adidas has released the 2017 U.S. Army All-American Bowl Game uniforms that top athletes will be rocking in the Alamodome. Players will wear the Army’s iconic Black and Gold “‘Badge of Honor’ camouflage jacquard” patterned unis which were inspired by military ribbons. Athletes in black will be representing the East while those in gold will be representing the West, which will be reflected on their left shoulder as well.
To incorporate elements of the traditional military uniform, “adidas Football developed new materials and application techniques exclusively for this uniform”. “Unique design elements include a KEVLAR® weave incorporated into the player numbers, traditional military uniform nametape on the right side of the chest and the U.S. Flag patch on the right arm. Additionally, the numbers and shoulder stripes are highlighted by reflective materials and serve as homage to the infrared reflective strips utilized on the Army's PT (physical training) uniforms.”
Both team’s helmets will feature the matte yellow and matte black colors and elements that pay tribute to the U.S. Army helicopter pilots. Each lid will have the player’s last name across the back as well.
“To complete the head-to-toe package, both squads will don special edition "Dipped" monochromatic cleats infused with a reflective digi-camo pattern that mirrors the 'Badge of Honor' pattern in the jerseys and pants.”
adidas did not just stop with producing TECHFIT unis, but the athletes will rock “a TECHFIT baselayer, tights, arm sleeves and adizero 5-Star gloves that feature the 'Badge of Honor' camouflage jacquard pattern.”
