Opening day of the 2012/2013 NFL season was marked by the launch of a new generation of Nike uniforms. Debuted via the New York Giants and the Dallas Cowboys, technical innovation is once again pushed to the limits. Nike’s continual goal of bettering performance on the field has been an unwavering aspect of the brand. Dubbed the NFL Nike Elite 51 Uniform, it combines lightweight performance with an integrated chassis and baselayer system. Overall, the new kits seen on the field are lighter than ever before (thanks in part to Flywire), a strong consideration has been placed into fit and cutting for mobility, and of course the appropriate amount of padding required for optimal protection has been incorporated. Other product releasing include the Vapor Jet 2.0 Gloves, Vapor Talon Elite and Vapor Game Sock. While each team enjoys the same performance foundation, little design differences can be seen to highlight the respective team jerseys as well as pay homage to their own unique sensibilities. The jersey’s name is derived from Nike co-founder Bill Bowerman’s own number 51 and the importance in wearing a properly performing uniform — thanks in part to Bowerman’s time spent in the 10th Mountain Division during World War II.
