Appalachian State football will dance into the new season with new uniforms that will make every last one of its fans proud.

Here is an image from Reddit of three players showing off some of the various combinations, which make use of solid black and white without ever traipsing into the realm of muted or boring.

High Country Press has more information behind the new Nike uniforms unveiled at the Appalachian Athletics Center on Thursday.

The biggest item to note is the loss of all the piping around the shoulders and neck in previous iterations. I agree with Lost Lettermen that the overall effect is a more solid uniform that is far more cohesive throughout.

If you are looking for a more inspired and imposing look, dropping stripes and linings is always a good idea.

Of course, this will do little to affect the actual games being played in 2013, but the Mountaineers will sure look good no matter the score.
