Looking For Nike's New Nigerian Futbol Jersey? They've Already Sold Out.
At the center of the hype, Nigeria's new futbol jerseys are being touted as the best redesign in quite some time. According to Nike's Football Design Director Dan Farron, "...we wanted to tap into the attitude of the nation...". In order to come up with the collection, Farron and team dug into the profiles of the players. "We started to see trends in attitude and energy connecting the athletes to music, fashion and more. They are part of a resoundingly cool culture."
Alex Iwobi qualified Nigeria for this summer's tournament. "I grew up in England, but Nigeria is my homeland," he says. "When I scored that goal, the players were dancing, the fans were playing trumpets and bringing drums…there was just so much passion and energy. It is always an honor to wear the white and green. To compete this summer is not just our dream, it is also the dream of our fans. Together, we all represent Naija." (via Okayafrica)
