Nike and the NBA Release City Edition Uniforms

posted by Oscar December 27, 2017

The NBA’s move to Nike has delivered its latest rewards by way of a fourth uniform category under their uniform Editions initiative this season.

Celebrating elements of the league’s 30 franchises, The City Edition designs honor the teams’ hometowns and its legends. Some of my personal favorites include the Chicago Bulls design seen above that was inspired by our iconic city flag, the Celtics incorporating parquet floor of “The Garden” into its grey jersey, and Phillie’s patriotic details like a parchment paper-inspired base color and script that mimics the original Declaration of Independence.

The Lakers’ jersey went in a different direction by instead creating designs that pay tribute to franchise legends as part of the “Lore Series.”

Spain’s FC Barcelona, Italy’s Inter Milan and AS Roma, and Chelsea and Tottenham from the UK, all have new kits announced this week. All the teams listed will be sporting camo designs on their latest jerseys.

Some of the colors have some interesting names and titles. Chelsea’s dark grey shirt has “modern electric blue” features and Spurs will be wearing a dark purple kit “rich yellow” highlights.
