Oregon's latest uniforms - Nike sets the bar again
- by Doug Samuels 1 year ago
In a much anticipated move, Oregon unveiled their latest uniform addition earlier today.
Eleven different materials are used in the jerseys and pants, with 16 different materials total used for adapt to the specific needs of the players during game day.
The feathers on the shoulder pads are similar to the ones that they wore in the Rose Bowl last season, and a new material, called "Chain Maille Mesh" was incorporated into the uniform to make it the "lightest and fastest uniform ever made."
Word is that a metallic green helmet, much like their chrome Rose Bowl helmet from last year will also be in the mix.
Chip Kelly weighed in on the new technology being featured and the new look overall.
"Nike has always done a tremendous job of integrating the input they have gathered from our players with a cutting-edge technology that maximizes their performance on the field. Every year I ask how they possibly can surpass their previous innovations and every year they deliver. Once again, Nike has set the standard in revolutionary uniform design."
