It's that time of year again where the shoe companies wow us with uniform tech. This week Adidas introduced A&M's new gear, something called Primeknit A1. Adidas says it's "the evolution of compression uniform system." We call it mesh.
More from Adidas, "A new body-mapping jersey design features an all-new ribbed knit pattern on the chest and shoulder pads to produce a refined fit, while knit engineered mesh channels feature Climacool technology to provide enhanced breathability and cooling zones." Body mapping sounds like what the TSA does to you at the airport.
Miami, Kansas, A&M, Nebraska, and Louisville all benefit from the new tech.
The design of the uniforms hasn't changed, the bevel is still present on the numbering. Someday that crime against humanity will be accounted for. The A&M look is inspired by A&M uniforms from the mid-70s with the shoulder striping. We didn't have the technology for bevel back then. The world was a better place.
