As Tottenham Hotspur prepares to embark on another Champions League campaign, Nike Football reveals the Club’s all-new third kit, which will predominately be used as the away strip in European competition this season.
The dark purple kit is characterised by a dazzle camo that nods to current streetwear trends and brings a stylish edge to advanced performance apparel. Complementing the dark purple is a rich yellow that is used sparingly to highlight detailing throughout the kit. For example, the Club’s crest – the famous cockerel atop a football – is in yellow, as are solid stripes running down the shoulders, the word “SPURS” knit into the front of the socks and player names and numbers.
As in Tottenham Hotspur’s 2017-18 home and away match collections, Nike AeroSwift, the most advanced football apparel technology, is employed for the Club’s first ever Nike third kit. The AeroSwift design process creates a lightweight product and facilitates performance at the highest level. The resulting kits are 10% lighter and dry 25% faster than previous Nike kits, with 50% more stretch.
Every part of the kit is fine-tuned for the athlete to operate at top speed, with geometric knit zones that enhance fit and comfort, ventilation stripes that expand to reveal a flash of electric blue when the player is in motion, and socks with NikeGRIP technology that provides the ultimate foot-to-boot connection.
The third kit is complemented by a bespoke training and travel line that players will wear in the lead up to European fixtures. The training line takes inspiration from the third kit, continuing the dark purple and yellow colour tones across training, travel and pre-match.
Nike leverages sustainable innovation for its football kits through the use of recycled polyester, delivering unrivalled performance and lower environmental impact.
The kit’s shirt and shorts are constructed with recycled polyester fabric, which is made from recycled plastic bottles melted down to produce a fine yarn.
Each kit is made using approximately 16 recycled plastic bottles. Since 2010, Nike has diverted more than three billion plastic bottles from landfills into recycled polyester, enough to cover about 5,200 football pitches.
