Fifty Shades Of Grey: Nike's Color Palette For Syracuse Uniforms

See, this is why I don't work in the apparel business. My flawed way of thinking tells me that when a team is literally named for a color, that color should probably be front and center in everything they wear. I mean, to my silly brain, being called one color and then wearing another color just sounds like the dumbest thing ever.

But, like I said, that's why I don't work in the apparel business. Because clearly I'm wrong...


What you're looking at is the 2013 Syracuse Orange Grey Vapor uniform. It's got a whole bunch of technology and material benefits that all sound nice, but I'm pretty sure that's not what you're concerned with in this moment.

Syracuse fans loved the platinum basketball jerseys so much, Nike just keeps wanting to give us what we want. It's really very kind of them. And actually, they even give you the opportunity to make your own Nike jerseys on their site. I went over and decided to take this uniform to the next, logical level.



The Orange Grey will wear this uniform at some point in the upcoming season. And I suppose, as long as they never wear neon yellow again, we'll allow it this one time.
