ohio state blogs will post literally anything
Makes sense, they've been using robots to design apparel for years.
Adidas has officially released it's new ASU alternate uniforms, dubbed Desert Ice. Of all the monstrosities they've put out over the years, I must say that I like these a lot. The gold/oragne pitchfork against a white backdrop looks sweet, especially on the helmet and pants.
Since Nike vs. Adidas is a major topic on this blog, especially the shade of maize that each company uses, I decided that I would look into the actual shade of maize and see which company uses the correct shade. In the pictures below, you will see all the shades of yellow (maize is on the far right, second row down).
Maize is a lighter yellow that obviously resembles the color of common corn. In this next picture, you see the shade of maize that each company uses.
In my opinion, Adidas uses the correct shade of maize. Nike uses more of a sunglow, jonquil, or amber shade (when compared to the 1st picture), and adidas' use of a lighter color is closer to the correct shade of maize. Although it isn't perfect, it is closer to the correct shade than Nike's "maize."
Tell me your input on the colors used by each company
So, the 2015 gear is starting to trickle out on MDen.
Kind of interesting that adidas is changing over to the Nike Maize color, it appears. But then you have other new gear that isn't original Maize.
As for most of the gear designs: oy. I hope it gets better this fall.
The Harbaugh shirt isn't up for sale on the site yet, but when it is, the credit card comes out. Also not up yet is that pair of shorts in this photo-
For the folks who don't like Adidas...
Interesting to read UA is now #2 ahead of Adidas.
Personally I never cared about the supplier... as long as it says "Michigan", is maize or blue, then the logo is means little to me. I have found Adidas shoes are better than Nike though for stability and support. That's just my $0.02 worth though.
