The new uniforms for USA Basketball were recently unveiled and I really like what I see so far.  They are made from the same materials that the NCAA Hyper Elite uniforms are made from so they are light and made from green materials.  I can’t put my finger on it but I’m also digging the USA logo on the chest.  I’d love to see a blue or red set accompany this white version.  Here is some more info on the new uniforms Via Alec Banks at HypeBeast:

Combining Nike’s lightest, most technologically advanced textiles with iconic graphics, the Nike Hyper Elite Basketball Uniform helps boost players’ performance and communicates the pride of USA Basketball. The innovation begins with Nike Aerographics, an engineered fabric that is a passive cooling solution allowing greater design and graphic flexibility while creating mesh areas in a garment without adding seams. It adds graphic interest to a garment that actually contributes to the performance by increasing air circulation. The Nike Hyper Elite Shorts to be worn by the USA Basketball team alone weigh in at 14 ounces lighter than the average shorts currently worn by professional players. The Hyper Elite Jersey, with its 3D-structured Dri-FIT fabric, helps pull sweat away from the skin and reduce cling while a functional flock screenprint on the inside of the collar provides further sweat management. The sleeveless v-neck silhouette, including hem vents and modified armholes, offers mobility while the slim fit reduces bulkiness and distraction. Finally, the debut of the Nike Hyperdunk, part of the landmark Lunarlon Collection. An innovative combination of advanced Nike Flywire technology and a basketball-specific Lunarlon cushioning system, this light, more supportive, durable and breathable shoe is expressly designed to meet the demands of elite basketball players worldwide. As modeled by Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, Deron Williams and LeBron James, the United States basketball pride is in good hands.

  1. Kobe gets a lot of love from Droppin already. Time to spread the wealth. Plus, the KD shot almost looks like a compression – tight fit jersey. You know how the people love to search for tight jerseys 🙂
