Everton launch new third kit

Wednesday, 26 August, 2020 50comments  |  Jump to last
Everton have unveiled the third and final strip for the new season, a “seafoam” green number with charcoal grey shorts.

The kit, unveiled by players from Everton's disability football teams,  features  hummel's chevrons in charcoal across the shoulders and sleeves, charcoal piping on the sleeves and an “1878” detail on the back-of- neck.

The design complements the style of the record-selling 2020-21 home and away strips.

The charcoal shorts feature the  hummel  chevrons in seafoam contrast on the outer leg. The kit is completed with seafoam socks  featuring  charcoal chevrons on the front. 

Both the shirt and shorts are finished with a tonal badge detail.  According to the press release, the seafoam colour is a nod to Liverpool's waterfront, while the charcoal creates a  contemporary  contrast.  

The goalkeeper's  third  kit  is black and gold, continuing the “soundwave” design from the home and away kits and only available in short sleeves.  

The goalkeeper's third kit is black with gold detailing

The  2020/21 Everton  humml  third kit available to order vi a evertondirect.com  from 8am on Wednesday 26 August or to buy in store at Everton One and Everton Two from 10am on the same day.

Prefer the goalkeeper's one to the outfield one. Should swap them around.

Great home and away shirt, not too stuck on the third one though.

That is a new level of vile. Seafoam? More like frog puke. Goalie's kit is okay though, apart from the soundwave crap.

Seafoam green for the styrofoam midfielder...

A shirt to stroll around and look languid in, if ever I saw one.

I thought the home kit looked great in action. You can't be sure on a kit until you see the whole team in it, during a game. Maybe this one will look better once we see it on the pitch. Anyway, it's only the 3rd kit so we'll barely wear it.

This green kit would be perfect for Sigurdsson as it'll allow him to go 'missing' for even longer periods of the game! :)

What are they supposed to do? Lie down in the penalty area and make like a lump in the turf then leap up and surprise the opposition.

Love the blue and the amber, this is truly awful.

Steve @ 5 - I think we might be hearing a lot of that this season; terrible performance but the kit looked great!

Navy, black, charcoal, white but not this. I know the thing for third kits these days is off-beat colours but this is thoroughly revolting, a milky green, like mint ice cream or mousse (neither of which product I can buy here in Latvia, to my great distress). It also parallels the luminosities on the away kit (bright shirt, darker shorts), which is a no-no.

The green, grass-like, camouflage colour may make some of our players disappear on the pitch.....

I've said this before. Don't buy it. No team needs a 3rd kit. It's a ploy to get misguided fans to spend money on overpriced advertising.

Everton play in Blue. It is occasionally necessary to change when there is a clash. Anything else is nothing more than a money-grubbing exercise by kit manufacturers and sponsors.

Our Amber kit won't clash with anything that clashes with the Blue one. So, if people refuse to buy 3rd choice kits clubs will eventually stop trying to push them on to us.

As long as there are people who seem to have more money than sense, then this disease will continue to spread.

Shocking colour.

Tony @10. Ah that explains it – Sigurdsson was secretly trialling it all last season.

You'd think they'd want it to look decent if they want people to buy it.

On the plus side, it could give us an advantage with VAR, both in attack and defence, all we need is players to wear green boots and VAR will be stuffed.
Michael Nisbet
17 Posted 26/08/2020 at 16:24:40
I like it...

But I agree with Martin (11). 3rd kits are nothing but a money grabbing exercise and should be banned by Fifa.

Oh, I thought I'd accidentally got to the page where the SAS are demonstrating their new ghillie suit so that they can lie in a field entirely undetected for days.

Does no-one at the club remember when Man Utd played half a match in grey and the players could not see one another. Well, in my opinion, this dysentery green is one stage worse.

2 out of 3 kits is acceptable I guess.

Let’s pray this doesn’t get many outings. Truly awful colour kit.

I think it's brilliant, green is one of my favourite colours along with blue and purple. I would describe it more as a pastel green.

The slight downside is the vertical pale / off-white vertical stripes. I hope they are less noticeable in real life, they are simply not needed and do nothing for me.

Loved the home kit, I don't like the away kit colour, I'm not a fan of amber, yellow or orange kits unless you're Brazil or Holland.

