College Football Nike’s 2011 Pro Combat Uniforms For Oregon Football

Nike co-founder Phil Knight ran in the University of Oregon Track & Field program under the other Nike co-founder Bill Bowerman. Knight graduated from the University of Oregon in 1959 with a bachelor’s degree in accounting and went on to earn an M.B.A. at Stanford University. Knight returned to Oregon and with Bowerman, also a University of Oregon alumnus, later founded Blue Ribbon Sports in 1964, which officially became Nike in 1978. In 1970, Bill Bowerman revolutionized the athletic shoe by pouring molten rubber into a waffle iron, creating a prototype rubber sole. University of Oregon distance runner Steve Prefontaine became the first major track athlete to wear Nike shoes and converted many of his peers to the Nike brand.

It's that time of year again when Nike makes football fans everywhere scream "Holy Sh*t!" by unveiling its Pro Combat uniforms for Oregon's football team. With a tint of neon yellow and a matte black finish, this year's oh-oh-oh so fresh Ducks uniforms are like the armor that a heroic, Kevlar-clad knight would wear to fight off an invasion of alien zombie hunchbacks robots. Quack attack those predatory extraterritorial son-of-a-bit*ches. Can't wait to see these in the opener against LSU. Check out the swagatronic threads after the jump.


Nike has maintained a close relationship with UO ever since, manufacturing all university logo clothing and uniforms for the football team, including research prototypes for high-tech "smart clothes", such as jerseys with cooling systems. Numerous University of Oregon graduates have also gone on to become executives, designers, and business partners of Nike.

I'll be dead honest but I'd wear this shit in public cause it just looks very fucking cool!
