College football: Hurricanes unveil ‘Legend of the U’ uniforms
The University of Miami announced on Monday that the Hurricanes will unveil new “Legend of the U” uniforms on during the Oct. 8 game against Florida State.
The release from Miami’s athletics department described the uniform as "an echo of the past that looks to the future." The uniforms resemble those of the Hurricane teams from the '80s and '90s that once dominated college football and pop culture.
“Attention to detail was crucial to replicate a retro look, and during the research phase of the design, jersey numbers, stripes and logos were precisely measured from archival products worn by the Hurricanes to create an accurate execution of the design elements,” the release said.
This retro style will be seen in both the home and away uniforms.
The orange jerseys and white pants will be worn against Florida State, and the second version, which will debut on Oct. 20 against Virginia Tech, features white jerseys and orange pants.
