White remains FC Shakhtar's key away kit color. This season, the kit features a distinctive wide orange stripe running down the left side of the jersey with a similar stripe is on the right sleeve. The jerseys have a classical design with a collarless  neckline. The away shorts and socks  are also white, completing the look. Additional kit graphics accentuate its individuality, including  the team’s name on the jersey and the shorts, as well as FCSD abbreviation written on the socks.

While producing the new kit, Nike designers have used the latest innovative technologies which help players to perform at their best. The kits are made of 23% lighter fabric with 20% stronger knit structure than the Nike’s previous kits and feature Nike Dri-FIT technology to wick moisture away from athletes to help keep them cool and dry on-pitch. The glued T-type conjunctions in the shoulder area strengthen the stitches, which take the biggest pressure during sharp moves at the field.

The new kit is made from Nike's recycled polyester, making them Nike's most environmentally friendly kit ever produced.  Each kit (jersey and shorts) is made using up to 13 recycled plastic water bottles.  This manufacturing process reduces energy consumption by up to 30% compared to manufacturing virgin polyester.  Since 2010, Nike has used an estimated 115 million recycled plastic bottles to create its high performance kits.
