Yesterday Notre Dame and Under Armour released the 2014 Shamrock Series uniform to fairly positive reviews. I haven’t had time to really post my thoughts on full uniform yet since a blogger only has so much time when Notre Dame releases new uniforms on media day and I couldn’t help but write about how Brian Kelly doesn’t want to lose to Michigan once I heard that last night. Me either, Brian. Me either.
Anyway, back to important matters – the Notre Dame Shamrock Series uniforms. Every year the Shamrock Series uniforms get released and about half the fan base loves them while the other half hates them – just like just about everything else *cough* FieldTurf *cough*. Love them or hate them this year, you have to respect Under Armour for putting some serious though behind this year uniform.
The below below highlights the process and inspiration for their first crack at an alternate uniform for Notre Dame in their first year of their apparel agreement with the University. The Golden Dome, both inside and out, provided Under Armour with their inspiration this year. After previous iterations looking sometimes sharp and sometimes questionable from Adidas, it’ll be interesting to see what Under Armour comes up with next year.
Under Armour did a good job with the standard home and away Notre Dame jerseys as well keeping them very simple and traditional.
