It's official! arrives at TwoFive a new line honoring a historic event; the United States World Cup '94. New collection with a vintage touch that wants to honor the first great football event that was lived on American soil.
This new line reaches TwoFive hand in hand with two PRO models that are named after two of the great venues of the event: Los Angeles '94 y New York'94.
Shall we review a little the history of this event and these venues?
Glove Los Angeles '94 honors the Rose Bowl, a stadium that hosted the matches in Angelino territory. In the Rose Bowl, a stadium with a capacity for 92.600 people (the stadium with the largest capacity in the 94 World Cup) part of the Group A (Romania, Switzerland, United States and Colombia) and Group B (Brazil, Sweden, Russia and Cameroon) matches were played ). The first match played in that stadium was Colombia 1-3 Romania with a spectacular performance by Răducioiu, Milan's Romanian striker.
In addition, in Los Angeles the World Cup final was played in an exciting match between Brazil and Italy that ended up being decided on penalties with Roberto Baggio's last mistake in the fifth penalty that gave victory to the Brazilian team. In this batch we were lucky enough to see two great goalkeepers in action; Taffarel (Brazil) and Pagliuca (Italy).
Regarding the model New York'94, this honors the Giants Stadium, a stadium that hosted the matches on New York soil. The Giants Stadium, was the headquarters for the teams of Group E (Mexico, Ireland, Italy and Norway) and Group F (Holland, Saudi Arabia, Belgium and Morocco). In this venue we were able to see Jorge Campos play, the legendary Mexican goalkeeper who dazzled with his striking kit in the 94 World Cup. It was in an exciting Mexico vs Bulgaria round of 3 in which the European team eliminated the Mexicans in a round of penalties in which the Bulgarian goalkeeper Borislav Mikhailov stood out, who stopped up to XNUMX penalties.
The design of both models honors the kits of Jorge Campos and other goalkeepers of the event, thus recalling a very "vintage" aesthetic that will go down in World Cup history. In this way, lines and colors very much from the nineties have been used, reminiscent of the sports aesthetics of the moment.
Regarding the technical specifications, both models are mounted in cut ErgoRoll and they use palm ContactGrip maximum grip. The back uses natural latex that provides a great feeling of comfort for the hand inside the glove. Furthermore, with technology Anti-Slip, micromovements of the hand are avoided. The closure uses the technology Traditional Latex Strap with a customization window.
