New Balance and AS Roma Release The Legacy Collection
New Balance pays tribute to the origins of AS Roma in The Legacy Collection. Founded in 1927, when manager Italo Foschi initiated a merger between three locals clubs, Roman FC, Fortitudo-Pro Roma SGS and SS Alba-Audace, the sportswear company highlights the latter team's traditional color scheme through a tasteful capsule of goods.
Instead of Roma's carmine red and golden yellow identity, the collection sports an elegant green colorway with a horizontal white band across the chest of the kit. Details include graphics on the neck and sleeves, as well as a sleek branding pattern that adorns both the base of the jersey and training top. Rounding the collection out is a special holographic crest, that shifts from a retro-inspired monogram to the club's current logomark, atop two jersey styles — elite ($117 USD) for a more technical garment and regular ($96 USD) for a looser fit.
The Legacy Collection is now available at AS Roma's webstore.
