    I like it when teams wear their old uniforms, but Good-God, those are HORRIBLE.

    lmao looks like a highway sign, and where in the world did they take this pic? A public bathroom? lol The only thing I like that NIKE looks as though it will do with future throwbacks is keep it true to their original material (or make it look vintage).

    I’m a steelers fan, but this makes my eyes burn. Good lord these are worse than their alternate uniform from las year, if that’s possible.

  4. EB Design says:

    Like the jersey. I think Black pants would have looked better

  5. Eriq Jaffe says:

    Why did they unveil it in the bathroom?

  6. Devin Neitz says:

    They will look like the chain gang!

  7. Jason says:

    Figured I’d be in the minority about this, but I actually kind of dig them. Very unique. And the patch is excellent.

  8. Brad says:

    Very cool throwback! I can’t wait to see these in action. This is a great example of a throwback, cool for use sparingly, but if they wore these are their uniforms, I would get sick of them fast.

    not bad for a one time deal, but do not want to see these become a regular alternate. For that I prefer the yellow helmet unis

  11. Aaron says:


    Yeah, I prefer the yellow helmet alternates myself. These uniforms, one time thing only. Not as a regular alternate!

  12. Sean Carter says:

    It really does look like prison uniform

  13. Mark says:

    My eyes just threw up!

  14. Ryan says:

    someone finally beat the throwback broncos for worst throwback uniform

  15. Aaron says:

    Disgusting. Thankfully they won’t be wearing these too often. Killer Bees, anyone?

  16. Igotdubbs says:

    It definitely looks unique if anything else, I still give it a thumbs up but narrowly. They probably snapped the pic at a Steelers facility locker room just by judging on the color of the tile.

  17. Jason says:

    I think they should have made a helmet that looked like it was made of leather to wear with this.

  18. Travis G. says:

    I am a die-hard Steelers fan, but these throwbacks are putrid. I see a combination of a bumble-bee and prison garb. These throwbacks are so ugly that I would welcome the unis with the “Golden Triangle” on the shoulders of the jersey! And those were just as bad! This jersey is a variation of the 1994 throwback with the Pittsburgh flag crest in the middle, and the player number in the upper left-hand corner. I wanted to see the classic 70’s unis that the Steelers wore en route to winning to four Lombardi’s during the decade.
