Exclusive: new Boise St. Nike Pro Combat uniforms

Posted by Will Brinson


Nike's Pro Combat uniform series has become not just an annual tradition, but a reminder that football is here, you guys.

CBSSports.com was given an exclusive first look at the uniforms for both the Oregon Ducks and the Boise St. Broncos (view Oregon's uniforms here) and we're happy to share them with you, our dear readers.

As you can see above, Boise will be rocking the interlacing logo gloves that have become a signature to Nike's Pro Combat uniforms. They'll also be sporting some pretty sick new helmets -- all white with a "trace" version of the Bronco wrapping around. Very sleek, in my humble, not-totally-colorblind opinion.



The cleats, however, are a little flashier, as they've got a blue/orange fade near the collar to go with the FlyWire.



The toes are even more -- ahem -- kicking it, as the pattern flips up and moves to a sharp orange interchanged with the blue mini lightning bolts:



And there's some special action on the leg as well (where you can see the breathability that I mentioned on the Oregon unis):



And, of course, a full look at the uni's, from the back side:

Exclusive: New Oregon Nike Pro Combat uniforms

Nike's Pro Combat uniform series has become not just an annual tradition, but a reminder that football is here, you guys.

CBSSports.com was given an exclusive first look at the uniforms for both the Oregon Ducks and the Boise St. Broncos (view Boise's uniforms here) and we're happy to share them with you, our dear readers.

As you can see above, the 2011 Oregon football jerseys sport the similar "winged" look as the 2010 -- the jerseys are built out of Nike Flywire technology (which is the same stuff in the sides of most of your new Nike shoes), and includes ultra-strong Kevlar (bulletproof!) stitching in the collar as well.



But that doesn't mean it's heavy -- per Nike, "cooling zones in the lightweight jersey work in concert with base layer ventilation for optimal thermoregulation." No, I'm not entirely sure what that means, but I'm pretty sure it's something along the lines of "the jersey has breathable sections throughout the torso to make sure that athletes don't become overheated." (This is how my golf shirts work, so I'm guessing, but still.)

As far as the cleats go, well, they're smooth, and they contrast nicely with the full-on black that Oregon's rocking when wearing the Pro Combat unis.



Oregon's colorways are always controversial, because they're combinations of funky greens and yellows. But the "highlight" color on the cleats and gloves are pretty dope, especially paired against the silver of the toe ... and heel.



Nike's worked up some special training shoes for Oregon as well:



Speaking as someone who has a pair of "highlighted" air bubbles (I rock the LunarGlide 3 when I run), they're spicy to wear around and they get you noticed, but it's been rare when someone's ever said something that wasn't complimentary. And I don't look like a football player either. As you can see above, there's significant breathability and surprisingly limited FlyWire across the supporting areas of the shoe.

And, of course, the helmets:



Oh yeah, we also got our hands on an exclusive clip of the uniforms:
