Love ’em or hate ’em, it looks like Tennessee football may have officially brought back the white cleats.
On the Tennessee Football Instagram live video on Thursday, players were shown wearing white cleats with orange jerseys and white pants.
In recent years, the details of Tennessee’s uniform have been fairly controversial among fans and often changed.
For instance, take the pants. In 2020, Tennessee brought back the double-stripe on the pants. This was changed away from the solid white pants, which were brought back in 2019 under Jeremy Pruitt. Prior to Pruitt, Tennessee had worn a solid orange stripe on the pants that tapered into a checkerboard under Butch Jones.
However, the cleats have also been a big topic of discussion, as well.
In 2019 and 2020, Tennessee wore all black cleats with each uniform.
Although, Tennessee wore primarily white cleats with their uniforms from 2011-2018.
And now, according to their Instagram feed, it looks like Tennessee has returned to the white cleats for their uniform under coach Josh Heupel.
