Iker Casillas shirts on sale at the FC Porto club shop
The shirts are available for 77 euro or 98 euro with the goalkeeper’s name and number 12.
Yesterday was the first day that Porto commercialized Iker Casillas replica shirts in the club shop. At 1000 am, the shirts were highly visible in the store which is strategically situated beside the club museum. Three versions are available, a black and navy shirt a violet and yellow version and also a plain white version.
The shirts have a retail Price of 77 euro and increase to 98 euro if the shirt bears the name and number of the new club goalkeeper. When AS was present in the club shop we were informed that “hundreds” of shirts had been sold that very same morning with the Casillas name, who is clearly set to become an icon for the supporters of ‘Os Dragoes’.
One detail that Casillas wasn’t happy with is that there are no short sleeved versions to date of the new goalkeeper shirt. During his first few seasons at Real Madrid, Casillas was forced to cut the arms of his shirts until Adidas started to manufacture a short sleeve version of the goalkeeping shirt, something that will no doubt be addressed by new FC Porto kit supplier, New Balance.
