Hammers unveil 2015/16 away kit

Club return to the Original Claret & Blue for 2015/16 away kit

West Ham United have unveiled their away kit for the final season at the Boleyn Ground and the striking new kit is available to pre-order now.

The first away kit as part of the Club’s new partnership with Umbro, the design is based on the original claret and blue strip worn by the Hammers.

Featuring a sky blue body, with a claret band across the chest, the shirt mirrors that worn by the Hammers between 1901-03, which established the colours that have graced the Boleyn Ground ever since.

Alongside the Boleyn Kit 2015/16, which is inspired by the first ever shirt worn at the historic ground, the kits for the new campaign will pay a fitting tribute as the Club prepares to bid farewell to its home since 1904.

The away kit is completed by sky blue shorts with a claret trim and sky blue socks with a claret hoop. The shirt again pays homage to the momentous final season by including the ‘Boleyn Ground 1904-2016’ sign-off underneath the club crest as well as on the back neck area.

Summer signing Dimitri Payet loves the kit and cannot wait to test it out in action.

He said: “When you are playing away, your kit is like your armour in battle and the history of this shirt is sure to inspire the team.

“I came to the Premier League to play at the Boleyn Ground, and at some of the most famous stadiums in the world, where we will wear this shirt with pride.

“With 50,000 people against you – you cannot hide. You play for the shirt and for its history, and I can’t wait to do that for West Ham.”

Mark Noble added: “The Club and Umbro have put a lot of thought into the kits this year and both the away and the home kits are designed really well. I love the colours on the away kit – and they’re really comfortable too.

“I have some great memories of away games with West Ham, including when we beat Manchester United at Old Trafford to stay up and I can’t wait to make many more in this kit in front of our fantastic away support.”

Featuring the same body-mapping technology as the Boleyn Kit 2015/16, the away kit is designed to offer maximum ventilation in one of the key temperature zones for the players. Offering the ultimate in appearance and design technology, yet giving a design rich in tradition, the shorts are optimised for fit and comfort with a tailored silhouette and reduced volume waistband, complete with a mesh back yoke. Double welt socks complete the stylish look.
