Has Adidas ever put out literature explaining the purpose of the pattern in the fabric?

I genuinely want to see what they would say. Imagine the buzzwords

I believe they claim it to be a difference in materials. The "shockweb" elements of the jersey (darker parts) are supposedly made of either a stronger material or a more flexible material than the rest of the jersey (I cant remember which way it is.) Anyways apparently they material is dyed or otherwise colorized with the same color but one of the fabric types is naturally darker/absorbs it differently.

 

This could easily be circumvented by noting the disparity between the two textiles for each color and lightening/darkening the shades as necessary between fabric types before stitching the uniforms together. (For example, there is less of a difference in red than there is in, say, blue ) But then we wouldn't all notice the pattern and remember that whatever team we're watching is an Adidas team literally every time we see them. It's Lavar Ball marketing.

Nebraska gets off easy because of the red not showing Adidas' stupidity as much as other colors.  UCLA's tire treads were especially bad.

I'm surprised we haven't seen the CFL style jerseys start coming in this years. For a team like Miami, the cut Edmonton uses would fit their stripe pattern almost perfectly.

Orange should always be the primary color for Miami. Green is a great option to mix it up for them. Much like Michigan and the white or maize pants. Use them both and mix it up every now and then.

New WKU Uniforms. Generic Nike Templated garbage as usual.

And these were actually pretty good looks from their past that Nike/WKU could've used.

The bland uniforms really clash with the chrome helmet.

 

Not a fan.

Is it me, or is this a Frankenstein jersey of different Nike templates? It has the collar of the Vapor Untouchable, but the other seams don't match, and there are mesh portions that don't exist on the VU template.

I think some of the issues is it's heavily photoshopped. It does look strangely patched up though.

As Jerry and I discussed on Twitter, this template WKU is using is a hybrid of the Vapor Untouchable and Mach Speed. It's called the Vapor Pro, per the Nike catalogs. It has the same collar as the VU, but the bottom portion has mesh seams similar to the MS.

 

It'll be used a lot for mostly lower levels and high schools.

WKU never needed to move away from these in the first place. Overall meh, really lateral movement with generic jerseys and pants. Wish they didn't have those chrome helmets though.

That is the absolute worst place to stick a team motto.
