Liverpool FC’s 21/22 Away kit is reflective of Liverpool’s love of premium high-end fashion, a city that’s at the forefront of style with its unique fashion forward perspective.
In a nod back to the cult classic kit of 96-97 with its colour palette, this Away jersey remains consistent with the home and wider collection with the striping detail in the collar and sock.
The trim throughout frames what we call Liver-Lux, a positioning celebrating a new modern era of brilliance, for the city and the club. Its rich history is juxtaposed with contemporary and modern-day style.
On the nape of the neck, the 96-emblem encased by the eternal flames sits proudly in memory of the 96 children, women and men who lost their lives at Hillsborough.
The off-white stone epitomises the hard-working nature of the people of Liverpool and pays homage to the city’s skyline, comprised of three iconic buildings called the three graces. It’s symbolic of the local prestige, commercial importance and the club’s international stature.
No one is better placed to speak about the city’s love of fashion than Liverpudlian & local hero Curtis Jones, “I think the fans will love this one. It’s a perfect reflection of the city and you can see the inspiration throughout the design with a throwback to the 90s.”
The new Liverpool FC Away kit that players will wear on the pitch as well as the replica jerseys for the fans are constructed with 100% recycled polyester fabric, which is made from recycled plastic bottles. This creates the kits that helps deliver peak performance with a lower impact on the environment.
No other sport captures global attention like the beautiful game and we see this as an opportunity to scale more sustainable solutions in order to help protect the future of sport. As part of Nike’s wider Move to Zero initiative – a journey towards zero carbon and zero waste – we are focused in scaling the usage of lower-carbon material alternatives. Recycled polyester reduces carbon emissions by up to 30% compared to virgin polyester and that’s why since 2010 Nike has been using rPoly to produce football kits.
The 21/22 Liverpool FC Away kit will be available to Nike Members from 8 July from nike.com and on full retail from 15 July.
Each year, Nike diverts an average of one billion plastic bottles from landfills and waterways by creating and designing with recycled polyester. Plastic bottles are collected, cleaned and melted down to produce a high-quality yarn for manufacturing and is part of Nike’s wider Move to Zero initiative with football apparel leading the way in sustainability.
