Fans aren’t holding back their thoughts on the Padres City Connect uniforms

Whether people love them or hate them, the conversation among fans is humorous. They’ve got a few surprisingly accurate food and beverage comparisons.

The uniforms do, in fact, look like a vibrant can of Arizona iced tea. However, one fan took the comparison a step further.

The California heat must be making Padres fans crave some cold food and beverages.

All jokes aside, the City Connect uniforms are a meaningful way to create a visual connection between fans and the team.

"“Nike is uniquely suited for our relationship with MLB because we like pushing the edges of creativity across the board, but it’s always done out of a place of supporting the players and advancing the sport. We take that same attentive energy in hearing insight from athletes and apply that to visualizing new and familiar relationships between clubs, cities and fans.” –Nike VP of North America League Partnerships Sonja Henning"

The City Connect uniforms provide a fun and new experience among MLB fans and help fans feel more identity through the uniforms. Fans undoubtedly get to connect in unique ways that only MLB offers.
