Lombardi trophy inspires new Super Bowl gear

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) - When Seattle and Denver take the field at MetLife Stadium on Feb. 2 for Super Bowl 48, they'll be outfitted in a collection from Nike that was inspired by the Vince Lombardi trophy.

The Nike Super Speed collection is light-weight and created for all outdoor weather conditions.

Designers for the football gear had to solve a design dilemma considering the temperature and weather conditions for an outdoor Super Bowl game could vary.

From five to 50 degrees, and the potential for rain, snow and sleet, the collection is "unified," according to Nike.

Some of the highlights: vapor shield gloves for receivers; the Nike Pro Combat High Performance Max Shield Hood; titanium nano-coated jackets for players on the sidelines and the carbon vapor shoe.
