Nike “Elite” and “Game” team jerseys in-store and online in late April; Nike “Limited” jersey to come this summer.
Having unveiled the new Nike Elite 51 Uniform collection for NFL players last week, Nike is now set to introduce three levels of replica jerseys for the fans, available to pre-order starting April 15th.
The three jersey tiers all include a stylish, sleek updated design, a refined fit and upgraded fabrication:
· The Nike Game Jersey ($100), available in late April, features a more refined, tailored fit for everyday wear. Hand-crafted from the inside-out, premium details include silicon print numbers for a light soft feel, as well as a no-tag neckline for comfort. The Game jersey will be offered in women’s cut and sizing.
· The Nike Limited Jersey ($135), available this summer, features a more streamlined design including a refined, tailored fit for range of motion. Built from the inside out, the Limited jersey is one step closer to mimicking the team's on-field jersey through the application of embroidery as well as tackle-twill numbering and lettering. For those teams whose on-field jerseys implement the new Elite 51 innovation, many will feature Flywire technology in the neckline as well as strategic mesh ventilation that has been placed over major heat zones. The Limited jersey will be offered in women’s cut and sizing.
· The Nike Elite Jersey ($250), available in late April, features the same level of innovation that the athletes wear on the field. For many of the teams that selected that Elite 51 technology in their on-field jerseys, the fan’s Elite version includes zoned stretch fabric tailored for precise fit and movement, water-repelling fabric, Flywire technology around the neck line for a lightweight lockdown fit, and strategic ventilation over major heat zones. This jersey also incorporates highly flexible premium twill numbers for a comfortable every day wearable feel.
Both the Nike Elite and Nike Game jerseys will become available via presale beginning Sunday, April 15th at Niketown locations, Nikestore.com, NFL Team Shops and NFLShop.com.
On April 26th, jerseys will be available at all NFL Team Shops as well as the NFL Shop adjacent to Bryant Park, online via official NFL team websites and NFLShop.com. On April 27th, jerseys will become available at midnight in Niketown New York. Other retail locations on that date will include Nike partner retailers, Nike Factory Stores and nikestore.com.
Given their new re-design, the Seattle Seahawks will not hold a pre-sale opportunity, and their jerseys will go on sale at the team’s pro shop and Seahawks.com on April 26th for three days preceding broad retail on April 30th.
In addition to the jerseys, items from the Nike sideline and practicewear collections will become available this summer. Among the items are styles for all 32 teams including the Nike N98 Jacket, Destroyer Jacket, Legend Tee, FlyShort, Nike Pro Combat Hypercool training top and KO Hoody.
