United’s new away kit was launched in Cape Town today (Friday 20 July) at The Castle, South Africa’s oldest surviving building, set against Table Mountain.
The 2012/13 kit comprises white shirt, black shorts, and white and black socks – colours that have long been used for the club’s second strip.
The stand-out feature on the new shirt is the Henley Crew collar with red detail and a button closure; this style is part of the club’s heritage but is also a nod to the current youth style in Manchester. The shirt has a black monochromatic crest to complement the design.
United's iconic devil features on the shirt’s outer back neck graphic and also on the shorts, which are a black tonal gingham print in line with the new home shirt design.
The socks are white with a black top and, again, the graphic of the club’s devil stands proud. The socks offer an innovative new design featuring an updated cotton footbed, offering the support and comfort enjoyed by professionals to all who wear them.
The kit combines modern sport and youth style to give the club an iconic new look; it is also Nike's most technologically advanced kit and so aids athlete comfort and performance. Made from ground-breaking recycled polyester, it is the most environmentally friendly kit ever produced by Nike.
