Honolulu, Hawaii, will feel a little retro on Sunday during the 2013 NFL Pro Bowl.
The uniform, designed by Nike, goes to the opposite end of the spectrum from what some might expect from the apparel giant, but falls in line with the tradition-heavy NFL.
The looks of both the AFC and NFC feature simple designs, inspired by 1970s uniforms, according to Nike press materials. Red, white and blue—as is customary—plays centrally.
The NFC will wear a blue jersey with white lettering and red trim, white pants and blue and white accents. The player wears the helmet of their actual team (in the example above it is the Seattle Seahawks). Team logo patch and Pro Bowl patch on either side of the front of the jersey.
The AFC uniform features a white jersey with red lettering and blue trim, red pants and additional red accents. Like the NFC, players wear their team helmets – above is the Indianapolis Colts example. Team logo patch and Pro Bowl patch on either side of the front of the jersey.
The Elite 51 uniform is the same cut as what most NFL teams wore during the regular season.
