Thanks for the pictures Jersey Mike. Would it be possible to take a picture of the Adizero on top on an Edge 2.0 to see the sizing differences?

Canadian Edge 2.0 eagle logo (all heavy stitched) compared with new Indo Adizero eagle logo on right

Canadian Edge 2.0 sleeve compared to new Indo Adizero (new sleeve is very narrow + no elbow reinforcement on Adizero)

As for size, I wear 52 or 54 in Canadian edge 2.0 and bought 54 in Indo Adizero as they are slightly smaller than Edge.  Material is more like the Reebok Premier material.  I bought this at Kettler (Caps' practice facility).  Price was $180 (blank). Also, the Capitals logo on front is about two inches lower on the Adizero (so it's almost on stomach rather than chest).  Overall, it feels a lot like Reebok Premier in shape and texture.  If you click on any one of those links, you can see about 8 photos I posted in the album.  Will return it tomorrow for refund 😄

 

Thanks for the info!

 

Overall, that's really disappointing to hear

If the Adizero look and feel like Reebok premiers, then god help us on how the Fanatics replicas are.

Basically it's an indo-edge with the adidas logo and different shoulders.  Barfffffffff.

Adidas should be ashamed for not learning their lesson the first time when they try to market these pieces of trash as authentic.  Nothing authentic about them.

in this photo, the Adizero is on top of Capitals Canadian-Made Edge 2.0 --- both SZ 54.  Body width is almost identical except the Edge is wider in the armpit area.

Can't thank you enough for your work there, Jersey Mike.  Was hoping to stop by Kettler when I travel there in September to check the Adizero jerseys for myself - now I won't even bother.  What garbage.

How were they able to get the jump on everyone else on stocking these?  I haven't seen anything on their Twitter account about them.

Bottom right hem (Adizero) on top (obviously, as you can see the little rubber ADIDAS "coin") 😂

Keep in mind, I have yet to see a Canadian Adizero in person, so I have no idea if the materials on Indo match Canadian.  But I do know that I dislike the shape (skinny arms, longer body, logo on the belly rather than chest, and completely different collar area) and the materials it's made from (again, reminds me of my kids' Premiers).  The patches seem identical on Canadian vs Indo, based on photos of Canadian I have seen (although I don't like the lighter kiss-cut logo, not the eagle stitching, etc.).  With that said, i am a huge fan of the Canadian Edgo 2.0 (materials, wide sleeves, collar area, etc.) (I own several Edge 2.0's from a handful of teams). On a side note, I have never actually seen an Indo-Edge 2.0 in-person (for comparison).

One other side note - sleeve length is about the same between the Canadian Edge 2.0 and Indo-Adizero.  A photo would not show this perfectly, though, given the shape differences between the two.  Also, the sleeves on Indo-Adizero SZ 52 and 54 where identical - the body width was about one inch difference between the two sizes, though.

My initial plan was to pick up a home and road of whatever was made available as soon as possible. But with what I'm seeing and hearing, I'm not sure I even want to do that.

Its really sad. I've always felt the Edge jerseys were a major step back, though the 2.0s have grown on me. But these Adidas seem to be another massive step in the wrong direction.

No doubt about it.  In a nutshell (🥜), it seems they morphed several undesirable elements into one jersey:  the unnecessarily long bodies of the Starter jerseys from the '90s, the cheap material from the Reebok Premier jerseys, the collars from the World Cup of Hockey jerseys, and the skinny arms from the Edge 1.0 jerseys! 😂

It's September and a team is just now debuting its new jerseys. Points to the USHL's Flying Aces for a nice look:

I may be a bit slow on this but I've just realised why the shoulder patches are placed ridiculously close to the neck hole. It's all to do with those shoulders and how they're cut. I'm growing to be a grumpy old man but can I state categorically that I don't like it. Not even sure if the on ice authentics will redeem this. 

As said by @Devilsguy if this is the Indos then what fresh hell the fanatics will be.

It will come to light that they are made of pudding and recycled underpants, as I've long suspected of the Premiers.

I meant real pudding. Not a cake which British people think is pudding.

Even so, excellent comedic timing on the callback!! And I like that you needed to clarify...

Exactly - the "shoulders" are almost non-existent.  To put the Capitals eagle in a spot where it is on the Edge, they'd have to put it on the sleeves.  I imagine the shape of these is a lot like the Edge 1.0 (of which I don't own any).

The jerseys that MeiGray had on display at the expo were made from a completely different material than that stuff.

So there may yet be some hope for authentics...IF we can access them. I don't think I'll be rushing out to get any Adidas just yet though, even authentic.

I was thinking of getting a set 1 Devils from this coming season.  However, it looks like rumors are that Fanatics are doing the Devils this year so that pretty much squashes that idea for me.  Oh well:(

There's definitely no hope at this time. Canadian-made authentics will not be sold at retail. They will only be made available to the teams. At this point, the only way to get one will be to buy a GI or GW.

What do you mean, Fanatics are doing the Devils? Do you mean the lettering? There's no indication that the Devils are moving away from EPS.

Game worn program.  Devils have been using Meigray for years but rumor is Devils are going over to Fanatics now.  It was inevitable.  It really sucks because of the issues they had with the Blues program (inflated pricing, inconsistent pricing, many more sets, etc).

As for the lettering as far as I know they are sticking with EPS.

Edit: To add, going to Fanatics sucks because it will make it that much harder and more expensive to get a gamer or even a GI or TI jersey now.  If the retail authentic version of the Adizero (aka Indo version) is as bad as those pictures are above, then it's a double-whammy.  I want nothing to do with those retail authentics then.

Henrik Lundqvist was on "Live With Kelly and Ryan" today. I had it on in the office in the background with the sound off while I was making my calls. They did some goofy segment where Henrik and Kelly took shots on Seacrest, wearing goalie pads. He flopped around like the Arse he is. But he and Ripa were wearing customized Rangers Adizero jerseys, without any tags or badges on the body like the Indo versions seem to have.
