Adidas, who is the official apparel provider for the NBA, unveiled Thursday (Jan. 16) the uniforms for the upcoming 63rd NBA All-Star Game.
Since its taking place in New Orleans next month, the company drew inspiration from the city’s rich and unique culture for the uniform’s design, featuring vibrant Mardi Gras colors and shiny brass and silver accents on a short-sleeved silhouette.
The NBA All-Star logo appears on the chest of the blue “East” and red “West” jerseys in the shape of the fleur-de-lis, the official symbol of Louisiana, with a purple “W” or green “E” cut out to identify the conference of each player.
The All-Stars will take to the court in black, white and gray varsity-style warm-ups featuring conference logo patches. Each player’s jacket will be customized to represent individual career accomplishments, such as NBA All-Star Game appearances and NBA All-Star MVP awards, NBA Championships, regular season accolades and scoring titles. Players will also wear shooting shirts that feature a colorful primal print.
NBA All-Star jerseys will be available at NBAStore.com for $80 – $130 (USA), as well as a full range of All-Star apparel.
