The new jersey incorporates a classic white with gray horizontal pinstripes across the body and sleeves. The jersey features a classic white polo shirt collar with red trim. Inside the back of the neck is a blue pennant tab with the 13 stars from the original American flag.
On the back, the top features a specially designed font for the USA names and numbers - a modern and angular style that is influenced by other U.S. sports teams. The jersey numbers also include a small U.S. Soccer crest at the bottom.
The redesigned shorts are white with a red stripe on each side. The new socks are also white .
The shirt, shorts and socks all feature fabric made from recycled plastic bottles - 100 percent recycled polyester in the shorts, 96 percent recycled polyester in the shirt and 78 percent in the socks.
The new U.S. Men's and Women's National Team kits will be available worldwide online starting Wednesday, March 5. The USA kit is currently available in Nike stores and on nike.com for pre-order.
