Paul Lukas, of ESPN and Uni-Watch, recently interviewed Under Armour designer Adam Clement, the man behind this polarizing look. Clement basically has a hand in all uniform or on-field product, and, as someone who’s in the same field, I’m all ears when it comes to designers sharing their vision and design process. This quote from Clement is a personal reminder I’ve found myself repeating often over the years:

“When you do a project like this, you always want to go a little further than maybe you’re even comfortable with yourself, and then you can bring it back a little. I always have to remember that I am not the target audience.”

So much easier said than done. Take a few minutes and read for yourself: Part 1, Part 2, Bonus

Boston College wore these a kits a couple of weeks ago, but I thought it was appropriate to share today. Plus, the uniform’s for a good cause as they’re partnered up with the Wounded Warriors Project, which is always worth highlighting. The cleats are pretty dope in a Captain America way; almost as cool as my USA flag running shoes that my friend Caroline captured me in.
