Everton have taken to social media to unveil the club’s new third kit, with kit manufacturer Hummel drawing heavily upon the club’s history for the strip’s new design.
The white and gilt-edged kit features a vertical tyre-track stripe emblazoning the front of the shirt – again lined in a gold trim – that harks back to the Everton kits of the 1950s and early 60s.

The Danish kit manufacturer makes no qualms about their inspiration from the Toffees’ past to produce a ‘reinterpretation of Everton’s pioneering away strip of the late 1950s’ in their own words.
As shared by the official club Twitter handle, the likes of Lucas Digne, Ben Godfrey and Alex Iwobi are just some of the notable names that model the new strip.

Everton fans have been treated to an attractive bespoke range of kits ever since, with every fabric deeply steeped in the Toffees’ past as much as its own aesthetic value.
Just as the third kit harks back to Everton’s past, so too does this season’s away kit that was revealed at the tail-end of last season.
A largely blacked-out jersey adorned with a fiery orange diagonal stripe is a reference to the Everton team of 1881-82, nicknamed The Black Watch.
The shirt features a ‘statement burnt orange sash’ in Hummel’s words, again affirming the manufacturer’s commitment to move away from templates and ill-thought designs.
