Following the announcement in July that adidas would be taking over the manufacture of the French side’s uniform the German apparel company has just released Les Blues’ new Away kit, which will make its debut on November 24th when the European rugby giants meet Samoa.
The design, which is typically stylish (as expected of the French side!), is primarily white, with adidas’ famous three stripes in red and blue on the shoulders. An oversized national emblem and the adidas logo are the only other elements on the front of the jersey. Representing the famous ‘French flair’, the shirts were conceived to reflect the passion and creativity with which French sides approach the game of rugby.
adidas have utilised their very latest technology in the new shirts, with the ClimaCool material ensuring a more comfortable experience for players, and the form-fitting cut creating a stream-lined appearance and making it more difficult for opposition players to grab hold of them.
