Photo: Michigan football shows off new matte helmet

On Tuesday, the Michigan football program unveiled its new Jordan brand uniforms from Nike. One of the minor tweaks made to the Wolverines’ look with makeover was a brand new helmet.

Don’t worry though, Michigan fans, the helmet is still iconic.

The Wolverines helmet will continue to feature the maize wings, but the remainder of the helmet will be a matte blue. The result is a subtle, but modern twist to the Michigan unis.

Pretty nice, right?

And yes, even the helmets feature the Jordan logo. Don’t worry, it shouldn’t take too long before we no longer view this as simply a “basketball logo,” even if it is Air Highness himself throwing down a jam.

Basketball logo or not, the new Michigan gear is pretty incredible so the fans have to be feeling exciting about what is to come over the course of the athletic department’s 11-year deal with Nike.
