Arsenal have revealed their new away kit for the 2013-14 season, featuring the club’s traditional second colours of yellow and blue last worn during the 2003-04 unbeaten league campaign.
The shirt, manufactured by Nike, is yellow with a blue polo collar and deep blue cuffs on the sleeves, both featuring a thin yellow stripe.
The new away shorts are blue, and the socks feature the traditional Arsenal hoop sock design in blue and yellow. The club was the first to wear socks featuring hoops in the 1930s under the innovative stewardship of manager Herbert Chapman.
Theo Walcott said: “The kit looks and feels great. Arsenal is synonymous with yellow and blue and I think this new design fuses that tradition with a modern twist. I can’t wait to get out on the pitch and wear it.”
The kit is made of fabric weighing just 150 grams, 23 per cent lighter than previous Nike kits. It also boasts a 20 per cent stronger knit structure and “significantly improved stretch”.
