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 Sweater Vest’s own Ohio State Buckeyes.
Nike designers immersed themselves in Ohio State history and lore to bring inspirational cues to the look and direction of the Nike Pro Combat uniforms.
The uniform draws inspiration from the Buckeyes’ proud football tradition, particularly the teams of the 1950s. In 1954, Ohio State used a goal line stand to defeat Michigan en route to capturing the National Championship. To salute that victory of 55 years ago the Buckeyes are wearing all-white helmets with their clean-look uniforms.
The motto “BUCKEYE TRADITION” is embroidered on the inner collar of every Ohio State jersey collar as well as on the cuff of the Nike Vapor Trail 2.0 gloves.
What do the New Buckeyes do for you? Let us know in the comment section…
