The Miami Hurricanes football program and Adidas have gotten together for another alternate uniform, and this time they’ve come up with the exact opposite of their white-on-silver uniforms: An all-black uniform. Also, since it’s November, that means that this special uniform is all about Military Appreciation.
They’ll be wearing the uniforms for their November 7th clash against the Virginia Cavaliers, and here’s more information on the uniform from the Canes’ website:
Accenting the camouflage theme, the helmet, jersey and pants are a bold black and feature metallic silver oversized “U” logos on the shoulder pads, pants and helmet. The jerseys are highlighted with player numbers in the Hurricanes’ signature orange colorway and outlined with metallic silver. Additionally, the pants feature metallic silver striping on the right leg that incorporates hurricane style cuts and patterns, while left leg features “Miami’ in oversized metallic silver text. To cap off the look, the “Canes” moniker is strategically placed across the chest in metallic silver with orange outlines.
Personally, I would’ve preferred to see a bit more green-and-orange on this uniform, and I’m not exactly a fan of the entire design in general. However, judging by some of the reaction that these uniforms have received on social media from the troops themselves, it seems like a hit when it comes to them. Obviously, that’s all that matters here, and as long as the proceeds from these uniforms go to a good cause and the troops themselves like it, then who are we to complain?
With that being said, what do you think? Is this your favorite Miami Hurricanes uniform so far, or is this a miss for you?
