A change in footwear is to see one Premiership football side revert to its old sock colours, it has been revealed.
Launching their new home kit for the 2008-09 season, Sunderland AFC, also known as the Black Cats, are once again to sport red socks
It will be the first time this colour of sock
will be worn since their last season playing at Roker Park.
Following the club's move to their new Stadium of Light ground 11 years ago, black socks
have been adopted into the home kit.
Commenting on the new strip, Sunderland boss Roy Keane said: "It's always great to see so many fans in their colours at games."
The manager, who used to be the captain of Manchester United, added that supporters of the Black Cats are sure to "love the new design".
The sport socks
, along with the rest of the new kit, go on sale from May 7th and are available via mail order or through any of the official Sunderland club stores.
Meanwhile, in response to a recent letter, the Sock Shop Stylist
advised that "socks
are an important part of your gym kit" and that they can be useful in protecting feet from overheating.
