Nike today officially launched the new US home shirt for the 2010 World Cup at a media event in New York City which featured Walter Bahr, the legendary American soccer player who played in the 1950 match against England when they won 1-0 in the biggest shock in World Cup history.
The USA World Cup home shirt is now available to order. The shirt is beautifully designed and features blue and red trim, as well as a diagonal stripe across the first in honor of the 1950 USA World Cup team.
Interestingly, to make the 2010 USA national team kit, Nike’s fabric suppliers sourced discarded plastic bottles from Japanese and Taiwanese landfill sites and then melted them down to produce new yarn that was ultimately converted to fabric for the jerseys. Between 7-8 plastic bottles are been used in the creation of each shirt.
