Portland, Ore., June 1, 2018 – adidas Soccer has today released a lifestyle version of the 2018 FIFA World Cup home kit for Germany, crafted from the brand’s innovative Primeknit material. The kit follows the same design inspiration as the performance jersey and is a modern interpretation of one of the country’s most famous jerseys worldwide, the iconic 1990 shirt.
Available now at select retailers, the jersey will be available on adidas.com
The shirt builds on this classic design with an improved and reworked performance silhouette featuring dropped shoulder cut lines. The new lifestyle version is constructed using Primeknit material – crucial for comfort, fit and feel – and the words “Die Mannschaft” appear on the reverse of the neck, with a heat applied DFC crest and adidas logo.
Using a completely new manufacturing method for soccer jerseys, the name and numbering is fully engineered and knitted into the jersey, resulting in no extra trims and a unique new look. The Primeknit material features several different textures, including a mesh structure around the name and numbering, as well as on the upper back for ventilation and moisture management.
There are a limited number of the jerseys available, each one has its number on the bottom right signifying its run number.
