United States 2018 Nike Home Away Kit
The stripes on the new United States 2018 home kit by shift from red to blue. The diagonal flow of the blue forms an abstract sash, a subtle ode to a regular design element in U.S. kits through the ages. This modern interpretation of the American Flag represents speed.
The horizontal stripe of the home shirt is from left to right from left to right from red to blue. The unique design of the blue part constitutes an abstract oblique lace effect. This is a tribute to the American team’s various forms of jerseys in recent years, which is a present interpretation of the speed and vitality of the American flag.
While the inspiration of the home kit is grounded, the United States 2018 away kit reflects excitement in embracing the unknown through gesture to space travel (most notable in the inner pride badge) and sleek, negative shaping of the stripes.
The typography is inspired by muscle car emblems and features crisp racing stripes and an inset star pattern.
