Club unveils 2015-16 away kit

, 14 July, 61comments  |  Jump to most recent

Everton have revealed the new away kit for the 2015/16 season which will get its debut in the team's second Barclays Asia Trophy fixture on Saturday in Singapore.

Designed by Umbro the change strip is predominantly white with a crew neck, grey hoops on the arms, black shorts and white socks.
Like the home shirt, the 'NSNO' insignia is featured on the back of the neck area.

It is constructed using highly technical performance materials, including a lightweight textured mesh on the back of the shirt for maximum ventilation. Shaped mesh underarm panels offer maximum fit and movement.

The new away kit is available to pre-order from and Everton One and Everton Two from today, July 14, and will go on sale on Wednesday, July 29, both in-store and online. The kit is available in the full range of sizes for men, women, juniors, infants and babies.

Speaking about the new change strip away kit, Romelu Lukaku said: The new away kit looks great. It's fresh and smart and we are looking forward to wearing it in Singapore for the Barclays Asia Cup, as well as in the upcoming season.

This season Everton and retail partner Kitbag have rolled out a new Click and Collect service that offers a more convenient collection method for supporters who order merchandise online.

As well as still being able to collect their purchases from either of the two Everton stores, supporters are now able to pick up their parcels from any of the 5,000 Hermes Click and Collection partner sites throughout the UK. For more information about the Click and Collect service, visit

More information on the 2015/16 kit is available at To pre-order the new kit visit, Everton One or Everton Two.

Looks like a white tank top over pyjamas

One of the worst kits of any club I have ever seen! I’m almost speechless! No wonder Bill has been looking ill lately. He must have been vomming up all night after seeing that.

The long-sleeve version does look a little like pyjamas, I have to say. It might have been better had they faded the hoops off halfway down. [Not sure it warrants the over-the-top reactions on here so far, though.]

But I really like the short-sleeved version that Lukaku is sporting there. But then I was a big fan of the white/grey striped number from the late ’80s which his harks back to.

Is it just me or is there a hint of ’the boy in the striped pyjamas’ about this kit. There seems to be a distinct lack of aesthetic nouse about our great club.

Hmm...well obviously I am in the minority but I quite like it.
I like us to stay fairly rigid with our home kit but the away and 3rd kits I like us to go a little different.
That way, the traditionalists and the radicals all get a choice!

It looks good to me. A bit different from the norm. Damned if you do and damned if you don't at the mo. Keep it the same as previous years everyone says 'boring' change it everyone says 'rubbish'.

Lets start by being positive and maybe the team will smash those first 10 games and we are off and running for a cracking season!!

Looks quite extravagant to me but it's quite nice, I like it.

I won't really be arsed what it looks like if it's the kit we finally win at Chelsea wearing, it's the team not the kit that's important.

My personal favorite away strip was the old school classic cream classic of 2010-11, the one we won at Chelsea in, the FA Cup penalty shootout.

At least it's not pink.

Bloody awful. Where's the silver/grey come from? Does it have any historical reference?
Tamhas Woods
15 Posted 14/07/2015 at 19:40:29
Pathetic. Is this a nod to the 1994-96 away kits?

Hateful garbage.... at least terrible away kits were fashionable back then. Today there's just no excuse.

2003-04 Plain Amber, 2009-10 Black and Purple, 2010-11 Vanilla Kit..... THAT'S how you do away kits!

Always liked the yellow away kit from years ago!

I like it...

Colin - It is an effort to please all of us who have been demanding Silver Wear...

But seriously, we had grey / silver kits in 1984-85 if I remember rightly.

At least the boys look happy in it!

If we win a trophy when the boys are playing in, it I'll flippin' love it.

To all those who say pyjamas, I say pants... yes we're missing the pyjama pants!

Great, last year's shirt got lost in the post (which I quite liked the look of) and neither home nor away this year inspire me to order it. Sigh, back to my old old old shirt.

Mark Robson
22 Posted 14/07/2015 at 19:58:04
Personally, it is growing on me already. I like how clean and plain a white kit looks.

Patrick @18, you're correct Le Coq Sportif mid eighties all silver/grey outfit. My fave is still the cream 2010-11 one with the navy shorts and hooped socks. There's still the 3rd kit to come so some of the moaners may be appeased.

Davie Turner

I really like the short-sleeved one, now to consider whether I can justify the price... almost!
Denis Richardson
25 Posted 14/07/2015 at 20:11:19
That is pretty bad... what's with the grey stripes on the side? The long-sleeved version is really shit.

