Everton have revealed their new coral and navy away kit for the 2019-20 season and it is again a nod to the club’s past.
The salmon pink colour - or living coral as the club call it - is similar to the one worn by the club’s first title-winning side of 1890/91.
The shirt also has a two-tone sash effect as a nod to the black and scarlet sash kit worn by Everton in 1881 to earn the nickname ‘The Black Watch’.
The colours were first revived in 1992 with a salmon pink and navy striped kit that has gone down as something of a cult classic, worn by the likes of Tony Cottee, Gary Ablett and Peter Beardsley.
It was also brought back as a third kit for the 2001-02 campaign, though that was not worn very often and proved less popular.
The Toffees could wear the kit for the first time in their pre-season friendly against Wigan on Wednesday evening.
Everton launched their home kit at the start of the month featuring a tribute to Archibald Leitch designed criss-crossed steelwork on the front.
Speaking about the new away strip, Theo Walcott said:
“I’m into this kit. It’s clean looking and also feels really good and lightweight. No one can say they won’t be able to see their teammates on the pitch, that’s for sure. Let’s hope we can deliver the goods wearing it throughout 2019/20. It’s great to see the technical developments of the kits each year.”

Like with the launch of the home strip, Everton have also released an accompanying Shirtzine ‘St Domingo’ to celebrate the new kit featuring interviews with Bernard and Lucas Digne.
So, what do you think of the new kit? What are your favourite features, and what are you unimpressed by?
The navy shorts combination along with the socks looks pretty catchy too, and appears to have passed the Twitter fans test.
