Not seeing the tapa band on the arm. Worried about it not being on the pants. And don’t like how “Hawaii” looks on new uniforms.

Same here.
Not doubting, not hating, not loving, just hoping because I am a fan.

:waiting: Time to make it happen!

Personally, they look horrible. No tapa accent. The green looks more teal. But even the HAWAII and number on the front was just clean and tight with UA. But whatever. We'll see how "creative" adidas will get with these in the years to come

Really appreciate Adidas backing the home team for a 4 year deal. I've been supportive of Under Armor all these years when they were supporting UH. Looks like I'm gonna need to switch my sports gear to Adidas now.

Coach Graham is familiar with Adidas. His ASU team back in 2015 switched companies from Nike to Adidas for twice the money. So he's seen first hand the business relationship between the school and the company, heard feedback from his players, students and alumni and may have been instrumental in bringing Adidas to UH football ( that's what my intuition tells me).

Based on the fact that players are still wearing UA gear in news videos, I think the Adidas deal was freshly minted when announced and maybe designs were not finalized. At least I hope so.

Looks like Adidas did a pretty good job of supplying the team with Adidas clothing.

Yeah, Adidas has always done a great job, I like their designs better than Under Armour's.
That may be the youth spent in Eastern Europe speaking, but it's always been my favorite sportswear.

I've liked adidas for a long time. Never cared for Nike or Under Armour.

I was pleasantly surprised with how the unis looked. I like the huge numbers and the colors were excellent. Still a little plain but whatevers. Cause Fresno is Adidas too and their uni is basically just swapping out colors and logos. I did like that UA at least always had some kind of tribal detailing in the unis. But I like what I seen so far. It's just funny to see players and coaches still wearing all the UA gear especially on TV.

I think in the case of the players, for practices, they use old uniforms, and I guess Adidas only sent them so many for this season, so they're forced to use the UA stuff, still.
