The Miami Dolphins have chosen to take full innovation in the Nike Elite 51 football uniform while keeping their design aesthetic true to years past. Designed and engineered from the inside out, the new uniform focuses on creating a system where the baselayer, padding, jersey and pant work in concert. Flywire technology is incorporated into the neckline to reduce weight and provide a lockdown fit over the pads. The uniform also features increased sleeve articulation for better range of motion and the integration of new four-way stretch fabrication to provide a streamlined shrink-wrap fit.
In addition to serving as the Dolphins on-field supplier for uniforms, sideline apparel, practice wear and baselayer, Nike will also provide men’s and women’s fan wear apparel. Athletes will now also be able to wear the Nike Vapor Jet 2.0 Glove featuring the interlocking team logo on the palms.
