2006-2007 Third Champions League Player Shirt
Liverpool was once sponsored by Adidas from 1985 to 1996. Starting from season 2006-2007 onwards, Liverpool has signed a sponsorship contract with Adidas again, and this is the first third player shirt under the "New Adidas" era.
Featured Craig Bellamy's famous golfing posture after scoring at Nou Camp against Barcelona in the Champions League on 21 February 2007. Liverpool 2006-2007 Champions League Match Supplied Shirt - This shirt comes directly from Nou Camp after the match. Luis Garcia was injured before the match but the Liverpool kit manager did bring along his spare shirt to Nou Camp.
The Adidas 2006-2007 players shirts are characterised by using the formotion seamless design. As expected, there is a climacool tag on the replica
(left) and white formotion tag is only found on player shirt (right).
There is a peanut shape adidas laser-label (left) on the front bottom side of the replica (on the opposite side of the climacool tag). However, such laser-label
is absent on the player shirt (right).
Left: From the inner side of the replica, you can see the uncovered sewn-on adidas motif.
Right: From the inner side of the player shirt, the sewn-on  adidas motif is covered by a thin layer of protective semi-transparent velveeteen.
The purpose is to prevent rubbing of players' body if they don't wear a tee beneath the soccer shirt.

The so-called " formotion" is a texture-breakthrough called "seamless design" (just like Nike shirts from 2005-06 era).
Upon a closer look, we can see there are no signs of "seamless design" on the replica (left). Seamless means the joints are not stitched up but instead glued up.
If you compare with the player shirt (right), you can roughly see shadowed-shinny portion along the joints - not stitched by threads but in fact glued up by glue.
This is what Adidas call "seamless design".
