Nike unveils Packers’ 2012 uniforms

Posted by Duke Bobber on April 3, 2012 – 1:27 pm

Nike unveiled the 2012 uniforms of all 32 NFL teams on Tuesday morning in New York. The highly anticipated event didn’t carry any surprises for Packers fans. The uniforms still bear the familiar colors and marks worn by the team since the sleeve stripes were reduced from five to three in 1997. In spite of some April Fools’ Day trickery, the helmet ‘G’ emblem isn’t going anywhere.

Nike is changing the material of the uniforms for some clubs, but the Packers have elected to maintain their existing uniform fabrication for the coming season.

    I’m glad they didn’t change the Packers’ uniforms. In fact, I’m glad there wasn’t much change to most of the teams’ jerseys, but I think Nike missed an opportunity to change some of the jerseys that are truly ugly, like the Titans, Jags, and Panthers.

    The changes are more in the way the uniforms are built than the overall color design. The NFL was known for being very traditional with uniforms and Nike understood that any drastic changes would upset the market place. However, the uniforms look a lot slicker and more modern when viewed in person.

    In addition, Nike has launched a full line of “sideline” gear and fan gear, which I have to say I really do like.

    Why do people refer to the situation in a way that suggests Nike could’ve made any decisions whatsoever what the team’s jerseys look like? Saying “I’m glad Nike didn’t [whatever]” or “Nike should’ve changed [whatever] ugly jersey” makes no sense.

    Each team is in control of just about every aspect of its uniform aesthetics and, for now, somewhat in control of the material used to make them.

    Every time I saw someone say something like, “ZOMG if Nike turns the PACK into the Oregon Ducks I’ma go FLIPPIN’ CRAZY ON THEY BUTTS!” I just shook my head.

    @Philip, exactly. Nike cant do anything that the team or league disagrees with. As you can read in the article, the Packers even got their choice on the fabric used.

    THANK YOU, NFL for allowing freedom of choice by each team on this … some of the Nike uniform changes will look good, yes, but this is Green Bay, Wisconsin, not Eugene, Oregon (and the Oregon Ducks)! Ducks college football uniforms by Nike were cool the first 3-4 versions … but 85 variations (I’m exaggerating)?! PLEASE. It’s like seeing RED Yankee baseball caps … red is NOT a Yankees color, dudes (I’m not a Yankees fan, either). That’s for fashion-istas, not franchise tradition. Franchises choose their color schemes when they are born (altho, yes, they can change it later) — The reason (in my mind) the Packers uniforms are classic is that, by minimal if any change, they have REMAINED historic, and thus emblematic of Green Bay’s tradition (class organization and class athletes, good folk, representative of its community and state).

    I think the Packers are foolish if they dont take advantage of the new nike uniform(fyi the Packers opted to retain the older uniforms with nike logos.) The new uniforms have exceptional improvements such as water resistance, better temp adjustments, lighter, and tighter fit. Several other teams will now have a slight advantage when facing the Packers. If Nike came out with a new helmet that prevents concussions, would the Packers not make everyone wear them? The old thinking of traditional uniforms are best is close minded and ignorant.

    All of you saying you like the “old” uniforms are idiots. It says right in this article they are made using the exact same process and materials as the jerseys from last year. They don’t look any different because they aren’t any different.

    You truly believe that a uniform will give other teams an edge over the packers? The packers will be a better team next year than they were this year and were one game from perfection… The new uniforms look over all the same which fits the team well. This is the uniform of a traditional, classy franchise and it makes sense to leave it as is.

    Seems strange the Pack would not even buy into the new, apparently updated Nike uniform materials and construction. They will be wearing the same unis as last year – literally the only change is the Nike emblem. Either the Pack does not believe the new materials are an improvement (and I would like to know why they think that)or they are just not willing to evolve. There’s is nothing wrong with change as long as it makes you better and is in keeping with who you are. I think this team’s unis could be improved upon. I think sometimes change can keep you fresh.

    To you grouches saying the Packers uni’s are made from the same material. How do you come up with that? They may look the same in appearance but that doesn’t mean they’re identical in material and everything. Also to those who say the other teams with different material “waterproof” and such actually gave the other teams an advantage you’re a d*** idiot if you really believe that’ll make a difference. The cloth used doesn’t improve performance. The Pack would be a top performing team if they were wearing haz-mat uniforms. Point is give the team some credit and quit being pathetic and negative.

  47. By Aaron on Apr 4, 2012 | Reply

    To the fans that dont believe a uniform could provide a slight advantage-Certain swimsuits are banned at the olympics for the same reason. Now apply it to the NFL, playing a wet game, absorbing extra ounces of water, not to mention wick-a-way materials which allow athletes to expell several ounces, even pounds of sweat. So if you dont believe several ounces or pounds of sweat dont matter, then you are a fool.

