Paying tribute to 20 years of dedication and passion and in anticipation of a possible 6th World Cup appearence, PUMA FOOTBALL and FIGC revealed the new 2018 Italy jersey on Gianluigi Buffon's legendary shoulders as he unveiled a giant mural of himself by street artists Kamp Seedorf on the streets of Torino.
With its new FIGC badge the shirt is designed to invigorate memories of great Italian sides past with references to the Il Tricolore on the sleeve cuffs and under the back of the collar. And using that unforgettable Azzuro blue that rekindles memories of the first time you pulled on the shirt and watched your home heroes on TV, the first time you felt real joy, your First Passion.
In addition, the shirt is engineered using PUMA's highly developed evoKNIT Thermoregulation technology an enhanced moisture management and adaptive cooling system that helps create the perfect on-pitch body temperature. Combined with its seamless construction, the jersey offers the ultimate in fit and mobility for optimum performance.
Getting into the details you will notice engineered cooling fins in key zones on the shirt that act as channels regulating your bodies temperature, whilst dryCELL technology provides moisture management across the fabric with high performance yarns that wick sweat away from the body. All this is packaged into the seamless evoKNIT construction of the shirt that provides a lightweight second skin feel so the fabric moves with your body and not against it, allowing for better freedom of movement on the pitch.
