Home / Product Reviews / 2011-12 France Away Jersey Review


Nike have taken over from Adidas as the official supplier and designer of kit for the French National team, and this new design is definitely something different. Now I’m not a fan of France of late, but I used to love watch Zidane and the rest of them run circles round the other sides during the World Cup. But ever since Henry’s handball put out my beloved Ireland I haven’t been able to stomach them. Thats said, its good to see them making a new start wand working their way back to glory. This France jersey represents that new beginning.

The design is striking with a white background covered with horizontal blue stripes. It reminds of a French Navy uniform from the 1940’s, and has that certain class you can only find on something French. Its made out of 96% polyester, so its lightweight and ventilated well. The white color also makes it good for playing on a hot day with your friends as it will reflect the sun better than a black Mexico jersey.

Overall, its a quality shirt, and a great way to make a new start with a new French national side. At $79.99, they aren’t cheap, but its worth shelling out for a classy shirt like this.
