The Detroit Lions unveil their new look during a season ticket member event at Ford Field tonight. They'll showcase four new Nike Vapor Untouchable uniforms that, in addition to new technologies that will help them on the field, feature fresh style updates. (Don’t worry, Honolulu Blue isn’t going anywhere.) Here's what every Lions fan will want to know about them.
The logo and logotype are refreshed
Both appear on the new helmets.
The facemasks are silver. The striping pattern on the top middle is a smaller version of the team’s game pants. The NFL Shield is on the back left and a USA flag is on the back right.
Home and away jerseys pay tribute
Each sleeve features a wide horizontal stripe inside of two smaller stripes. The right side is stenciled with LIONS and the left reads WCF in honor of the team’s previous owner, William Clay Ford, Sr.
The away jerseys are the traditional road whites with blue numerals trimmed in anthracite. Player nameplates are also Honolulu blue but without trim.
Anthracite gets play time
Their new color rush jerseys, pants and socks are inspired by the submetallic luster of dark steel grey. Player numbers are white and trimmed in Honolulu blue.
Color rush sleeves are similar in style to the away uniforms. Players’ nameplates on the back of the uniform are also white without trim like each set of numerals.
Throwbacks are back
The Lions will also wear new heritage uniforms that replicate what they played in for their inaugural season in 1934 — when their iconic Honolulu Blue made its debut.
The throwback jersey is solid Honolulu Blue with silver traditional block numbers and a nameplate across the back; there is no striping on the sleeves or numbers on the shoulders.
Even the socks honor history
Players will wear solid Honolulu Blue socks with their home, road and throwback uniforms. They’ll switch to solid dark steel grey socks to wear with their color rush uniforms.
Equipped with NikeConnect technology, the jersey will unlock access to content from ESPN Films and Netflix’s forthcoming multi-part documentary, “The Last Dance,” and celebrate national nonprofit Friends of the Children.
