Since the launch of the new home and away shirt yesterday, social media have given their reaction to the new kits.Both the home and away kits are modelled on the one worn in the memorable game against Sheffield Wednesday in 1991 when Latics were crowned Division Two champions.
Here are a selection of responses on Twitter:

Best kit we've had for 10 years about time we went back to all blue home kit and even though the away kit is red it's very nice really good design

I don't care who makes it, or who owns the company that makes it. It looks really good. Will buy home kit once in shops.
