Burton Unveils U.S. Snowboard Team Uniforms


Professional snowboarder or indie skateboarder? We're not sure. But, it doesn't matter because we like it! The Burton uniform for the U.S. Olympic Snowboarding Team to compete in at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, that is. Can't you just picture Shaun White's lovely locks adorning the shoulders of this plaid jacket? Brilliant.

What's also brilliant is the technology infused in these two street wear-like pieces of apparel. Both the pants and jacket are made of waterproof, breathable Gore-Tex for maximum on-snow performance. We're not sure the chenille crest adds any superhero powers, but it sure looks nice.

And the Burton team riders agree. In on the design were Olympic hopefuls like Mason Aguirre, Kevin Pearce, and the latest Dancing with the Stars sensation, Louie Vito. Pirouettes and the jitterbug might not be possible in these vintage-style denim snowboard pants, but we're pretty sure double corks in the halfpipe will be. –Alicia Carr
