Engineered from the inside out for optimal ventilation, the Nike NFL Elite 51 Pro Bowl Uniform features a combination of lightweight, breathable fabrics. The 2015 Pro Bowl concept features bold anthracite color-blocking amplified by vibrant orange and Volt color accents. Stars on the jersey nameplates recognize the number of respective past Pro Bowl selections for each chosen player.
The uniform design and the game itself share a common theme that highlights the faster, “unconferenced” format introduced for the 2014 Pro Bowl. The Pro Bowl is “fantasy football for real,” allowing players, coaches and fans to vote for the two teams. Once selected, the two teams — captained by Hall of Fame wide receivers Cris Carter and Michael Irvin — will compete in a “best in the NFL” match-up. Team Irvin’s uniforms are punctuated by vibrant orange accents, while Team Carter showcases Volt accents.
Individual Nike-sponsored athletes will wear the Nike Vapor Untouchable cleat. The first Nike Flyknit football cleat made with recycled polyester yarn, the Nike Vapor Untouchable leverages the power of sustainable innovation and pushes the limits of speed and strength on the field. Each pair of Nike Vapor Untouchable cleats is knit with the equivalent of five recycled plastic bottles.
Nike athletes will also wear Nike Vapor Knit Glove in colors that correspond to their Pro Bowl team’s orange or yellow accent. The Vapor Jet Knit Glove is built with one-piece knit construction and Magnigrip surface palm, allowing full freedom of movement while enhancing grip.
The game will take place on Sunday, Jan. 25 at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz
THE NFL NIKE ELITE 51 UNIFORM
Designed and engineered from the inside out, the NFL Nike Elite 51 uniform is a fully integrated system in which the baselayer, jersey and pant work in concert. Lightweight padding is also integrated directly into the crucial “hit zones” in the baselayer. Key innovations include integrated Flywire technology in the neckline to reduce weight and provide lockdown fit over pads, increased sleeve articulation for better range of motion, and all-over four-way stretch fabrication to provide a streamlined shrink-wrap fit.
As the official uniform supplier of the NFL, Nike provides all on-field, baselayer, sideline and practice wear for the league’s 32 teams.
