Keep calm over 'leaked' Liverpool Nike kit

  • With no football to keep up interest, thoughts have turned to other things: namely, Liverpool's first Nike kit, and what it will look like.Get more news about Soccer Jersey Online,you can vist futbolucl.com!


    There have been some fantastic concept kits (and some awful ones too, in truth), but now, it appears the actual one has been leaked on the Internet.


    Now, this all comes with the usual caveats. This might not even be the kit anyway. It could be a magnificent hoax, created to give us all something to talk about while we await some sort of news about the resumption of football. And if it is the kit, then, whoever leaked it is a very bad person, and should take a long, hard look in the mirror at themselves. Not to mention they've probably breached some sort of non-disclosure agreement.You know it has bags of promise, the potential is clearly there for all to see, and somehow you’re left wanting more.


    On first glance it seems okay, I guess, slightly 2017/18 with a weird tinge of teal knocking about. I have certain hills I would die on when it comes to Liverpool kits: The first is that every home kit should be red and yellow. Every away kit should be yellow and red, and I never judge the design fully until I see the socks. The socks are where the design is made or broken for me. Considering the best socks have involved an Adidas three-stripe, I might be left disappointed.


    As it is, I am left wanting more. Left seeing a glimpse which I think could be better with a little bit of encouragement. Wait, am I talking about the kit or Keita now?I'm not quite sure what to make of it, to be honest. As ever, with leaked kits, they almost always look far better when you see the players wearing them than they do in these slightly dodgy-looking first images. I'm don't know how I feel about the green, or the weird back of the collar, nor am I a fan of what looks like a stick-on badge, as opposed to am embroidered one.


    On the whole it's just a bit...meh. Not brilliant, not awful. But then many of my favourite Liverpool kits in years gone by have been ones I wasn't wholly convinced by upon first release, because the memories of the games in which they're worn tend to swing my opinion quite heavily. E.g. the grey Adidas one from 2008/09, which I didn't like at all at first, but now love because it instantly reminds me of the 4-1 win at Old Trafford that season.


    So I won't rush to make any strong judgements for now, and see what it looks like when the real thing comes out and Liverpool actually play in it. Just as I wasn't entirely sure what kind of footballer Liverpool had bought when Gini Wijnaldum arrived from Newcastle United in 2016, and then developed into one of the most complete midfielders in Europe. Who knows, it could be the same with this kit. Sometimes you just have to wait and see.
