A sweatshirt with a unique zip
Chest traps are a classic part of football. And catching the ball on your sweatshirt's zip is a classic pain.
So to give you something that's more suited to your sport, we have placed the T500's half zip on the side of the collar.
Even with the zip open, your collar stays in place.
The result? Less discomfort as you play... and no excuses if you mess up your chest trap!
Check out the design of the T500 sweatshirt, created with football in mind:
As well as testing products themselves on the Kipstadium pitches in Tourcoing, our design team also watched footballers on the pitch to help them come up with this T500 sweatshirt. It certainly gave them a few ideas!
For example? Laser Cut technology was used to create micro vents on the back and under the arms. These vents improve ventilation and help wick away perspiration
Let's talk aesthetics, feel and design:
To give you the best freedom of movement, we have designed this product with a close-fitting cut.
The new elegant, intuitive thumb loops keep your hands warm while still letting you move around. And if you don't use them, they're invisible in the sleeves.
The honeycomb fabric on the sleeves, thumb holes and down the sides gives a very technical, colourful visual effect as well as protecting you and making the sweatshirt longer lasting.
Julien, designer and footballer, tells us about the T500:
"It all started with this desire to move the zip and have a shifted half-zip, with maximum comfort for chest traps while also protecting the neck from the cold. The other challenge was to make the thumb loop an option. If you don't use it, it's invisible in the sleeve. Lastly, the honeycomb fabric reacts to the player's movements: visually it looks right at home. You feel good wearing it, a bit like a superhero."
