With a new season will come a new look, as Nike have unveiled their eagerly anticipated 2012 NFL uniforms! Rather than painting each team with the same brush, Nike left it up to the 32 teams to choose their own adventure, resulting in the Seahawks summoning an all-new look, while Chicago and Kansas City enjoy subtle flips to their fits. The Raiders, Packers, Eagles, Falcons and Panthers elected to stick with the classic jersey construction, while the rest of the league will take to the turf in lightweight jerseys incorporating Flywire for a lockdown fit, mesh ventilation for cooling, and four-way stretch materials for mobility. Check the pics below, and get to Nike Inc

And there's no Flywire on these, but a super-breathable featherweight Hyperfuse upper means the Nike Lunar HyperGamer will be able to compete with the Swoosh's top two non-signature series. Here's a look at the Lunar HyperGamer in four new colorways, a set that's done half in Oklahoma City Thunder colorways, perhaps foreshadowing sneaker journeyman Russell Westbrook's adoption of the model when the NBA season finally begins. There's also one you'd call out for being a Sacramento Kings colorup along with one classic 'Blackout' look, so click through to see 'em all, let us know how they rank and stick with Sneaker News for the US release dates.
