Nike NFL Uniforms: 49ers QB Alex Smith Is Ready To Hurt You

On April 1, Nike officially began their new five-year license with the NFL. Today was the real debut though, as they released the new jerseys, pants and cleats for the public to view. They go on sale later this month and it sounds like the actual, authentic game jerseys will be $250, with the cheapest option sitting at $100.

Nike is releasing a variety of publicity shots via Faccebook and I thought this was far and away the most bad-ass. The slogan itself leaves something to be desired, but otherwise, this is the most intense look we may ever see from Alex Smith. It looks like Smith is prepared to claim your soul. Or probably comparable to during the fourth quarter of the Saints game!

The 49ers uniforms do not feature any drastic changes. They do look a little bit different due to the new materials involved and some of the minor design changes. However, for the most part they are the same general design. We could always be looking at a new design similar to the Seahawks. Players apparently like the design, but a lot of fans are displeased.

In making changes to the design, Nike has reportedly developed some new technology related to the uniforms. These are some of the changes in the uniforms:

  • LIGHTER - The Nike jersey and pant, wet or dry are lighter than previous versions
  • FLYWIRE TECHNOLOGY- Eliminates layers, reduces weight, and provides lockdown fit
  • ZONED MESH VENTILATION - Provides cooling zones for optimal thermoregulation
  • ZONED STRENGTH - High tenacity, stretch material, for light weight lockdown strength.
  • CUT FOR MOBILITY - Four-way stretch, hydrophobic materials enable range of motion wet or dry.
  • STRETCH TWILL NUMBERS - Four-way stretch even on numbering system
  • CUSTOMIZABLE BASELAYER PADDING - Nike Pro Combat Hyperstrong baselayer with integrated lightweight, Deflex padding offering customizable flexible protection.
  • DEFLEX PADDING - Lightweight, flexible impact protection integrated into top "hit zone" areas
  • ALUMINUM D-RING BELT - Aircraft-grade aluminum D-ring belt reduces weight