Who actually designs this stuff?

Scott Bosworth

I think it's 100% badassery. LOVE it.

Here you go, quite traditional really. White with black shorts was mostly are change kit for about 60 years. And the last times we have won anything silver / grey was our colour.

Geoffrey Risebrow
28 Posted 14/07/2015 at 20:22:15
What a miserable bunch on here today; there's just no pleasing some people!

I love it and hopefully our boys will win some football matches in it!

It looks like you've got a white shirt on and lent on some railings that's just been painted grey and the paint is still wet.

Possibly the worst umbro kit since that one they did in the mid 1990s that was also white, but looked like you'd been run over by a tractor.

I like the short-sleeved shirt; the long-sleeved one looks silly.

Ace. Love it. Trendy, sleek... I think it's a winner.

Just texted screen shot to:

14-year-old boy -- "I think it's awesome." and "The arms are so cool with the stripes."

16-year-old boy -- "They're sweet!"

17-year-old boy -- "I like it"

Clearly, Everton have actually gotten something right by targeting youth with the away jersey design... unlike the over-40 crowd of grumpy old men on TW....

Go on, you mugs, buy another gobshite creation. The sooner this Kitbag merry-go-round is seen for what it is and dumped in the garbage, the better.

The so-called 'top clubs' promised to stop fleecing the fans with this annual rebranding years ago and have done nothing to halt the rip off since... If yer know yer 'istory etc...

Jamie (33) - those that young don't necessarily have familiarity with black and white pictures, and can't envisage a photo of a B&W Ronald McDonald.
Eugene Ruane
36 Posted 14/07/2015 at 21:37:56

You don't know where you are - I thought the Fisher-Price badge committee had been disbanded.

- Cough FUCKIN' AMBER!!!! -

Actually you might be right Jamie, re TWs over 40s.

For instance, I'd stick the 14-year-old on a training ship for six months, just for using the word 'awesome' to describe a shirt. Sure, that might seem harsh, but he would thank me in later years.

I mean I genuinely feel for today's teenagers who use the word 'awesome' to describe a McFlurry or a 50 cent (now 50 drachma?) track.

Should they ever encounter the Pyramids or Everest or Niagara Falls, they are going to be fucking goosed for an adjective.

John Gee
37 Posted 14/07/2015 at 21:50:51
So do I wash it with my white string vests? Or do I stick it in with my grey budgie smugglers? Does Persil have a help line number?

All my clothes are monochromatic but I think this looks ok. Gear! As Ringo would say.

Steven Jones

Love it - vibrant - classy and very different - distinctive - we will stand out and the players will play great in it!

Short-sleeved, not too bad. Long-sleeved, prison gear.
Jamie Crowley

Awesome post, Eugene.


I do like the idea of a training ship for 6 months!

Standing out brilliantly, most definetely. This is Everton, COYBB.
Jamie Sweet

Do the Pyramids, Everest or Niagra Falls have stripy pyjama sleeves Eugene?

No. No they do not.

Colin Glassar

Why can't we just go back to the amber and blue that Bally wore so gracefully?
Ant Dwyer
45 Posted 15/07/2015 at 01:09:56
I'm most definitely in the minority here but I think the kit is boss. Light top with stand out logos and badges plus dark shorts.

Also to those who are asking if the colours are new, they are not. We wore these colours previously when Umbro made our kits, once with NEC and another time with Danka on.

Brian Wilkinson
46 Posted 15/07/2015 at 02:56:50
I think this could work in our favour, the opposing team will be pissing themselves when we run out in that shirt.

Think this may have been designed by the guy in the bedsit, who put in a bid to buy Everton a few years back.

Hugh Jenkins
47 Posted 15/07/2015 at 05:02:29
In my view, a joint design effort by Mothercare and the US Penitentiary system.
Stuart Mitchell
48 Posted 15/07/2015 at 07:51:56
White Shirt with Black Shorts would have looked good. Those stripey arms are awful.
Jim Bennings

I haven't put one negative post on this thread....yet, but Christ the amount of moaning here about a bloody kit, and people say I'm a moaner!!! Haha.

It's just a kit, it's hardly worn part from maybe at Chelsea and maybe Villa.

I wasn't too keen on the home kit to start with but you just get familiar with it, at the end of the day, as long as we sign quality players and start winning matches, does it matter??

I had this argument when we had the badge change two seasons ago, different badge but we finished 5th and did anybody take any notice of the badge when we won at Old Trafford or tonked Arsenal 3-0???

No, no and no...

