New Vikings Uniforms

Recommended Posts

I thought the purple monochrome looked ok. Some yellow socks could have made it look a whole lot better, but I can live with it.

I liked the mono purple a lot. I think the matte uniforms made it a lot more tolerable than the last set, the old helmet would've looked better with these uniforms though.

White pants. Always. End of discussion.

I can agree with no monochrome (even though I like it) but always purple pants on the road.

I actually loved the all purple look with the previous jerseys. This look was just terrible. I personally find this entire redesign to be awful. Its been almost half of a year and I simply can't wrap my head around the new look. I want to like them but I simply can't. Its a terrible look that just totally misses the mark for me. Hopefully they will come to their senses and get rid of the ridiculous number font, awkward sleeve striping, and mismatching helmet. Maybe they will return to the classic look of the 80's and 90's...One can only hope.

The fact that the striping on the jersey matches perfectly with the striping on the pants makes the purple monochrome a winner in my eyes. I love it when striping matches like that.

I do yearn for the days of the mismatched purples (helmet that didn't come close to matching the jerseys), generic font one color number, generic pant stripes (which about 698 other football teams used), sleeve stripes crammed onto a jersey without sleeves and white shoes.

Again, there are good reasons why uniforms like those of yesteryear aren't used anymore. Its just up to the teams to evolve and come up with great progressive designs. Some do, some don't and some sorta do.

So are you saying that a classic uniform can't be customized to fit a modern uniform??? I don't buy what you are selling here. The Colts have made it work, the Bears made it work, as have many other teams...so why can't the Vikings? Sorry...but I simply don't agree with your assessment.

The purple pants are fine with the white jerseys. The all-purple? No, no, no, no...(continue to infinity)

Well, 0-8-1. I didn't realize they never went all-white this year.

I just hope they get better socks for the purple pants. I am 100% all for purple pants on the road- but please, resist the urge to go full Grimace.

You never go full Grimace.

This thread is pretty much dead by now but hopefully the new coach Zimmer like the purple pants. I would hate to go back to being a boring white on white every week team.
