West Ham United have all new kits for a new era this summer which as usual have divided opinion among supporters.

West Ham fans love to see a bit of effort made with their kits whether they respect tradition, go retro or try to be original.

It is all change for the Hammers this summer with new manager Manuel Pellegrini coming in and nearly £100 million being spent on transfers so far.

And as is the case every season nowadays the Hammers have all new kits as well with Umbro releasing their penultimate set of strips before their deal with the club expires in 2020.

The Hammers have revealed new home and away strips as well as a grey third strip.

 

The strips have divided opinion among fans on forums and social media with many feeling there is not enough blue on the the sleeves of the home shirt and not taking to the bright yellow socks of the away kit.

It is nigh on impossible to keep all fans happy when it comes to kits.

But speaking to the Supporters Advisory Board earlier this month, vice-chairman Karren Brady dangled a carrot to creative Hammers fans that they could be involved in future kit designs.

“Karren Brady answered that it is a possibility that a small group could have a briefing session with
Umbro,” Brady said in response to a question over fan input on future kit designs according to the minutes from the July 12 meeting published on whufc.com.

West Ham fans will undoubtedly relish the chance to influence future kits, even it is just to be involved in the selection process from a set of designs.
