Everton 23/24 Kits
Everton 23/24 Home Shirt
After almost a decade, Everton wore their blue home shirt in 2023/24 with an outfitted polo collar. The said collar construction was white and featured a blue, crisscrossing striping frame along the edge to give tribute to Archibald Leitch and the particular criss-cross steel present at the upper tier of Goodison Park. Showing the same look, the sleeve cuffs also contained the collar’s finish to give the Hummel-produced shirt an anchoring visual. Instead of the usual chevrons, Hummel had the shoulders inserted with a panel that had a chevron striping alternating in white and blue. A small white silhouette of the Everton Lock-Up at the back below the collar signed off the overall design.
Everton 23/24 Away Shirt
Inspired by the 1992/94 away kit, Everton’s 2023/24 Hummel shirt sported a coral base with navy vertical striping. But the latter was not applied with a solid fill. Instead, it showed a random, abstract pattern that was a distinct feature of the succeeding 1994/96 away kits, making the 2023/24 change shirt a combination of two classic away Everton outfits.
Everton Home Kits
2022/23 Everton Home Shirt
Everton’s blue 2022/23 home shirt, produced by Hummel, sported a new embossed tower pattern over the front side of its body panel, which had a flash of white on the topmost portion of the lats. A first occurrence, Hummel reduced the traditionally four shoulder chevrons to two to give more emphasis on the abovementioned design. A white round collar with blue piping capped off the look.
2021/22 Everton Home Shirt
The Toffees geared up for the 2021/22 season with a predominantly blue Hummel home shirt. The raglan-sleeved jersey featured a tonal dazzle camo graphic on the front, while yellow and white accents appeared on the narrow sleeve cuffs and rear end of the collar. The primary visual took inspiration from the bold dazzle camo of British warships during the First World War, with Liverpool taking charge in applying said livery.
2020/21 Everton Home Shirt
The Toffees’ 2020/21 home kit was the first Everton kit produced by the Danish sportswear giant Hummel. As an Everton shirt, it was predominantly blue and used white to accentuate the applications. Four chevrons appeared on each shoulder facing their respective directions to mark Hummel’s influence. A white stripe ran in the middle of the wide sleeve cuffs. Raglan cuts formed the shoulders and seamlessly connected to the henley neckline. The main highlight of the new home kit though was the chest area as it housed the tonal blue embossed diagonals inspired by the club’s iconic Z-cars anthem. These embossed diagonals were made even more visible due to the lightened shade on this part of the blue shirt.
Everton Away Kits
2022/23 Everton Away Shirt
Everton’s 2022/23 Hummel away offered a striking ‘rosebloom’ pink base, a perfect canvass for the patriotic blue torso graphic inspired by the angled roof of Prince Rupert’s Tower on the club crest. The round collar was navy with pink piping, complementing the template shoulder chevrons.
2021/22 Everton Away Shirt
Everton wore a sash-designed Hummel shirt for the 2021/22 season. The red-orange sash in front was noticeable because of the clean look of the black base. Hummel’s trademark chevrons on the shoulders and sleeves used a tonal shade and subtly blended with the base colour. The overall visuals of the jersey commemorated the kit used by the Black Watch team of 1881/82 and the 140th anniversary of the club’s social programs for the community.
2020/21 Everton Away Shirt
The Everton away kit for the 2020/21 season was predominantly yellow, taking inspiration from amber yellow strips the club wore in the 1970s. Produced by Hummel, the shirt had striped arrows that went across the shoulders and faced their respective directions. Blue trims came in the form of the henley neckline and sleeve cuff pipings. Below the neckline at the backside was a slanted cursive EFC lettering.
Men’s Everton Shirt
Known as ‘St. Domingo Football Club’ in 1878, Everton first wore home shirts that comprised of white and blue striped home shirts. The club went through a period of switching shirts to most colours of the rainbow including the ‘Black Watch’ shirt which was black with a red sash. Arrival at Goodison Park saw dark blue stripes, salmon pink, ruby and finally royal blue added which remains today.
The ‘Toffees’ is Everton’s nickname which originated very early in the club’s history. It derived from Ancient Everton Toffee House which was located within a ‘mint ‘s throw’ of the Queen’s Head Hotel in Village Street, where much of Everton’s early development as a football club occurred.
The Toffees’ shirts had been worn by many famous players such as Joe Royle, Neville Southall, Gary Lineker, Kevin Sheedy, Wayne Rooney and Peter Reid. Today, Everton is composed of players such as Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison, James Rodriguez, and Jordan Pickford.
Everton were formed in 1878 and started life as St. Domingo FC, changing the name after one year to Everton. They were one of the founding members of the football league in 1888. Everton have a history of being a wealthy club from their early days, a fact that possibly helped to earn them the nickname of the Toffees. Everton play their home games at Goodison Park in Liverpool, right next door to their rivals Liverpool FC.
Neville Southall played for a total number of 751 games, making him the record-holder for most appearances for the club. Dixie Dean’s 386 goals put him on top of the team’s all time goal scoring list.
