In honor of le' bowl de super this Sunday (let's pretend that's how you say it in French), I'm doing a special edition of Kaliwood Fashion Awards! Just because you don't often think of football and fashion together, doesn't mean the people at Nike, Adidas, UA, etc. aren't working with style advisers to design uniforms for professional athletes. They obviously have to be functional and protective, first and foremost. But they also want them to look GOOD.
So let's see who wins the award for the Top 5 NFL Uniforms of the 2013-14 Season.
1. Seattle Seahawks
And they are in the Superbowl! Yay!
The seahawks usually take the top title simply because the team has interesting colors. You're not going to see lime green in most professional sports teams. And that's why I love it. With the navy and white it just pops. And Nike always makes them look fresh.
2. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
I mean.. they made pewter and red work. That is impressive. The helmet and pants are so metallic, you can't help but appreciate the look!
3. Philadelphia Eagles
I love the Eagles move towards this more deep teal green than their kelly green of the past. It's modern and sleek! I also give them props for the helmet. I like the wings, instead of just the Eagle head.
4. Houston Texans
It's not easy to make the classic red, white and blue look fierce. But JJ Watt and the Texans always look good. They took their patriotic scheme from boring to bold, unlike some others (looking at you Giants).
Yes, I'm biased on this one (Who-Dey!). But, the Bengals bring this one home because of their helmets. Most NFL teams sport an image of their logo on the helmet. Snooze fest. Cincinnati could have easily slapped a tiger face or the stupid 'B' on the helmet, but they went with the all-over tiger stripe. Now, that is cool. And has been as long as they've had it. What girl doesn't love an animal print??
So what do you think? What NFL team sports your favorite look?
Don't forget to watch the Super Bowl this Sunday! Or, you know, the Puppy Bowl. Whichever suits you.
