The Dolphins CEO, Tom Garfinkel, has revealed the white throwbacks that will be worn on Sept. 15 during a home game against the New England Patriots. The game will fall on Dan Marino’s 58th birthday and a perfect time to break out the retro look. These have quickly become a fan favorite and we will see if the team switches back to them full time.
Steelers Throwback Jersey
The most recent Grey Cup Winners for the CFL, The Calgary Stampeders received their 2018 Grey Cup rings. The championship rings are made from 10-karat white and yellow gold and have a total of 201 white diamonds creating the Stampeders’ iconic white horse and the words “Grey Cup Champions” on the face. On the right side we see the championship year, as well as eight trophies to commemorate all the championships the organization has won over the years. The left side features the players names, number and position set with diamonds throughout. We see on the inside of the ring the team motto “12 Strong” and the final score of the Grey Cup Championship game.

The throwback unis we first saw hit the field last season in Week 8 agains the Cleveland Browns honor the 40th anniversary of Super Bowl XIII. The traditional block numbers and bold shoulder stripes will be back on the Steelers again this season.

Each player will wear a patch on their left chest that features the number 100 with the bears head on it.

2019 NFL Draft Hats
When the #1 overall pick Kyler Murray hit the stage to accept his Cardinals jersey from the Commissioner he was rocking a custom 1-of-1 pair of shoes. Nike created the 1-of-1 custom PE Air Jordan 1 Lows with full patent leather that featured a pink embroidered Swoosh and a green light post embroidered on the heel. The light post was a nod to Kyler’s favorite movie, The Great Gatsby. To finish off the one of a kind pair of kicks the tongue showed off the Nike K1 logo along with the 2019 NFL Draft. We will keep you posted as Nike’s newest superstars rolls out more unique swag.
Texans Add Logo on the Backs of Jerseys
The NFL Draft is right around the corner and we will see the new wave of players drafted to their new teams. As they cross the stage dressed to impress the players will be given this year’s Draft Hat before they reach Roger Goodell to pose for some photos. As this season marks the 100th season of the NFL the theme that was created for the hats is centered around each team’s local flag. On the backs of each hat we will see the NFL 100 logo as well as the flag that inspired the design of each hat will be found on the inside.
“This idea as we go through to celebrate the past of the NFL and innovation of where it’s moving, we really wanted to start with where the game began within each local community. It’s a unique way to say this is where we started, this is who we are, this is what we’re about, this is the community we represent. At the same time it tells a separate story of welcoming a new member into that community. Really trying to tell this message of this is where we’re going, this is who we represent and welcome into the community.” - Ryan DiNunzio, New Era’s director of football
So far all teams have released their hat except for the New York Jets who are about to unveil their new logo and uniform this week.
Nike's New Football Cleats
The Houston Texans have announced a slight change to the game uniforms going forward. Now located on the back neck area will be the Texans bull head sitting right above the players name, to provide another touch point for the team and their pride within the Houston community.
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.
