Heart of Midlothian Football Club will once again wear Umbro kits following runs with adidas and PUMA. The four-time Scottish Premiership champions last donned the famous diamonds of the Manchester sportswear firm during their Scottish Cup winning season of 2011/12. Here is a look at the Hearts 2017/18 Umbro home kit (now on sale at UK Soccer Shop).
According to the club website: The 17/18 Heart of Midlothian home shirt sees the reintroduction of the famous running diamond to the kit. First introduced in 1977, it was an iconic staple to Umbro jerseys for decades. Forty years after its first introduction, the taping returns as a visual statement, now knitted into the body of the shirt using a lightweight jacquard technology removing weight and distraction for the player.
The design is based on a modern reinterpretation of the jersey Umbro designed for the club in 1977, with traditional color blocking accentuated with a smart collar construction to create a modern day classic. The reverse neck of the shirt features a connection to the famous club mosaic and the motto of the Club Museum – “This is our story, this is our song”.
