Rarely does a Nike drop make its way through the French capital without being captured by photographer Alexpenfornis. Collaborating with Nike Football to showcase the new home and away uniforms of the French National team comes a selection of shots worthy of this summer's host nation. Magnifique.

Capturing the cobalt blue and white themes of the home jersey in tandem with the traditional “Tricolore” theme of the away, the shirts are a visual treat with their beauty lying in the details. Fierte” (Pride) and “Bleu” (Blue) adorn the inside cuffs while the inside of the body reveals a hexagonal graphic, which represents the multi-cultural composition of modern France and is framed by the message “Nos Differences Nous Unissent” (Our Differences Unite Us).

Some description

An advanced shirt of quite epic proportions, the new French outfits form part of Nike's summer line-up of Vapor kits featuring AeroSwift technology. Is this something really worth shouting about? Well, yeah. The kits are Nike's most advanced to date, employing a new, textured high-performance yarn that wicks sweat from the skin 20% faster than Nike’s most recent football kits, while also drying 25% faster. Additionally, both the shirt and shorts are constructed using a new knitting process that integrates single and double knit to enhance breathability, stretch and fit. Believe us when we say it's all very impressive.

The 2016 France Vapor kits are available beginning March 24 via the Nike Football App and at select retailers.
