Fashion may be the farthest thing from a football fan’s mind... until you start messing with team uniforms.

 

After a decade with Reebok, the NFL revealed its new Nike unis on Tuesday — a new frontier for the apparel giant after it turned heads at the University of Oregon.



So what’s the early reaction? ESPN’s Dan Graziano says given the hype, Nike fell flat.

 

“That's it? Those are the new uniforms everyone's so excited about? Swear to god, the NFL could sell ice cubes in Antarctica.”

 

SB Nation’s Joel Thorman points out, the change isn’t all about looks:

 

“Nike … didn't just change the color schemes of their new uniforms -- they enhanced the technology as well. The new uniforms are lighter, stronger and more form-fitting to allow no distractions for the player while he's on the field.”

 

Most teams won’t see obvious changes — but as KCPQ reports, the Seattle Seahawks threw their old jerseys to the wind.

 

“You will definitely notice a change with the Seahawks’ uniform and their logo.”


“I don’t know if Seahawks nation is going to go for this or not.”
 

 

Nike says, football fans won’t just watch the new jerseys — they’ll want to wear them. Nike’s Charles Denson talked prices to CNBC:

 

“That’s the game jersey at $250 retail. Then there will be more of a fan-friendly jersey that will be also launched at $100 on draft-day weekend.”

 

For all the hype, some may be let down by the new design after early photos signaled major changes, including a Patriots jersey that would have turned Tom Brady into Captain America.

 

But the Washington Post says those pictures were fakes — even if they’re the first ‘new NFL uniforms’ images on Google.
