Newcastle United have had some smart away shirts over the year. The 1995 maroon and blue adidas shirt with the granddad collar as worn by Rob Lee comes to mind, as does the 1988 green and yellow Umbro shirt.
They do not however come close to the 1993-95 Newcastle United away shirt made by Asics.
The shirt, made by Asics who were the official Newcastle United kit maker from 1993-95 sandwiched between Umbro and adidas. It has a great sponsor in ‘McEwan’s Lager’ and a bright blue mottled texture that looks like huge paint strokes. It’s reminiscent of a Van Gogh oil painting. It has a black collar and white hoop on the sleeve.
It was worn by Newcastle in the early 90s in the Toon Army’s first season back in the Premier League when Kevin Keegan’s attacking side finished third, with Andy Cole banging in 41 goals in 46 games.