    For those complaining that the new authentic uniforms will cost more at the ProShop simply because they’re manufactured by Nike, there are plenty of websites where you can purchase authentic (or at least authentically made) uniforms for MAD cheap. we’re talking as low as $30-$40 (plus shipping).
    As far as the changes that weren’t made, I believe it’s a wise decision, as has been stated numerous times. The Pack is the epitome of tradition and steadfastness. I believe there is no more an instantly identifiable NFL uniform than that of the Green Bay Packers. The color combo and the ‘G’ is among the most easily recognizable of any sports franchise in the world. Changing it (i.e., adding BLACK (?! seriously) would be not only foolish but a terrible business decision. You stick with what works.

    Damama are you serious? How did we come up with the fact that the Pack is not changing even to the new materials? Read the article at the top and at nikeinc.com. It says, “Nike is changing the material of the uniforms for some clubs, but the Packers have elected to maintain their existing uniform fabrication for the coming season.” Also, from si.com, “The Packers allowed no changes to their classic look as well as changing the new technology Nike introduced which includes a different fabric that is lighter when wet.” I love the Pack’s classic look but am curious as to why not changing to new, supposedly better, materials. My guess is the Pack’s brain trust must have determined the new materials are not as good as advertised.

    “Pathetic and negative” – come on man. I assume we all want the same thing – more rings.

    “Kam Chancellor, Seattle’s Pro Bowl safety, says he loves the new designs, but enjoys the cut and fit even better. “The shrink-wrap fit, we can move our body around,” he said. “We can move and be free.”

    The major performance aspects the players honed in on were the stretch fit, the breathability of the top and the strong Flywire collar.”

    Read more: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2012/football/nfl/04/03/nike.nfl/index.html#ixzz1r6FeBW3O

    None of these performance aspects will be available to the Packers in 2012 because they have opted not to adopt them.

    In response to the questions concerning where Nike products are made, a quick search of the Internet reveals “In a single line one can say wherever it is cheapest. Nike has contracted manufacturing deals in countries such as China, Indonesia, Vietnam and Mexico.” (blurtit.com)

    If the new uniforms are manufactured in the USA, Nike’s not advertising this fact in any article that I saw.

  56. By John K. on Apr 4, 2012 | Reply

    In 60 years the Pack has certainly embraced change. When dudes started wearing helmets the Packers did as well. When the footwear improved, the Pack climbed on board. When shoulder pads and helmets improved the Pack was right there. Equipment improves with better, lighter, stronger materials. The Packers, just like every other professional football team, should strive to stay on the cutting edge of its equipment. The moment you fall behind, you are behind and no one waits for you to catch up. My point is – why did the Pack balk at the supposedly improved equipment? There’s a ton of hyperbole out there and while it’s entertaining I am just wondering why the decision was made. I can guarantee it’s not because of “60 years. . . 1 uniform (which is incorrect anyway) . . . 7 world championships.”

    Glad the Pack didn’t make any design changes in regards to their overall appearance and color scheme, but have to question the decision not to “upgrade” to the newest material and uniform design construction. Seems Nike put a lot of thought into form and function and Packers are potentially putting themselves at a disadvantage. I would also think the players would want the updated uniforms. Dumb decision by a sometimes too conservative franchise.

    All of you who think Green Bay has adopted the new FABRIC produced by Nike please read!

    The Packers changed nothing about their classic, green and gold look. They also will not use the fabric that is reportedly lighter, particularly when wet. When Nike described the Pack’s uniforms, they put it quite simply:

    “The Green Bay Packers have chosen to stay with their traditional design aesthetic as well as their former uniform fabrication for the coming season.”

    The uniform style is GREAT but why wouldn’t the Packers choose to use the new fabric designed by NIKE as the other NFL teams are doing?

    Tradition is great but you need to keep up with innovation or you fall behind. Sometimes you can keep tradition but use technology….Especially if the new fabric is as good as they are saying! It would be like not using under armor in the cold – guess we did that too when we didn’t use advanced technology to keep warm in the 2007 Championship game. I LOVE THE PACK but we need to be innovators!

    Really people? I doubt the people in charge of this decision didn’t just ignore the possible improvements. They probably had some factor we’re unaware of and to think that a uniform is going to cause us to lose is just plain foolishness. Olympic swimmers cut through water, football players cut through other players. Pretty sure it’s going to take more than a few ounces to a difference here.

    For all your “purists” out there.

    Reebok – “Similar to Nike, they also utilize a 100% outsourcing strategy and manufacture their products throughout Asia….They are facing scrutiny in regards to wage, overtime, and air quality issues, and like Nike, are working to address these issues.”

    Adidas – “They have adjusted their manufacturing strategy, from a vertical operation in Germany in the 60’s and 70’s, to an outsourcing focus today throughout Asia. Unlike the big two, they do not have a code of conduct, and their factories are considered to be the worst in the industry. It is just a matter of time before they are exposed, with an underground swelling of negativity already occurring today.”
