Nike unveiled new uniforms for the New York Jets on Thursday evening.

The most notable changes are the green helmet with a new logo and a new main colour that Nike is calling a “bolder” shade of green. The Jets are calling it “Gotham Green.”

The Jets are also switching to an all-black “colour rush” alternate uniform. It is the first time the Jets have used black since removing the colour from their uniforms in 1998.

The stripes on the jersey and pants are supposed to be “reminiscent of a jet’s flight trail.”
