Charlton Athletic’s brand new, 90s inspired away kit for the 2018/19 season has been revealed.
The white shirt takes its influence from the club’s change strip which was worn during the 1994/95 and 1995/96 seasons and features bold, red and black stripes.
2018/19’s iteration is reversed with the stripes running vertically and a cross-over pattern at the centre of the badge. It also sees a return of the Addicks’ famous crest to the middle of the chest on a shirt for the first time since 2008/09.
The hummel kit was chosen following consultation with a number of fan groups, who identified the mid-90s strip, which was worn by the likes of Lee Bowyer, as being particularly popular with supporters, leading the kit manufacturer to use it as inspiration for the new strip.
The shirt, modelled by Chris Solly, Tariqe Fosu and women’s team players Kit Graham and Hannah Churchill, also feature hummel’s distinctive black chevrons running down both sleeves, a diagonal mesh side seam, red trip on the sleeves and a fitted collar.
It is complemented by black shorts with a red trim on the base of the shorts and white chevrons, as well as white socks with red trip and red chevrons.
Supporters will be able to see the away strip in action for the first time during Charlton’s home friendly against Brighton & Hove Albion at The Valley on Tuesday, July 24th (7.45pm) and will be available to purchase from Wednesday, August 1st both in person from the Valley Superstore and online.
Adult shirts will be priced £45, while shorts will be available for £25 and socks £12.
Meanwhile, kids shirts will be priced £35, with shorts priced at £18 and socks £10.
