The current NBA season is nearing its halfway point and as the fans start a new year of supporting their teams, their favorite squads will be battling on the court in brand new threads.
Nike’s partnership with NBA has come to full fruition this season. Announced last June 2015 and formalized early 2017, the League and the multinational apparel company has unveiled the fourth edition of jerseys slated for this season. Fans and players saw a vast improvement in NBA jerseys as Nike not only improved aesthetics but also functionality with improved arm movement range with more comfort and less distraction. The new uniforms are made of Alpha Yarns and recycled polyester–each athletic uniform made represents approximately 20 total recycled pet bottles. Not to mention the new designs wick away 30% more sweat than the previous designs, making for the best looking and best fitting NBA jerseys to date.
NBA has seen changes to jerseys this year thanks to Nike by dropping the conventional home, away, and alternate editions and instead have been named The Association Edition (legacy white uniform all teams will have), Icon Edition (previously named road colors), Statement Edition for big games and rivalires, and finally The City jerseys which encapsulate every team’s city and fans by visually paying tribute to its passionate fanbase and rich culture of its home city.
The City Jerseys will be available at Nike Park Acebu, Ermita Glorietta, The Forth and North Triangle. Aside from Nike Parks they will also be in NBA Stores and Toby’s Arena Glorietta 2, Ecomm, GH, Megamall, MoA, San Lazaro, SM Aura, SM NE City Main, and The Block. And of course, FLOTG, it will also be purchasable from Titan Conrad, Digital, The Fort, Shangri-La Mall, and Vertis North.
Swingman jerseys will go for PHP 3,595. On the other hand, authentics will be sold at PHP 7,895.
