Hibs have launched their new grey third kit today – and Hibees on Twitter are split on the newest strip.
The kit went on sale this morning as the capital club rounded out their offerings for this season, just in time for this weekend’s first league game of the season.
🆕| It's not quite 50 Shades of Gray, but here's a closer look at your new third kit for season 2019/20!
🛒 Available NOW online – https://t.co/KDbBJUWptc or via the Clubstore from 10am.

The light grey shirt, with neon green piping and badge, is teamed with slate-grey shorts and socks, also with neon green piping.
The Hibs Community Foundation logo is not printed on the third kit, but can be added at a cost of £5.
Paul Heckingbottom’s side host St. Mirren this weekend in their first league fixture and will be hoping to get off to a strong start against the struggling Buddies.
With the Hibees at home this weekend, it’s unlikely Heck’s side will wear one of their change kits and will line up in their traditional green and white – much to the relief of some fans.
First up, here are some of the Hibees who are loving the new kit:
Nice to see us going back to our roots and the strip is hoops , we should bring out a green and white one next season just for the Celtic meltdown 🇳🇬

And now for those who weren’t quite so keen on the Easter Road side’s new gear:
Ohhh that’s a shocker 😂

Can’t think of one team where we need to have a third kit for, but no doubt that’ll be used all the time for profit’s sake

Woulda been so much better if the entire kit was the colour of the shorts!!

Looks a bit naff with the much lighter shirt compared to the socks and shorts.. a tone or two lighter than both and it would've looked decent af… this however… I don't know
