NBA AND ADIDAS UNVEIL 2015 ALL-STAR GAME FASHIONS

The 64th NBA All-Star Game will tip-off on February 15th in New York City, and adidas has revealed the 2015 player uniforms to coincide with the festivities. All-Star apparel is often created as a nod to the host city, and this year’s Big Apple styles feature a fashionable flair. The overall design aesthetic is sleek and simple and a sharp contrast to many of the All-Star looks that we’ve seen in the past. adidas described the inspiration behind the new hardwood fashions:

The uniforms pay tribute to New York City’s basketball history and unique boroughs while personifying the city’s legacy as the mecca of sports, music and fashion. The clean, timeless design is inspired by classic sports uniforms and barnstorming basketball teams from the early 20th century.

For the first-time in an NBA All-Star Game, player first and last names are featured on the back of the jersey. The new gear features a muted black, white and grey color palette with pops of red and blue. The jerseys also include a side panel of five stars, each meant to represent the city’s five boroughs:

  • Queens: a pattern inspired by the stainless steel orbit rings of the borough’s iconic Unisphere that was built for the 1964 World’s Fair at Flushing Meadows – Corona Park
  • Staten Island: a wave pattern to signify its surrounding waters
  • Manhattan: a taxi-cab checkered pattern represents the pace and energy of the world’s most cosmopolitan city
  • The Bronx: a vinyl record pattern to pay homage to the birthplace of hip-hop and the rich musical legacy of New York City
  • Brooklyn: a brick pattern inspired by the iconic brownstone houses and buildings that make up the neighborhoods of the city’s most populous borough

The NBA All-Star jerseys will be available on NBAStore.com and NBA Store on Fifth Avenue in January, in addition to a full range of NBA All-Star apparel from Adidas. For a closer look at the special edition styles, visit here. Below is a preview:
