It was only a few days back that Liverpool had revisited memories from their tenure between 1988/89 to 2001/03 by launching their new historic kit collection and the Merseyside club has come up with a new limited edition collection, which they calling “Blackout Shirt”.
This Blackout Shirt is basically their home kit of the season, consisting a polo collar – but in black, including the club’s crest as well as the sponsor – with ‘linear jacquard stripes’. And as Liverpool’s website quotes, “the shirt is engineered using innovative NB DRY technology, it wicks moisture away from the skin to help keep you fresh and dry.”
As the Evening Standard quotes, the kit will never be worn by the players on the field, as it is actually a limited edition collection. It is safe to say Liverpool’s shirt sponsors New Balance are taking the criticism they received for the bold purple away kit and the grey ‘European’ kit way too seriously.
And they are making amends for that. Costing at around £75, the club says the shirt is ‘inspired by the landmark architecture of the redeveloped Main Stand’.
Liverpool have been keeping their fans absolutely amazed of late. Apart from launching the LFC 247 sneakers (which carried a combination of purple, white and orange) recently, the club came up with a new AW18 collection with ’47. The collection comprised of winter collections such as caps and scarfs.
