As you can see by the comment section in our post on Nike’s Pro-Combat line, there is A LOT of interest in the launch. And to give each take a fair shake we’ll try to feature the uniforms as Nike releases Hi-Res previews of the program’s 10 teams. Here we have the Bobby Stoops’ Oklahoma Sooners.
Nike designers immersed themselves in Oklahoma Sooners history and lore to bring inspirational cues to the look and direction of the Nike Pro Combat uniforms.
The uniforms respect the past of Sooner football, drawing inspiration from Bud Wilkinson’s famed “fast break offense” that led the nation in scoring and won National Championships in 1955 and 1956. An all-white helmet is a nod to the teams that played during that era (1946 to 1956), as are the clean lines on the jersey and pant.
Oklahoma’s team mantra “Sooner Magic” is printed on the inside of the jersey collar and on the cuff of the Nike Vapor Trail 2.0 gloves the team will wear.
What does Sooner Magic do for you? David Copperfield or GOB Bluth? Let us know in the comment section.
