Introducing the new NTK for the All Whites. In line with Nike’s commitment to superior athletic performance and lower environmental impact, the fabric of the new kit’s shorts is made with 100% recycled polyester, while the fabric of the shirts is made with at least 96% recycled polyester.
Each kit is made using an average of 13 recycled plastic bottles. The new New Zealand home shirt is white and skilfully features a tonal effect of the silver fern across the whole of the body. The new home shorts are white, while the new home socks, now with improved cushioning for greater comfort, movement and protection, are also white with ‘New Zealand’ on the back of each calf. These are Nike’s lightest ever-global football kits; they are up to 23% lighter than the version four years ago.
Embedded with Nike Dri-FIT technology, the kits help to regulate players temperatures on the pitch by removing sweat from the body to keep them dry and cool faster than ever before.
Laser-cut ventilation on the shirt promotes localised cooling where athletes need it most to remain focused on the game. A new double knit structure and yarns also makes this kit 20% stronger, with no compromise to fit and feel with natural cotton added for comfort.

NIKE PRO COMBAT
To complete the ultimate uniform for modern football the New Zealand players will now be further augmented by wearing a base layer of Nike Pro Combat apparel underneath their match day kit. This includes the Nike Pro Combat Hypercool 2.0 top, which consists of ventilation and sweat-wicking fabric to help keep them cool and comfortable, while in colder weather the Thermal Mock top will keep them warm with a turtle neck, and all over a brushed inner surface which reflects heat back to the body without trapping moisture. The Nike Pro Combat Hyperstrong compression men's slider shorts are another powerful secret weapon. Featuring a padded waist and thigh protection in the most critical areas so players can slide tackle and go to ground with confidence, while mesh fabric is placed in the high heat zones for breathability. There is also a padded version of the shorts with added Vis Eva foam to absorb impact and protect athletes from injury.
TRAINING AND LIFESTYLE COLLECTION
To compliment the new match day kit Nike has also launched an integrated range of training and lifestyle clothing for both New Zealand players and fans to show their pride on and off the pitch.
On the training pitch players will benefit from an innovative range of apparel, designed to keep them comfortable in both the depths of winter and the height of summer. In hot weather they can keep cool in a short sleeve training top with ventilation panels, but when the temperature drops they can keep warm in a Mid-Layer training top protecting them from wind chill.
When it begins to rain players can add a wind proof and waterproof long sleeve performance shell top. New Zealand fans will also be able to express their pride and honour their team’s culture with the launch of a new range of hoodies, tracksuit tops, T-shirts, sweatshirts, caps, jackets and rugby tops.
The range has been created for both the fan who wants to show their allegiance or for those who want to be more subtle, and comes in New Zealand’s national colours, featuring the crest and other symbols, with crafted elements, premium fabrics and elevated design.
