In addition to the standard Liverpool 17-18 away kit, which features 'Bottle Green' striping on the front, New Balance also launched a special edition of the same design featuring blue lines instead of green ones to celebrate Liverpool's 125th anniversary. This is just speculation, but we've been told that the reason for New Balance making this such a limited release is that club and brand feared backlash over the use of blue. Blue is used because it's the color of the first-ever Liverpool jersey, but it's Everton's color as well, after all.
