New Balance has officially released the special edition of the Liverpool FC 2017/18 away jersey. The shirt has been launched as part of the ‘Pure Liverpool FC’ campaign for the 2017/18 season celebrating the Club’s 125th anniversary.
Inspired by Liverpool FC’s first ever strip worn 125 years ago in 1892, this special edition away kit incorporates the original light blue and white from the Club’s earliest shirt, updated with a quartered pin stripe repeat. The special edition jersey is in line with the design theme for LFC’s 2017/18 home and away shirts with the use of key iconic kit details from LFC’s rich history. In recognition of this date a limited run of only 1892 shirts will be made available worldwide, each embossed with the special 125th anniversary crest, a feature on all kits in the 2017/18 New Balance LFC kit collection.
The New Balance design team has taken the design inspiration of the 1892 kit whilst incorporating modern techniques and the latest in New Balance kit technology.
Tested at Loughborough University’s world leading Sports Technology Institute, the kit features a unique combination of bonded vents and zonal mesh structures to provide advanced cooling and performance benefits. The kit incorporates moisture-activated laser cut vents in the under-arm regions that open in response to increased perspiration by the player. The shirt also includes an innovative cage-design with engineered zonal mesh structures to provide targeted air flow and a supportive fit.
To commemorate the tragic events of Hillsborough, the 96 emblem, encased by the eternal flames, sits at the nape of the neck.
