Time to gear up for 2011, the year of tasty international friendlies, Euro 2012 qualification, Copa America, and the Gold Cup in the good old U.S. of A. At any rate, Argentina will blend a mix of veteran presence (see Javier Zanetti and Esteban Cambiasso) and the emergence of exciting young world-class talent (Javier Pastore, Lionel Messi, Sergio Aguero, and Angel di Maria). They’ll keep a pretty similar design for their home endeavors, however, their traveling kit is a brand new design and frankly one of my favorite away jerseys out there. Introducing the new Argetina jersey.
The jersey is one of the most unique designs adidas has come out with a recent kit across any soccer team, as the company normally lets Nike handle the distinct designs. The kit is dark blue all over, certainly not a step outside the bounds of old Away Argentina kits. However, the similarities end here. The chest area is highly stylistic and modern in design. A light blue fading panel lines the majority of the chest and brings out the pride of Argentina’s home color scheme instantly. White and light blue contour lines sit below the big chest piece and dress up the shirt nicely. In the middle of the light blue fading panel lies the iconic Adidas logo which you have come to know and love. Lying beside it is the classic Argentina crest, which sits on practically every Argentina jersey constructed (at least every legitimate one). The arms feature three white lines that run down the length of the arm, a classic Adidas design. Light blue strips line the ends of the arm holes and really make the jersey pop a bit more. Finally, the neck hole even looks impressive. Gold and light blue contour lines run around the length of the neck hole, exuding classic good looks and modern styling all-in-one delightful package. Throw a Messi name set on the back and you’ve got yourself one of the coolest, most distinct jerseys out there.
This jersey is real comfortable, too. ClimaLite technology is embedded into the shirt, meaning you’ll get a cotton-poly blend shirt that wicks away moisture and keeps you dry while you run around the pitch, head out to hang out with your friends, or just lounge around watching La Albiceleste. It’s a really lightweight jersey that’s honestly appropriate for whenever you want to support one of the most exciting squads in the World to watch take the pitch. Really, it’s probably my favorite international jersey on the market right now.
