USA 2016 Women's Olympics Kit Released

Nike and the US women's national team have just unveiled a new home kit that will be worn at the Olympics in Brazil next month.

USA 2016 Olympics Kit

This is the new US women's national team jersey for the 2016 Olympics in Rio.

Based on Nike's ubiquitous Vapor kit template, the new USA 2016 home shirt adds a new detail to the well-known mix. A first in Nike jerseys, it features metallic threads inside the iconic sleeve construction to add an iridescent gleam. Other than that, the USA 2016 Olympics soccer jersey is kept simple; it comes with sparely applied detailing in blue and red, while a USA writing appears on the back neck.

To align with the Olympic tournament’s uniform regulations, the US Soccer crest is replaced by vibrant blue gloss “USA” lettering. Created using Light-Flex technology, it appears on the left chest of the shirt and right hem of the short.

Similar to Nike's kits for the 2015 Women's World Cup, the new United States 2016 Olympics soccer uniform is completed with gradient socks, fading from white at the top towards a bright blue around the ankles.

Set to be available to buy from July 23, the new USA 2016 Olympics kit will only be worn by the women's team, and only during the Olympic soccer tournament.
