This Saturday (4) marks the tenth anniversary of the death of one of the main players in Brazil and Corinthians. Sócrates, the eternal jersey 8 of the São Paulo alvinegro, will be honored with a collection made by Nike in partnership with Corinthians.
The shirts and jacket are marked by special details, such as the main badge, formed by the union of the team’s crest with the image of the player with a clenched fist, and the writing style that refers to that used in the 1980s.
The highlight is the special silhouette of Sócrates with his fists clenched, a historic commemoration of the Corinthians ace, centered on the outline of the team’s shield.
The collection includes items such as the Nike Dri-Fit shirt, the long-sleeve Nike Dri-Fit shirt, the Nike Polo shirt, the Nike jacket and the Nike Corinthians Doutor Sócrates shirt.
“Aligned with Nike’s values, this collection celebrates the history of Sócrates and everything he represents for the team and for Brazilian football. Nike is very proud to be able to pay this tribute to this unique player and bring his inspiring story to fans,” says Gustavo Viana, marketing director at Fisia, official Nike distributor in Brazil.
