Umbro today officially unveiled England’s new away shirt — and it’s a different color than the Three Lions haven’t worn before as an away shirt — navy blue.
Umbro is becoming a master at creating simple but beautiful designs of late — at least with the national teams they design shirts for. And this one is no exception.
While the navy blue color is a departure for England, I don’t see it as a radical departure. Using the sky blue color for the collar definitely ties the England shirt to the past (as well as matching the color of the Three Lions in the crest). And gone has the color red which has been a prominent away shirt design for many years (not all).
Tp watch a video of British boxer David Haye modeling the new shirt, read on. “The Hayemaker,” as he’s nicknamed, will wear the England away shirt when he walks out into the ring for his fight this weekend. It’s interesting seeing him wear the shirt because he makes it look more like a rugby shirt than a football shirt — especially with his muscular upper body.
