According to Nike's PR director, women's jerseys with regular necklines will be "available at a later date." 

 

Bad form, Nike.  Bad form, US Soccer.

 

Adidas has been just as bad, but there's an indication that it need not be this way.

 

 

 

If they can make one, they can make more.

Im glad to hear it, and wih Adidas would do the same.

 

I have no problems wearing a womens cut jersey at all, but nothing with the plunging neck line. (wish they had a mens cut for the WNT, but besides the point).

 

Now I can only hope that France makes a jersey without the star, so I can finally get a Le Sommer jersey without the star(as the women wear on field)

I wish the back numbers didn't have any outlining; the font is strong enough to stand alone.

Agreed. Especially since the numbers on the front don't have the outline. On the previous kits it didn't stand out as much as these do.

They did for the World Cup jerseys last year. Sadly, the customization wasn't authentic.

 

Regardless, though, I was happy to finally have a WNT jersey.

depends where you get it from, honestly. And to be fair, i do like how the womens jerseys fit, no problem at all with them. 

 

Just refuse to wear a plunging hemline. Or, to be a lot more fair, refuse to wear anything that isnt what they players are wearing on field.

 

Just need to remember to order a size up from what mens jerseys are.

With all the bad publicity adidas got lsst year when United's female fans protested, why roll these out? Yes, there are some females that will want these but the majority want their jerseys to look as close to the team's jerseys as possible.  It's just not a smart move by Nike.

A few years ago Adidas made jerseys for all MLS teams that were cut for a woman's body but included a fairly normal neckline -- the tradeoff was that they used a generic template instead of each team's bespoke look (see below). 

 

Now Adidas makes women's versions of the "real" thing except assuming that women are looking to show cleavage at the stadium.

 

Not sure why this is so difficult.

Teams can presumably "opt out" of the plunging necklines - NYCFC heard from the fans last year, and this year they're the only team to have a (relatively) normal V-neck women's jersey. 

pictures for comparison (both replicas, for the most fair comparison)

The sea of current Nike looks seems plain lazy. This is what happens when you have one centralized group create everything. Seems they are intent on making a one-world Nike brand rather than individual brands for each country.

Holland wore black armbands as well as Cruyff's number 14 on their kits today. Other than MLS teams I've not seen memorial patches worn on soccer jerseys, not counting the poppy appeal that's worn in the EPL.
