If you think that it's just about Nike, then you aren't actually reading Uni Watch.

It seems like it's mostly about Nike. I know he doesn't say much about Adidas because he hardly ever talks about soccer and Adidas' version of logo creep is most apparent there.

If it seems as though he talks mostly about Nike, that's because Nike is the big gorilla in the US. But he spends plenty of time discussing Reebok and the NHL and corporate ads wherever they crop up. He also compliments Nike on their good designs.

"Lukas hates Nike" is the popular meme, but doesn't have any basis in reality.

That's amazing.

Could have a better number font, but otherwise that's pretty.

I like that a lot. Nice job Ireland.

I'd be getting that Ireland away for sure if they didn't have the ads on the replicas. That's a great looking shirt though.

Likewise. Hell, I'd be getting it even with the ads, but Ireland's kit sponsor's logo is so goddamn dumb and bad looking on a football shirt.

Yeah, not that I won't buy a shirt with ads on it (I've got a few) but I can't stand how Ireland's shirt looks with that sponsor.

I agree that lukas is more anti corporate influence in sports and nike is by far the most successful at that game...come to think of it they pretty much wrote the book on it in terms of embedding manufacturers' marks into sporting life.

Hey, keep your Milwaukee Bucks soccer crossover in the Concepts section.

Wait, what? Oh goodness gracious that is nice. I hope this means no sponsor on the retail replicas.

Nice job. I want one too.

Sadly, this appears to be the replica:

Setting that aside (I hold The Irish FA responsible for that), the shirt is a thing of beauty. Umbro scores again!

Man, the more I see that vertical stripe the more I love this shirt.

Reminds me of my favorite US shirt:

England had something similar with a single red stripe from the cross of St George.

The creast-and-vertical-stripe look is so simple, yet so powerful. I love it.

God I hate the sponsor on that Ireland shirt SO much. Completely ruins the entire thing.

Join the club. Any other logo would be better than that.

Or how about no logo at all, which is the standard for international tops, even replicas.

Of course that would be the best solution, but if they must put a logo, any other one would've been better.

I have no idea what company "3" even is.

Is that even a sponsor logo? That might just be a :censored:ty number font that someone decided to slap on the replica for some reason. I don't see why a replica of a national team kit would have a sponsor logo.

Maybe to make more money for the association?

It's a sponsor logo. Eircom was their old sponsor; it looked MUCH better.
