Puma launched the new Azzurri shirt: Bred in Italy and made for Brasil. Puma tood the Italy shirt to a new level of design: bold and fresh.
It’s a bolder evolution of past shirts: fluorescent blue piping and colored cuffs provide a fresh take on the team’s signature hue as well as the national flag of Italy. The shirt will unify the team (and its fans) as they prepare for their 5th star pursuit the following year.
The shirt’s design considers heritage as well as the players’ physical qualities. The official team shirt is made of recycled polyester and Cocona (an activated carbon made from coconut shells) to provide a superior level of comfort and moisture management. The official team replica shirt is made of 100% recycled polyester.
Both the official shirt and replica shirt are engineered for embracing mates and hoisting trophies as needed.
The shirt will hit stores on April 1st, and start the official countdown to June’s competition in Brasil. (Which officially kicks off the unofficial countdown to 2014…). [Source: Puma.com]
