It's been 20 years since Nike first took to the pitch at the 1994 World Cup in Pasadena, California. Since then, the brand has become one of the top brands in the sport thanks to international superstars like Luis Figo, Fabio Cannavaro and Ronaldo. To celebrate, Nike is launching the Nike F.C. collection, a line of apparel and a badge of honor representing passion, talent, irreverence and the willingness to put it all on the line.
Nike F.C.'s motto is "without risk there is no glory." This slogan is inscribed on the crest of the iconic Nike F.C. N98 Jacket. First made famous by Ronaldo at the 1998 World Cup, the jacket has evolved with a lowered collar and updated design for a new look for 2014.
Also part of the collection is the Nike F.C. Glory Tee, which got its origins from the 1994 World Cup-winning Brazilian squad. The t-shirt sparkles with metallic details on the front and back and features a taped vented hem like the actual uniforms do.
Beginning today, the Nike F.C. collection is available online at Nike.com. The collection will see an in-store release on April 17.
