Nike unveiled the new Nike Vapor away kit this week saying that it comes with "AeroSwift technology blends the iconic red and blue colours of the home kit to produce a unique and bold new purple away kit for the 2016-17 season."

According to Nike, engineered knit zones on the chest create a geometric pattern that enhances fit with smaller mesh shapes at the bottom of the graphic.

  • The sleeves and the upper back have been infused with black to produce a darker purple
  • On the collar, "Barça" is knit alongside a small woven Catalan flag, the Senyera. "Un Crit" and “Valen,” which together mean “Our Cry is Bold” in Catalan
  • The sides of the kit feature a pink stripe detail that run the length of the shirt to the purple shorts, which expands with player movement for greater ventilation
