Today New Balance Football has unveiled the new 2017/18 FC Porto home kit. The jersey includes a white rib crew neck collar and cuffs with tipping detail. A full colour FC Porto crest is applied to the chest.
Also integrated in the campaign “Joga Sem Fronteiras” (“Play Without Boundaries”), just like the third equipment, the main equipment sees the return of the iconic Porto Blue and white stripes that have been a constant feature of FC Porto’s home kits since 1909.
The kit has been developed using NB Dry technology, a moisture wicking fabric that helps keep players cool and dry whilst wicking sweat from the body, leading to fast drying. A 3D stretch mesh in the under-arm regions and a mesh to the back of the shirt have been incorporated as well to aid movement and airflow around the body.
The kit is completed with Porto Blue shorts and white socks. The cushioning integrated within the sock’s ankle and heel areas offers added support. The foot bed was developed with polypropylene, to prevent excess moisture when the foot makes contact with the boot.
The goalkeeper kit has been engineered in line with the outfield players’ jerseys, sporting a mock vent and back body map mesh system to compliment the outfield kit aesthetic. The all black design with full colour crest, and NB branding in white has a simple look, completed by the tonal three colour sleeve pattern.
