  1. NBA Changes 2017-18

    The days of associating thick + embroidery with quality are gone. All about being thin + light.
  2. NBA Changes 2017-18

    There's a Harden one too.
  3. NBA Changes 2017-18

    Not surprising, but confirmation that the Swingman jerseys will not have cut-off arm trim like their on-court counterparts.
  4. NBA Changes 2017-18

    Nike has always been about innovation/technology first, and appearance second. If there's is a functional benefit to the athlete (liike the scapula seams, or angled cut on the shorts, etc), that takes priority over appearance to them.
  5. Cleveland Cavaliers New Uniforms

    Two best things from the Cavs reveal: The angled side panel design looks much better angled than the leak mockups where it appeared to be curved. Dazzle fabric.
  6. I just worked on some concepts for my friends at Daily Thunder, so I thought I'd share them with you all here as well: Concept 1: For this uniform set, I decided to take a guess at what I think the Thunder's uniforms could look like next season. The Association and Icon uniform have already been revealed, so I didn't change anything there. For the Athlete design, I chose to bring back the Thunder pride uniform from the last few years, sans sleeves. The new one here is the Community design, which mimics the design elements we've seen on social media and showcases "Loud City" across the chest. Concept 2: Here I wanted to take what we've seen on social media lately, and blow it out into an entire set of uniforms. The Association keeps the same wordmark from the current jersey but adds the clean lightning-inspired side panels. For the Icon jersey I separated "Oklahoma" and "City" with the number in between, something I've always wanted to see the Thunder do with their blue jerseys. The Athlete jersey uses predominately navy with a "Thunder" wordmark. And lastly, the Community uniform brings back the sunset uniform with the updated design details. Concept 3: On this concept, I wanted to try and use the Thunder's colors in combinations we've not seen before, while introducing a clean, modern design. I also wanted to explore a set with "OKC" on all jerseys except the Association jersey. The new striping and side panels follow the new Nike template, finished off with an oversized Thunder logo on the left side of the shorts. Concept 4: For this design, I really wanted to create something that felt classic and modern...and introduce lightning bolts, which honestly just feels too right for the Thunder. I swear I did this design before the Pacers unveiling last week, but at the time I thought the full circle wordmark was a unique way to deal with the long length of "Oklahoma City." The classic block numbers with a subtle drop shadow, OKC on the belt, and lightning basketball on the shorts drive home the classic modern feel. Concept 5: With this look I created something that nods to the Automobile Alley history of OKC with a classic car vibe. The Association and Icon versions retain the white and blue designs, while the Athlete design introduces a black and anthracite uniform that I think a lot of Thunder fans would get excited about. The Community design is a modern update of the sunset concept with retro striping. Concept 6: On the last concept, I wanted to create something that could stand the test of time. Classic striping, clean block numbers and wordmarks, and iconic lightning bolt shorts stripes come together to make a uniform set that I think could be an instant classic. Association and Icon once again remain white and blue respectively, while the Athlete version goes with a bold black "storm" look and the Community version reinvents the "sunset" alternate.

    I'm afraid all the community jerseys are going to have hokie nicknames on them: Buzz City, Motor City, etc. I've heard rumors of a Loud City jersey for OKC, which would fit this theme.

    They were required to wear white at home a certain number of times, while wearing alternates a lesser number of times. Now, it sounds like it will be more like soccer with primary/clash uniforms.
  9. NBA Changes 2017-18

    Did Dwight Howard leak a photo of the Hornets new jerseys? The numbers look heat pressed; nothing like the Rev30 ones. Or is this just how bad replicas look these days? Also, am I seeing things or is there some subtle pinstriping going on?
  10. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    First look at Oklahoma in the Vapor Untouchable template:
  11. 2017/18 Soccer Kits

    Fanatics and World Soccer Shop have launched the Gold Cup jerseys as well. Fanatics has free shipping, but shows an estimated ship date of July 21
  12. 2017/18 Soccer Kits

    Ditto. It physically pained me to pay that much for shipping, but I bit the bullet. I figure if it launches on other sites by Monday, and the US Soccer Store order hasn't shipped yet, I'll cancel and reorder somewhere else. Really thought they'd have red shorts because of the side stripe on the jersey being blue. Is this the first time Nike's done mismatched stripes on the aeroswift template?

    Good info @aawagner011. Just bought my jersey from ussoccerstore!

    What's the deal with the new USMNT shirt? I thought it was supposed to go on sale today, but I haven't seen it anywhere.
  15. NBA Changes 2017-18

    That Nets jersey will look eveeeen better with a giant red square ad patch on it.
