Nike has landed the task of dressing up the French National Team (which flopped at last year’s World Cup). The French Federation revealed the partnership yesterday, and the new uniforms will debut on Feb. 9, 2011, when the French teams plays Brazil.
The new uniforms rely (naturally) on the French national colors, with a blue shirt, white shorts and red stockings. It’s simple, smart and functional.
The uniforms are made of 96% recycled polyester, the remaining 4% of organic cotton.
