Authentic Reebok vs Elite Nike

14 posts in this topic

Does anyone out there have both? If so, how do they compare IYO? I haven't seen an Elite in person yet but I can tell you I hated the next level down I saw in the stores. The swoosh stands out like the "horseshoe on the sleeve walmart jerseys" and there is blue stitching over white on it that looks horrible. It's not a clean look at all.

From what I have been told the official Nike jersey hasn't been released yet. Or so that's what I was told by a local shop not to far from me who has been trying to get them from some time now. For what the SRP is from Nike on an Elite the thing better do your tazes for you. I'm not sure about anyone else but buying a $250 jersey is a bit out there. I will say though that from what I have been told the Nikes are "suppose" to be a lot nicer. They're more fitting and lighter

The Nike's have been released.

Personally, I like the Nike's better especially with the check mark on the shoulder. The only problem is that there is no Colts logo on the Nike's.

Probably just having trouble getting them in then I imagine. Last time I asked about them they were still a ways off from getting any. Partially the reason why I bought a Proline helmet for training camp over a jersey

I have both and I prefer the Elite Nike, they do run slimmer than the Reebok so if your Reebok was snug in any way you'll probably want to go the next size up. Also the numbers/sizes are different so say a 50 or a Large in the Reebok isn't the same because my Luck jersey is a Large and is number 44, so if you order online double check that you're getting what you really want.

Has anyone actually seen the Limted jerseys anywhere? The middle of the line thats supposed to be around $135. I probably would have ordered an Elite off of the pro shop if they weren't $50 over suggested retail.

I agree - it just makes no sense. People accept the number as if it's an investment in a piece of sports memorabilia that may increase in value, rather than an expenditure on an article of clothing. I don't buy $250 articles of clothing. I don't think that I've ever even bought a suit for that much money (and I do my own taxes).

Of course I used to wear a suit while preparing other peoples taxes, and hated it so much that I would have gladly paid $250 if allowed to wear a Colts jersey instead. Hmmm. Now that I think about it, there may be a business opportunity in there somewhere.

They are ok. Fit tight in the shoulders. The limited and screen prints arent worth the $$$ they are printed for. Cheap made IMO. I ordered a Reebok authentic Angerer jersey a couple weeks ago. Got $100.00 off, so it was worth it. I prefer the Reebok's to the Nikie's. I tried on the Nike's and didnt care for them. I'll stick with Reebok.

Side note.. did anyone notice the pic of Manning in his new Nike Broncos uniform? Jersey: Nike Pants: Nike Shoes: Reebok.. haha

I have the new Nike Jersey. the game day and elite one. bought them both off the colts site.

The game Jersey is screen printed but is designed the way they wear on the field. like the torso and abdomen and whole back side is cloth not netted like the jerseys from last year an years before that. plus its alittle tighter fit and the shoulders are loose as if you could fit shoulder pads under it.

The ELite Jersey is stitched numbers and names, and from what the tag says, is made out of nylon and spandex. but has a modern day fit to it, with sloped shoulders.

I bought the game jersey, and got the elite for fathers day. in my opinion their both nice. just the elite is like $300. but beware their nothing like the reebok jerseys. they will feel alittle different, you just got to get use to them. but very very nice. fortinately they were not out of stock on either one (the andrew luck jerseys that is), like the RG3 one i bought my dad for fathers day. the elite jersey and game day RG3 jersey were both sold out and still are sold out. unfortinately i bought it and now im on the waiting list that goes as far as to mid august to end of august to receive it.

    • How could we pass on Whitehair in the 2nd round?
      It seems that you are trying to debate or argue for the sake of arguing, all on the premise that you have a different talent evaluation opinion.  Such is off topic.   The O.P. asked the question of how could they pass on Whitehair, and as I responded, the answer is obvious, that answer being because it is THEIR opinion that doing so was the right thing to do.   Your disagreeing with the evaluations of tptb within the Colts organization strays from the O.P. question as posed, and would be better served being put into a thread entitled "Questioning or disagreeing with draft prospects evaluations and drafting strategies of the Colts Organization".
    • Colts passed on making a GREAT Oline for a long time to come
      I love the prospects we have on the OL, I really like Whitehair also. But i honestly think a couple of our guys are more versatile. Green wouldnt have been my first choice in the secondary in round 2 but he was rated by some as the #2 FS in the draft and you have to love the upside. One thing is for certain with the Colts first two picks of the draft, We have our best offensive lineman by position in one  and our best athlete on the roster in the other!  I like it    
    • How could we pass on Whitehair in the 2nd round?
      -Blythe put up 29 reps at the combine. For comparison Travis Frederic...One of the better Centers in the league since being drafted put up 21.   What he lacks:  - bulk -Long Arms.This is why he gets out over his feet sometimes on the move and slips off blocks in an attempt to reach his man in my opinion. He is quick enough however. Savvy NT's with long arms could seriously give him a hard time -Dominant jolt in his hand punch...Which to me his hand punch is a bit slow. He also prefers to catch his man to often. These things have to change or I don't think he has much of a future in the NFL outside being a journeyman or sitting a big chunk of his career as a FA line   What he does well in my opinion:   -Good knee bend -Good hand placement -Strong enough to anchor

      I think i saw somthing about him having a camp invite for a work out but that's all
