Story of the shirt:

This beautiful all cream Italy away shirt was famously worn by the Azzuri in the final of Euro 2000 against France. The design, dubbed 'Kombat' and brand new at the time, was the result of Kappa's extensive research project on how to improve the performance of athletes. After finally securing the rights to produce the Italian national side's shirts, the design drew inspiration from the world of surfing and wetsuits, utilising advances in materials technology to create a skin tight, elasticated shirt that apparently made players more nimble and offered protection against opponents' shirt pulling. It was most certainly a departure from the classic oversized trend of the 90s. As we all know, the team lost the Euro 2000 final to France after David Trezeguet's 103rd minute golden-goal, but the Kombat design lives on to this very day.
