The most winning club side in Italy, Juventus FC, have just unveiled the new home-shirt, which will hopefully lead the club to even grander things in the 2013/14 season. La Vecchia Signora could recently celebrate their 29th official championship and with this new shirt they hope to add to that score.
Italy are known for many things, but especially style and design is of importance to them in The boot country. Therefore it is no surprise that Juventus' new home-shirt are spot on. The design team at Nike have chosen a very classic approach, where details like a low-key V-neck and stylish matt finish really come to their own.

Juventus are affectionately known as The Zebras, which naturally refers to the clubs iconic black and white striped home-shirts. Where before there has been experimented with different stripe designs, they have this time gone back to completely classic, clean stripes. They are of course perfectly symmetrical and on the middle of the chest runs a tactically placed stripe, which is made especially for the coveted Scudetto-badge, reserved only for the champions of Italy.
Juventus have in the last couple of years established themselves as a true superpower in the Serie A and now look to be challenging the biggest sides on the European scene. The Turin-club could in 2012/13 celebrate Scudetto for the 31st time, but in the statistics it will only go down as the 29th. This is because of the Calciopoli-scandal, in which the club had two honours removed, for alleged matchfixing in 2005 and 2006.
Juventus' new shirt is designed and produced in accordance to Nike's extremely high standards for environmental impact. This means that the shorts are produced from 100% recycled polyester and the shirt is, as a minimum, made of 96% recycled materials. To put that into perspective, Nike use, on average, 13 recycled bottles on each replica-kit they produce.
Even though the new home-shirt is produced almost entirely from recycled materials, it is still a technological marvel. The shirt is figure stitched, so it fits well and is comfortable to wear and to add to that it is made with Nikes DriFit-technology. The DriFit makes sure sweat and moisture is wicked away from the body and out to the outer layer of the shirt, which dries incredibly quick. This way you are kept dry and cool, when you most need it.
On the authentic version of Juventus' new shirt Nike have gone the extra mile to make the shirt even more special. Down the side of the shirt, Nike have with a powerful laser cut ventilation holes, which also help keep you cool. The Authentic version is completely like the shirt the professionals use during games.
