From the official release on the adidas corporate website:
The University of Michigan and adidas today unveiled the new “Go Blue” TECHFIT football uniform the Wolverines will wear October 11 versus Penn State.
The first head to toe blue look in school history, this new look draws inspiration from the university’s past uniforms. The jersey and pants feature metallic blue, laser-cut stripes that shine under the lights while ultra-light, no-sew metallic numbers stretch with the jersey, and the compression base layer features the Michigan “M” on the bicep and “GO BLUE” across the chest.
The rest of the release goes into the obligatory “lighter, faster, stronger, more breathable, stretchier, more cup holders, etc.” routine that we’re all familiar with by now. More photos, including closeups on the pants and striped numbers are available over at adidas. Video of the reveal is available here.
Hey listen, it’s the preseason for everyone, not just the players. Amirite? (Thanks to Rydell Commisso for catching that.)
Nike will release the Kobe 9 Elite Low Beethoven next Saturday. Why “Beethoven”?
The Kobe 9 Elite Low brings Bryant’s muses to life. The artistry of music and its ability to move and inspire people has always intrigued the athlete. From classical to pop, he has appreciation for multiple genres. The Kobe 9 Elite Low Beethoven pays tribute to the German composer and pianist, and more specifically the power of his Ninth Symphony from the early 1800s. The grey color of this colorway represents Beethoven’s timeless quality.
So, there’s that. More photos and the ability to customize over at Nike.
Last night the Orioles wore 1954 throwbacks to celebrate the franchise’s 60th anniversary of arriving in Baltimore. More photos are available over at ESPN.
Y’know who’s not a fan of the Bucs’ reflective uniform numbers? Phil, that’s who.
