Japan's national team announced itself as a world soccer power when it qualified for the sport's top international tournament for the first time in 1998. Featuring a newly designed badge, this men's jersey celebrates traditional Japanese craftsmanship through its distinctive design. A replica of the home shirt the current Japan squad wears, it has sweat-wicking fabric and a slightly looser cut for fan comfort. The national badge is woven on the chest. adidas is dedicated to creating products in ways that minimize their environmental impact.
