Chile Copa America 2016 Kits Released

Nike and the Chilean national team today unveiled the all-new Nike Chile home and away jerseys for Copa America Centenario at the brand's 2016 Innovation Summit in New York City. Both Chile 2016 kits combine traditional with modern elements, not based on Nike's all-new Vapor kit with AeroSwift technology, but the previous Dri-Fit standard.



Chile won its very first major title on home soil last summer in the 2015 Copa America. While Puma made the 2015 Copa America Chile kits, Nike became the Chile kit producer immediately afterwards, releasing the first Nike Chile kits the next month.

Chile 2016 Copa America Kit

This is the new Chile home shirt.



The new Chile Copa America kit boasts a clean design in red, blue and white that is sure to become a fans' favorite. Broadly based on the template of the Paris Saint-Germain 15-16 third kit, the new Chile shirt is red for the most part, with a blue line running down on each side. A constructed, tonal v-collar with blue piping around the rear is used for the Nike Chile Copa America Centenario shirt.



Completing the set of colors inspired by the Chilean flag and the Chile federation logo, the Nike Swoosh, sitting proudly on the right chest of the new Chile jersey, is colored in white.

For the first time in history, the Chile 2016 home kit shorts are red, while the socks are blue. This interesting style is inspired by Nike's 2016 national team kit collection that includes similar combinations for the likes of England, France and Portugal.

Chile 2016 Away Kit

Also based on the Nike Vapor template is the Chile 2016 away shirt. Employing the traditional Chile away kit color, white, the Chile 2016 away kit combines it with red, used for piping along the back of the collar and blue, used for the Nike Swoosh and a line that runs below each arm and down both sides of the shirt.



In an unusual move, Nike combines the white Chile away shirt with white shorts and red socks, probably a first in Chile kit history but in line with the brand's other 2016 national team kits.
