The St. Louis Blues, in partnership with the NHL and Adidas, revealed their Reverse Retro jersey for the first time on Monday.
The jersey completely flips the colors used on the team’s sweater worn in the late 1990s by Blues legends such as Wayne Gretzky, Brett Hull, Al MacInnis, Chris Pronger and Grant Fuhr.
The new jersey features a bold red as its predominant color. The stripes – which were red on the original jersey that was first revealed in 1995 – are now yellow, and the club’s traditional blue now appears on the sleeves and along the jersey’s base.
The ’90s iteration of the Blue Note remains unchanged.
For the first time in League history, all 31 teams are participating in the alternate jersey program. adidas worked closely with each club to design a Reverse Retro jersey that represented unique and historical moments from the team’s history while remixing the colors to create something new and never seen before.
The program has been in development for the last two years.
Additional Reverse Retro merchandise and accessories will be available soon. Fans can learn more by signing up to receive retail e-mail communications from STL Authentics.
