AS Roma 2017/18 3rd Kit by Nike

Suave AS Roma. Bringing a ‘dark velvet brown camo’ to the table, it’s with their 2017/18 third kit where Roma and Nike land in with an iconic pop. Strong shades as those Champions League nights bring back the mighty mid-week party.

Another kit that comes dressed in detail, it’s with a healthy dose of character that Nike have moved this shirt into more shaped spaces. The use of the tonal camo is obviously a strong talking point though the orange pops of colour provide plenty of energy for a shirt that will sparkle under the spotlight. Additional features include a subtle light brown dotting that forms the player numbers and below that “AS Roma” is knitted directly into the shirt.

Most recently, Nike have been pulling out some serious moves with their pre-match attire and with this kit, it shifts more life into the shirts that will land on the pitch for those oh so important 90 minutes. Dressed to thrill too, they come laden with the latest Nike innovations. As per Roma’s 2017-18 home and away match collections, “the most advanced football apparel technology” is what the kits are made of in the shape of Nike AeroSwift which, with this instalment is employed for the club’s first ever Nike third kit.

The AeroSwift design process creates a lightweight product and facilitates performance at the highest level. The resulting kits are 10% lighter and dry 25% faster than previous Nike kits, with 50% more stretch.

Every part of the kit has been fine-tuned for the players to operate at top speed, with geometric knit zones that enhance fit and comfort as well as ventilation stripes that expand when the player is in motion. Finishing it off from top to toe all elements are considered and special mention to the 17/18 socks that are woven with NikeGRIP technology that provides the ultimate foot-to-boot connection.

The new AS Roma third kit will be worn at home on September 16 and it is on sale from September 12. Suit up at
