Today marked a new era for the National Football League, as the world’s leading athletic apparel brand finally took over the responsibilities of outfitting the world’s greatest athletes on the gridiron – a partnership that has been long-awaited by fans of both the Swoosh and the NFL. Nike invited several members of select media to witness the unveiling of the partnership, highlighting the all-new Nike Elite 51 on-field NFL uniform, fortified by Pro Combat padding, Flywire panels, and designed perfectly to maximize mobility, maximize protection at “hit zone” areas, and maximize ventilation for optimal thermoregulation. Below, we have detailed images of the Nike Elite 51 Uniform as well as a look at all thirty-two teams uniforms, featuring some of Nike’s marquee NFL athletes like Seattle’s Marshawn Lynch, New York’s Darrelle Revis and Victor Cruz, and New England’s Wes Welker, but this serves as just the tip of the iceberg of what’s to come in terms of on-field gear, team apparel, and much, much more.

The 2011 New York Giants continue to push full steam ahead in the Playoffs, winning the NFC Championship Game in dramatic fashion and earning a trip to Indianapolis for a Superbowl XLII rematch with Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. While not many sneaker stories have sprouted from the NFL this season, we did get an unexpected treat in the form of Air Jordan VI PE Cleats worn by New York Giants Left Tackle David Diehl, who has served as Eli’s protector since the QB’s rookie season in 2004. With two different Air Jordan VI colorways already confirmed for this Fall (the ‘Olympic’ and the ‘Gold Medal’), Diehl’s PE sightning could possibly point to more Air Jordan VI releases this year, continuing an interesting sequence of Air Jordan Retro releases following last year’s Air Jordan V. Diehl’s on-field Air Jordans had a Red and Black colorway in the two-toned color-blocking originated by the ‘Carmine’ release in 1991, so how would you feel if a sneaker version released? Check out some ‘snaps’ of David Diehl and his Air Jordans below and give us your Superbowl XLVI predictions! via Yahoo!.

Nike Football Innovation Summit

With Nike taking the helm of the NFL’s on-field jerseys and equipment in 2012, consumers and athletes can expect an even more emphatic focus on one of Nike’s most indestructible pillars – Nike Training. Nike invited select media from around the globe to experience Nike Football at its finest, outlining its earliest and most honored roots and introducing some new and innovative products. At center stage of the information session was the revolutionary Nike SPARQ Sensory Performance, which, according to Nike SPARQ Performance Director Paul Winsper, allows them to ‘integrate both sensory and physical training together’ and build the best athletes in the world. Pittsburgh Steelers Quarterback and Oregon Ducks alum Dennis Dixon demonstrated a few of the tailor-made Nike SSP drills, which we, in a nutshell, can describe as an exponentially advanced form of rubbing your belly and patting yourself on the head simultaneously. Trust us – it’s a lot tougher than it sounds. The results of the SSP tests could then be compared to scores achieved by others in the same sport, giving the athlete an idea of where improvements could be made and to highlight the athlete’s peak talents. Dr. Alan Reichow, Global Research Director of Nike SSP, boils it down even more concisely by stating that SSP allows the athlete to ‘see sport better’.

In addition to the Nike Football/Training educational experience, the media attendees were given a rare opportunity to test Nike’s newest training tools side-by-side with top-flight football players at Nike World Headquarters as well as on the Autzen Stadium field (home of the Oregon Ducks). The marquee training tools introduced during the training session was Nike Hyperwarm Shield Mock Top and the Nike SPARQ Vapor Strobe Eyewear (available online and at select retailers for $300); the Vapor Strobe is a high-tech set of stylish goggles that purposefully inhibits an athlete’s sight via vision-blocking blinking strobes at various frequencies, allowing the athlete to rely on and refine sensory abilities. NFL superstars such as Greg Jennings, Darrelle Revis, and Larry Fitzgerald have trained with the Vapor Strobe and have individually concluded that Nike’s state-of-the-art Training methods as well as the advanced performance gear have directly contributed to their individual success in a sport that rewards training more than any other. Nike has played a major role in the overall increase in athleticism and performance in the NFL for decades, and with the implementation of Nike SPARQ Sensory Performance and game-changing tools like the Vapor Strobe, expect the bar to be raised even higher.
