Nike Takes Lid Off New NFL Uniforms; Jets, Giants Threads Unveiled

NEW YORK (WFAN) — Nike made its introduction to the NFL in a big way Tuesday.

With Commissioner Roger Goodell on hand, the sportswear giant unveiled its new line of NFL uniforms in New York City. Various members of the media tweeted photos before and during the presentation, giving fans a much-anticipated look at the new threads.

Jets running back Shonn Greene and Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz — plus a representative from each of the other 30 teams — modeled the new look for Nike:

Giants equipment director Joe Skiba said on a video posted to the team’s website that “nothing has really changed from our end.” He pointed to Nike’s Flywire collar as a slight difference to the iconic blue and white tops.

“It kind of holds the neck collar down,” he said.

The new pants feature mesh side panels and padding around the belt area to protect players’ hips.

Skiba also made an announcement regarding the Giants’ home and away bottoms:

“We’re only going with one game-pant next year in preparation for (the) 2013 season. That’s all I can elaborate on, but throughout the year hopefully we’ll have some updates for you.”

Nike recently took over gear design from Reebok, who found themselves unable to sell Tim Tebow Jets apparel due to a lawsuit from the Oregon-based company last week.

    White pants have been out since the 2000 season. The home and away pants were both grey but with different stripes. Hopefully one pair of pants is setting up for ’80’s era alternates next year.
