Oregon Unveils 2019 'Nike Vapor Fusion' Uniforms


By John Ekdahl

Yesterday, Oregon rolled out their 2019 uniforms, which marks the 20th Anniversary of their unique partnership with Nike. Nike and Oregon signed a new deal two years ago:

In November of 2017, the university and Nike reached a new contract worth $88 million over 11 years. Under the terms of the new deal, the university receives between $2 million and $2.5 million in cash per year and up to $6 million worth of apparel. That is up from the current deal which is worth $750,000 in cash and $2.5 million in apparel. Nike’s contract with Oregon also secures additional royalties for the university and an additional internship for a University of Oregon student.

Additional shots of the uniforms are available on Oregon’s Twitter feed: White with Nightmare Green 1, White with Nightmare Green 2, Nightmare Green 1, Nightmare Green 2, White with Oregon Green 1, White with Oregon Green 2, Oregon Yellow 1, Oregon Yellow 2, Oregon Green 1, Oregon Green 2.

Here’s a good look at 20 years of Oregon unis with Nike.

Héctor Santiago wore a Tyler Skaggs patch on his Chicago White Sox last night. Santiago and Skaggs were actually in the same 2013 three-team trade that sent them both to the Angels, Santiago coming from the Chicago White Sox and Skaggs went from Arizona to LA.

The Pensacola Blue Wahoos wore 1969 throwbacks last night.

The Pittsburgh Steelers will be wearing a decal to honor receivers coach Darryl Drake, who died during training camp this past week.

    Oregon is making case to be featured in the positive side of the 5&1’s!!

      You’re just trying to get on my good side, aren’t you ;)

    Not a fan of the “Nightmare Green”. Oregon should stick with the kelly green, or what they call “Oregon Green”. Also their yellow would look better with green trim and numbers, which would also allow them to mix this yellow with the green better. Green helmet, yellow jersey, and green pants, would look great.

      I completely agree. One of my biggest issues with their recent sets has been that almost none of them feature both yellow and green together. They look disparate when matched, though that which somewhat solved with last season’s monochrome palate. At least they don’t have a black set (yet).

    Nightmare green? I hope the rest of this comment is typed correctly because my eyes rolled so far that I can’t see now.

    The Blue Wahoos must’ve thrown back to ’79 because Tequila Sunrise was not a thing ten years earlier.

    Forgive me if I’m missing something, but what is so 1969 about a pink and blue ‘tequila sunrise’ pullover jersey?

    It doesn’t seem to be a typo; the Pensacola Blue Wahoos really were celebrating 1969 in those 1975 Astros shirts- ???

    • Dave R. | August 18, 2019 at 2:14 pm |

      Yup, pretty sure nobody had seen anything like these in ’69. Maybe ’79.

    I find it interesting that Nike released a new uniform template, but there is almost no information on it and the “advantages” it provides. Usually there is all sorts of promo material.

    Oregon has been at the forefront of uniform innovation since Nike co-founder Phil Knight first made a sizable donation to his alma mater in the late-19, so it’s no surprise to see the Ducks will be outfitted in the company’s newest (yet unnamed) template for the 2019 season.
