Nike officially unveiled the new US Soccer Away Kit today. Both the Men’s and Women’s team will have the privilege of competing in them. The Women’s team will debut the kit in the Algarve Cup in the beginning of March and the Men’s team will wear the kit against Denmark on March 25th.
Naturally, Nike got the likes of Dempsey and Alex Morgan to model the jersey for the release photos. Check out some of the photos and let us know what you think.

Whoever you are who designedthese please come find me and I’ll buy you a beer beer because these are fantastic. The only problem with when people make these mock jerseys is that I immediately want them to exist so I can buy and wear them. Unfortunately, they never get made so I am left wondering what might have been. If I ever got the chance I would wear the New Jersey jersey (that’s fun to say) everywhere just like Doug did when he only wore the same green vest and khaki shorts. Why wear anything else when that jersey is the apex of style?
The ol’ “Canadian Tuxedo” jersey design. It’s a classic. Truth be told I want to hate these but they do look kind of cool. I just don’t see how they are practical. Anyone who has worn jeans in the summer can tell you they aren’t the most breathable material so why would you make an entire soccer kit out of denim? Granted these jersey may just be designed to only look like denim but it is still a weird concept. Whoever designed this jersey must be literally un-fireable because that is the only way you have the confidence to pitch and follow through with this kit design. Anyone trying to keep their jobs probably wouldn’t go further than slapping a few more stripes on the uniform, tweaking the color, and then calling it a day.
