German Bundesliga side FC Schalke 04 have unveiled the 2019/20 away kit that fuses tradition and symbolism in a contemporary design intended to inspire and enliven.
Using the conventional brilliant-white of past Schalke away jerseys as a base, this latest iteration builds meaningful touches into the design via three-colour sleeve design. Contrasting the white of the torso, an understated grey extends from the shoulder down to two-tone blue and green cuff banding. The thicker, blue band is of course in reference to the ‘blueprint’ colour so integral to Schalke’s home identity, while the thinner tip-element is a delicate touch of green, inspired by the Gelsenkirchen city flag. UMBRO shattered diamonds and a smart interpretation on the collar modernises the design, and completes the jersey.
Again utilising blue, the single colour shorts provide contrast to the jersey, and are constructed with an elasticated waistband and internal drawcords. White socks are tipped with a three-colour grey, blue and green top panel, with cotton footbed and cool zone technology on the in-step.
