    Not completely sure how legitimate this is...but apparently they put this on Facebook.

    Interesting...but weird if the gloves only form logos like that when crossed. Maybe completely fake? I know some love trying to predict uniform changes, so have fun :up:

    They did the same with the college logos being on the palms of gloves.

    I believe they just changed the shading of the Dolphin to a lighter aqua. If you click on the picture of the Dolphins gloves it shows two boxes that say "old aqua" and "new aqua."

    Yeah, looks like Nike leaked the Panthers logo. Not a very noticeable change but a good one none the less

    It reminds me of how they tweaked the Lions logo.

    In fact, the logos were altered on all 4 of the teams shown. It's possible that these changes are indeed going to happen, but Nike itself does not have the authority to alter the team logo. That is a decision made by the team itself and (I believe) has to receive NFL approval.

    Doesn't matter if they are "major" alterations or not. Nike does not have the authority to make ANY alterations to any team logo without the consent of the team.

    Nike has whatever authority the league/franchise grants them. They take liberties in almost every uniform they provide. You have extreme examples such as Oregon, then you have very subtle examples like Alabama, just minor tweaks, like uniform fit. The gloves aren't out of the realm of possibilities especially if they are a mock up, gotta give options to see what the team prefers. I know I prefer the lighter green because it creates a contrast that really makes the logo stand out

    Are they trying to brainwash us or do they actually think that a heads up display is a good look?

    There is no alteration. Someone looked at the picture and thought that maybe the aqua was lighter, but there is no change, it's just the way it looks on the gloves. There is absolutely nothing different about it. There is a pair of gloves for every team floating around.

    Not to be a dick but the "change" is a legit one. They are using a different color for the aqua. It isn't anywhere as dark as it is now and is more in line with the current jersey color.

    This really isn't a big deal as it is just a mock up at this time. Mock ups float around almost everywhere when graphic artists are involved. They have several ideas and send them out tithe customer who says yes or no and submits changes with the no. it makes zero sense for Nike to poach the NFL and not suggest some tweaks. Just remember, these tweaks aren't set in stone, they are more than likely works in progress.

    I don't agree. Look at the link again in the OP. It says "new aqua?" and "old aqua?" The question marks means someone is guessing. The photoshopped logo on the gloves is just lighter than the logo in the corner. Even the orange is lighter. I don't think it means anything other than lighting and photoshop.

    No way that's lighting.

    Unless I am severely color blind, there is no way those are the same colors. Photoshop wouldn't account for being shades off, using a new color will. Old aqua is more blue than green. Also looks like they switched to 021 orange.

    It isn't photoshop. These are official and will be used in the Pro Bowl.

    I don't know dude, I have a bunch of Dolphins stuff around my room that look exactly like the colors on the gloves. Some stuff is darker and some is lighter. Usually depends on the material it's printed on.

    Changes will be coming out for some teams. I don't think the Panthers planned on having their new logo released this way, but it is. A slight color change could be in order for Miami. The Falcons having a gold stripe around the logo is interesting as well. Other than that, the majority of teams look the same.

    I'm not saying Laces Out is wrong, I'm just saying it looks like a guess to me. I have tons of stuff with the logo on it. Sometimes the colors are lighter, sometimes they're darker, but it's still beautiful.

    The contract is not the same as the one they have with the NCAA.



    Nike has no authority to change team logos. This was said last season. They may alter colors schemes of the pants and jerseys but they cannot change the logos without, first, the teams approval, then it must pass league approval.

    It even says it at the bottom of the article you provided.

    Take a better look. You see all the shadowing that comes off the fingers and the grey lines that go way past the glove. They make it appear darker in that area where the grey line crosses over the glove.

    1. The lighter color looks better. (Because it looks like the old jersey color) 2. I think they can alter the shades slightly for apparel.

    Actually they technically release apparel in different colors. There are those pink ones, and there have been stuff like grey logos and white and even saw a red dolphins jersey from reebok. Think it was called a practice jersey.

    These look like Photoshop mock ups, yeah they are what they are being worn tomorrow but it looks like a mock up of how they are going to look like. It could easily be lighting effects.

    That says maybe but anyhow......

    Also, the stuff looks different because it is. Check out 021 Pantone orange. And if I had to shoot from the hip without a color book I am guessing the green is 3125.

    Right it says maybe but then states that some teams might be looking for some changes. I don't have the article but it was here last year when this came up. Anything can be done with approval of the team and league. I'm sure some will go for it right off the bat. Some wont but the uniforms will look different no matter what due to the change of gear. Even the helmets are supposed to be totally different and offer more protection.


    The orange looks like the original orange to me. The original logos orange was just not filled in like this one. imo.


    I'm ok with color alterations here and there. Another alternate colored jersey or two. Gives me more to wear but the logo is something I won't be happy with if a big change is made.

    Those gloves are for players in the pro bowl. Nike posted about it on their facebook page. Theirs a whole album of every team. Every player in the pro bowl is wearing them.
