It’s probably fair to say that – last minute worldies from Alisson aside – this season hasn’t had many highlights for Liverpool fans, following the highs of the last few seasons. The Reds are probably quite looking forward to drawing a line under the 20/21 season and turning their attention to next season. And now they know what they’ll be wearing, with the reveal of the new Liverpool home shirt from Nike.
In 1964, Bill Shankly, the most iconic figure in Liverpool club history, made a decision that would alter the perception of Liverpool forever, introducing a full red kit, on the basis that it would provide his team with a psychological edge. The first time it was worn at Anfield he remarked that “there was a glow, like a fire was burning.” The psychological edge was borne of the theory that the flood red would signify 'power & danger’.
It is from this decision that Nike have taken creative inspiration when designing the Liverpool kit for the 21/22 season, with the iconic full red kit representing power, complimented by the injection of energy – a ‘glow' – in the form of Bright Crimson with the pin stripe lightning bolts representing danger. Additionally, the 'Liver-Lux' narrative is introduced in the back neck tape, creating a thread of high fashion inspired stripes that run throughout the entire collection. Liverpool fans will be hoping that their second ever Nike kit brings more joy than they had in their first.
