Away kit to be revealed on Friday

23/07/2014  Comments (31)  jump
Everton will unveil the 2014-15 away kit this Friday after revealing a teaser graphic featuring black fabric.

Depending on what colours are assigned to the teams when the Blues face off against Leicester City in Bangkok, the new change strip could be worn as early as Sunday but it will get its official airing against the Foxes on the opening day on 16th August.

The club have tended to alternate between amber or yellow and black in recent years which would make a black number likely this season.

I liked the last black away kit.

Suitable colour in light of the current mood among many posters.

Some stat says bright colours and white socks win the most trophies. Guess it's easier to spot a team-mate. Last night at Prenton Park, some of our lads were almost invisible.

Personally I hate Black Kits. Black Kits should only be worn by Refs and Linesmen. The Yellow and Blue and Cream and Blue are far nicer IMHO. I would even go for an Orange and Blue a bit like the Dutch away kit that is nice but Black is just plain unimaginative.

I really thought it would be purple.

Was watching highlights of our 84 85 title winning season last night. When we had the silver kit we wore against Chelsea. I loved that. Also loved the yellow one of that season just hope we get some quality in to model it. Because this lack of activity is doing my head in.

I also think black kits should never have been allowed, but once the FA let the refs wear green I suppose it was a case of anything goes.
We normally have smart kits though so I am not worried about the colour/design and I am sure the likes of Lukaku and Perisic will look great in it! Won't they?

James #5, purple would have been good this time round.
I've got a purple shirt that was a limited edition type one a few years back.. It's decent.
But hey, what do I know, I liked the pink one !

The away kit will be purple... Has nobody else cottoned on to half the squad wearing purple training kits??

Amber blue amber for me, as in 69-70.

Should neither the royal blue or amber suit, I cannot think of a club which has a mixture of royal blue and amber, and a third kit is required then white blue white such as the Kejan kit about 10 years ago. Personally, I think that third kits never get worn thereby never sell or they only get used two/three times a season in order to sell some. A complete waste of time.

Lad in work showed me a picture of the potential away kit about 4 or 5 weeks ago. Hope to God it's not the real one. It was shocking pink with navy shorts and pink socks.

I bet we wished we had an away strip like this!

Quote: This was due to be a pre-season kit but following the positive response from the clubs supporters Cultural y Deportiva Leonesa are rumoured to have named it their away kit for 2014-15 which is traditionally black anyway.

You are not serious about the "positive response from the clubs supporters" - you ARE????

Last seasons badge would look good on that shirt :)

All black, amber or white are fine for an away kit as long as the design is good. This season, particularly with having the old-style look of the new home kit., I would have liked to've seen a white away top with white colors and black shorts with black socks, as plain looking as possible.

The new kit is all black with a thin white stripe under the arm. Not great really.

Amber and Royal Blue for me (sat in pub wearing the ’66 Cup Shirt!). The late 90s third shirt was foooking cool, white with blue trim. 1982 away was boss too... both made by Umbro!

Received the new home youth kit and SB jersey. The umbro 6/7 yrs size shorts are even smaller than the 4/5 yrs LCQ equivalent. The home kit looks like last season's manure kit but in dark blue. My lads put the kits on and white socks goes better in my opinion, the new socks are almost black.

Don't forget there will be a third kit too! Maybe they're saving the purple for that one? I think it's more likely that the purple is a training thing only though, I can't remember the training kit having had any influence on the matchday colours in the past?

Black kit might not look so good on the pitch but as a grown man I would be more likely to wear it out and about than I would some bright garish design... last years away kit for example.

I like black kits, and this one is black.

I like it. Much better than some of the garish crap you see other away teams wearing. Have any of you seen the offering the RS have got to wear away from Mordor next year? Small mercies, gents. Suck it up!

As I stated earlier Black Kits are for Refs and this one is dull and boring beyond belief. I must say I am very underwhelmed with the New Badge and merchandise that is coming through at the moment. I normally buy anything with Everton on it but this latest stuff in very uninspriring and the two tone 'Everton' on some of the merchandising is as bad as the black kit. Looks like it will be two years for me without buying anything. Am I alone in this or am I just becoming a miserable old man. I think the whole Umbro and Kit Bag thing just seems like we have been left behind again.

I wouldn't normally comment on kits, as they are too expensive for an item of clothing I would only ever wear to a match anyway, I am underwhelmed though. Both, but particularly the away shirt smack me as boring and not the sort of things that are the bespoke offerings that fans were promised.

Similarly the other merchandise, leisure and training wear which I am more likely to buy is also rubbish. Looks very bargain basement. umbro are doing nothing to change the perceptions of them as a brand. Boring, bargain and undesirable.

The 2012-13 black kit looked good because it was very elegant and somewhat authoritative. This one without the collar and with shiny fabric truly looks like something the ref would wear. I should know, I used to be one and wear something very similar, including the socks.

Disappointing after the excellent home kit.

No, don't like it, very disappointing compared to the home strip! White shirts/ black shorts a la Dixie would have been classier.

What a dull kit! Please return to the White & Blue style in 2015/16

It's not amazing, but not terrible either. Just OK.

It looks ok, but what's with the 'hard man' pose of Ossie, when he would beat his way out of a fog?

Had a proper look now, it’s OK but not nearly as good as Nike’s all black effort, still... what I expect from Umbro: average.

We’ve been with Umbro for so long, it seems like there are as many bad kits as there are good whereas with Puma, Le Coq and Nike, almost all were decent.

Ignoring the retro 80s homeshirt, I have to say Le Coq have produced the best home kits in recent times, the round neck which was followed by the blue collar design were both class but my favourite away kits have been the Le Coq Vanilla kit and Nike’s all black and alternative white top during the same season. Oh ...and the amber Puma kit that sent Ferguson into full throttle.

It's all done in Photoshop, Dermot.
