Last night we revealed the new Everton 2017/18 home kit – here’s a closer look at what the Blues will be wearing at Goodison next season.
The shirt features a modern twist on Umbro’s classic running diamond graphic on the sleeves, a design element which first featured on football shirts forty years ago. This ‘diamond taping’ has grown to become an iconic part of football culture, with fans of many clubs including Everton often calling for it to return to Umbro designs. It does so here in a stylish tonal adaptation that updates the classic diamond taping for the modern game.
Also featured on the shirt is a Dixie Dean motif on the back of the neck – as chosen by Evertonians earlier this season in a fan vote through the Club’s official Fans’ Forum.
The white shorts also have a running diamond graphic which features on contrast side panels and the woven fabric offers extra movement and an improved fit. The white performance socks have a comfortable cotton footbed and a contrast blue stripe with the Umbro logo to complete the kit.
The Blues’ new home strip is available to pre-order now at Everton Direct and is on sale from 8thJune.
