ARSENAL 2012/13 REPLICA HOME/AWAY JERSEYS
LAUNCHED ON: August 20, 2012
Launch Date: Now Available
Arsenal Football Club has long been a benchmark for innovation and change, so it’s no surprise that this year’s jerseys have a bold new look and are part of Nike’s most environmentally friendly kit ever produced.
The 2012/13 Arsenal Replica Home Jersey
Gracing the field at Emirates Stadium this year, the 2012/13 Arsenal Replica Home Jersey boasts the traditional red block body with white sleeves, but fans will find a new twist: a blue (obsidian) hoop detail on the collar and sleeves. Obsidian has long been used as a third color on Arsenal jerseys and in the Arsenal crest. Its inclusion in the 2012/13 kit lends a fresh look while giving a nod to the club’s 126-year history.
The 2012/13 Arsenal Replica Away Jersey
The adventurous new 2012/13 Arsenal Replica Away Jersey marks a new direction for the club. Its eye-catching design, with rich purple and black stripes and red trim, will surely stand out on the road. The regal colors were selected to honor the Gunner’s historical royal links. Once known as “Royal Arsenal,” the club was named after the Arsenal munitions factory and the Royal Oak Pub in London.
Both soccer jerseys ($80 each) feature the iconic Arsenal crest embroidered on the chest, along with edge-stitched seams and sweat-wicking Dri-FIT fabric to deliver all-around comfort and quality.
