Inter releases the 16/17 kits

New, comments

After an online leak a couple of days ago, Inter has released the official home and away kits for the upcoming season.

Today Inter has presented the jerseys that will be worn for the 16/17 season. They are exactly like the ones that were leaked a few days ago so fans have already had a little bit of time to warm up to them. According to our poll 61% of respondents gave a thumbs up, 34% thought they were okay, while 5% wanted nothing to do with them.

Home Kit:

According to Inter's official website: "The sleeves and shoulders are a contrasting black to give the kit an intimidating aesthetic and emphasize the power of the shoulders. The sides of the kit have a black stripe that runs the length of the shirt and black shorts, which expands when the player is in motion to provide greater ventilation and reveal bold flashes of blue underneath. For the first time ever Inter will wear vibrant yellow home socks with a black linear graphic on the calf, and contrasting with the shirt and socks they brilliantly highlight the most dynamic part of a footballer’s body, the lower legs, to accentuate speed.  All the details are in yellow: Pirelli in the center on the front of the shirt, Driver on the back below the number, the swooshes on the shirt, shorts and socks, and the numbers and players' names."

Also from that Inter statement: "The Away shirt remains white, but the iconic horizontal black and blue chest band has been transferred to the sleeves. In another modern twist the black half of the band now features thin blue pinstripes, while the blue half has thin black pinstripes.The sides of the kit have a black stripe that runs the length of the shirt and matching white shorts, which expands when the player is in motion to provide greater ventilation and reveal bold flashes of blue underneath.The new Away socks are blue with a black linear graphic on the calf, and contrasting with the shirt and socks they brilliantly highlight the most dynamic part of the footballer’s body, the lower legs, to accentuate speed, and provide a final flourish of color."

You can buy the new kits starting tomorrow from official Inter and Nike retailers.

In other kit related news it seems that Pirelli was removed from the front of the training jerseys the players wore today. The renewed agreement apparently only covers matchday kits, and the Suning Group is looking for a new sponsor for the training kits with a long-term view for a more lucrative matchday kit deal.
