NEW LOOK: Vikings unveil new uniforms at annual draft party

Posted: Updated:
MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) -

After spending months collaborating with Nike designers, the Minnesota Vikings unveiled the new uniforms players will be sporting this season at the team's annual draft party at the Metrodome.

The new look is described as a modern twist on the classic Vikings uniforms, featuring a new font for numbers that incorporates curves designed to reflect the bow of a Viking ship.

"The fine details make this uniform special," said Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway. "The threading in the collar, just the subtle little things that are going to make people say, ‘That's our Vikings uniform as we know it.' To the fan who is really a Minnesota Vikings fan true to its core, they're going to love this uniform."

The new uniforms feature a more classic look than their previous version. The helmet is a slightly darker shade of purple with a matte finish and a black facemask. The jerseys no longer bear a gold border, which designers credit with cleaning up the look.

The new design allows for up to four color combinations:

1. White pants with white jersey
2. White pants with purple jersey
3. Purple pants with purple jersey
4. Purple pants with white jersey

The new uniforms will be on display throughout the Miller Lite Vikings Draft Party and again on Vikings "Football Day" on Saturday at Mall of America Field.

The uniforms are available for purchase immediately at the on-site draft events, online at Vikings.com and in the Vikings Locker room store. Other retail locations should have the new uniforms in stock by this weekend.
