New Purdue train logo featured on football jerseys

Purdue Uniform

Not a great photo, by any means, but this is the only look I’ve seen of the much-debated new Purdue train logo on the football jersey. Back in April, the logo change was a hugely popular topic. And let’s just say, not many Boiler fans were happy with the tweaks Nike made. Well, they’re going to have to get used to it, because it’s displayed at the bottom of the collar, just like the old logo, sandwiched in between the new “B1G” patch and the Nike swoosh.

As much as Purdue fans disliked the logo change, there is something to be happy about: Nike didn’t give Purdue the bi-colored collar it has incorporated on NFL jerseys. That said, the flywire collar – aka the stripes that look like thin strips of black tape – are back, and they’re an acquired taste. web editor Brent Yarina writes the Clothes Call features.

Need to change to ARMOR instead of Nike. Nike is outdated!

I don’t know who approved Nike’s “Flywire” collar, but it needs to stop. That is what is preventing me from buying any Nike jersey. Purdue’s new train logo looks like a clip art picture. If you’re going to change a logo, update it, not date it.

Nike is never outdated but they really messed it up on this one. I’m a Nike snob and I’d have to say this is the 2nd time that they messed up with Purdue. The first was their lack of circulation regionally and locally of Purdue product and the second is them messing with a logo that we will all say was the best in the conference. I guess they’re too busy sucking up to Ohio State and the SEC.