Yes its all a marketing ploy but our 3rd kits have been out nicest kits over the last 8 years, just a shame they are not the away kit as we hardly ever play in our 3rd kits.

Along with a stadium update, it's the first time I've heard any positive Everton news.

Roll on Messi to Everton transfer news.

The keeper's kit looks great without Pickford in it!

It's the way to go.

I don't recall us having a green kit at all previously, but I think it's an interesting change. And you never know until players get decked out in the kit.

Last season's dark navy blue 3rd kit, was quite non-descript. The colour, in and of itself, can be classy. But when the players are decked out fully in it, it looks like some training kit of sorts. Perhaps it's the fact both shirt and shorts were of the same dark navy blue colour.

For the second kit, the typical yellow/amber, when was the last time we had both shirt and shorts yellow/amber? I think it's our last title winning season. That's worth a shot, but somehow when we have had yellow tops in the past few years, we always had dark shorts.

The Seafoam green hues offset the antique ivory trim and accentuate the summer chestnut browns and alpine grays that cascade over the Goodison Park terraces. Look forward to the players accessorizing with Italian leather satchels, 3” heels and Boas for the cool night games.

Jesus Murphy... drop the third kit and buy an engine for the midfield.

I would like the away shirt and the 3rd kit to have different design like it used to, not just different colour.
Mike Keating

Michael @17 – all New kits are part of a money grabbing exercise; that's why they redesign them every year.

I seem to recall the FA trying to prevent the fans being ripped off by the clubs in this way following a PR gaff at Newcastle but nothing came of it.

The puzzling question is why the fans fall for it.

Be careful though – last time I said something about fans queuing up to be mugged, my loyalty to the Blues was called into question... when, to me, it's a question of club loyalty to its fans.

A little strange and l don't see us wearing it once... green and black leaves the ref dressed in yellow or red. I don't mind it so much, might look good on. Probably prefer the black one.

I'm pretty sure all clubs have 3 kits, don't they?

Trendy office wall colour. Fail.

As said above, third kits are mostly just business.

In order to find something positive to say, I can report that I quite like the hummel coat hangers.
Mike Gaynes

Umm 60 years ago my mom had a car that color. It didn't run very well. Or for very long.

Yuck.

But I'm with ya, Jamie -- the hummel hangers are way cool.

In these days of political correctness it may be that for every orange there must be a green. Has any heritage society objected to it not being Victorian blue?

We haven't signed anyone even though we have just finished in our lowest position since 2003-04 and we have the worst squad in living memory.

Although our chums in the media are doing a great job inventing players we could be linked with but almost certainly won't sign...

We haven't got a new ground and we won't probably be getting one ever.

But we have an utterly pointless 3rd kit.

Great news.

“Jesus Murphy... drop the third kit and buy an engine for the midfield.”

It’s nauseating, the color and the concept. Third kits are an addendum to a contract. They must be worn ‘x’ times, regardless of color clash. A money making exercise to extract money from people who feel under pressure on the lot for their kids.

Nathan Jones
47 Posted 28/08/2020 at 09:48:38
Hmmmm... I'm not sure about this, but I'm also disappointed about the effort put into the launch. I liked the last green kit we had, a dark green with orange badge and Chang. I think the only time we wore it we beat Southampton 3-0, so happy memories.

I also remember and impressive launch with the players drawn like comic book heroes. Here, they have just hung the kit on a pole. But what would really improve it would be it being worn buy our new midfielders!

Ernie Baywood
49 Posted 28/08/2020 at 16:04:15
Third kits used to just be something a bit different that the kids liked. Different design, cooler colours.

This is just the exact same kit in a colour no-one could possibly want?

Weird choice and I'll give it the tag of the worst kit we've ever released.

Simon Dalzell

Insipid, disgusting, Must be close to the worst ever. Diarrhea green was never gonna work. (Although I suppose it reflects our teams efforts for some time.)

Agree with Grant (#1) they should swap them round. Also agree with Mike Keating (26) there is no practical need and serves the interests of the supplier rather than club or fan.

If going to have a third kit then should really make some kind of radical statement about the club or noble cause rather than small time mediocrity rag trade off-cut.
