University of Miami & adidas Unveil New Alternate Football Uniforms

With football season almost upon, Adidas has teamed up with the University of Miami for their football squad's 2017 alternate uniforms.

The collaborative designs sport an all-green theme, which will make its on-field debut at Hard Rock Stadium on Sept. 23 vs. Toledo; and an all-black look that will be worn on Oct. 12 vs. Georgia Tech.

The designs build on the retro theme of "The Legend of the U" uniforms that debuted in 2016, with the intent of creating throwback uniforms that echoes the past while looking to the future. With the dynasty years that saw four national championships over an eight-year span (1983, 1987, 1989, 1991) as inspiration, the new uniforms feature a modern twist on the 80’s aesthetic, with new "State of Miami" all-green and "Miami Nights" all-black looks.

The "State of Miami" alternate is highlighted with bold white stripes and accented with orange outlines to match the white numbers, with orange outlines on the jerseys. White helmets sport an oversized "U" logo on the sides, while matching white socks, accessories and cleats with orange offering accenting for the all-green look.

The "Miami Nights" look is centered around an all-black theme, with both the jerseys and pants highlighted with bold green stripes and accented with orange outlines to offset the white numbers with orange outlines on the jerseys. The team will wear black helmets with the oversized "U" logo on the sides, alongside matching black socks, accessories and cleats with orange accents.

Both uniforms sport Adidas' Primeknit technology, while featuring the latest generation of adidas TECHFIT technology. The jersey's padlock system secures tension over the shoulder pads, while the bodymap fit adheres to the player, making it difficult for opponents to grab, hold or tackle.
