Pro Combat College Football Packs:
Nike has partnered with ten elite football programs to launch the new Nike Pro Combat Uniform, the lightest football uniform ever made. In launching this innovative system of dress, Nike designers immersed themselves in the rich history of each program to bring inspirational cues to the look and design of each uniform. In connection to the November uniform launch, Nike is proud to offer a limited number of Nike Pro Combat College Football Packs, that will be sold exclusively at 21 Mercer beginning Friday.
Each custom-designed and school-specific Nike Pro Combat College Football Pack features Nike Trainer 1s and an energy T-shirt that were created specifically for each program. The Nike Trainer 1 is a highly sought-after collector style, with some limited-edition models fetching over $1000 at auction. This exclusive Trainer 1 uses colors and artwork from each school’s Nike Pro Combat Uniforms. Only 9 pairs of each school’s Trainer 1’s are being made available at retail. Each school received between 80 and 120 pairs (with the exception of Texas, 277, and Florida State, 195) solely for distribution to players and sideline staff. In addition, Nike has created premium express tees for each school’s November match-up, these T-shirts were designed to tie directly back to the Nike Pro Combat Uniform and speak to the heritage of each program.
