The Netherlands Home Kits are famously bright orange, which is the historic color of the Dutch people, originating back to the coat of arms of the Dutch founding father, William. Today, the Dutch national soccer team are known for their an innovative style of play that matches the country's unconventional approach to design and art, but, in both cases, always with a distinct and effective reason. Similar to the Away Kit designed by Nike Soccer, the 2012/2013 Home Kit is, unlike in years past, are a single color - a vibrant orange - making it unmistakably Dutch from head to toe. The shirts also have a tonal diamond print on the left torso and right bottom side to create a sash effect reminiscent of the team's 1904 kit. The shorts and socks are also in traditional orange, but are modern in design, including improved cushioning and the infusion of Nike Dri-FIT technology that wicks away moisture.  The entire kit is made using at least 96% recycled polyester and integrates an average of 13 plastic bottles, making them as equally environmentally friendly as they are lightweight.
