Everton launch new third kit

Wednesday, 28 July, 2021 37comments  |  Jump to last

Everton's array of kits for the 2021-22 season was completed today with the release of a second change strip, a white number that harks back to one from the 1950s.

Predominantly white with a navy and yellow chevron design down the centre, the strip is a recreation of the away kit from the time of Dave Hickson and earlier in the careers of Bobby Collins and Brian Labone.

The team will wear the new kit for the first time tonight in Orlando when they take on Pumas of Mexico in the second exhibition game of their trip to the United States.

It can be purchased from the Everton One and Everton Two stores or via evertondirect.com.

Makes me think of something Leeds might have worn. Or a zip...
Don't hate it though.

I like that all 3 kits have different pattern and not just different color, that is the main positive for me and I have to say I love the way Everton is treated by hummel, way better than the likes of umbro etc...The design of the 3rd kit is mediocre but overall I like the approach.

I don't think I'm offended but it's not growing on me.

I think without the Hummel tire mark down the middle, I'd have actually preferred a plainer white version.

Phil @ 1, nails it with a giant zip! Won't be rushing to buy that!

Whew. Thank goodness. Another one that I won't feel an urge to spend money on.

I think the jersey from the 1950’s had three single hoops going round the chest, two blue ones with a yellow one in between the blue ones, doubt it was used a lot,rather different to this new kit, if indeed they are referring to the one I described, never been really concerned with the colour of the kits, just how they perform.

As I've said before. DONT BUY IT. That only encourages them.

I can show my support for the team without spending a fortune on replica kits every year.
I want to see Everton play in Blue unless there is a genuine clash with the opposition. There is no need for a third kit unless the 2nd choice has been badly designed,

Here's an image from the Getty Images/PA Images archive of the kit which we wore between 1958 and 1961 (and also in Europe in the 1961-62 season) with the yellow/blue/yellow bands.

As I quipped to someone on Twitter, given that the new one looks like it's been run over, we probably should have worn that one at City at the end of last season rather than the Black Watch one!

Looks like the kit's been run over. Not terrible though.

Edit: Just saw your comment Lyndon. :)

Lyndon (8), looks like it was two yellow hoops and a blue one in the middle, although Alex Young’s shirt looks different to Alan Parker’s, maybe the forwards got an extra hoop!!

Looks like Wile E Coyote after a run in with the Roadrunner’s moped

I suppose there must be a market for 3rd kits and training tops, I guess amongst the younger element. Someone asked a question as to why when we are currently playing in Florida with a growing fan base out there, how come the club haven't made a penny in selling any merchandise at these games.

I'll just add any shirt costing £60 should be gold plated.

Very nice

I like the coat hanger, are they for sale? 😜😂

How much? Stick 'em!

I actually prefer it to the awful new home shirt. But I never by them, I just don't think adults carrying a few extra pounds do them justice.
Mike Gaynes
17 Posted 28/07/2021 at 17:52:34
Brian #12, because the club is adhering to a century-old policy of never selling merchandise in the United States. Or anywhere in the Americas, for that matter.

ManU, the RS, Chelsea, Spurs, Arsenal, Barca, RM, Bayern, PSG and even Leicester among others dangle from the display racks in US sporting goods stores, but never has an Everton shirt been seen there. I've become convinced that none ever will.

As an atheist I must say it looks a bit crossy from afar. I guess it's alright as far as 3rd kits go. Save the good designs until we know what Rafa brings to us.

It looks bloody ridiculous, but it may well impair the concentration of our opponents. If it achieves that and we win in this tyre track monstrosity, then I’m all for it.
Justin Doone

Tyre track aside I think its our best kit this season. I like the 3rd kit experiments, some of our best kits over the last 10 years.

More for the kids, nice and summery.

Love the 3rd goalkeeper strip. Best kit of the lot?

The away kit is awful. Not a fan of sashes. Home is to busy, but nice.

Cazoo and the run over shirt is just top dollar hehe. I won't buy it, but I like it.

Slightly off topic, can anyone in the US give me an idea of which TV Channel is covering our game tonight, ESPN or Fox Sports ? Can't endure another torrid OS TV cock up in the making!

Cracking shirt and combination with shorts and socks. My 11year old says best in years...get it get it please...lol
Jay Evans

It’s shit.

Just like the home, just like the away.

Oh for an Adidas kit like those massive clubs Wolves and Leicester and Sheffield United.

I presume that’s a zip down the front and when you undo it the Arteta money falls out?
Brian Wilkinson
26 Posted 28/07/2021 at 20:37:26
Dave@10, it’s the same shirt, it’s just that Alex Young, has a Getty image banner that makes it look like three stripes.
Brian Wilkinson
27 Posted 28/07/2021 at 20:42:47
Cracking shirt, spoiled by the tyre mark going down the middle.

At least when Richarlison goes down for the 5th time in a game, clutching his forehead, he can at least have a half claim of being hit by a bus.

Dave Abrahams
28 Posted 28/07/2021 at 20:43:39
Brian (26), yes thanks I realised that after I looked at it three or four times, I remember the original shirt as well, but got the hoops colour the wrong way round, but it was a good 60 years ago!!
Gerry Ring
29 Posted 28/07/2021 at 21:38:28
Very similar to the ‘60/‘61 kit. Bitter sweet, as this was the jersey Tommy Ring was wearing against Chelsea when he broke his leg. Last Everton shirt he wore!😞

Lol. That kit looks like Uniroyal tyres logo!

It looks like a Port Vale home kit.

Looked okay actually in use for tonight’s game. Doesn’t really scream Everton though.
Fine for a third kit and those who want to buy it.

If it is a kit from the days of Dave Hickson then it should have a few splashes of red on it to resemble the blood The Cannonball Kid spilt for this club. Now that would be legend.

I would run through a brick wall for any club I played for but I would die for Everton.

Should be a rule that says you can only change kits every 3 seasons, or change only one each season. 3 new kits every fickin’ year is a joke.
Terence Leong

I agree with Iakovos at #2, that the approach of having 3 different kit designs, rather than one design with three different colours, shows promise.

I thought that the comment about being run over by a tire is really funny.

Derek Moore

The confused trim on the sleeve edges reminds me of the lollipop lady, and the pattern is truly hideous.

Hummel have done well. I didn't think I could dislike a shirt more than the Jordan Pickford confused pyjamas, but this shirt really gives it a run for it's money. It's epically close, but I now think I'd rather be seen in the asylum patients getup than this effort. With the Cazoo branding my first impression was that of a car wash attendants uniform. You'd have to pay me sixty quid a throw to be seen in this thing - and they're trying to sell them?

Toffs used to sell the original a couple of years back... and it was made from cotton too!.
