Revealed: Does Nike Produce Secret 'Bodyfit' Authentic (Match) Kits For Players Only?

Sunday, 1 September 2019
Some weeks ago, we compared all the differences between Nike's authentic and replica kits of the 2019-2020 season. Now Boca Juniors supporter @_ramsearch has revealed that there is a second authentic Nike style that we never heard of and that is usually not sold to public.

Nike 2019-20 Authentic vs Replica Kits

The reason why all this got revealed is pretty simple. Nike is saying goodbye to Boca after the year and is selling all their Boca stuff in its outlets, including jerseys that were never intended to be sold but were solely made for the players themselves.

Nike Boca Juniors 2018-2019 Away Kit - Authentic Version With Special Slim Player Exclusive Fit

@_ramsearch got his hands on three different versions of the Nike Boca Juniors 2018-2019 away jersey - the well-known replica and authentic as well as a second authentic that has been originally intended to be only used by players.

The replica kit is the same as usual (standard fit, replica materials like Dri-Fit), the first authentic kit is also not new (more slim fit, authentic Vaporknit materials) and so the really interesting thing is the second authentic jersey.

The special player-only kit comes with an even more slim 'bodyfit'. It also has the tags printed on it and does not come with etiquettes.

We are not sure if there is a special 'secret' authentic player-only version of Nike kits for other clubs than Boca Juniors. Jerseys from Argentinian teams are often produced in Argentina and not in Nike's and other brand's usual factories in Asia.

What do you think of this? Does anybody own a matchworn Nike authentic football kit from one of the Swoosh's big clubs that is not Boca to be able to confirm that there is also a second player 'unknown' issue version version for other clubs from Nike? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
