New Balance and Athletic Club have presented the agreement that will unite them for the next six seasons, as well as the new kits for the 2017/18 season. With San Mames as an unbeatable setting, numerous guests have been able to see the new kits up-close. The motto used for the campaign has been “Unique in the World”.
The home kit includes the traditional red & white stripes, colors that have identified the club throughout history. The jersey has a black woven neck, a full-color Athletic Club emblem and the NB logo on the chest. The Ikurriña is stamped on the back of the neck. The outfit is completed with black shorts with red streaks and red socks.
The design of the second shirt is based on a solid black stamped with touches of color in red and gray. The shorts feature gray color with red and black streaks alternating in each side, are complemented with the socks in black color.
The third kit pays tribute to the legends of the past who won the Copa del Rey in 1903. Other key features are the “V” neck, a full-color Athletic Club shield and the NB logo on the chest. The shirt consists of blue and white stripes with fine details in red, while the shorts of the clothing are totally blue with white streaks on each side.
The kits were developed using NB Dry technology, a moisture wicking fabric that helps keep players cool and dry whilst wicking sweat from the body, making it fast drying. 3D stretch mesh under-arm regions and a body map mesh to the back of the shirt have been incorporated to aid movement and airflow around the body.
