MDen releases 2013 adidas football gear: "Camo Trouble"

Submitted by Wolverine Devotee on July 12th, 2013 at 7:54 PM

Here is some of the new gear by adidas for the 2013 season. 

Undershirt for a possible camo uniform? Looks awfully similar to the VICTORS VALIANT shirt worn in 2011.

Thanks for the clarification. Bill Martin apparently botched things up on multiple levels.

Nike may have some bad stuff, but their good stuff more than makes up for it. Quality of materials and overall finish was/is just better. Those embroidered zip-up hoodies and sweatshirts, warm-ups, and such were better designed and reflected the tradition/sophistication I associate with UofM. This press-on, graphic-T, high-lite bull shit Adidas throws out on crappy cotton feels more appropriate for Sparty and the likes.

Adidas gave us the richest endorsement deal in the history of college sports. The previous best was Notre Dame (10 years $60 million) and Michigan got the $60 million for 8 years. On top of that, there is a "most favored nations" clause in the deal which keeps Michigan as Adidas' highest paid college team for the length of the deal.

My vote is for Under Armour, too bad it doesn't mean anything in the grand scheme of things. I've just been so disappointed with Adidas selection over the last few years.

The Polo shirts slot and a few of the T Shirts are cool. I hate NIKE for basically dumping us and turning there attention towards USC and OSU. Don't get it twisted Nike left us before we left them. Adidas should be applauded for stepping up w the largest $$$ contract ever for a University. So all you Nike honks just get over it. I say fuck Nike!

I always hold out hope that if people stop buying this crap, Adidas will stop making this crap.

Then I realize large segments of our fanbase will gobble this stuff up.

There's a reason Adidas won't let us have nice things.

hasn't that fad been dead for years? Love the blue jacket with the stitched M, though, and think it's striking how the stitches manage to evoke a whole glorious history with the simplest gesture. Think they stumbled on something there. . . .

UVa is a Nike-exclusive school, and I like more of what they put out for UVa than what Her Dassler and them put out for Michigan. Besides lacrosse stuff (some of which has been mega-flashy lately), the stuff they put in the UVa Athletics store is pretty subdued. There are exceptions, of course, but generally it's all pretty well-executed. That may be the happy result of being a low-priority for their designers.

These are dope I will be shit out of gear. I like Nike but we look damn good in our white Adidas road unis and everyone jocks Nike. We keep it original with our unis and the players don't ever mention any indicating that they dislike Adidas. All things aside, those camo shirts are dope and the polos are pretty sweet IMHO

There's certainly some questionable stuff, but I maintain that the zip up pindot hoodie from the last several years is one of my favorite M garments ever.
