Romance FC is a creative football collective who play in and around Hackney, East London. Founded in 2012, the team is an open-minded mix of talent. On the pitch, they are stern defenders and shrewd attackers. Off the pitch, they are filmmakers, DJ’s, coders and artists – producing events and creating spaces, embracing the mantra, “ you can’t rise unless you lift others up with you ”.
After spending many evenings playing under the East London skies of Hackney Downs, the team pays homage to the place that is close to their hearts. Designed by Romance FC’s Aimee Capstick, the kit takes inspiration from classic football shirts from the 80’s and 90’s, with a modern colour gradient twist. Using subtle geometric patterns and shapes alluding to the designs of this era, mixed with ombre tones, the result is a perfect combination of new and old.
The shirt features two custom fonts designed especially for Romance FC, that contrasts with shirts base patterns for a sense of movement.
Each shirt not only looks good but also features key technical qualities such as Nike Dri-FIT fabric for a comfortable fit, ventilated side seams for breathability and raglan sleeves for ease of movement.
The collaboration between Romance FC and Nike Football is one of the first to come from the Nike By You Collaboration Programme. This is the latest service to launch from the sports brand enabling creativity and the opportunity to showcase your own team within the Jersey Shop.
The Romance FC x Nike kit is available in two eye-catching colourways; a short sleeve pink/purple ombre shirt and a long sleeve mint/peach ombre alternative.
Both shirts are available to purchase directly from the Nike.com Jersey Shop here.
