A Closer Look at Nike Pro-Combat Virginia Tech

As you can see by the comment section in our post on Nike’s Pro-Combat Uniforms, there is A LOT of interest in the launch of the line. And to give each take a fair shake we’ll try to individually feature the uniforms as Nike releases Hi-Res previews on the program’s 10 teams. Starting here with Frank Beamer’s Virginia Tech Hokies.

Nike designers immersed themselves in Virginia Tech Hokies history and lore to bring inspirational cues to the look and direction of the Nike Pro Combat uniforms.

The Virginia Tech Corp of Cadets, an integral part of the Virginia Tech student body since 1872, is honored with the university motto “UT PROSIM,” meaning “That I may serve” on the back of the pant, on the cuff of the Nike Vapor Trail 2.0 gloves and printed on the sock liner of the Nike Zoom Vapor Fly cleat.

The gradient fade pattern on the helmet, numbers and pants represent the legendary speed of Hokies football, particularly in the era of coach Frank Beamer. His prolific “Beamerball” style of play, which is honored inside the collar of each jersey, means every player, every position is able and prepared to score.
