After seven years with Umbro, Inter switched to Nike in the summer of 1998 and it is a partnership that still endures. The American firm's first kit for the club was as close to a classic as one could hope for.
The white shorts and socks of the second kit were used when Inter played away to Udinese - while Juventus also had black shorts and socks that season, Inter's strip was unchanged for the Derby d'Italia.
Nike's first change kit for Inter was a beauty, referencing the 1960s away style with blue and black horizontal bars. One curiosity was the fact that the swoosh logo was rendered in yellow on the shirt, blue on the shorts and black on the socks.

Nike gave Inter an unusual but not-unattractive third shirt in a muted shade of blue-grey with a black panel across the front, trimmed in white. There were no third shorts or socks - the away set were used with the home socks against Parma.
Against Lazio and Vicenza, Inter used the home shorts and socks with the third shirt. Having given Ronaldo his number 9 shirt, Iván Zamorano switched to 18 but put a plus sign between the digits.
