Hearts 2018-19 Umbro Home Kit

Hearts 2018-19 Umbro Home Kit

Heart of Midlothian launched the new Umbro home strip for season 2018/19.

The jersey is a modern twist on a traditional Hearts home kit with subtle centre stripe colour blocking, running diamonds at the cuffs and piping at the neckline. The reverse neck of the shirt features a bespoke club sign off.

In 1977, Umbro introduced the iconic running diamond to the field of play. In the following decades the double diamond continued to adapt with the ever-changing face of the game. For the new season, Umbro’s taping story has evolved, moving from the tradition to the contemporary. A fresh outlook on a football staple.

All kits are constructed in lightweight durable fabrics and executed with great fit which can withstand the pressures of the modern game, whilst creating a wearable uniform for the fan. To aid comfort ergonomic mesh panels have been constructed at the underarm providing maximum breathability.

With the club announcing this morning that it has extended its partnership with Save the Children for a further three years, the charity’s name will proudly be sported across the front of the new jersey for a fourth season and beyond.

    Those sleeves are class. Remind me of Umbria gear of yore

    @Cheshire Set You're right there. The new Umbro seem to reserve their best designs for South American teams. Weird.

    I remember picking up cheap 'seconds' and prototypes from the Umbro factory in Wilmslow as a teenager in the 1980's. Since then I've always loved Umbro. But after its rebirth three years ago it's not been a patch on the old Umbro. This shirt is average, as is most of what they do now.

    Not a fan of the Edinburgh debt defaulters by any stretch of the imagination, but that is very smart.

    Hearts have always been a staid, tradtional club, and apart from one year in the 70's when they thought they were Ajax, have rarely varied the maroon top, white shorts & maroon socks design. So apart from changes of supplier logo and shirt sponsors over the years, there isn't much any manufacturer can do apart from tinker with the collar and trim.

    Umbro just like most kit manufactures these days have run out of ideas, and just look at all the retro stuff adidas done for the world cup teams.

    nothing special about it. Umbro used to be one of the best fashionable sportswear and used to make nice shirts back in the 90s tho not anymore.
    :(

    Have to say Umbros efforts have been a bit disappointing this season this is bang average.

    Absolutely beautiful. So far it's easily the best kit of all Scottish clubs released so far, Aberdeen a close second. Not many more to release so this could well end up leader of the pack.

    I disagree boys, I think umbro, compared to the other big kit suppliers have produced some really nice modern but with a nod to theirs and the club's they supply's heratige!

    @Wessex Interesting fact, but despite both being the same company, I believe the South American division has a level of autonomy and its own design team, hence why you never see the same templates shared between continents.
