University of Michigan and adidas Unveil New TECHFIT Uniform

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – The University of Michigan football program and official provider, adidas, unveiled Friday (Aug. 8) the new “Go Blue” TECHFIT football uniform the Wolverines will wear for the night game against Penn State on Saturday, Oct. 11, at Michigan Stadium. Student-athletes and members of the football program provided input to adidas on the uniform design.
 
The first head to toe blue look in school history, this new look draws inspiration from the university’s past uniforms. The jersey and pants feature metallic blue, laser-cut stripes that shine under the lights while ultra-light, no-sew metallic numbers stretch with the jersey, and the compression base layer features the Michigan “M” on the bicep and "GO BLUE" across the chest.
 
Michigan's new uniform also incorporates TECHFIT Shockweb technology. The adidas TECHFIT Shockweb uniform is the only true compression uniform system in the industry. Shockweb fits tighter to the body, making players more difficult to tackle. TECHFIT Shockweb is lighter, helping to make the player fast and increasing his range of motion, to support the athlete's performance at the highest levels.
 
Michigan will wear its traditional home and road uniforms for the remainder of the regular season. Any decision regarding bowl game apparel would be discussed at a later date between football and adidas.
 
This is the fifth time that Michigan and adidas have collaborated on an alternate uniform: 2011 Under the Lights game with Notre Dame, 2011 game at Michigan State, 2012 Kickoff Classic vs. Alabama and 2013 Outback Bowl vs. South Carolina.

Wish we would stop with all the alternate jerseys...why mess with tradition & perfection? 
 
Having said that, they are getting less ugly...and I do have the 2012 jersey from the Alabama game, since I was there. The 2011 & MSU ones were the UGLIEST, by far, IMO

Because the players like them. It's pretty simple.

I'd actually like them if it weren't for the hideous striping.

Riiiiiiiiiiiiiight....b/c our jerseys are the reason we are going to stay with the times or get left behind, not our 15-11 record the past 2 seasons,

Just win baby!

Go Blue!!

Total marketing bullsh**.  The jersey's cannot possibly get any tighter these days.  Besides, they'd have to presume Michigan even knows HOW to tackle someone before trying to make jerseys that make it more difficult to tackle people.  Baby steps....

Guess you don't have a tween daughter then.  As long as there are young girls willing to pay for crappy, overproduced dreck there will always be boybands.  My ears are bleeding as I type this -

I'm with jthorpe. Adidas is garbage. Look at our 3 NBA picks this year. Not ONE of them went with adidas when it was their choice. Maybe Brandon needs to pay attention to what the players actually want.

I've only purchased a few Michigan items since we made the switch. I can't stand how they try to incorporate the 3 stripe look into every piece of clothing. The old adidas logo is cool, I have no clue why they changed.

If I had a dollar for everytime someone said they hate Adidas on this site since 2008 I could pay off my student loans.
