Nike has taken their City Edition line to a new level in their second season clothing the NBA. Whether it's the Prince-inspired Purple Rain Timberwolves garb, the Miami Vice theme for the Heat, or Biggie's Coogi style for the Nets, they're decking the best players in the world out in some truly fresh alternates. After a slow reveal starting Nov. 1, Friday marks the day when all 30 City Edition threads are out.
Here's Nike's explanation of the line:
The approach was straight-forward: take features of a team’s city and incorporate them into the uniform’s design. But the inspirations were far from simple. Architecture, landmarks, famous figures and mottos became creative backdrops for the jerseys, creating a piece of fan culture that’s wholly loyal to communities across the League.
This year, City Edition uniforms are back, and each jersey offers more details that provide a deeper look at a team’s relationship with its city. Some elements are familiar. Others are new. One point that hasn’t changed: City Edition uniforms come straight from the source — the fans who form the cultures of their zip codes.
