The story behind the shirt…
The jersey is a modern twist on a traditional Hearts home kit with subtle centre stripe colour blocking, running diamonds at the cuffs and piping at the neckline. The reverse neck of the shirt features a bespoke club sign off.
In 1977, Umbro introduced the iconic running diamond to the field of play. In the following decades the double diamond continued to adapt with the ever-changing face of the game. For the new season, Umbro’s taping story has evolved, moving from the tradition to the contemporary. A fresh outlook on a football staple.
All kits are constructed in lightweight durable fabrics and executed with great fit which can withstand the pressures of the modern game, whilst creating a wearable uniform for the fan. To aid comfort ergonomic mesh panels have been constructed at the underarm providing maximum breathability.
