adidas pro model Are these the new Adidas Miami Hurricanes uniforms for 2015
But we have a good idea of what they look like. The image is blurry and of unclear origin, and appears to be taken in the UM equipment room.
According to a person who has seen the final version of the uniforms, the designs shown in the image are close to the real thing but they are not quite the real thing.
“[The imageis] legit, but it’s an older version,” the source said. They are not as retro as the mock ups Adidas used for promotional materials in February.
There are six uniform combosseen in the photo, but one of them didn make the final cut. Several months ago,
Adidas and UM decided to ditchthe all green kit (to use soccer parlance) shown in the top left corner of the image. The other five color comboswill be used this season.
The Hurricanes’ main sets versions of which are seen in the lower half of the photo are white with green numbers and lettering, with orange trim (bottom left); orange with white numbers and lettering, with green trim (bottom center); and green with white numbers and lettering, with orange trim (bottom right).
Theall white and all black kitson the top row of the photo? Those are specialty uniforms. The white is UM’s “stormtrooper” look,
used in road games. The black is for a “blackout” game (and, we believe, will be worn with a black helmet).
It’s unclear how many different helmets UM will wear, but the traditional white with the ‘U’ logo will remainthe main helmet.
UM can mix and match its looks, as it has always done: white tops with orange pants, green tops with white pants,
etc. and so on.
A retro uniform was originally planned for this year, but was scrapped.
Adidas, which in January signed UM for 12 years and an estimated $90 million, considers the Hurricanes one of its most important partners. As such, the rollout for the new uniforms is not expected to be subtle. Adidashas informed UM it is planninga high profile eventin MiamiBeach (is there any other kind?). The party, which is expected to include former Hurricanes players and big name entertainment,
is planned for July 18 at Fontainebleau.
Contrast the new almost designs from Adidas with the ones Nike rolled out last year. Which do you like?.
