Parley for the Oceans

Miami Hurricanes Football Press Release


Determined to keep their surrounding oceans clean, and as a nod to the University of Miami’s renowned Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, adidas and the Hurricanes’ alternate uniforms were created through adidas’ continued collaboration with Parley for the Oceans. The environmentally-conscious uniforms have been crafted from repurposed and upcycled materials.

  • ECONYL® YARN: The adidas Primeknit A1 football uniform is composed of over 70% regenerated ECONYL® yarn; a raw material transformed from fishing nets and other nylon waste intercepted in marine environments.
  • The jersey’s base is complimented by twill numbering.
  • The design within the numbering features a wave print, fusing Miami’s signature dark green with the EQT green colorway that has become synonymous with adidas x Parley.
  • The base of the uniform is white, eliminating the use of toxic color dyes and materials.
  • To resemble Miami’s Ibis mascot, the uniform’s white and orange colorways resemble the seagull’s white feathering and orange beak.
  • New, custom-made typography is inspired by the same lettering used for the Orange Bowl
  • Parley’s signature EQT design is throughout the numbers, using an orange colorway with a replica plastic finish to resemble net and plastic bottles.
  • The jersey features a body-mapping design, using a ribbed, knit pattern on the chest and shoulder pads to produce a refined fit, while knit engineered mesh channels feature Climacool technology  to provide enhanced breathability and cooling zones
  • The new uniforms will make their on-field debut against the University of Virginia on Sat., Oct. 11, at Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium.

Most of you know me as The Prodoucher FunGus, but my government name is Gustavo A. Chacon. Born and raised in the 305! I say Miami sports fans should be grateful for what we've been able to experience, at least in my lifetime. Pretty well rounded in the major sports, but baseball is probably my weakest subject. Doesn't stop me from writing about it! Either way, I find it pointless to memorize every sports stat since the beginning of time when I can just look it up, so don't expect me to drop some knowledge unless it's useful in the real world. However, I'm not afraid to tell you why your opinion is 100% wrong, lest we agree, of course. Wanna get into it? Argue with me @lemoncityfungus. It'll be fun!
