  In 1985 Liverpool changed their kit manufacturer after a long association with Umbro. The new kit supplier was Adidas and the new kit was actually in use at the end of the 1984-85 season for the fateful Heysel European Cup Final. The first Adidas Liverpool kit was plain red with the three Adidas stripes in white on the shoulders and the sides of the shorts. The stripe effect also carried on through the V-neck of the shirt along with the end of the sleeves, Within the stripes of the shirt the Liver bird and the Adidas badge are repeated and can only be seen on close inspection, The club sponsors remained Crown Paints.

  This was not first in history club, when in one of match end season, Liverpool used kits next season. This was how in Friendly, as in official matches. For example, in matches:
  European Cup Final, vs Juventus (Turin, Italy), 29.05.1985.
  Full list to see here.

  In season 1985-86, Liverpool starter in shirt Crown Paints on two lines, but after New Year, the design Crown Paints logo was change, written on one line. Why was change sponsor logo, I not know (may be with problems with TV).

  In season 1986-87, Liverpool again starter in shirt Crown Paints on two lines. Written on two lines so it became larger (and easier to see on a TV screen), The shirt badges upon the replica shirts are an embossed material where as they would have been fully stitched upon the players issue shirts, a trend that has been seen through the majority of Liverpool shirt since.

  In season 1985-86, Liverpool used home shirt with special embroidery, this was in matches FA Cup Final (10.05.1986) & Testimonial Phil Neal (12.08.1985).

            

  This shirt may have been one of the last possible, final designs for Liverpool's 1985-7 home shirt. Owner this prototype shirt who sold on eBay, written what this prototype shirt was offer management Liverpool F C for season 1987-88.

  Code "sample" on the tag, only for .Adidas prototype shirt.

  How to distinguish a home shirt of a season 1985-86 from a home & second home shirt of a seasons 1986-87 & 1987-88, very difficultly, only for design player number (below).

  I think what in sale, home replica shirt with Crown Paints logo in one line, not was. One interesting, I have some photos with season 1986-87, when Liverpool Reserves played in away match versus Leicester City (26.08.1986), in home shirts with Crown Paints logo in one line (photo in left John Durnin). Was this only in one or more matches in Central League, I not know.

  Once again there were two different types of sponsorship logos worn by the players; a double-lined version (shown above) and a single-lined version. The general consensus amongst collectors is that the single-lined sponsored version is slightly rarer; however I only seek one of the designs as the two shirts are otherwise identical. Genuine match worn shirts feature an embroidered Adidas badge (with two registered ® trademarks) and an embroidered Liverbird. No long sleeve replicas were ever released. If you cannot distinguish a player shirt from a replica or a semifinished item, consult to Michael Yip (www.liverpoolkits.com).
