Football Fashion: Nike Unveils (Sort of) New Uniforms for NFL

Nike's new NFL uniforms don't take too many chances, but there are subtle design changes here and there. And the Seattle Seahawks got a total makeover. But designers can still hope. On Tuesday in New York City, Nike unveiled its new line of NFL uniforms, rolling out revamped outfits and accessories for all 32 teams to wear during the 2012 season. Most of the changes are related to performance—new fabric for increased mobility, a “Flywire” neck designed to provide a shrink-wrap fit and lighter padding round out the Elite 51 unis. With the exception of a flashy facelift for the Seattle Seahawks, few teams got more than the addition of some subtle trim and the trademark swoosh in the design department. But this being the NFL, hype abounds. TIME’s Feifei Sun and Adam Sorensen walk you through the new spring fashions.
