Nike And AIK Outdo Themselves Again With Stunning White And Gold Kit

Name a more iconic duo than Nike and Swedish club AIK. We'll wait.

You'll remember that last year AIK and Nike partnered to bring out two stunning kits that went viral, with the AIK website crashing when they released a sharp blackout kit in honour of the 1901 team, who won the league title.

<p "="">Not resting on their laurels, they followed it up with another rapid release - this time a wonderful white kit in tribute to the club's 1900 team, who won the Swedish title for the first time in their history.

<p "="">A year on, they produced again with the '1891 AIK Black Edition jersey', which marks the formation of the club 128 years ago.

The limited edition product (128 units) worn by the likes of Sebastian Larsson and Joel Ekstrand in pre-season games sold out in a remarkable two minutes.

But there's been another Nike-AIK link-up and it could be the best yet.

For their upcoming pre-season friendly with New York FC as part of a pre-season tour of Dubai, the Swedish champions have added another beauty to the collection with the imminent release of the 1891 White Edition shirt.

The shirt features the club crest, the 1891 date in place of the club main sponsor and Nike' signature Swoosh logo in Gold - paying homage to AIK's beginnings.

Again, demand for the shirts is bound to be extremely popular - with only 128 White/Gold limited edition shirts produced and presented in a premium white and gold box.

As with the blackout jersey, all proceeds are going towards the 'AIK Fotbal Mentor' programme - which is helping working against segregation by uniting local Stockholm youngsters through the beautiful game.

Fans wanting to get their hands on the shirt can purchase the product from the club's official store or Pro Direct Soccer from 2pm GMT on Sunday 10th February 2019.

Expect both websites to crash as soon as it's launch time...
