Puma Italy 2018 World Cup Home Kit Info + Shorts + Socks + Anthem Jacket Leaked

A first picture showing parts of the Italy home kit for the 2018 World Cup has surfaced. On it, we can see shorts and socks of the Italy 2018 home uniform by Puma, together with the fitting anthem jacket.

Currently ranked second in its qualifying group, Italy will most likely have to face off with another runner-up in order to seal a place for Russia.

This image shows the anthem jacket, shorts and socks of the Italy national team for the 2018 World Cup.

Starting off, the Italy 2018 anthem jacket is dark blue with a fade towards royal blue in the center, alongside a blue zipper. A white Puma logo and the redesigned FIGC crest, placed almost at the very top of the jacket, complete the look.

Although we are not able to show you a picture of it, we have obtained the first bits of info on the Italy 2018 World Cup home shirt. For starters, all Puma kits for the World Cup will be based on an enhanced version of the 'evoKNIT' template the brand debuted in spring 2016 for the Cameroon, Ghana and Cote d'Ivoire.

Country-specific detailing in the form of jacquard printing will round off all of Puma's 2018 World Cup kits, including the one for Italy.

From what we can see of shorts and socks, the Italy 2018 kit features the same two shades of blue as the anthem jacket. It's predominantly royal blue with dark blue trim and white Puma logos.

It will be very interesting to see the final design of the Italy 2018 home jersey, so stay tuned for updates as we receive them. As for the shorts and socks, they don't appear to have a design that's all too much different from the current ones, for what it's worth.

Going by recent experience, the Italy 2018 kit will be launched in November, with the away following in February next year.
