The United States Soccer Federation unveiled the new primary kits for its senior National Teams on Monday.

The white jerseys, which feature a two button collar and thin, horizontal gray stripes, will be paired with white shorts that have red vertical side stripes. The socks are white. The kits will be made by longtime supplier Nike.

“It’s always an honor to wear the colors of your country, and this summer we will be hard to miss in an all-white look,” said U.S. Men’s National team captain Clint Dempsey in a statement on ussoccer.com. “We will be traveling all over Brazil, and playing in a lot of different conditions, so the innovative Nike designs will serve us well.”

The U.S. Men’s National Team will debut the new kits on Wednesday, when they play Ukraine in an international friendly in Cyprus.

Monday’s unveiling marked the first time the U.S. has debuted a new look since last March, when the Federation released a jersey that featured white and red horizontal stripes.
