2018 Winter Olympics Hockey Uniforms

Recommended Posts

I betcha the Swedes won't allow Nike to "Oregon-Duck-up" their national uniform.

The first time I saw a picture of the Canada jersey was on instagram and I though it was a sweat shirt.

 

Whoever it is that is designing these international jerseys for both Nike and Adidas (World Cup) really need to stop using the EA NHL editor to come up with the designs.  I fear when Adidas will attempt to do the same thing.  

 

The Canada logo has a cheap look to it.  It's shinny/reflecting the light.

I generally like Nike. Easily my favorite of the Reebok/Adidas, Nike, and Under Armour group.

 

They have their goofs, toilet bowl collars for one, and now this. Just something about those sleeves are too darn ugly. The idea behind it is great, but the execution isn't there.

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.

Huh? The entire approach here (same design and typography re-colored for multiple teams) is the polar opposite of World Cup (unique designs and typography for each team).

The design looks a lot better on the US than on Canada, IMO.

These are stunningly bad. Canada looks like Canada might look in a video game where national teams are an afterthought. I have a feeling that's kind of what this Olympic hockey tournament will end up being.

I mean that the World Cup jerseys, just like these 2 Olympic ones, were complete crap.  Them having unique designs don't mean anything if they're ugly as :censored:. 

 

The fear part comes from the fact that Nike were the first to come up with the tighter fit jerseys.  They were the first to add a curved hem for absolutely no reason whatsoever.  Reebok followed them in doing so.  Would it surprise me then if Adidas came out with a crazy concept for their next international jersey they design now that Nike has done it?  Nope.

Okay, that's your opinion, but I really can't agree with it. I think the designs incorporated unique national elements and identities a lot better than just about anything Nike's done since 2006. There seemed to be a lot less emphasis on manufacturer branding elements than what Nike does, too, and yes, I say that even with adidas trotting out the new 7387 jersey cut and running three stripes up the sides of every shirt. The only clunker of the lot for me was Team Europe. North America, Canada, Sweden, Russia, and the white USA jersey were all outstanding.

This pattern would be good for soccer goalie templates but they're horrible for hockey.

The only saving grace for these things is that they look exactly like I'd assume Olympic hockey jerseys would look in 2018, as I'm a 12 year old watching the 1996 World Cup of Hockey.

lucky for us, there are no NHL players in the Olympics and all of the games will be on at  6 AM EST anyway, so we wont have to see these much.

These weren’t terrible. Especially the white one.

 

Damn, never thought I’d miss those Adidas stripes.

i really like breaking away from traditional jersey striping and implementing a design that fills the entire sleeve. im not sure what it is, it feels more like breaking ice than feathers, but its a cool pattern. i love the number font and the laser-cut holes fading away— gives the numbers some visual weight. limited use of red is always nice too.

 

i dont like that both teams are in the same template. thats when it becomes more about Nike than the individual squads. but my biggest question is why are there 2 logos on the front of the jerseys? especiall with USA, theres no reason to have the shield and the letters. i would have loved to seen the shield on the shoulders, mostly because its ugly and the USA type is so well done. it also throws off the balannce on the front; the shield and swoosh are not aligned with each other and on the royal blue jersey, the staggered letters create more balance issues. it feels like 3 different people designed the jersey without anyone of them knowing what the others were doing.

Drop the sleeves and add a shoulder yoke or contrasting collar. It's not too bad.
