Liverpool Football Club debuted their all black 2015/16 New Balance third kit during Sunday’s season closing 6-1 Premier League loss to Stoke City.
The shirt will be remembered as the last LFC jersey worn by departing team legend Steven Gerrard. It will be on sale at World Soccer Shop, Subside Sports, Kitbag and UK Soccer Shop from today along with The Reds 15/16 NB home kit.
According to New Balance: A fresh approach to a classic look; New Balance’s LFC third kit sees the return of the popular bold black design incorporating a gradient effect that is sure to make the kit stand out next season. Inserted breathable taping incorporating flashes of red and white have been engineered into the shoulder seams and collar ensuring the kit stays true to the heritage and prestige of LFC.
A lifestyle inspired polo collar with semi-concealed two-button placket and two-way reverse tipping allows wearers to customise how the collar is worn, whilst always promoting the club colours.
The main body of the shirt is constructed with New Balance’s moisture wicking fabric, NB Dry, which helps keep the player cool on the pitch by releasing moisture away from the body, making it fast-drying.
The kit is anatomically fitted to form around the player’s body shape for ease of movement. Mesh panelling under the arms helps airflow around the body and is crucial in keeping the players comfortable during games.
The goalkeeper shirt takes inspiration from the kit worn by Bruce Grobbelaar, during Liverpool FC’s European campaign in 1984-85. The iconic yellow colour is restored and enhanced with the latest in shirt technology featuring articulated elbow panels allowing for increased movement.
