Stoke City 16-17 Kits Released

Just a few days after announcing a new kit partnership with Italian brand Macron, Stoke City this morning unveiled the new home and away kits for the upcoming 2016-17 season. The first-ever Macron Stoke City home kit will be worn in the last Premier League game of the season, at home against West Ham on May 15.

Stoke City 16-17 Home Kit

This is the new Stoke City home jersey.

The Stoke City home shirt is all about the club's traditional red and white stripes. Four red and three white stripes run down the front of the new Stoke City kit, while the back is mostly white in order to offer improved readability for player names and numbers. The sleeves of the new Stoke City Macron jersey also show the stripes, with the cuffs being white.

Fittingly, a classic collar rounds off the no-nonsense design of the Stoke City 2016-2017 home shirt. When upturned, the collar reveals a panel of red and white stripes, as well as a navy blue line that runs around the neckline.

White shorts and socks, both with detailing in red and blue, complete the iconic look of the new Stoke City 16-17 kit.

Stoke City 2016-17 Away Kit

This is the new Stoke City away kit.

The new Macron Stoke City 16-17 away shirt is sky blue and draws inspiration from the kits Stoke wore in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Featuring a traditional henley collar in white, the Stoke City 2016-2017 away jersey also boasts an embossed S, inspired by the first-ever Stoke City kit in 1882.

Shorts and socks in the same color of the shirt complete the all-sky blue look of the Stoke City 16-17 away kit.
