Check out the new Barcelona kit for the 2012-13 season. I like the new design as Nike softened and fused the lines that divided the blue and red colors. The away kit is a brighter orange to celebrate the team's effervescent style of play. Plus, the new kit makes use of the ground-breaking recycled polyester that makes the fabric lighter, more absorbent, and more smooth to wear. That's 13 bottles of plastic per shirt. Whoever thought of this should be given an award. It's brilliant.
I already have one of these shirts in the away version of Portugal. Aside from the cross in front that I believe makes it attractive, I love the feel of the shirt. It doesn't drag across my skin. I have come across a similar shirt in the last week when I purchased the Hoffenheim shirt from Puma. Now I really don't like all the new designs for Euro '12 but the shirt in itself is fantastic. As for my verdict on the new Barcelona kits --- I like! Therefore I will get.
Here's a video featuring the process in which the new kits are made out of recycled plastic bottles. Amazing.
