Since taking over in 2012, Nike has overhauled the uniforms of five teams. Of those five, four of them have asymmetrical design elements.
The definition of symmetry, in terms of uniform design, is that if one side of the uniform is a certain designed a certain way, the opposite side should feature the same element. Asymmetry is one both sides don’t match.
The Dolphins are only team redesigned by Nike that does not feature some interesting asymmetrical design element.
Is this the identity of Nike? Well, if these five designs are any indication, it’s something they like to do.
Nike has already given us toilet seat collars and sweatboxes and their pant stripe designs are have been OK. But Nike is known to stand out every now and then and this subtle design element may be their schtick.
Just an observation.
