Nike Unveils Team USA ‘Dream Team’ Uniforms & Varsity Jacket

Tuesday, February 21st, 2012


Combining Nike’s lightest, most technologically advanced textiles with iconic graphics, the Nike Hyper Elite Basketball Uniform helps boost players’ performance and communicates the pride of USA Basketball. The innovation begins with Nike Aerographics, an engineered fabric that is a passive cooling solution allowing greater design and graphic flexibility while creating mesh areas in a garment without adding seams.

The jacket has its traditional wool body and leather sleeves, but the detailing is where this piece comes into it’s own. Nike Sportswear Graphic Design Director Russell Stott and his team put three chenille patches on the left-side sleeve, which show the average margin of victory (43.8 points), an XXV reference because Barcelona was the 25th games in sporting history, the locations the team will travel to this year and the USAB logo.
