Following our initial reveal of the new Derby County home kit last week, we thought it was time to take a closer look at what the Rams will be wearing as they aim for promotion in the 2014/15 season. Derby and Umbro have a lot of history together, but we didn't want to just look to the past with the club's new kit. Instead, we wanted to create something with links to that fantastic heritage, but which used the latest in modern design and technology to give players the edge on the pitch.
The home shirt features a smart black crew neck collar, with the club crest and Umbro double diamond embroidered in black on the chest.
The lightweight material also features eight laser cut ventilation holes to keep players (and fans!) cool.
The accompanying black shorts have also been crafted with movement in
mind. They have mesh panel inserts to enhance breathability and a shaped
inseam to offer a fitted shape - essentially allowing the wearer to
concentrate on their game. The club crest and Umbro logo stand out in a
clean white colour.
Completing the kit are white and black socks, which feature anatomical footbeds and Y heels which provide better comfort and fit.
All together, we think that the new Derby County 2014/15 kit is a sharp, smart collection for one of the best teams in the Championship. We can't wait to see it in action when the season kicks off in a few weeks! You can pre-order your kit now through the official online club shop.
