Everton Football Club have revealed their 2017/18 Umbro third kit ahead of their Premier League season opener against Stoke City on Saturday. The new Toffees’ change shirt will be on sale at World Soccer Shop, Kitbag, Subside Sports, Lovell Soccer and UK Soccer Shop along with their previously released 17/18 home and away jerseys.
According to EFC: Similar to the new 2017/18 home and away kits, this strip includes a slimline version of Umbro’s classic diamond graphic running down the sleeves and a Dixie Dean motif on the back of the neck, as chosen by Evertonians through a fan vote last season.
Everton’s 2017/18 third kit is a nod to the Club’s Goodison Park heritage, with the dark blue stripes echoing those seen on the first shirts worn at the famous Goodison Park which celebrates its 125th anniversary this season. The heritage blue panels are contrasted against purple panels to give the shirt a distinctive look.
The tailored shorts and performance socks both compliment the shirt by picking up the blue of the stripes and the contrast yellow accents for the Club crest and Umbro logo. The running diamond motif also features on the yellow taping on the side of the shorts.
To help improve performance on the pitch, Umbro has used a jacquard fabric with ergonomic placed panels. The accompanying shorts have a tailored silhouette and a combination of stretch woven and mesh fabrics for easier movement, while the socks feature separate leg and technical ankle sections.
