Classic football shirts never go out of fashion. The memories attached to those shirts live on.
Nike has worked with Arsenal to create a commemorative shirt following the club’s 2014 FA Cup victory and celebrate their 20-year partnership.
The shirt, which uses the current 2013/14 home kit as its base, incorporates a unique design that is inspired by 20 of the most iconic Arsenal kits from the past two decades.
As well as featuring industry-leading innovation, each Nike shirt throughout the 20-year partnership is evocative of key moments in Arsenal’s rich history - from the kit worn during the 2003/04 'Invincibles' season, to the celebratory redcurrant shirt that marked the final farewell to Highbury in 2006.
Marc van Pappelendam, VP/GM of Nike UK & Ireland, commented: "Nike has enjoyed a wonderful partnership with Arsenal Football Club. As the Arsenal team became more iconic, their kit designs followed suit. The kits which Nike has produced for the club over the last 20 years tell a story; a timeline of success which will be remembered for a long time to come."
A limited number of photographic prints will be available to buy at Nike’s Phenomenal House in London, where the shirt itself will be also be on display between May 26 and 30.
Following its exhibition at the London Phenomenal House, the shirt will be on show at NikeTown London, before moving to its permanent home in the Arsenal Football Club Museum from June 30.
