A few weeks back, we previewed Nike's entire lineup of Hyper Elite Dominance Uniforms, which are debuting this February. And today, we have a detailed look at the Ohio State edition, which they'll wear tonight against Michigan.
The concept of this series of jerseys was to pay tribute to the schools' rich histories, while providing them with the latest performance technology. For Ohio State, Nike drew from their 1960 Championship season, and the 1992 jersey, to create this new uniform design. While their 1992 season didn't yield a title, according to Nike, "their all-gray uniform and shoe look helped shape the style of college basketball for years to come."
The new jerseys feature a round neck inspired by the 1960 jersey, which has been updated with bonded taping, and gets its red graphics and grey background from the 1992 edition. The shorts showcase their current logo, and have taping inspired by the 1992 style.
Tune in tonight to see these in action, as Ohio State takes on Michigan at 9pm EST on ESPN.
