An Oregon.....Fashion Statement

Nike.....makes sure....Oregon gets the best....and only the best..

From USA Today:

The University of Oregon and Nike unveiled new uniforms Tuesday that the Ducks football team will wear when they face off with Auburn on Jan. 10 in the BCS national championship game.

The uniforms, Nike's next generation of the Pro Combat line, are all white with black helmets. But the most dazzling part of the ensemble is probably the cleats and socks.

The uniform design emphasizes thermoregulation by featuring Nike Pro Deflex padding with two-way airflow to cool the body and wick away sweat. The jerseys are made of four-way stretch woven twill that sheds moisture. A Flywire collar eliminates two layers of fabric for improved breathability, providing a more stable anchor to keep the jersey in place.

The uniform also provides enhanced protection throughout the crucial "hit zone" -- between the knees and shoulders -- delivering robust padding without the bulk. Nike Pro Deflex padding has also been integrated in the hip and knee areas of the pant for crucial impact protection that stays in place. The base layer now features customizable protection, incorporating a thin, incredibly strong carbon fiber plate that comes in two different sizes and can be placed where needed.
