Honouring the warrior and the wolf.
Nike has launched AS Roma’s jerseys for the 18/19 season that honours the eternal city’s roots. At home, they’ll don the iconic deep red and golden yellow tops with prints detailing chainmail armour worn by soldiers in ancient Rome. The design represents the deep links the club has with the people of Rome and with fans all over the world.
Nike then moved towards a clean, wolf grey colour for the away jersey which is inspired by the mythical Capitoline Wolf on the club crest. The founding story of Rome goes that brothers Romulus and Remus were raised by a she-wolf. “This kit is quite simply a color story inspired by the wolf,” explains Pete Hoppins, Nike Football Apparel Senior Design Director. “A classy wolf grey kit fits well with the mythology surrounding the city and how the club places great value on this important symbol.”
The lupetto symbol (little wolf) also makes an appearance on the back of the jersey – a subtle touch to an elegant jersey for the upcoming season.
