The Minnesota Vikings unveiled their new Nike uniforms tonight at the NFL Draft party held at Mall of America Field in Minneapolis. The uniforms are described as "a modern representation of Nordic culture combined with the Vikings long-standing football tradition, the new design provides a modern twist on the classic Vikings uniforms."

The Vikings worked with Nike designers to come up with the new look that features "a matte purple helmet with a black facemask, a refreshed, brighter gold accent, unique new font and numbers featuring curves that reflect the bow of a Vikings ship, and single gold and white stripes on the shoulders and pants reminiscent of early Vikings uniforms."

Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway says "the fine details make this uniform special...the threading in the collar, just the subtle little things that are going to make people say, ‘That’s our Vikings uniform as we know it.’ To the fan who is really a Minnesota Vikings fan true to its core, they’re going to love this uniform.”

The new jerseys will be available for purchase at immediately. What do you think of the new uniforms?
