

I think the traditional stripes we associate Barcelona with should have been kept in the home shirt. However I do like the away strip and think it's a fresh approach from Nike in order to catch the eyes of viewers when Barcelona wear the shirt and play their sleek football that we admire them for.

This kit looks nice in the official authentic version with the proper little bubbles graduating out, but i bet the replica will do the effect really cheaply and just look tacky...

I like the away kit better than the home kit. I wasn't a particular  fan of the new kits, but as soon as I see Messi, David Villa, Xavi, Inestia, Puyol, Dani Alves, and Sanchez in them I probably will learn to like them. After all Nike is taking a risk in radically changing the kits.

I dont mean for all my comments on here to be negative, but this doesn't really give me much choice. The gradient is just not Barca. Its passable on the away kit cause FCB have had some very dodgy away kits recently but not on the home. Mes que un no thanks :(

It comes as no surprise to learn Manchester United and Real Madrid top global shirt sales. But it's interesting to see, unlike popular beliefs, that teams do not sell millions of jerseys each year at least not when it comes to official merchandise
