As Tottenham Hotspur prepares to embark on another European campaign, Nike Football reveals the club’s all-new third kit, which will predominately be used as the away strip in European competition this season.

The dark purple kit is characterized by a dazzle camo that nods to current streetwear trends and brings a stylish edge to advanced performance apparel. Complementing the dark purple is a rich yellow that is used sparingly to highlight detailing throughout the kit. For example, the club’s crest –the famous cockerel atop a football – is in yellow, as are solid stripes running down the shoulders, the word “SPURS” knit into the front of the socks and player names and numbers.

As in Tottenham Hotspur’s 2017-18 home and away match collections, Nike AeroSwift, the most advanced football apparel technology, is employed for the club’s first ever Nike third kit. The AeroSwift design process creates a lightweight product and facilitates performance at the highest level. The resulting kits are 10% lighter and dry 25% faster than previous Nike kits, with 50% more stretch.

Every part of the kit is fine-tuned for the athlete to operate at top speed, with geometric knit zones that enhance fit and comfort, ventilation stripes that expand to reveal a flash of electric blue when the player is in motion, and socks with NikeGRIP technology that provides the ultimate foot-to-boot connection.
