Manchester United's Nike apparel line pays homage to No-7

The Manchester United Collection, a new Nike Sportswear apparel range, pays homage to the illustrious history of the Manchester United No. 7 shirt. The flair, leadership and will to win embodied by the club’s No. 7s characterize the off-pitch apparel collection.

Specifically, Manchester United legends including George Best, Bryan Robson, and Eric Cantona inspire the designs.

You could say it’s the winning mentality that unites the great No. 7s — the mentality of a champion, always wanting to win and having that hunger for trophies,” Antonio Valencia, current Manchester United winger, said about the significance of the storied No. 7.

The Best L/S Polo, red with white trim on the crew neck collar and cuffs, recalls the home shirt worn by the European Cup-winning team of 1968. The gingham lining of the black Woven Jacket references the textile industry that helped establish Manchester as a centre of industry in the mid-18th century.

The No. 7 itself takes pride of place on the Covert Vintage Polo, sitting on the chest alongside a Manchester United crest, and the grey Covert Vintage Tri Blend tee proudly bears a gingham No. 7 on the back. Stylish Covert Vintage tees with a retro Manchester United crest compose the rest of the collection.

Every piece of Manchester United Collection apparel has been created with the goal of reflecting the passion and reverence with which Manchester United fans regard the no. 7 shirt, and the range combines a vintage design aesthetic combined with Nike technologies.
