As per @EXWHUemployee and @S_D_C_C’s recent podcast on Phoenix Fm, it appears West Ham’s kits are all done and ready to be released for the upcoming 2017/18 season.
The new home kit has been inspired by the “Pony” kit as worn by John Hartson above…
The 17-18 home kit will be based on the Everton Home kit template, with claret main body, light blue under arms and claret top with light blue Umbro pattern edging.
The West Ham badge will be full colour whilst the Umbro logo and sponsor will be white.
Controversially, the home kit will have light blue shorts and light blue socks, replacing the traditional white shorts and claret socks combo.
The Hammers will wear light blue shorts with claret side trim for their home kit combination for the second time in their history, the first time was in the 2014-15 season as pictured below by Kouyate.
The away kit will be mainly light blue shirt with claret cuffs and claret collar. The shirt will have the same Umbro pattern on the top of the arms and shoulders which will also be claret. The West Ham badge will be full colour and the logo will be claret.
The kit will have white shorts with claret trim that will be used as change shorts for the home kit. The socks are claret with light blue trim that will also be used in the home kit.
The leaked third kit will be the all “Oxford” Navy Strip with light blue Umbro patterned trim, as posted by Angelo Ogbonna’s snapchat a short while back.
A full photoshop design has been produced by @Adrian_SMDC for added clarity (below), this template with the light blue crest indicates that this is the third kit as the home and away kits are full colour.
It is believed that the third kit will be unveiled on 26th May with Pablo Zabaleta modelling the shirt after agreeing two-year deal with an optional one year extension. The contract is reportedly a £4.8m-a-year deal.
