The new Seahawks uniforms were finally released today in New York City around 8:40 am pst.
Kam Chancellor, the Seahawks safety, approached the stage in the new duds saying that they are 50% stronger and 20 % lighter allowing for more movement.
The pant legs appear to be a navy blue with 12 neon green feathers down the side of each leg in honor of the 12th man. The numbers appear to be accented by the ‘hawks signature green and old school wolf gray.
The shoulders have the Nike swoop logo on them as well as the Seahawks written logo adorned in grey and green. “Feathers” run down the sides of the collar.
The helmet is a dark blue with light colored “feathers” running up the middle of the helmet to match with the navy blue jerseys and pants. The logo on the helmet has been slightly changed, adding grey to the bottom half of the Seahawk logo and connecting in the back.
The gloves were released during the Pro Bowl this year as a sneak of what was to come. The ‘hawks green adorns the entire glove with black accents around them. The logo is created when the players put their hands together.
Among the all blue uniform, there is also a white and a light gray alternate. The white Uni’s have the numbers written in the blue color, outlined by the green, and all the green “feathers” in the same deep blue. The Nike swoop logo is in the green color on the shoulders. The light grey jerseys match this same style.
Nike has made the jerseys not only better for the player, but kept fans in mind as well, creating three different styles of jersey to sell to the public.
The Seahawks are really the only team to have the major overhaul done to their uniforms. The last time the uniforms had this major of a change was in 2002 in honor of Qwest Field (now CentryLink) was open.
