The NFL revealed new Nike uniforms that each team will wear during the league’s oft-criticized all-star game on Jan. 26 at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu.
In addition to the new duds, this game will be different because the traditional AFC vs. NFC format will be changed for the first time in more than four decades. Instead, the two leading Pro Bowl vote-getters will be team captains and will select their teams from a pool determined by the votes of players, coaches and fans. The captains will be assisted by alumni captains Jerry Rice and Deion Sanders and two NFL.com fantasy football champions.
It remains to be seen whether the format changes will help revive the game, but the uniforms will certainly attempt to do their part.
Designed for optimal ventilation, the Nike NFL Nike Elite 51 Pro Bowl Uniform features a combination of lightweight, breathable fabrics. Designed and engineered from the inside out, this uniform system is built for the speed and energy of the all-pro event, and the heat of the host city - Honolulu, Hawaii. Worn by some of the league's best, the uniform features amplified design details like vibrant color accents and Pro Bowl achievement stars on the nameplates. Reflecting by the pace of the game, these concept uniforms are punctuated by accents of vibrant orange and volt.
The new uniforms are similar to ones Nike has created for college programs such as Oregon, Baylor and West Virginia.
