Liverpool's new kits rated
Liverpool Echo's Eve Hughes rated Liverpool's kits for the 2018/2019 seasons. How would you rate them?
"Liverpool's 18/19 home kit is perhaps their best and most modern yet. Designed in collaboration with New Balance, this season's shirt is again predominately dark red, but is improved from last season's by the changing of logos from gold to white, which provides a far sleeker finish. The kit also benefits from the return of a collar, which this time features white stripes that lead down towards the shoulders, giving the shirt a feel of classic Liverpool kits whilst still remaining modern.
"Inspiration is taken from the shirts of the 1990s, with a subtle graphic print that will make the shirt more dynamic and better-looking on the pitch. Most importantly, the kit includes the 96 symbol on the upper back, to commemorate the Hillsborough tragedy, which is encased by the eternal flames."
"The away shirt has a more unusual purple design, which works thanks to the subtle graphic pattern on the front of the shirt, based on designer New Balance's global template for this season. Dark purple colours are used on the sleeves and back, to complement the shirt's overall design.
"What makes the shirt stand out is the bright orange colour used on all the shirt's logos, as well as its trim around the collar. 18/19's away kit is rounded off by purple shorts and socks, giving it a bold look that is sure to bring the Reds confidence when playing away from home."
