Good riddance to the blue kit

When they revealed the away kit the background was blue and black not blue and white. It seemed as if it was very rushed and it was supposed to blue and black. The maroon shorts don't go at all. 

Hoping for an inter style top for next season. That or black with a better collar.

Yeah I noted that at the time, disappointing as the blue and black is great combo. 
 

id actually like the Ajax style again, but in blue and black as the away.

fair play 😂👍🏻 Each to their own.  Some folk even liked that rose berry number 

I loved the Roseberry.  Hate the blue, only short sleeves and does not go with the semmit.

Put a Hearts badge on it, and I'm fine.

I'm very much in the white top, maroon shorts, white socks camp for the away kit.

 

I despise the constant changing for no reason other than to sell overpriced clothing. The home/away colours should be a constant and the third strip can be the marketing team's toy.

I like different away kits but this blue and maroon combination is hideous tbh. Hopefully do something interesting with the next one. Inter kit, grey and white or white with maroon pinstripes I'm hoping for.

Looks like the sort of coloured sash that schoolkids wear (or used to wear) to distinguish the two sides.

 

Of course I hate the blue monstrosity. In fact most if not all Hearts strips that aren't maroon top white shorts and white socks, inverted for the second strip. 

 

I am not entirely convinced on the marketing value either. Kids (including adult kids who view a football top as a fashion item) want the latest version however subtle the yearly variation.

 

I have a particular dislike of Hearts strips that mimic those of other football clubs, like Ajax or Inter Milan.

Was bibs in my day. That or the shirt inside out.

I just like it as find quite a definitive/dramatic statement on a shirt.

Not unique to one club either with Peru, River Plate, Clydebank.

I like reverse strips with predominantly white top and maroon shorts but find boring if just white with a bit of maroon trim; this way we can have broadly that but something a bit more interesting.

I agree on slavish copy of other clubs but this would be a nod to another strip but still very Hearts.

I don't come to these important decisions lightly you know.

At least its not that canary yellow from Dens in that Mo Berthe game.... 🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮

Pretty sure we wore white in the Mo Berthe game.

Canary yellow "custard tarts" game at Dundee saw a Mo Johnston brace.

 

IIRC.

Its a long time ago, but I think the strip went with that game as it seemed to stick in my memory.  Could be proved wrong of course.

 

The game was a shocker.

I like this too. 

 

I'm  maybe in the minority, but I do like full maroon. Think it looks better for some reason, would like to see it trialled for a season. 

 

As far as away kits go, would prefer if 99% of the time its white with the odd weird one every now and then to freshen things up. Roseberry was bogging, but it was still better than this seasons 'effort'. Don't think we made enough use of the black kit either - Did we even wear it 3 times?

FFS - are you implying your semmit matches the Rosebery strip ????   Have you thought about washing it ??

Hearts away kits of the 90's with maroon shorts preferably are good examples of how to keep it simple.

There's certain clubs/teams who should never be made to wear away/alternate kits:

 

Hearts, Brazil, Liverpool, Juve, Barca, Real...

 

The 1977-82 inverted white shirt and 1983-86 silver are the only two I've ever loved.

 

Never liked the Inter shirt.

Would like white and silver like a few folk have suggested above. Something like the allsports one of the early 2000's would be good.

Should be reduced in price soon. Noticed the third kit still full price for adult but reduced for kids

Over hyped and hardly used, still a decent kit but the blue wasn't the right shade for me, similar to the current away/training kit blue.

Wish they’d just give us a silver away top and be done with it!😁

 

I really think you could give the 80s version a cracking modern update. No Grandad collars etc....

 

A nice distinguished collar from the strip colour.  Maybe a 1998 maroon/white job with the silver top . I know we did some hybrid nod collar in recent times?
 

I quite like the neat and tidy collar size on the 17/18 top. Plain maroon shorts with just the Umbro logo in white and a no badge.  Maybe some hidden motif to authenticate them.


White socks with the classic continuous Umbro logo in silver around the turnovers.

A minority opinion as mates at the time all bought it and it still seems to be much loved.

Amen to that!

 

Absolutely disgusted with it aesthetically and impossible to separate with most of our away form.

 

Candy stripe, white with maroon please .

Sorry but any shade of blue is just not right on a Hearts strip!

Maroon and white only.

The canary yellow 'classic' was worn season 93/94 twice. We got beat the first game at Dens and won the second game.

 

Mo Berthe was much later.

Agreed although Hearts wore blue when we won the Scottish Cup back in the early days.

This strip just oozing pure class and is the real image of HMFC as well as the reverse home kit. It is also a reminder of the day the monkey got off our back on the glorious day in 98! ❤️

For an old codger like me it should be in the club constitution that this must be worn by the team as our permanent away strip 😊

The club can produce as many fancy leisure tops it wants for you young fellas to wear to the gym or stage weekends! 👍

Not the worst away kit we've had... Definitely doesn't deserve it's own thread. 

 

First two adidas away kits we had were brutal teamwear crap.

Was the 97/98 and 98/99 away the same design but with the Olympic Sportswear logo changed?

Just thought I would mention that we’ve kept away strips as third kits twice in recent times (the navy blue and the black one), I hope that’s not the case for all those that hate this strip 😆

Almost the same, the Olympic logo changed as you say but the club badge was also changed.

 

A lot of fans are still unhappy about the badge change to this day.

 

Sleeve badges and numbers / names and numbers also changed. 

 

Here are a couple of players shirts from those seasons, the club shop ones didn't have embroidered badges but you get the idea.

The maroon lettering and numbering is something which has been missed for several years. I'm not sure if it's the league who decided to have them in limited colours or if the club have just been lazy.