Keith Knowles

Shocking design; its about time the club runs design ideas by supporters before going head first and potentially losing out on millions in lost kit sales!
Sam Morrison
51 Posted 15/07/2015 at 09:22:46
Ross doesn't look too happy. But that may be because he has life-preservers on his feet.
Tony Marsh
52 Posted 15/07/2015 at 09:49:53
Not bad; a little bit different from most others, quite a modern twist --stripes are in, ye know. Better than last season's kit with the massive epaulets around the sleeves.
Tony J Williams
55 Posted 15/07/2015 at 12:48:27
As most others have said, short-sleeved one looks quite good. Long-sleeved one is absolutely shocking.
Keith Meakin
56 Posted 15/07/2015 at 15:17:10
Reminds me of the Old Chain Gang outfits.
Not for me.
Tim Greeley
57 Posted 15/07/2015 at 15:41:22
Tony J nailed it. Short sleeves look pretty rad but the long sleeves are reprehensible. Big swing for a couple inches of fabric!
Richard Reeves
58 Posted 15/07/2015 at 17:22:22
I could create a better design than this.

I quite like the idea of an all-black away kit with a blue sash running vertically (not diagonally) down one side of the front of the shirt with the badge incorporated into it and a return to the blue-and-black hooped socks. That would look like we meant business even if we didn't.

Obviously I wasn't expecting that as it's in my head but this season I was hoping for amber and blue.

Andy Bulmer
60 Posted 16/07/2015 at 00:17:33
Can everyone please stop referring to the sleeves as striped? They're hooped, stripes go vertically down the body (Newcastle, Sunderland etc) whereas hoops go horizontally across the body like Celtic etc.

Sorry to be pedantic but my OCD is kicking in again!...

Paul Kelly
61 Posted 16/07/2015 at 07:25:49
Marketed at the younger generation I take it, but fear not my older brethren, the hoops would take the attention of the protruding midriff we call "bellies".
Nicky Styles
62 Posted 16/07/2015 at 08:38:28
So uninspired. Downright ugly actually.
Away kit should be yellow shirt, blue shorts end of!
Nicky Styles
63 Posted 16/07/2015 at 08:42:23
Jim Bennings – on the subject of the badge, I quite miss the previous Nike-enforced one. I liked its simplicity and I think the current one needs a bit of yellow.

Further, the fact that the kits now have NSNO on the back suggest it wasn't necessary to put it on the badge in the end.

Timothy Blanshard

Eugene Ruane, You read my mind, sick to the back fucking teeth of people saying 'awesome' because they've just bought a Kit-Kat or something just as inane.
David Chait
65 Posted 16/07/2015 at 14:10:38
On the face of it, I hate the sleeves... but then I thought I didn't like the inside collar on the home strip but I thought it looked good on the pitch... so I'm open to see it live first.
Mike Hughes
66 Posted 16/07/2015 at 16:33:43
Both tops are crap. The short-sleeve one is like a tank-top over a tee-shirt. The long-sleeve one looks like part of a kiddie's romper suit.

If it's negative – that's how I feel. It's more Matalan rather than Nike, Reebok or Umbro.

If it didn't have an Everton badge on it, would anyone buy anything like that and venture out during daylight hours?

John Daley
67 Posted 16/07/2015 at 16:57:33
The grey and white hoops on the arms, and the 'seriously pissed off' modelling stares sported by the players, made this spring to mind:


It would look much better just plain white, without the superfluous hoops, in my opinion, but I guess the club/kit manufacturers have made a rod for their own back by making it compulsory to bring out three new strips every single season. They always have to try and find some (forced) new element to distinguish it from previous efforts.

Jermaine Jennings

I like the away kit. It's different which is why I like it and will be buying that for sure.
Eugene Ruane
70 Posted 16/07/2015 at 17:59:19
Maybe they should have gone 100% for the chain-gang look (if a job's worth doing...).

I'm picturing a night game at Goodison against a nervous looking Liverpool - a nice loud/bevvied/nasty/intimidating atmosphere and Everton walk out in the full Paul Muni.

We could then do a theatrical unlocking of a big chain before games - 'let the dogs loose' type stuff.

And there's no law that says shorts cant be dead there?

I'm actually starting to like it - be dead newsworthy.

"Everton players celebrate their winner against distracted reds"


Andy Osborne

Richard (58), I agree. An all-black kit would definitely look the part. Then all we would need is better football to go with it.

Some of the recent away/third kits have been truly laughable, but this one doesn't look that bad. I do, however, agree the long-sleeved version is pants.
