Arizona State, under a new apparel deal with Adidas, has had some impressive uniform combinations. The next will assuredly become a fan favorite.

When the Sun Devils play Oregon on Oct. 29 they will rock the "Dark Ops Collection" cleats debuted by Adidas a week before the game. The shoes will honor the late Pat Tillman, who was an Arizona State football player before earning a spot in the NFL — then eventually leaving football to enlist in the military. Tillman was killed by friendly fire in 2004.

Both shoes will have the "PT-42" logo on the cleats; the socks are camouflage. The gold Adidas logo represents "the gold outline of the U.S. Army Rangers" patch as well as the U.S. flag patch.
