Adidas has teamed up with the Golden State Warriors to unveil new, potentially “groundbreaking” uniforms that the team will debut on February 22 against San Antonio, a game that will of course air on ESPN.
The short-sleeve jerseys, aptly named “the adizero NBA short sleeve uniform system,” are said to be 26 percent lighter than traditional NBA jerseys and come equipped with a moisture-absorbing feature. They’re also made with 60 percent recycled material, a nugget that’s sure to resonate with a bevy of environmentally conscious NBA players.
While the shorts thankfully aren’t form-fitting, they do house pinstripes. Why? According to Adidas, inspiration from the Bay Bridge, obviously. But apparently the Bay Bridge wasn’t inspiring enough to apply said pinstripes to the jersey, making for quite the awkward uniform combo, though that appears to have been the goal.
