One of the highlights leading up any World Cup has got to be the unveiling of each nation’s team uniforms. There have already been some great ones unveiled by Nike, with Brazil’s national strip the latest to arrive. This year’s hosts actually put the focus on their blue away strip this time around, although the traditional yellow and green home colors of course still make an appearance. Nike worked with Brazilian designer Bruno Big to harness the energy of the Brazilian nation in making the kit, with several inspirational cues weaved into the technically sound design. The Southern Cross constellation  featured on the national flag also makes an appearance inside the neck, while the font on the jerseys is inspired by hand-printed street posters seen around Brazil. The whole uni is also given a more tailored, slimmer fit.

You’ll be able to pre-order these uniforms from March 19 at nike.com.
