2018 Winter Olympics Hockey Uniforms

Recommended Posts

Wow. Quite ugly. Team USA was inspired by Bald Eagle feathers.

 

USA Hockey Unveils Nike 2018 Olympic/Paralympic Jersey

 

Other jersey highlights include:
• The inspirational slogan of Land of the Free – Home of the Brave hidden in the back neck of the jersey
• Injected silicone molds make the trim pop
Graphic on the sleeve was inspired by bald eagle feathers and represents the theme of fluid force
• The flicker film (rather than heavy twill) base for the crest and numbers increase vibrancy and sparkles under arena lights.

So was Canada's also inspired by the iconic jaws of Husky Stadium bald eagle feathers? Because it's the same template.

Who was the sleeper cell Adidas designer that snuck over to Nike?  Or is Hockey so far down their radar they're letting Phil's "Woke" Nephew design these from his luxurious dormroom.

 

Holy crap, i'm old now.


Still, these are Burning ButtTrash.

Since the NHL won't be there to show them off they probably half assed these out the door.

I honestly don't understand. Aren't they trying to make money? Do they actually think this ridiculous design would sell better than a clean classic design? Especially with no NHL players, you would think they would try to make as nice a jersey as possible to try to get some sales.

No, I think Canada's inspiration was North Attantic lobster tail. :)

I get that these are all the same templates, but somehow, Canada's white sweater beats out the rest by a long shot. Also why do these look like the sled hockey team designs? There's no waist striping, and barely any sock patterns...

 

These Nike designers only know how to design shoes... Why are they designing Olympic Hockey jerseys?

I'm not sure why Canada is so sure that black needs to be a colour on the jerseys. Red and white are the national colours, and they should be the only ones on the jersey. This was the perfect look for me:

I don't understand how anyone can think it's a good idea to put both sides of arguably the biggest international hockey rivalry in the same jersey.

Looking at the unveiling of the Olympic jerseys for Team Canada & Team USA. It’s a shame that many of NHL players won’t be wearing them

This is fantastic! Do we still do post of the day around here, if so, we have a winner!

 

 As for the jerseys, the US especially, seem to draw from a lot of the colors and styles seen in the Nike Soccer USA catalog recently with the multiple blues and gradient type of look.

i seriously had to check to make sure i wasn't looking at the Concepts page.  What the hell is that?  those are embarrassing.  I know the national pride comes through just being there, but the jersey has a part in that.  These look like random roller hockey league jerseys.  i feel like '02 was the last time most teams looked great.

Foil treatments,speed holes, lazy, ugly templating... man, what garbage. I guess the one good aspect of it is that Nike's out of their "Everybody should use Agency" phase. But they've had loads of opportunities to come up with something to create unique, appealing looks since the IOC banned IIHF logos from hockey jerseys for the Olympics, and they have whiffed on dang near every one of them.

Jersey, nah. 

 

Helmets and pants should always be black though.
