The Ohio State Buckeyes will take the field on Nov. 30 in a new all-white uniform. The team’s rich legacy and history of the 1950 “snow bowl” serve as the core inspiration for the monochrome color blocking, augmented by an integrated uniform system specifically engineered for all weather conditions.
Performing at the highest level often means battling both your opponents and the elements. Knowing that athletes perform best with the fewest distractions, Nike Dri-Fit technology helps the team gear up to combat the colder temperatures. The Nike Football uniform system features white jerseys with scarlet numbering on front and shoulders. Athlete names across the back are showcased in black. The white pants include scarlet, black and white piping along the sides. Seven Buckeye leaves ring the back of the collar and a “Block O” anchors the Nike Flywire technology at the neckline. Incorporation of Nike’s Chain Maille Mesh into the jersey allows for exceptional ventilation without sacrificing durability, as well as a seamless integration with the baselayer top.
The new Nike Hyperwarm Eclipse Dri-Fit Max Mock provides athletes with a streamlined, thermo-regulated baselayer that doesn’t sacrifice warmth. The baselayer features lightweight panels to reduce bulk as well as side mesh gussets allowing for a full range of motion and extra breathability. Nike Dri-Fit Max twill – a combination of thick and thin threads – accelerates the pull of moisture from the skin, keeping the body dry and helping to eliminate chill.
Ohio State’s white uniform look is completed by all-white Nike Alpha Pro Cleats and Nike Vapor Jet 2.0 Shield Gloves. Constructed with seamless Nike Hyperfuse on the back of the hand for wind and water-resistance, the Nike Vapor Jet 2.0 Shield Glove is equipped with a fleece lining on back of hand for extra warmth. The palm features Nike Magnigrip material to catch in any condition. With a 3/4 length Phylon wedge at the midsole, the Nike Alpha Pro Cleat promotes forefoot control through low profile cushioning. The bladed cleat base provides 360 degree traction for precise cuts on all surfaces.
