"The primary colour is ember glow, with ultramarine blue playing a strong supporting role. The blue appears on the jersey’s V-neck collar, shoulders and on vertical stripes which gradually fade away down the front of the shirt. Ember glow shorts and blue socks complete the full look."

"Ember glow"? What a load of horses**t - - rec more like. And blue playing a supporting role? I'm not happy with that.

In any case, it looks like someone has washed it and the dye has run out.

So apparently it's only to be used on European duty.  Limits the number of times we'll have to see it. 👍

Controversially it's inspired by the original Nike Air Max. It's celebrates something from our sponsors as opposed to the club.  👎

 

As a sneakerhead, I can say with a decent amount of certainty it is not inspired by the original Air Max (sadly).  It's the Air Max 180, which is a bit underwhelming really.  

It's a crap kit though.  And the blue alone really makes it a bit redundant.  I'm expecting a 4th kit to suddenly appear by Christmas or so (maybe that black and gold kit that has been floating about).  We've got 3 blue kits, so the need for something different will surely arise

Truly hideous.  I hope no one buys it.

Football is losing its soul in so many ways :-(

Suppose it's the problem with changing three kits every season.  Means the crap ideas come round twice as often as they used to...

I guess I am in the minorty.........but I quite like it!  It's a little bit different, but I think we often produce a nice looking away shirt throughout the years.

I wouldn't buy it, but I don't buy football shirts being a man who is close to 40. If I did buy football shirts, then I would probably buy it.

I think it's  ... Fine? Not drawn to it but don't think it's much different aesthetically to most third kits.

It's just ... Very blue for a third kit, especially when the second kit is even more blue. That's my issue with it.
