New Orleans Saints 2012 Nike Football Uniform

NFL players take the field wearing next-generation innovation for athletes at the highest level.


The New Orleans Saints have chosen to take full innovation in the Nike Elite 51 Uniform including Flywire technology to reduce weight and provide a lockdown fit over the pads. Keeping with their traditional design aesthetic, the uniform is completely engineered from the inside out. The new uniform focuses on creating a system where the baselayer, padding, jersey and pant work in concert with each other. A few of the new innovations include increasing sleeve articulation for better range of motion and integrating new four-way stretch fabrication to provide a streamlined shrink-wrap fit.

In addition to serving as the Saints on-field supplier for uniforms, sideline apparel, practice wear and baselayer, Nike will also provide men's and women's fan wear apparel. Athletes will also be able to wear the Nike Vapor Jet 2.0 Glove featuring the interlocking team logo on the palms.
