Following the World Cup Final against Spain, the Netherlands pride took a little bit of a hit. They were criticized for negative tactics and the loss in the final is sure to scar the players who participated in the match. Even though the Euro’s are not as big as the World Cup, winning the tournament could be a huge boost for the Netherland team and help reduce the pain of the World Cup. If you are a fan of the Netherlands and want to support them in their quest for European glory, you need to start gearing up today and we have the perfect way to start.
The Nike Netherlands Authentic N98 track jacket is sure to catch everyone’s eye with its bright color. As with most Netherlands gear, this jacket is bright orange with some black to accent it. At first glance, the jacket looks a little plain, however if you look again, you can see faint stripes that go down the front. It also has a thick stripe that goes down each arm. In order to achieve an authentic look, the Netherlands badge as well as their sponsor ING is stitched on to the front left chest. The Nike swoosh is also stitched on the right chest. Even as you are walking away, people can see where your loyalty is because “Nederland” is pressed on the back of the jacket.
This jacket looks great and feels great. It is a cotton/polyester mix so it is comfortable and durable. It also helps keep you warm because it is thicker than most track jackets. In order to achieve warmth, the jacket features elastic sleeve cuffs as well as an elastic waistband to fit snugly against your body so heat cannot escape and the cold wind cannot get in. This jacket does run a little small, so you may want to think about going a size up when you order.
With all the new Nike apparel being released for national teams lately, it is hard for something to stand out. This jacket definitely accomplishes that feat with the bright color and amazing feel. At $89.99, it is a little expensive, however, it is authentic and extremely well made so it should last for a good amount of time. The style is also nice because it wont be going out of style with a pretty straightforward design. If you are a fan of the Netherlands and want to show your support everyday, head over to SoccerPro.com today and grab one of these before they run out.
