They're the talk of the Premier league. The team pipped by the pundits to break the top four in England very soon. And we've got their stunning new Official Umbro Manchester City 09/10 Third Soccer Jersey!
The white jersey with the sash is a throwback of the one they wore in the 70s, and has been described as a ‘classic remastered’.
According to the kit designer, the shirt is a modern interpretation Of City’s original sash design, but with the sash moved to the other side. One of the reasons for doing this is was to draw attention to the crest, and this was done with the full support of the club and the club’s sponsor, ETIHAD. It was important that the sash did not distract from the crest but instead created a frame for the crest.
For the last decade, or so, any shirt with a design across the front is compromised with a space where the sponsor sits. Well this is a pure football kit and the sponsor - whether it is a brand or a manufacturer - should look to compliment the kit. By placing the sponsor under the crest and not breaking the sash, was blended contemporary with traditional design. This goes to show that innovation isn’t always about technology.
This shirt makes a statement. It stands out from the crowd - globally as well as domestically. The new shirt demonstrates that a sponsor can enhance rather than compromise a design.

These cool new 6.8 ounce boots Nike Mercurial Vapor Superfly Soccer Boots, hand-crafted in Italy, are so light, you could fly to space with them, or feel like you're a cosmonaut, with such neat colors as Orion Blue/Metallic Silver/Obsidian/Max Orange!
What follows is very technical info, which you'll find fascinating if A: you're a bridge engineer or B: a soccer boot connoisseur who loves getting the latest and greatest and all things soccer. Either way - enjoy!
The strength of Nike Flywire technology can be found in strategically-placed filaments acting like cables on a suspension bridge and offering support precisely where a foot needs it. These strong filaments allow for a minimalistic shoe upper, reducing weight to help create Nike's lightest football boots ever. Further refinement with help from bio-mechanics experts in the Nike Sports Research Lab resulted in optimal placement of the filaments. Ultra-thin Teijin material covers the top of the foot, with the Flywire technology attaching to the outsole and holding the foot in place. The Mercurial Vapor Superfly is the lightest football boot Nike has ever made. Flywire technology allowed the shoe to be stripped of all unnecessary pieces without compromising durability.
10 grams lighter than the first generation, the Mercurial Vapor Superfly's revolutionary outsole combines a 3 layers / 12 bars carbon fiber TEPEX® thermoplastic chassis engineered for flexibility (forefoot) and stiffness (arch), with direct Injection molded studs.
The 12% weight reduction was achieved by coring-out the 4 heel studs as well as 4 of the forefoot ones. The direct injection process becomes clearly visible with the studs structure being called-out in the signature NIKE Max Orange. Not only are these studs lighter - but they're stronger and more durable.

In our continuing efforts to expand our range, especially in the CONCACAF region, where we reside, we're super proud to bring you, for the first time ever: from Panama The Official Lotto Tauro Fútbol Club Home Soccer Jersey!
They're not named after the Ford sedan or the zodiac sign, but more aptly, after a 'toro', bull: that universal and multi-cultural symbol of strength.
The team was founded in 1984 and played in a regional league until the establishment of the professional league - Asociación Nacional Pro-Fútbol (ANAPROF for short) in 1987. Since then the Bulls have become the giants of Panamá, winning a record 7 First Division (or Liga Panameña de Fútbol) championships.
