Nike's New Football Cleats
New Uniforms for Oregon State
Nike has released their newest line of football cleats that include the Nike Alpha Menace Elite 2, Nike Force Savage Elite 2, and the Nike Vapor Untouchable 3. The Nike Alpha Menace Elite 2 cleats are built for those multidirectional athletes such as Saquon Barkley and Russell Wilson. The cleat features a midfoot strap with TPU yarns in the forefoot to protect the feet from getting stepped on.
The Nike Force Savage Elite 2, has been designed for players in the trenches like Khalil Mack. The cleat comes with a redesigned cleat plate for optimal comfort and traction. Nike switched it up and instead of laces, they used three straps to work with a burrito tongue and allow for quick tightening adjustments in-between plays.
The cleats look to add flair and style to each player while bringing the most innovative technology to the football field.
Chargers' New Primary Powder Blue Jerseys
Oregon State football has released their new uniforms for the upcoming season. The Beavers drew inspiration from the tall trees that surround the campus and the stories that have. Within the numbers we see a ring pattern that is seen on the inside of the tree that tells its story. The tops of the shoulders show off a stripe that continues down both sides of the pants. The team introduced three color options with a full black, orange, and “Natural” an off white uniform combinations that will allow them to mix and match throughout the season. The black helmet was the only helmet introduced with all three looks and features the Oregon State Beaver logo on each side with a solid orange stripe down the middle. It will be interesting to see if Oregon State has some alternate helmets to throw in this season.
New Uniforms for Arena Football
The Los Angeles Chargers revealed that their iconic powder blue jerseys will serve as their primary home uniform in 2019. To accompany the powder blue look, the Chargers will also wear the gold facemask that we most recently saw them rock with their color rush uniform. The Chargers were actually the first team in NFL history to wear a colored facemask when they first took the field with them on their blue helmet back in 1974.
“The powders are NICE! There’s just something special when you put them on. You get a whole different feeling. A whole different vibe. Seeing that powder blue in the stadium and all your brothers wearing it, it’s a great feeling. Knowing we’re wearing that more is exciting…. Before I even came to the Chargers I knew about the powder blues. When I came out here and got to put it on, it’s an honor. You hear it around the nation – the powder blues are the best in sports. So getting to wear them more, it feels like we get to turn up more.” - All-Pro safety Adrian Phillips
Penn State 'Generations of Greatness' Uniforms
The Arena Football league has introduced their new uniforms for the upcoming 2019 season. Each team received a home and away set of unis that featues unique designs that was inspired by their hometown cities. See all the designs below.
New West Virginia Football Uniforms
Penn State announced the return of the ‘Generations of Greatness’ special throwback uniforms for their game on 10/5. The special uniforms will feature the numbers on the helmets just as they did in the 1959-61 & 1967-74 era, along with gray facemasks that we saw the Nittany Lions wear from 1970-72. The jerseys will have block numbers the same that donned the Blue & White from the mid-1950s to 1966, as well as the jersey will feature an image of the Lion Shrine on the front collar of the jersey. On the sleeves we see white stripes that have come and gone many times throughout Penn State Football’s history. Down the sides of the pants is a single blue stripe that were worn during 1952-68 era. The look is completed with white cleats and striped socks that pay tribute to the 1970’s era. This look is a great way to pay tribute to the past while giving the Nittany Lions a new uniform combination.
Baylor Football New Uniforms
West Virginia Football introduced the next chapter for their football uniforms. The Mountaineers are not straying much from their traditional look with Blue and Gold. The team will don the Nike Vapor Untouchable uniform chassis in 2019. This template gives the Mountaineers an improved fit and functionally, reduced seams and grab points, shaped inseams, seamless fronts and shoulders to help leverage speed, improved moisture absorption and better all-around comfort. West Virginia will return to four color options for their jerseys and pants to choose from for the upcoming season. After spending the past six seasons only using three colors of jerseys and pants the color gray has returned to the lineup with gray jersey and pants combo that last appeared in game action back in 2012. The 2019 version for football will be Nike's Steel Gray colorway and is a tribute to the toughness of the hard-working people in the state of West Virginia and the strength that all Mountaineers possess.
"The opportunity for Nike to work with a tradition-rich program like West Virginia is very exciting," Nike Senior Director, College Sports Marketing, Kit Morris said. "The history and success of the Mountaineers provide much to inspire us as we continue to seek to become better together. There is no finish line."
Michigan State Alternate Uniform
Baylor has introduced a new refreshed look for their football team. The team has drawn inspiration from their past uniform color scheme to create the new look. We see the the gold and green stand out a lot more throughout each new uniform. The helmets feature the standard BU logo lock on each side but look for Baylor to switch it up with the retro bear like they did last season. The team has also introduced a new bear logo that can be seen on the neck line of each jersey.
Utah Spring Game Helmets
Michigan State has released an alternate look that the spartans will hit the field in this coming season. The alternate look is highlighted with neon green throughout the design. The Spartans will use their base green helmet for the uni combo and feature neon green Spartan helmet decals on either side of the helmet. Across the chest of the jersey we see in the same neon green the word STATE, while on each shoulder there is the neon green spartan helmet logo. The alternate uniform is completed with neon green pants and neon green gloves and cleats, giving Michigan State different look then we have seen in the past for the Spartans.
Mizzou Football Helmets
The Utah Utes Football team will be wearing special decals for their annual spring game this year. Each player on both sides of the ball will the double U logo with a golden ribbon attached to it. The logo is in honor of raising awareness for pediatric cancer. As well as the team will welcome welcome 10 pediatric cancer patients and their families to the annual spring game.
Missouri Football has introduced their Spring Game helmets for this season that will turn back the clocks a little. The Spring Game decals will have the retro Missouri paw logo with the M found within the paw on each side of the helmet. The center stripe will be the thick white and yellow traditional stripe that has been seen in the past for Mizzou. The stripe will remain for the Tigers as they head out of the Spring game and into next season, going away from the stripe we saw last season.
