The Black Cats take 80's inspiration for their new 21/22 Home Kit.
Inspired by the club’s first Nike kit worn from 1983 to 1986, the remixed design also takes elements from the club’s 1995-97 away strip and 2009-10 home shirt.
Featuring a white base to provide an 80s’ vibe, the fading stripes throw back to SAFC’s yellow Avec shirt from the mid-90s to build one of the most bespoke designs in the club’s recent history.
Echoes of the Lads’ 2009-10 shirt also subtly influence the bespoke design, as a large abstract crest adorns the front of the garment.
Paired with black shorts and red socks, the shirt once again proudly displays the logo of the club’s principal partner, Great Annual Savings.
