SIX NEW SCHOOLS SUIT UP IN NIKE PRO-COMBAT SYSTEM OF DRESS
As of late, NCAA fans could easily be mistaken for fashion critics and pretty harsh ones at that. The recent reactions to both Maryland’s new uniform debut and the special retro gear created for Michigan and Notre Dame, have proven that college sports fans are very passionate when it comes to their team’s on-field attire. But this is not necessarily a new trend. Since the Nike Pro-Combat System of Dress was unleashed in 2009, the unique unis have always sparked style debates among sports fans.
Though the season has only just begun, Georgia, Boise State and Oregon have already debuted their Pro-Combat gear to the joy of some fans and dismay of others. Good or bad, the uniforms are always innovative in design and the brand puts careful thought into each element of the overall look.
According to the press release, “While each school’s uniform delivers the same superior lightweight performance and protection, each will tell a different story through its creative rendering. Nike worked closely with each university to bring relevant elements of the school’s rich heritage into a distinguished, modern uniform design. The uniforms capture each team’s character in striking detail.”
Select schools are chosen to wear the gear each season and rounding out this year’s nine are Ohio State, Michigan State, LSU, Stanford, Army and Navy. The teams revealed their new Nike Pro-Combat threads this morning. Below is a preview and for more photos check out the Nike Football facebook page here:
