Neymar Brazil (Nike)Nike once again continues to evolve with the newest kits for one of the biggest sports brands in the world.

The newest version of the uniforms that the Pentacampeão will be more thematic to their identity as a football nation.

The Verdeamarelha is a symbol of what Brazilian football is all about ever since they began wearing it back in the 1950′s.   It was a change that helped heal wounds left by the white uniforms that were last used in the 1950 World Cup.  Since then, every time that yellow jersey steps onto a pitch anywhere on the planet.

As far as performance, Nike continued to offer some of the best and most innovative eco-friendly technology that is out there.   The fabric of the new shorts is made with 100% recycled polyester, while the fabric of the jerseys is made with at least 96% recycled polyester.  So in essence the kits are made using an average of 13 recycled plastic bottles according to the Oregon-based sportswear firm.
