Nike has officially unveiled the United States Men’s National Team jersey for the 2014 World Cup.

The jersey has a classic look – a white body and sleeves with gray horizontal pinstripes across the body and sleeves, as well as a white collar with a red trim. Complimenting the body is the US Soccer patch on the left and the Nike ensignia on the right, while the original 13 stars of the American Flag located have been cleverly placed inside the back of the neck.

“The new kit clearly showcases the USA’s national pride and distinct sense of style, while also capturing the nation’s eternal optimism,” said Martin Lotti, Creative Director for Nike Soccer.

On the back of the jersey is a specially designed font for names and numbers, while each number on the back also contains a small U.S. Soccer crest at the bottom.

Clint Dempsey summed up his feelings on the jersey:

It’s always an honor to wear the colors of your country, and this summer we will be hard to miss in an all-white look. We will be traveling all over Brazil and playing in a lot of different conditions, so the innovative Nike designs will serve us well.

    I’m not a fan of collars in general, and this kit is no exception. They went from the truly classic looking, dynamic feel of the Centennial Kit to this turd of a golf shirt. It’s so incredibly dull.

      Worst Uniform Ever!

    Nike going to release new WC cleats/boots?

    The shirt is fine, I guess (if it has to have a collar, at least it’s the same color as the shirt), but why go back to the clip-art crest?

    At least I’ll probably be able to rock the jersey at work. With the collar it should pass for business casual

    I agree with dws110 the centennial is better…. also 1. are they are old trafford? 2. Who are the other people besides dempsey and morgan?

    Are these kits for the colonies? They look like England.

    Anyone else think it looks like Dempsey is grabbing himself a feel on Morgan?

    The fact that they are the color of toilet paper does not mask the fact that they are a turd.

    Worst kit we’ve had since the equally bad ’09 all-white look.

    Before these came out, I couldn’t care less about the general design, I just wanted the Centennial crest or a redesign that approached it. Going from last year’s stylish throwbacks to the 90’s clipart shit again is a big disappointment.

    Bring back the Centennial Crest!!!

    They had a chance to drop Nike and move on to another manufacture but they chose to stay and lock in to a long contract, this is the end product. Should’ve given Under Armor a shot.

    Every other national team has their patriotic colors while ours looks like a f**king High School uniform! How disappointing…

    Apologies in advance to an real ladies.

    Ladies get your panties out of a wad. It’s a freaking shirt and pair of shorts with a corporate logo.

    B-O-R-I-N-G

    We have dope colors, yet our uniforms pretty much always suck. Look at France. Look at Ath Madrid.

    Give us something that’s both bold and classy for once.
