Liverpool Third Kit Socks
Inexpensive and durable, the socks – like the rest of the Reds’ kit – are made by New Balance, a US based clothing manufacturing giant. They have been designed with comfort in mind, feature a cushioned footbed and are made from breathable material. Their design inspiration comes from the original wooden signage of the famous Kop stand and is dubbed “Bold Citrus”. They are trimmed with a dark collar and brims and are made of 97% Polyamide and 3% Elastane.
