Re: 2012 NFL Uniform Thread - Nike takes over

yes they were ugly. it looks like reebok did stop making football shoes. but what stops a manning from wearing a 2011 model? is there a uniform rule against it?

From Rules link:

  • Players are allowed to choose which brand of shoe they wish to wear.
  • Tape on shoes must be transparent or match the color of the shoes.
  • Personalized messages on shoes is prohibited.
  • The league's uniform policy stipulates that a team must declare itself a "black shoe" team or "white shoe" team prior to the season.
  • Each team is allowed one "accent" color for shoes.
  • NFL teams wearing black shoes must wear black shoelaces, and white-shod teams must wear white laces.
  • Kickers and punters are exempt from shoe color rules.
  • Any shoe worn by a player with an artificial limb must have a kicking surface that conforms to that of a normal kicking shoe.

unless they are going to be using scotch tape, tape will be white or black or sometimes team color

my impression is those are both fine, since the base color of the shoe is black. the all yellow ones that deangelo, carlos and laron wore all burgundy ones are not allowed and they get fined for those. BUT im not sure this year since nike said they are coming out with team color cleats

i thought both were fine too, so i guess they don't enforce that rule.

Yea and I thought some teams had like mostly one color shoe. Remember Portis and his yellow shoes? didnt' they tell him that he had to wear the same color as the rest of the team and if the team all wore yellow then that was fine?

I think the teams can wear whatever color they want so long as they all wear the same color. for some reason the tape issue I thought was to cover up the name brand of shoe not authorized by the league. In other words if the league is using Nike your fine but if you want to wear Reebok then you have to cover up the logo.

Portis was fined $20,000 for those shoes that didn't match the team. He constantly did things to draw fines and did not care. In that game, he was fined for the shoes, his socks and his tinted eye shield. They fined Sean Taylor $5000 that game for his striped socks too.

Apparently, the League threatened to suspend CP if he had another violation!
