Liverpool have officially revealed their new away shirt for the 2020/21 season by Nike.
The home kit was released earlier this month, shortly after the club’s deal with New Balance expired.
Nike’s second offering to the Reds is a contemporary teal pattern with black trim on the arms, around the neck and down the sides.
The placement of the trim follows suit with the design of the first kit, and we expect it’ll be similar for the alternative one.
The swirling teal design is interesting and what it represents may not be immediately obvious to some.
Honestly it does look like the bottom of a clean pool on a sunny day, but that isn’t actually the case.
As Liverpool state on their website, ‘its swirling pattern on the front of the jersey takes inspiration from the Shankly Gates at Anfield.’
A closer look at the shirt does give a better indication of the inspiration Nike used for the shirt.
The design also features what looks like ripped paper, and that’s no coincidence either.
As the club explains, the ‘textured print design nods to Liverpool’s musical roots and the fly-posters often found around the city.’
