ALL BLACK EVERYTHING: THE SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS NEW ALTERNATE UNIFORM



Founded in 1946 and owning five Super Bowl championships, the San Francisco 49ers stand out as one of the most storied franchises in the National Football League. Featuring an honor roll that includes 23 Pro Football Hall of Famers, it is the athletes at the heart of the Niners history books. The 49ers, together with their players, the NFL and Nike, unveil a new black alternate uniform look expressive of the team’s unyielding, aggressive style of play and commitment to success.

The original 49ers color scheme included red and white, but both gold and black were added to the team’s brand identity and color palate in the 1950s. Black has primarily served as the team’s accent color — except on the practice field. During practice, 49ers quarterbacks recently took to wearing black jerseys with red numbers: a color scheme that represents authority, confidence and power. This connection precipitated the black alternate uniform, a player-requested design to transfer the sleek, sophisticated style from practice to game day.

The uniform system features specific fabrics, ventilation and fabric placement in the baselayer, padding, jersey and pants so each element works in concert. Nike Flywire technology anchors the neckline to reduce weight and provide lockdown fit over pads, while increased sleeve articulation allows better range of motion. An all-over four-way stretch fabrication provides a streamlined, shrink-wrap fit.
