On the last day of July, the Charlotte Hornets unveiled their revamped Nike x Jordan Association and Icon uniforms. But what awaited was the Classic edition uniform, which has finally been revealed. Since restoring the Hornets nickname to its rightful home in 2014, MJ and company have done their due diligence in honing in on the nostalgia that gave Charlotte the moniker ‘Buzz City’. Refined branding came along with the Hornets nickname reboot three years ago, but there was still that clamoring for the 1988 vibes that filled the Charlotte Coliseum four nearly a decade-and-a-half.
Jordan and the Hornets brass have delivered with a modernized Classic edition of the Hornets’ original uniforms. Constructed from Nike’s modern tech – the uniforms boast the original bold letting proudly spelling out Charlotte across the chest. But adding a Jumpman to the right collar. Every detail is on-point, from the pinstripes to the elongated numbers and even an old school Hugo on the waistband…the classic Hornets uni’s will be worn sometime this season. Only thing missing is the honeycomb paint on the hardwood.
