Liverpool have a somewhat chequered history when it comes to football kits.
Whilst their traditional red home strips are usually pleasing on the eye, their second and third kits have often been the subject of criticism.
Their bizarre Christmas-themed away kit for the 2013/14 season, for example, received much hate despite former sponsor Warrior’s understandable attempt to be unique.

Such a trend might not be apparent for next season, though, with the Reds’ potential third strip next season leaked online, per the Mirror.

New Balance’s dark green and luminous yellow strip is a significant improvement on kits gone by at Anfield, with their rumoured home shirt also leaked in recent days.
Liverpool will harbour hopes of showing off their potential new strip in the Champions League next season amidst their bid to win the Europa League.
Jurgen Klopp’s men are in the semi-finals but face a battle to claim their place in the final following their 1-0 defeat to Villarreal on Thursday night.
The Reds have beaten Manchester United and Borussia Dortmund in emphatic fashion en route to the last four and, should they win the Europa League, could see five Premier League clubs represent in Europe’s elite competition.
A 1-0 deficit is far from ideal heading into next week’s second leg yet Klopp has urged his players to not be disappointed by the result.
“It is not a moment for disappointment,” he said. “If the players want to be angry for 10 minutes, then do it and move on.
“To be honest, it is the first leg. My first thought was ‘sorry, but it is not over, you have to come to Anfield, too, and we will be ready’.
“Things are possible with 1-0, it is not the biggest result in the world.
“Villarreal know a lot more about us and they will respect us. Now we have to find solutions to a few things, but I saw we are in a good way.”
Ultimately, the German wants his side to give their all when they host the La Liga outfit in the return leg.
“If you go out in the semis, then do so kicking and screaming," he added.
Liverpool will do so without centre-back Mamadou Sakho, who was handed a 30-day suspension by UEFA on Thursday after being found guilty of doping.
The Frenchman failed a drug test following his side’s Europa League clash with United in mid-March and could face a hefty ban when UEFA conclude their investigation.
Club legend Jamie Carragher is one of many to have commented on Sakho’s actions, saying: “It’s a nightmare for the player. I think he’s let himself down and the club badly, because he’s become a really important player.”
