As we learned last year with the Nebraska Cornhuskers alternate uniforms, football and fashion are one in the same. Pictures surfaced today of new custom Adizero 5 Star cleats that the team will wear this season. The photo’s can be seen here on the teams equipment twitter account.
The footwear is a change from last years black cleats. The 2013 edition are white and red, with the word Huskers running diagonal near the heel. The classic Nebraska “N” also appears on the back of the shoes with Huskers going through it.
Unlike many of Adidas attempts at making a great fashion statement (just search for the NCAA Tournament or Louisville’s Super Regional baseball uni’s), they have done a good job with the Husker football team. UnRivaled alternate uniforms were received well by Husker fans, and the new cleats have a look that will be appealing to players and recruits.
Now we will have to sit back and wait for the team to unveil the alternate uniforms for the upcoming season, and figure out who they will wear them against.
