Look of summer | Get the full Naija experience


Written by Zlatko

The summer is here, and it doesn’t look like it’s going to leave anytime soon. Why not get ready for the summer with the newest Nigeria World Cup shirts and gear. Nike has made an energetic collection for the Nigerian Football Federation and it’s imbued with the Naija spirit.

What is Naija? The word has many uses and defines a certain future-focused optimism of a new generation of Nigerians that celebrates the nation’s vibrant culture. But using this word requires attitude, even panache. It shouldn’t be understood as a stand-in for Nigeria, and instead Naija reflect a youthful exuberance, pride and fresh perspective on patriotism. For some Naija means the new Nigeria.

Nike’s energetic collection has many great products which is well suited for a nice summer look. The Nigeria Home Shirt is made with a fresh look, which pays homage to two previous Nigeria Home Shirts. The 2018 Home Shirt has a familiar badge recolored to honor the 1996 “Dream Team” which won the Olympic football tournament. While the 1994 Home Shirt design is used for the rest of the shirts, due to it was the first time Nigeria qualified for the World Cup. The Home Shirt has an eagle inspired black-and-white sleeves, while it is supercharged through abstracted patterns and hyper colours. Surely people are going to turn their heads around when they see you rock the 2018 Home Shirt on the streets.

The Away Shirt is made in a cool and refined vision of a classic Nigeria full-green kit, making these two shirts the perfect yin/yang combo. But the shirts are not the only new Naija stuff. Nike has also released some cool off-pitch gear, such as a travel suit, reversible bucket hat and much more. Nike might just have made the best Nike World Cup shirt and merchandise for this year’s World Cup.
