English Premier League relegation battle survival specialists Sunderland AFC today released their adidas home kit for the 2015/16 season (their eight consecutive in England’s top tier of football).
According to a release from The Black Cats: As always, the shirt (available at UK Soccer Shop in the coming weeks.) features Sunderland’s famous red and white stripes, but has been given a modern twist this season by sportswear giant adidas’ cutting edge design team. As one of the world’s leading sportswear manufacturers, adidas are renowned for their quality and innovation in kit design.
In a departure from recent kits, the 2015-16 shirt uses white as the base colour, making the traditional stripes stand out. Adding a modern twist to the garment, there is black meshing detail on the collar, sleeves and hem of the garment and this is complemented by the iconic three stripes of adidas, and finished neatly with red detailing.
Embedded with adidas climacool performance technology, providing a breathable kit on the pitch, the shirt bears the name of the club’s new principal partner Dafabet. This logo will not feature on junior shirts however, due to Premier League regulations.
The shorts are traditional black, set off by a red trim and adidas detailing and the socks are black with a red trim.
