New Balance have unveiled their annual Liverpool FC blackout jersey as the tradition continues into this 2019/20 season. This limited edition shirt won’t be worn on pitch by the players but it offers the smartest of alternatives as the brand focus strongly on the club’s streetwear presence.
The 2019/20 edition of the shirt is modelled on Liverpool FC’s home jersey for 2019/20 and builds on the centenary celebrations of legendary manager Bob Paisley OBE’s birth.
There is a pin stripe design which draws inspiration from Liverpool’s 1982/83 strip, when Paisley was the club’s manager and the club won the League and League Cup.
New Balance seem to be making these blackout shirts somewhat of an annual event while they have been the kit manufacturer of Liverpool FC, and the latest limited edition drop is in a similar vein to that of last season’s release which was a resounding success. The blackout vibes on the LFC shirt follows on from the release of the new “Infinite Dark” pack which is the blackout versions of the Tekeal V2 and Furon V5 football boots.
