They are straight up awful. Why break up the stripes? Were you going for an action figure look?
Oh shit! In my previous post I pointed out the socks as being one of the nice features of the new uniform. Except I didn't do my homework properly. I only saw a picture of the front of the socks with the traditional horizontal stripes. To my horror, I finally saw an image of the back of the socks and it seems somebody was influenced by old Houston Astro's uni's and the movie Tron when they designed these.
On a more positive note, here's a closer look at the numbering and lettering which I absolutely love. They actually look a little like Team Canada jerseys from behind.
