Unboxing: US Nike 2014 World Cup Home Kit

The US Soccer Federation released the Nike design and it has a white polo collar. The collar and the sleeves have red trim, and the shorts and socks also are white The uniform will be used by the men's and women's teams.

"The new kit clearly showcases the USA's national pride and distinct sense of style, while also capturing the nation's eternal optimism," said Martin Lotti, Creative Director for Nike Soccer.

"It's always an honor to wear the colors of your country, and this summer we will be hard to miss in an all-white look," said United States men's national team captain Clint Dempsey. "We will be traveling all over Brazil and playing in a lot of different conditions, so the innovative Nike designs will serve us well."

Been reading a lot of negative comments about the design of this particular jersey from fans.I kind of agree with most comments given. But this doesn't stop me from buying one from the Nike store. I have been waiting to own one since forever in Malaysia. Luckily this year, Nike Malaysia did market this jersey in the country for the upcoming world cup in June 2014. 

The jersey is a plain white polo with thin stripes like a golf shirt. No comments on its material quality since it's a Nike Dri-Fit. The jersey has the US crest and Nike logo embroidery.

The sizing of US 'small' chest is at 95cm. I would prefer the US 'small' to be at 90cm making the polo-t fitter to the body which suit with a soccer jersey concept nowadays.

Sharing more photos from my iPhone5 at low light condition.

Summary: Design could be better. I think the price tag for this jersey is way too high even though its a Nike with Dri-Fit material. I still love this jersey as this is my first 'US' world cup and 'hometown' jersey. Hope that the away kit will be more exciting.

Design: ★☆☆☆☆
Price: ★☆☆☆☆
Quality: ★★★★☆
Item Recommendation: ★★☆☆☆ (an extra star since I love my hometown country)
