If Nike could only incorporate that "fake lacing" into their skates...

Gotta say I agree with most here. God awful. The Stars I actually don't mind (sorta makes sense considering the 50 we have on our flag). But the fake laces and small tiny little 'USA' in the k-swiss logo is unacceptable. How did this possibly get approved??

From SBN:

 

Nike calls those fake plastic laces "Nike Flywire," claiming that they "provided a closer fit to prevent slipping" while "also providing a nod to traditional lace neck design." Or, you could always just add real laces if "slipping" is a concern.

 

This is all coming together now.

Why did they put the USA in the K Swiss logo? I surprisingly don't mind the stars there's a whole lot of other ugly going on.

 

or the Union Pacific Railroad logo.

 

The fake laces look stupid.  I hope no one buys them.  I want to know who the idiots who approved this crappy jersey.

I thought of the UP logo too.

 

Now that I've seen it up close, the fake laces are even worse than in in the miniature pic.

 

I hope we get gold.  Then we'll have the last laugh.  Then I hope we go back to the old unis or get a new one with some sense of style.

So far the worst of them all, horrible design. Fake laces and blurry stars on the shoulders really?

 

The USA K-Swiss logo is absolutely disgusting having your country associated with a trademark should be a no-go. Even though I am not from the US I really hope this is just your third jersey and the real one will be revealed later.

Good call.

 

Actually, the shape reminds me of the outline of an old ship, if you're looking straight at the rudder (rear, stern, whatever).

 

Trainwreck. Shipwreck.

In desperate times like this I say we let those dastardly Canadians design our jerseys.

They should just adapt this to a jersey, and swap out the flight suit for a helmet"

I would want some sorta Apollo reference, seeing as how we BEAT THOSE DIRTY COMMIES TO THE MOON and all. (Even though it was ALL FAKED and all.)

I don't understand jersey designs that are white, but have the teams dark colours on the top 1/3 of the jersey.  It's insanely annoying when you're on the ice.  have fun playing Slovakia or the Czech's in those jerseys.

I'm always disappointed by team USA's jerseys. Meanwhile Sweden always looks amazing and Russia in particular is looking cool this year

Russia's "red" jerseys are the exact same cut/style jerseys as the USA's this year, down to the Nike fake laces.  They even have their own set of stars on the shoulders, to symbolize the 8 Olympic Golds the Russian/Soviet teams won...

Their "white" jerseys are certainly different. Not sure what I think about them...

But still. Fake laces...

Of all the men to model the USA jersey, why not choose someone good looking?  Not that he has to be sexy, just not... creepy.
