The NFL is not the only league to make a splash with footwear.
The NBA is bringing back the iconic shoe for a second season, as is the NBA CBA’s first-ever uniform.
But it’s the footwear that has been most talked about.
With the NBA’s first uniforms being unveiled Tuesday, the league is bringing the basketball shoe back to the NBA as a second-season product.
It was designed by Nike, which previously debuted its first- and third-generation basketball shoes in the early 1990s.
The shoes, which were first unveiled in 1996, feature a mesh material that is made of nylon and leather.
Nike said the mesh, called “Flex” in the game, is a way to keep players comfortable and prevent them from overheating.
The second-year Nike Basketball shoes were designed with an “old-school” look, said Nike Vice President of Sports & Entertainment Branding, Scott O’Connell.
“It’s an old-school basketball shoe that we’ve always had in our catalog, with the classic, classic design and the classic fit,” O’Connor said.
Nike says the new Nike Basketball uniform will feature an orange collar, a black collar with an arrow logo and a gray “F” collar that is “designed to be easy on the neck.”
Nike’s basketball shoe also features an upper that has a stretch mesh design, which allows players to “move around the floor,” O ‘Connell said.
The new Nike basketball uniform will also feature a pair of red shoes that will have a “nike swoosh” on the side of the shoe, according to Nike.
Nike is partnering with the NBA for this second season of the NBA Basketball uniform.
O’Connor said the uniform will “reflect” the brand’s “history of innovation and innovation for all athletes.”
“It will be a high-performance, high-tech uniform that’s going to look good on the court and be a lot of fun to wear,” O OConnell said, adding that the uniform is expected to be in stores for the 2018-19 season.
The next two seasons of the Nike Basketball uniforms are expected to feature a new uniform design, with more details coming later.
The uniforms also have been rebranded as the NBA-Nike Basketball Uniform.
It will be the first time in history that a basketball uniform is worn by the NBA.
“This is an iconic basketball uniform that we love,” OConnell added.
