Sunderland 11/12 Umbro Home Kit

Here is the new Sunderland home kit designed by Umbro for the 2011/2012 Premier League season, which will be available here.

The new kit is due to be launched on the 22nd of May, a day before the last game of the season, so it seems quite likely the kit will be first used here.

The kit itself is pretty much what we've come to expect from Umbro in recent years, a basic looking kit but still retaining a lot of personality and identity. The kit will again be a red/white shirt and black shorts although the socks have been slightly modified and are now hooped in red and white rather than a solid colour.

The back of the shirt is where the design gets interesting. Rather than just a continuation of the stripes from the front at the shoulders, they seem to veer off course and create a V shape, which intentioanlly or unintentionally does look like a partial Umbro logo. Another change comes with the centre stipe of the shirt being swapped from white over to red, something Umbro did with their first shirt when their contract began in 2007 and also back in the late 70s.

The back looks weird, but I like it. :-)
