This past Friday, the NBA and Adidas revealed the jerseys and socks to be worn for the league’s Christmas Day schedule, once again taking a distinctive and stylish approach to spotlight one of the league’s biggest days of the year.
Moving away from the sleeves and player nicknames of the past. The NBA has gone back to sleeveless tops, and has adopted a classic feel with their names in script font.
Press release from the NBA:
“Designed as part of the Adidas NBA Season’s Greetings Collection, the uniforms continue the tradition of introducing new and unique elements each season. This year’s uniforms incorporate primary team colors and cream tones, while player names and numbers are showcased in holiday-style script and detailed with woven rows of stitching. A scarlet NBA seal is also displayed on the back of the jersey as a nod to holiday greeting cards.
“The socks, Stance’s contribution to the on-court Christmas Day look, mirror the uniform’s design and feature classic holiday colors, winter-inspired imagery and pay homage to holiday sweaters.”
