Fans will have something else to look forward to seeing this season as the Miami Hurricanes make history with their uniforms. For the very first time, the Miami Hurricanes will wear uniforms unlike any other. Their uniforms are made from repurposed marine materials. We will get to officially see the uniforms on Sept. 2 when they go up against LSU for the AdvoCare Classic. The game will occur at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
Everyone knows that the oceans are full of garbage and animals are in danger every day from dying due to the filth. This is one way to give back and show others that what is one man’s trash, is another man’s treasure.
The uniforms in question that the Miami Hurricanes will be donning came about after a collaboration with Parley For The Oceans. This specific organization advocates and brings attention to marine life threats.
Miami Hurricanes Uniforms Have A “Save The Oceans” Vibe
The new uniforms are, in part, made from regenerated yarn. The yarn comes from old fishing nets and other nylon waste materials that were left in various marine habitats. Another thing to look out for is the players’ cleats and gloves, both of which feature the reuse of materials from oceans.
In a statement from Coach Mark Richt, he says that there are ecstatic to wear the uniforms including the cleats and gloves. Especially, since they will debut them for their season opener. Also, that they are ready for the Adidas and Parley collaboration with UM. Through the partnership, they will promote the betterment of the oceans worldwide.
There are also new specials designs on the jerseys. Not only are they now orange, but the modern accents represent the cause to end the pollution in oceans. On the sleeve caps and pants is a wave print. There are palm trees on the sides of the jerseys that represent the ecosystems in Southern Florida.
