Cleveland Cavaliers New Uniforms

Again, given the design timelines, there is no way designers knew Goodyear was going to be the Cavs’ advertiser when this was designed.

 

Plus, why would they cover it up with the sword story if it was supposed to be a tire tread? There are corporate logos on the uniforms, so it can’t be because they thought it would be shameful to base a uniform design element on an advertiser’s product. Is there another motive?

 

They said the pattern is suppose to represent motion or something. It has nothing to do with Goodyear thankfully.

José Calderón's "8" is upside-down.

Compare to Channing Frye's.

Is it me or does the Cavs management really like the Tampa Bay Buccaneers? Everything they've ever used seems inspired by the Buccaneers. The Cavs logo with the sword and the flag reminds me of the Bucs and the Cavs font on the Jerseys reminds me of the Bucs font that is on the side of the Bucs jersey.

I hadn't noticed this yet... Cavs numerals have holes positioned in a way that echos the beveled wordmark. Sorry if this was already pointed out.

(I know all teams have the vent-holes in the numbers, but i haven't seen any that are laid out in a pattern of any kind.)

Goodyear makes tires, tires are mounted on car wheels, cars mostly of times are in motion, so everything is correct. ;)

The new Cavs uniforms are really growing on me. I really like how the whites look tonight. Nike paid attention to detail and really designed around the new template, as opposed to trying to force a design onto it (*couch* Rockets *cough*)

 

Lots of "players on the wrong team* potential with this Cavs team.

Now that’s a cool way to do a bevel. I still don’t like the typeface (or at least I think it could be better), but the look as a whole is growing on me.

My first thought was a nod to the 80s/90s   net-V in "CAVS"

This has the same problem as the Clippers' Statement jersey - the logo and the number don't look good stacked, or, the number should've been smaller.

 

The more I look at it, the more I am apalled at how it got through - it should've been declared unfunctional at first sight. No visual hierarchy whatsoever between those two.

 

It's all because the nike and sponsor logos leave no room for a small upper corner front jersey number like the sleeved championship version or old Nuggets jersey or late 90s Hawks and Rockets..  So now we're left with this stacked mess.

 

It's a shame, this would look nice if it were the the old giant C with the sleeves removed.  Like it or not black is an important part of their tradition since they won a title wearing it.

 

What if the C were even bigger and the number were inside the C? Or the number moved to the shorts or removed entirely? There's got to be a better way.

Do we have any indication what colour the 4th jersey will be?

Take this with a grain of salt, but:

I've heard rumors from a few different people about the fourth uniform being gray with "The Land" on it. Since it's the community-inspired uniform, it wouldn't surprise me at all if those rumors ended up being true.

So THAT'S why I couldn't remember if there was bevels on the numbers or not. There are, but it's just not that noticeable.

In game they look pretty good because it's a fairly unoffensive and safe design. I have lots of problems with their set but it certainly won't be an eyesore.

The Cavs not having a gold jersey would be a huge mistake.

Agreed. Seems logical that a gold set needs to happen. Strange that it won't... Maybe for the Christmas set?

There are going to be any Christmas specific jerseys this season.

Truth be told, they should have treated the wordmarks like the numbers. The two colors they chose for the bevel aren’t good tonal complements.

I'm more surprised the Cavs won't have a navy uniform. Navy has mostly been their go-to option on the road in the playoffs, and this will be the first time in either LeBron era in Cleveland that they will go into the playoffs without a navy option.

Just making the number smaller instead of being the same size as the logo would make all the difference.
