Nike Releases Alabama’s BCS Championship Uniforms

Traditional Alabama uniforms have always been Crimson and White with little variation on the classic colors.  When Nike came out with the Pro Combat Uni’s several years ago some teams went a little crazy and love them or hate them it’s just the way it is.  Some players thrive on wearing flashy new designs or doing the black-outs and white-outs or “pick your color or the week-outs”.  Then you have some teams like Oregon that seem to have a different uniform for every game.  So when Nike released the Pro Combat Uni’s that Alabama would be wearing for the BCS National Championship game some cringed with what they may see, but Alabama holds true to that great Tradition with a slightly new look.

Per a Nike release:

The Crimson Tide uniforms will be upgraded to include Nike Chain Maille Mesh – a lightweight, ultra-breathable material that emphasizes improved thermoregulation. This new fabrication is incorporated into the back and under the arms of the jersey for exceptional ventilation without sacrificing durability. The white-on-white look, embellished with crimson accents, creates the iconic, bold silhouette for which the Tide is famous.

Alabama will also wear the new Nike Pro Combat Hypercool Speed Top featuring Nike Dri-Fit fabrication that transports moisture and sweat from the skin to the outside of the top, leaving the body cool and dry. Regulated for the weather with increased breathability and a streamlined fit, this revolutionary baselayer top features new innovative venting systems including laser perforation pods in a unique design pattern that help the body regulate temperature. It also features reinforced bonded seams as well as premium mesh underarm gussets for increased thermoregulation.

 

Alabama’s uniforms will be specially designed to improve temperature control  keeping Alabama players cooler than any uniform designed by Nike before.  Given that it will be in the 80′s all week and higher temps at game time it should help keep the players cooler.

I would also imagine that Notre Dame will come out with their classic uniforms too to make this a true Traditional match-up.
