PHOTOS: Team Slovakia unveils 2014 Olympic jerseys
Of all the Olympic jersey designs so far, Team Slovakia may have the best yet with its traditional national crest and some unique, but not over-the-top twists.
The gradual rolling out of jerseys for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, continued Tuesday with the release of Team Slovakia’s uniforms. Of all the jerseys Nike has put out so far, Slovakia’s may be the very best (which probably isn’t saying all that much).
Yes, the fake laces are still there, but it seems Slovakia escaped the gaudy matte designs on the shoulders some of the other countries got saddled with. The national symbol, which has always been the team’s main crest on the jerseys is relatively unchanged from tradition either. It looks really sharp on these jerseys.
You may notice the subtle striping around each jersey around the torso and sleeves. From afar, they look like a new way of adding horizontal striping to jerseys. However, it takes on an even more unique tone when you look closer.
The stripes aren’t stripes at all, they’re the words to Slovakia's national anthem. That's kind of cool, actually.
These jerseys do look a little similar to those of Team USA with the way the shoulders and crest are designed, but thankfully there are no silly stars on these. Advantage, Slovakia.
Nike has taken a lot of risks with their uniforms, but of all the designs yet, Slovakia looks like a real winner.
