Everton renew partnership with maligned kit maker

This isn’t going over very well.

Everton kits - particularly over the last few years - have been hit or miss, and frankly they’ve mostly been misses. For years, fans have been pleading with the club to make the switch to a larger outfit like Adidas or Under Armour, so we can actually wear something worth being seen in public.

Unfortunately, those cries have gone unheard, as the Blues have re-upped with Umbro, or as Everton call it, “the famous double diamond brand.” Sure:

Everton Football Club announced today an extended multi-year technical partnership with iconic football brand Umbro.

The Blues will continue to wear the famous double diamond brand, with Umbro UK providing the Club with bespoke technical kit and training wear for the men’s, ladies and Academy teams as well as for fans.

When Everton tweeted out the announcement, well, you could say the reaction was less than positive.

Anyway, you get the picture. We’ll find out soon enough if next season’s kits will be more like this year’s or the abominations from the year prior.
