Nike’s NBA uniform debut this season has left some puzzled. First there was there was the rather fragile nature of the uniform’s composition as tears and rips forced Nike to investigate. There was also the absence of a Christmas uni which disappointed a contingency of fans and then there is the back collar that no one can seem to explain. But all that aside, the Swoosh is settling in nicely with their new role as NBA outfitter. And with that comes a brand new slate of uniforms dubbed the ‘City Edition’. Adding a fifth uniform type to the fold…all 30 teams will don the new uniforms.
With each uniform playing to a cultural aspect of the city to which that franchise calls home, the uniforms can be seen below and you can read up on the inspiration for each on Nike, Inc.
