Over the weekend, the University of Miami and adidas launched the Hurricanes’ new Primeknit football uniforms for the 2015 season.
The launch went down at Club LIV at the Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami Beach and featured surprise performances by DJ Cannon and Pusha T, a host of football alumni, celebrities were in attendance to get the first-look at the new uniforms and to celebrate the new partnership which begins on September 1st.
Developed in collaboration with the University of Miami athletic department, the team’s new look is highlighted by updated metallic stripes on the jerseys and pants, incorporating hurricane style cuts and patterns throughout the new uniform. Additionally, the “Hurricanes” moniker is strategically placed across the ribbing of the inside collar for the players to see when they don the uniform, while the classic oversized “U” logo is stitched into on the back of the jersey for all to view.
Pusha T was gifted a green U of M jersey by adidas before the performance and he liked what he saw.” I thought it was cool,” he said.
Made with a cutting-edge, proprietary yarn blend that increases durability and abrasion resistance, Primeknit is the premier compression uniform system, featuring the latest generation of adidas TECHFIT technology. Primeknit helps keep players cool and increases range of motion, giving athletes an unrivaled level of comfort and allowing them to perform at their highest levels. “It’s funny because I was just talking about Michigan getting new jerseys, so now the Miami Hurricanes have the fliest colors,” said DJ Don Cannon.
“Those and the Miami Dolphins are the flyest colors.”
Making their on-field debut on Saturday, September 5th vs. Bethune-Cookman for the team’s season opener, the Hurricanes will have the option to mix and match three color ways throughout the season. The green, orange and white variations are interchangeable, resulting in nine unique uniform combinations.
