Adidas, the official on-court apparel provider for the NBA, just unveiled the uniforms and apparel for the highly-anticipated 62nd NBA All-Star Game at the Toyota Center in Houston, TX on February 17th.
This year's All-Star Game uniforms take inspiration from Houston’s rich aeronautical history. The uniforms’ eye-catching impact camo pattern evokes the world’s fastest fleet of aircraft with the classic silhouette of a basketball net. The adidas 2013 NBA All-Star uniforms feature specially-engineered mesh to provide maximum mobility and breathability. The West (red) and East (royal blue) uniforms also feature the adidas iconic three-stripe design flanking the side of both the jersey and shorts. The uniform lettering and numbers are inspired by the stenciled style on jet planes. Players will take to the court in black-and-white aviator-style NBA All-Star warm-ups featuring metal zippers made with a similar anodized finish that is used on airplanes.
This year, each player’s jacket will be customized to represent individual career accomplishments, including NBA All-Star Game appearances and All-Star MVP awards, NBA titles, in addition to season awards including MVP, Rookie of the Year, Defensive Player of the Year and Scoring Championships.
“The NBA All-Star Game is an exciting time to unite adidas’ line of performance and style products to celebrate the court-to-street style that runs through basketball culture around the world. 2013 marks adidas’ sixth season designing NBA All-Star uniforms and every year we look forward to introducing performance innovations that help the best basketball players in the world lift off and take their games to the next level in front of a global audience” said Lawrence Norman, adidas VP, Global Basketball.
Replica 2013 NBA All-Star jerseys will be available at retail with a full range of NBA All-Star apparel from adidas including men’s and women’s T-shirts, track jackets and headwear.
