Kit News | Everton’s New Away Kit for 16/17 Season by Umbro
The new Everton away strip is a modern design inspired by two colours from one of Everton’s most historic kits – the striking dark navy and salmon trim strip is a nod to the 1890/91 season when the Toffee’s captured their first ever league crown.
The lightweight jersey is predominantly dark navy with a salmon colour on the inside layer offering a striking visual contrast. The eye-catching salmon also features on the cuffs and V-neck part rib collar.
Diamond mesh technology on the main body of the shirt aids breathability, along with under-arm panels aid ventilation and movement.
Accompanying the jersey, the dark navy shorts have a tailored silhouette with a reduced volume waistband offering optimum comfort and fit. Contrast back detailing in salmon features alongside the Club and Umbro logos.
The dark navy socks feature a contrast salmon hoop and Umbro logo with a cotton footbed provides optimum comfort for 90 minutes and beyond.
Like this season’s home strip, the away shirt celebrates the Club’s historic ground and includes the co-ordinates of Goodison Park inside the neck of the shirt.
The iconic signature of Archibald Leitch’s criss-cross architectural design also features, with Umbro including a Leitch-style graphic above the co-ordinates, so fans and players will have a piece of home with them wherever they go.
Speaking about the new away strip, Everton winger Gerard Deulofeu said: “I feel very confident in this kit and cannot wait for the new season to be able to wear it. The design is nice and I really like it. Deulofeu jokingly added: “I hope to see the fans with my name on their shirts next season!”
Everton’s 2016/17 away kit is available to pre-order now* in men’s, women’s, juniors, infants and babies’ sizes. It will go on sale on 22nd July.
