Joining a long list of programs who are making fashion updates this month to their look for the 2018 season (and beyond), Virginia Tech unveiled a minor facelift for the Hokies’ uniforms on Wednesday afternoon in a relatively understated announcement about the new threads on Twitter.
The program also released a smashup hype video and uniform unveil featuring defensive coordinator Bud Foster doing the narration.
The new uniforms from Nike are just a slight tweak on the look that was unveiled back in 2016 for the entire Virginia Tech athletics department and most noticeably makes changes to the shoulder stripes, utilizing a more angular look rather than the traditional maroon/orange/white piping on the sides. It’s certainly a much cleaner look for the Hokies base uniforms, if nothing else.
It doesn’t appear as though the team will be breaking out the new threads for the Hokies’ 2018 Spring Game, which is set for this coming Saturday, April 14 at 3:30 p.m., in Lane Stadium. The team opens at Florida State on Labor Day in a big ACC battle to begin the actual 2018 season so we’ll at least see the uniforms on display early on for what should be a huge opener in Week 1.
