I'm very impressed. Those Vapor Untouch 2's look sick

Like the gloves and cleats combo now hopefully the equipment is updated along with the rosters throughout the year.

This is great. Really hope this is something they continue to do yearly because it's something that IMO greatly enhances the visuals and makes the close ups look that much better. They don't need to always blow it out like this year but this should definitely be something that gets attention and new items every year.

Question for Kane if he sees this, are the Jordan's "player retro exclusives" only available for those who wear them? Or we have the option to put the Js on any player?

I'm thinking they're a new "generic" cleat made to look like the Jordan 6. Just like they kept the Adidas cleats from before and just renamed them to be generic.

Finally more options for created coaches. Still would like to have seen the ability to adjust gear for cold weather games though but overall I'm impressed. This was the biggest jump in the amount of player customization options in many years.

Equipment looks amazing!
 
# 13 Kwarren3 @ 06/29/16 03:06 PM
A round of applause for Kane, this is a great update for sure. Don't let the higher ups tell you another updste isn't needed for another few years though. We all know you want more just like us. Keep it up my man, you've done us all proud!
 
# 14 Unlucky 13 @ 06/29/16 03:07 PM
I like what I see, for sure. Doesn't look like a downgrade anywhere. I really like the look of the middle gloves in the pic focusing on that area.
 
# 15 pimpycraig @ 06/29/16 03:25 PM
Great updates.
 
# 16 Rams_3 @ 06/29/16 03:26 PM
FINALLY, UPDATED EQUIPMENT HAS COME BACK.....TO MADDEN. In my rock voice lol. In all seriousness tho thanks for the huge equipment overhaul. It was needed and makes the game look sooo much more realistic. Keep it up.

Kinda off-topic, but man, Madden is a gorgeous game in still shots.
 
# 20 skinnybonez @ 06/29/16 03:37 PM
Looks like they scanned the 6 but remove the Jordan logos.. no home/away option sux when playing online
