It is a slight cheat as Liverpool had a new away kit in 1984-85 which lasted for just one season before their switch to adidas, but let’s not constrain ourselves with too many parameters.
For the home, without going too brash, it’s hard to avoid looking so similar to what adidas did provide:
Adidas went with the same design for the second and third kits, but we’ve decided to take a bit more latitude. For the away strip, we’ve employed a style which was seen on the Portsmouth away…
…while the third takes its cues from the Leeds United kits from around this time.
