Nike’s uniform unveiling a couple weeks ago got a lot of publicity so it stands to figure that they’ll see a flood of orders from fans wanting get the newest jersey designs.
For those that have been waiting, good news. Nike is taking pre-orders beginning today.
Lions fans will initially have to types to choose from. The basic jersey is being galled the “game jersey”. This will have screen printed numbers with the only features noted being a “no-tag neck label for clean comfort” and a “tailored fit designed for movement”. The price is $100.
Nike is also giving fans the opportunity to buy what the players will be wearing. The “elite jersey” sells for $250 and gives you everything from the flywire neck to water-repelling fabric.
A third option will be available in June. The $135 “limited jersey”. This edition won’t use water-repelling fabric but does have the flywire neck and twill, rather than screen printed, numbers. Why is it not available until June? My guess is because this jersey looks like the best buy of the three choices, therefore it makes sense to hold it back until the initial rush of orders passes.
