Today Nike unveiled the latest edition of the US men’s and women’s national soccer team jerseys. In a departure from recent styles the teams will be wearing nearly identical kit for the upcoming cycle in the base red, white and blue color scheme.

Here’s a description on some of the key elements:

The shirt also features a tonal sash to echo the same design on the shirts worn by the US Men’s National Team when they famously defeated England in the 1950 Finals in Brazil.

Both kits are visually identical but the women’s kit is designed specifically for the female athlete to enhance range of motion creating a uniquely feminine silhouette. The American Stars and Stripes flag, affectionately known as ‘Old Glory,’ is placed inside the back of the neck of both versions to inspire pride.

The new home shorts are blue, while the socks – now with improved cushioning for greater comfort – movement and protection, are white with a blue band at the top.

As with their other recent releases the US jerseys and shorts are made from recycled plastic bottles. Each uniform set requires 13 recycled bottles to produce.

You can see Clint Dempsey above and here’s a glance at the new look as modeled by Tim Howard, Megan Rapinoe and Landon Donovan:
