The Vapor Shirt is like the adidas Authentic Shirt, and the same goes for the Replica Shirts. The Vapor Shirt is the same shirts as the ones the players are going to use on the pitch, while the Replica Shirt is made for everyday use. Looking at the details of the shirt we see that the crest also is heat-transferred, making it seamless and comfier. Furthermore, the details around the shoulders are more visible on the Vapor than the Replica shirt, gives the shirt a nicer look.
The place he shirts differ the most is once again the techs. The Vapor Shirt is engineered for players to use on pitch, and meantime also offering the best possible conditions for the players. The Vapor Shirt is made with the Vaporknit material, which is a knitted material that increases the airflow. The Vapor Shirt is also made with an Open-hole texture on the chest and back, which secures the players an optimal breathability. The shirt has an athletic fit, which makes it tighter and slimmer, while the Raglan sleeves follows your natural range of motion, making your movement feel more free and natural.
The Replica Shirt is designed differently. The crest is knitted into the shirt and the shirt is also designed with the Dri-FIT technology and the lightweight Nike Breathe fabric. This combination will keep you dry and comfortable during the time you are active, while the Breathe fabric keeps you cool on the warmer days. The fit of the Replica Shirt is more loose making it more suitable for street and fashion wear.
These are the basics of the differences between the Authentic and Replica Shirts. Are you fancying to get your own Authentic or Vapor Shirt?
