The new vests will be made from recycled bottles and have bigger pockets than previous vests.
The vests are “neutral steel gray,” and most associates will wear bright blue trim. Associates at Walmart’s smaller Neighborhood Market stores will wear green trim. Self-checkout hosts at Walmart Supercenters will wear yellow with gray trim. And in the future, Walmart says employees will be able to choose other colors, including pink.
“Our new vests have a modernized style that takes advantage of trim detail and screen printing to introduce color in an eye-catching way,” Walmart said in a release.

Each vest is stitched with a “proud Walmart associate” on the front and a newly colorful “spark” logo on the back.
The larger pockets will let associates “carry all the equipment they need to do their jobs on the sales floor.” Employees can purchase the new vests for $11 beginning later this year.
The new vests come a year after the company announced a more relaxed dress code.
