  • Nike creates Swamp green sneakers with chrome orange plates for Florida

Without further ado, I present to you Nike's gator-themed uniforms for the Florida Gators this weekend. Orange numbers will be trimmed in royal blue, while player names appear in orange.

The Gators will wear an alternative "swamp green" uniform created to look like the scaly skin of an alligator.

The "swamp-green" uniform, unveiled Monday night, was under development for two years and consists of an interesting alligator-skin pattern that has prompted much criticism and laughter on social media. Might be time to re-visit the drawing board for them.

The trousers and socks are also swamp green, but don't have the scaly pattern.

Nike is no stranger to reptilian uniforms.

Trump wanted tenfold increase in nuclear weapons, says network
As a businessman and candidate, Trump frequently threatened to sue news organizations over unflattering coverage. We've all grown quite accustomed to Trump's posturing, but that doesn't make his antics any easier to defend.


And, of course, what custom uniform is complete without special shoes?

Matching sideline apparel from Nike is also available. A swamp green t-Shirt and hat with Gatorhead logo are available for purchase. UF beat A&M, 42-6, in the first meeting in 1962 and Texas A&M returned the favor in the1977 Sun Bowl in El Paso, beating the Gators, 37-14.

Florida could be without five starters and key playmaker Kadarius Toney against Texas A&M on Saturday.

Ben Hill Griffin Stadium is popularly known as The Swamp.

"'The Swamp' is a place where only Gators get out alive", Spurrier said.
