As the second most successful team in the world, having won the World Cup in 1934, 1938, 1982 and 2006, the Azzurri kit boasts a truly unique legacy. The instantly recognisable azure blue of the shirt unites Italians all over the world, thanks to their shared love of the beautiful game. For Italians the Azzurri blue is much more than just a colour and the Gli Azzurri kit represents so much more than football.
The latest Italy Home Shirt is a limited edition that boasts 4 stars, an official FIGC badge, and vintage styling. The slim fit shirt has a 3D graphic embossed print with a welded patch pocket and the 4-way stretch underarm panel, cuffs, and back mesh enhance freedom of movement, fashioned after on-pitch player jerseys. The flat knit rib collar with contrast tipping and tonal bottomless placket add a bit of retro styling to this modern, fast-forward design.
To coincide with the launch, PUMA Football stars Giorgio Chiellini and Gianluigi Buffon filmed a short video to celebrate the kit, which will make its debut tomorrow against fellow PUMA side Uruguay in what is sure to be an awesome 90 minutes of football.
It’s been an exciting time at PUMA lately following last week’s launch of 10 African kits, as well as the recent unveiling of the PowerCat 1.12s and Yaya Touré, Falcão, Sergio Agüero, Cesc Fàbregas and Thierry Henry all committing their future to PUMA.
