US Men’s Soccer debuts new Third Kit in Gotham against Messi and the Albicelestes

Above is Clint Dempsey modeling the new U.S Men’s National Soccer Team third kit. After much demand from the fans, Nike decided to manufacture this kit because of the massive sales successes of the two World Cup kits (Released in March 2010, sold out before the calendar hit April.) This third kit should be no different, the red design is in reference to the team’s Red All Over campaign, and of course, Old Glory. The U.S soccer federation partnered with social media site Twitter to create the new motto for the team that would be inscribed on the side of the jersey for tonight’s match against Argentina at the Meadowlands, this is because “Don’t Tread on Me” while being a decent slogan, is getting pretty stale.  After receiving hundreds of thousands of entries (including my: One Team, 90 Minutes, One Goal) they decided to go with “Indivisible.” A solid slogan, although it was taken from the Pledge of Allegiance. I’m sure this kit will be a hot seller (I want to get mine with Dempsey, but I need to win my Bracket Pool to get the money to do that.) Its a solid jersey, my only complaint is that it should be paired with white shorts, it looks kind of weird going Red on Blue, although they are two of the three national colors. Regardless, get ready for Messi and co. to most likely run circles around USA tonight, but its great to see Nike churning out some excellent designs and listening to the fans. I’ll be back early next week with Final Four analysis, til’ then – GO UNC and USA! USA! – J
