Irish Unveil New Shamrock Series Unis
By Jim Weber, LostLettermen.com
After the disaster that was Notre Dame’s 2012 Shamrock Series uniforms, the Fighting Irish and Adidas have teamed up to release a second version to be worn on Oct. 5 vs. Arizona State that, to our amazement, isn’t a complete abomination.
Adidas and Notre Dame went with a more conservative look this time around with a shimmery gold background, golden chrome shamrock and green facemask for the helmet. The uniforms are all-white with gold numbers and a gold shamrock on the shoulders, making both really pop on the white.
The jerseys and pants are very sharp. Our only complaint is the chrome shamrock on the helmet that makes it look like Notre Dame’s logo is a shamrock-shaped mirror. But compared to last year’s hideous alternate uniforms, we aren’t complaining. Grade: B
