In case you missed it, pictures of Liverpool’s home, away and third shirts for the 2008/2009 season have been leaked courtesy of our friends at Football Shirt Culture.
Here’s the home shirt:
As you can see, Adidas has designed a very classy home shirt with a similar style to the Chelsea home shirt (except for a different collar). This is typical Adidas, where they like to work from similar templates rather than recreate completely different designs for each club.
If you live in the United Kingdom, go ahead and pre-order the replica Liverpool shirt and get a free Fernando Torres T-shirt. Just click on the image below for more details.
Here’s the away shirt:
The gray and fluorescent orange colors for the away shirt are very unique. While the design looks more like a goalkeeper’s shirt, it’ll be interesting to see how Liverpool perform in gray especially seeing how poor Manchester United did in their infamous gray shirt from 1995-96.
Here’s the third shirt:
While Liverpool’s away shirt looks like a goalkeeper’s jersey, the third strip looks even more like one. However, the short-sleeve shirt will supposedly be used in Europe. For more analysis about Liverpool shirts, visit the excellent Liverpool page on the Football Shirts website.
