New Balance have unveiled Liverpool’s away kit for the 2015-16 season.
The Reds’ kit suppliers have developed a classic and predominantly white aesthetic; a look that has often accompanied the many successes experienced on the road for Liverpool FC since 1892. A gradient mesh jacquard offering depth and perspective decorates the body, while strong accents of red in the collar, crests and taping to sleeves complete the LFC message.
The silicone taping offers a full 360 degrees read, drawing the eye to the contours of the player’s body, also featuring on the shorts and socks. The jersey has been re-imagined using darting/articulation to replace any un-necessary seaming with the purpose of anti abrasion. Attention to detail has also be paid to finishing, with bonded re-enforcement prints used to stabilise and strengthen key areas, and a club sign off engineered into the centre back hem of the jersey.
Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge said: “The New Balance away kit looks great and the team are aware of past years where the Club has had many successes wearing white away kits. Hopefully this kit can bring us luck away from home next season.”
The kit incorporates NB Dry, technology that helps keep the body cool and dry whilst being active. The moisture wicking fabric releases moisture away from the body, making it fast drying, and it is anatomically fitted to form around the player’s body shape for ease of movement. Finished with mesh panelling under the arms, the design aims to help airflow around the body. Twin needle stitching runs around the circumference of the shirts hem and twin heat transfer tipping to the cuff gives a seam-free finish and to prevent abrasion.
