During the football offseason that never sleeps, we are busy at Lions Pride restocking the shelves and adding to our already impressive assortment of Nike apparel. The start of summer not only brings warm, sunny weather to Happy Valley but also the newest Penn State sideline gear from everyone’s favorite athletic brand. This season’s Nike line features classic logoed silhouettes that are constructed with impeccable detail. Here are a few of my favorite new must-have items from the early summer collection. Enjoy!
It seems like it has been years since Nike offered a Penn State ladies’ logoed Dri-FIT tee. This one is constructed from the brand’s signature material and boldly displays the Penn State athletic mark across the front. The flattering v-neck adds an extra dimension, while the contrasting back panel adds an unexpected twist. It will quickly become your new workout favorite!
Available in charcoal gray and navy, this item is a must-have for any Penn State fan. It is made from Nike’s Dri-FIT cotton material, so it feels like a traditional cotton t-shirt but provides all the benefits of moisture-wicking fabric.
Complete with Penn State’s team logo woven patch on the left chest, this is the “official” polo Penn State’s football team will be wearing this fall. Available in navy and white, represent your Nittany Lions in this lightweight Dri-FIT fabric when they are at home and on the road.
The new Elastika tank from Nike has been incredibly popular this spring! The slim fit and curved hem make it a great layering piece, while its elastic straps provide a barely-there feel. This item works well as a fashion piece or workout staple.
This team issued short may seem on the pricey side, but it is worth every penny. It is the ultimate performance piece worn by Penn State athletes during practice and in the weight room. Recently updated fabrication provides durability, while the Dri-FIT material offers comfort even during the hottest summer days.
Available in two colors, Nike’s new Facility long sleeve t-shirt will quickly become your go-to game day layering piece. Constructed from Nike’s new Dri-FIT cotton material, this long sleeve t-shirt feels like cotton but provides all the benefits of moisture-wicking fabric.
This Dri-FIT racerback ladies tank is the ultimate workout piece. It perfectly blends classic style and comfort and is suitable for fans of all ages. The contrast neck seam and full contrast color back panel create added dimension.
Nike really hit it out of the park with this unique design! Stylized to look like a football championship trophy, Nike celebrates tradition with a modern spin in the design of this must-have piece. Make sure you order one soon because this item won’t last long.
I’m obsessed with the contrast design of this new ladies’ tee from Nike. It is made of incredibly soft ringspun cotton and pairs perfectly with jeans. The feminine cut also provides a lovely silhouette. It is guaranteed this great item will be a favorite for years to come.
Available in both team colors, Nike’s Coach’s tee is a must-have for any Penn State football fan. A 2018 fabric update features an elevated heathered look while the woven locker loop located on the center back provides an extra thoughtful detail. This item is specifically designed for the needs of the coaching staff during practice and the needs of football fans all year long.
Central Pennsylvania is the birthplace of Linebacker U. Name a better way to pay tribute to Penn State’s great linebackers of the past and present than with this awesome new t-shirt. I’ll wait. Priced at only $30, this item makes an affordable Father’s Day gift.
The crème de la crème of polo shirts, Nike’s early season polo is truly a one-of-a-kind piece. Fabricated with subtle texture for an elevated look, this item is designed to meet the needs of Penn State’s sideline coaching staff during the hot, early-fall games. The printed Penn State wordmark and swoosh design are a nice alternative to the traditional lion logo, while the woven locker loop located at the center back adds flair.
As the summer progresses, I look forward to sharing information about all the new Nike products Lions Pride will be receiving, including more sideline merchandise, shoes and jerseys. I can’t wait for the 2018 season, Nittany Nation. Are you with me?
