Previously the embodiment of unity, the French National Team disintegrated among petite accusations and infighting at last year’s FIFA World Cup in South Africa. In an effort to reinvigorate its spirit after such a public altercation, the Fédération FranÃ§aise de Football asked Nike to illuminate the pride and glory of the team. What Nike designer came with was a blue several shades darker, a symbolic cross between the Royal Blue of the French flag and the Marine Blue, which traditionally represented the republic. In Nike’s trademarked Dri-FIT fabric with accordance to Nike Considered guideline, the new national kit accentuates on details from satin lining around the collar to a tuxedo stripe running from the kit’s side. For an addition of flare, players can roll up their sleeves to reveal a hint of red, as in the flag’s tri-color. The most important aspect, however, is the one can’t be seen an emblem sewn on the inside, close to the heart with the slogan “”Nos Differences Nous Unissent”, “United By Our Differences.” The Nike French Football Federation Official Home Jersey for 2011-2012 is currently available at Nike retail locations worldwide.
