Shakhtar and Nike introduced new kit

On July 13, the football club Shakhtar together with the technical sponsor Nike presented the team's home kit for the 2015/16 season.

The renewed outfit has a richer orange colour, which reflects the energy of the club. Black stripes on a bright-orange background on both sides of shirts are the new design feature, alongside the orange sleeves made as a single element along the entire length of the shoulder. They improved the neckline – the adapted style secures comfort and lightness for the players. The polo collar now has buttons, which not only adds style, but also serves a very specific purpose: to protect the players’ necks from direct sunlight. The style’s completeness is accentuated by black shorts with orange stripes on the sides, and by orange socks with a special pattern on the back of the lower leg.

- Shakhtar always set the highest goals for themselves in everything. The same requirements are applied to all the partners collaborating with the club. Nike company fully complies with the philosophy and standards of Shakhtar. Our joint long-term work always leaves the most enjoyable impression. I hope for the same fruitful cooperation in the future, - said the FC Shakhtar CEO Sergei Palkin.

The kit is made using unique technology that provides the players with top comfort on the pitch: adequate airing, temperature and dryness in any weather.

The players will put on the new kit for the first time in the Super Cup decider against Dynamo Kyiv on July 14.
