Just when you think Swedish Champions AIK couldn’t get any smoother, they go and drop another special limited edition jersey. The Nike AIK 1891 White Edition Jersey brings new meaning to the word appealing, defying the conventions of kit design and rewriting the rules for on-pitch style.

AIK is the club you wish your club was. We've said it before and we'll stand by it. Remember when St. Pauli were that envious bunch of mavericks paving their own way with a crisp image. Well, that's now AIK, and they actually win stuff too. This is the Swedish Champions we're talking about, and this is a kit worthy of launching on the back of the club’s first title success in nine years.


The club has embraced and pushed forward a football shirt movement that has grabbed the attention of the world game. They've produced some of the most in demand and most desirable kits of recent seasons, typified by the recent Black Edition release, which sold out in minutes. For their upcoming pre-season friendly with New York City FC, AIK continue that trend and then some with the release of the 1891 White Edition shirt.


The all-white shirt (a colour they wore to win their first tile in 1900) features the club crest, the 1891 established date in place of the club main sponsor, and kit manufacturer Nike’s Swoosh branding in resplendent raised gold detailing, lending it depth and added impact. As with the Black Edition, only 128 White/Gold limited edition shirts will be produced and presented in a premium white and gold box with gold trim.

The club is acutely aware of its responsibility to the local community and the importance of philanthropic causes. As such, AIK will donate proceeds from the sale of the special edition shirts to the local Stockholm project youth, through football, to work against segregation. Not just a pretty shirt, these guys.


The AIK 1891 White Edition Jersey is available exclusively at prodirectsoccer.com at 10am on February 13, but be quick, this will not hang about for long.
