West Ham Home Kit 2017/18: A closer look


West Ham United have today revealed their new Home kit, which is available to pre-order now, for the 2017/18 season.

Inspiration taken from the club’s rich history combined with futuristic technical features, give this latest design, by technical partners Umbro, a look truly unique to West Ham.

The shirt fronts and collar feature the popular chevron design worn by the Hammers for the first time in their memorable meeting with Anderlecht and throughout the late 1970s.

The design also uses inspiration from West Ham’s new London Stadium home, where the iconic floodlights, giant cantilever roof and supporting infrastructure also feature the same triangular shape.

The two-tone claret body is complemented by smart sky blue sleeves featuring Umbro’s famous running diamond on the shoulder.

Years after its first introduction, the taping returns as a visual statement, now incorporated into the body of the shirt using lightweight, breathable technology to remove weight and distraction for the player.

Completing the look is a classic Union Jack motif, which also featured in part, on the home shirt during the 2016/17 campaign.

Inspired by the original Thames Ironworks shirt, the flag motif is located on the upper reverse of the shirt, which is constructed with great fit and bold styling at the heart of the design.

The white home shorts are tailored with stretch fabrics for maximum comfort and freedom of movement, featuring contrasted knitted diamonds down the side to match the sleeves of the jersey.

Double-welt socks - reverting back to white - feature a claret and blue band adorned with the double diamond to complete a kit that matches the modern day footballer’s high level of performance on the pitch.

Available to pre-order now in club stores and online here, supporters can also take advantage of a special pre-order offer by getting 10% off all 2017/18 home shirts plus free UK mainland standard delivery.*
