COINCIDING with the recent start of the 2019-20 season of the National Basketball Association, Nike has released its latest NBA City Edition uniforms — the third set of uniforms in three years.
The uniforms take varying inspirations stemming from the geographic details of the city where a particular team is situated. In the case of the Orlando Magic (in photo), the jersey brings to the fore the region’s citrus groves it was known for long before the theme parks it is now famously hosting. The jersey pops citrusy orange on the its neckline, side panels and shorts.
All 30 teams in the NBA are represented in the City Edition uniforms.
Select jerseys from the NBA City Edition collection will be available at select Nike stores for P3,595.
Meanwhile, the sixth iteration of the adidas shoe line of NBA All-Star Damian Lillard of the Portland Trail Blazers is now available locally.
Described as the embodiment of Lillard’s creativity and persona, the Dame 6 introduces a variety of energetic colorways, including “Ruthless” and “Hecklers,” which tell the story of Lillard’s dichotomy on-and-off the court.
The Ruthless colorway features the word “Ruthless” painted in bold script on the medial midsole. The black textile mesh upper, providing breathability, is highlighted with split hues of neon pink and green and accented with a black suede overlay on the toe box. It is now available in the local market.
Hecklers, meanwhile, is centered around four team colors and features a graphic print with zipped up emojis. Each colorway is designed with a “Get Dealt With” message and the final touch includes the word “Hecklers” strategically placed on the heel tab for all to see. The shoe drops in the country on Jan. 18.
The Dame 6 is the first model in the Dame series to feature Lightstrike technology, the super-light midsole that provides the perfect balance of lightweight cushioning and on-court responsiveness.
The shoe is available for P6,000. — Michael Angelo S. Murillo
