If you're a collector of soccer shirts, or just a die-hard follower of all things football, you are sure to notice a different kit manufacturer logo showing up on jerseys in 2015 2016. Or rather, a logo that has until now been absent from the global football market. In February of this year, New Balance revealed that they would be taking over all kit manufacturing duties from Warrior Sports, yes that's' right all Warrior football shirts rebranded New Balance! New Balance is the parent company of Warrior Sports, so the actual styles of the new shirts probably won't be much different from the old ones. However, the familiar Warrior "W" logo will disappear, to be replaced by New Balance's "NB" letter logo.
The Liverpool Jersey
Want to get a look at one of the NB jersey designs before the 2015 2016 season rolls around? At Soccer Box, we already have a slew of the latest Liverpool jersey designs in stock, all stamped with the New Balance logo.
The 2015/16 Liverpool home shirt is still quite familiar, boasting a very similar red-with-white-trim style to what Warrior came up with in 2014 2015. Whether you are looking for an adult short-sleeved style, a long-sleeved home jersey, or a Liverpool kids home shirt 2015 2016, you can purchase yours today at Soccer Box!
We also have stock available of the 2015 2016 Liverpool home goalkeeper shirt. Unlike the standard home jersey, the goalkeeper shirt actually did get a design overhaul for next season. First of all, next year's home goalkeeper shirt is black, which was the color of the away goalie shirt for the 2014 2015 season. (The 2014 2015 home goalkeeper jersey was a vibrant purple color.) Secondly, the 2015 2016 goalkeeper shirt ditches the yellow and red detailing of this year's away goalie kit, instead using white and red to complement the black shirt. It's a cool and subtle look that Liverpool fans will love.
Other New Balance JerseysÂ
Which other football clubs will be swapping out their Warrior Sports jerseys for New Balance shirts? Liverpool FC are definitely the biggest football club that Warrior was responsible for outfitting during the 2014 2015 season. However, New Balance's newly minted soccer jersey catalog will also include gear for FC Porto (Portugal), Stoke City (England), Celtic FC (Scotland), and Sevilla FC (Spain)-as well as the national teams for both Panama and Costa Rica.
There is more information to be found on NB's new soccer line at their website. So far, only the 2015 2016 Liverpool jerseys are available for immediate purchase, but shirt designs have also been unveiled for both Celtic and Stoke City, and kits for the other teams will be coming soon. From the looks of the designs, though, New Balance will be able to inject a new style into the football merchandise market.
Liverpool: A New Shirt, a New Era?
So what do you think of theÂ Liverpool FC jerseys from New Balance? Are they too similar to what Liverpool wore in the past? Or is the familiarity welcome-especially after the much-maligned re-designs that Warrior did for the club's away shirt and third jersey back in 2013 2014?
Regardless of your opinion on Liverpool's fresh New Balance kits for 2015 2016, there is no doubt that the shirts will bring about something of a new era for the Reds. With the departure of Steven Gerrard from Anfield this summer, the football club will have to adapt to changes in leadership and play style in 2015 2016.
After all, Gerrard has been playing for Liverpool since 1998, and has been the team's captain since 2003. It's almost tough to imagine the Reds existing without Gerrard at this point, so it's fitting that the club's first season without him will be marked with jersey designs from a new kit manufacturer.
Whether you prefer the Liverpool kids home shirt 2015 2016 or the 2015 2016 home goalkeeper jersey, both are available for purchase at Soccer Box now! We expect to receive stock of the 2015 2016 away shirt shortly.
