Everton and Umbro have revealed the Club’s new home kit for the 2017/18 season.
The new design sees the Club return to the classic Umbro diamond graphic running down the sleeves and a contrasting diamond pattern featuring on the side of the shorts, combining the spirit of the past with the excitement of the future.
The kit has been unveiled in a campaign entitled 'Together Blue' - celebrating the strong local contingent of players in the Everton squad. The #TogetherBlue campaign was inspired by the legacy of Dixie Dean, a local player, Evertonian and Club legend who scored an astonishing 383 goals in his 12 years at Goodison Park, including an unbeaten 60 league strikes in a single campaign.
In honour of this, the design includes 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.
Designed to aid performance, the ‘pique fabric’ on the main body of the shirt offers a classic look, comfort and durability for the players while the ergonomically structured mesh in the underarm area helps with breathability.
The white shorts also have a running diamond graphic which features in 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.
