New Syracuse Basketball Uniforms?

Recommended Posts

It was posted on UniWatch that there are some new Syracuse basketball shorts floating around on eastbay. I am at work all day and the eastbay website is blocked here. Is there anyone out there willing to post pictures of these shorts on here for me and everyone to see? The links are found on today's blog at www.uniwatchblog.com

Thanks!

Looks like Nike went a little DOT crazy ...

(Sorry for the small images)

UCONN, Gonzaga, Georgetown too?:

Could just be a line of fashion shorts...some of you guys take speculation way too far :lol: However, I do like those Syracuse shorts, and the Gonzaga ones are nice as well...

Those Georgetown shorts are exactly the same as they've been wearing all year except for the dot pattern on the sides. I'm guessing this is to promote some new product for Nike (new uniform material,new Pro Combat products, new shoe techology, etc.). I'd expect to start seeing these during the conference tournaments and the NCAA tournament.

Bumping this, because I can confirm that Syracuse is indeed breaking out new uniforms tonight (through one of the student section's leaders and a meeting he had with the athletic dept.). No idea what the jerseys look like, however.

Paying tribute to the rich history of Syracuse basketball, Nike designers worked with the university to create a distinctive look for the Orange. Inspired in part by the iconic Carrier Dome, the Syracuse jerseys feature a rendition of the venue where some of the programs most memorable games have taken place.

The Syracuse Hall of Languages, one of the oldest buildings on campus, as well as the Syracuse Carnegie Library is featured in the design of the new jerseys. The establishment date of the university, 1870, helps complete the design.

Syracuse’s new uniforms incorporate several Nike innovations that were originally introduced in Beijing. The Hyper Elite uniforms take advantage of Nike Aerographics - an engineered mesh providing zoned cooling that reduces up to half the yarn, making the uniforms more lightweight and breathable.

Nike made specific adjustments to the jersey, eliminating 13 inches of material, while the use of Dri-FIT woven fabric in the short reduced its weight to make it Nike’s lightest ever.

Blech. I can't get over the blue waistband.

Sweet. Would've liked to see the silver numbers go, but these are an improvement I think. Very duke-ish. Will probably get me one of 'em. Only question is who the hell is that posing?

They're in the new home uniforms right now against UConn. I have to say, I've done a 180° on the belt/waistband thing. I can't quite put my finger on it, but I think I like the way it breaks up the white. My big beef at this point is the missed opportunity to replace the reflector tape numbers.

UConn is wearing new unis too.

I have never gotten an answer to this question. Does anybody no why Nike has decided to throw the silver/gray into everyone's color scheme? I think it really ruins anything good that they do happen to come up with.

You haven't gotten an answer because there is no reason. It's stupid.

The 'Cuse uni's look good, lose the blue waistband, and it's great looking...

The silver doesn't bother me that much, not nearly as much as the waist...

I forget his name, but I actually used to work with that guy. I did a total double take as I scrolled through. I think he said he used to play basketball for U of Portland. I worked with him in Portland, btw, which means he is close to the NIKE campus.

I feel like a total stalker/creeper for posting that, but its not everyday you realize you know a Nike model . . . . weird.

Pretty cool behind the scenes video, where we learn a couple things:

-the collar logo is supposed to represent their national championship?

-get a clear vector image of the back graphic (actually looks pretty sweet)

-they put 4 colored panels on the shorts (orange, blue, white, silver) on each side for the number "44" which is an iconic 'Cuse number

He's probably referring to Nike's "Elite School" program, in which the shield is given a silver outline, and the swoosh outlined in silver if the team Wins a national title, or makes it to the final four. I believe Villanova was added to the list after reaching last year's Final Four.

I think those shorts are super cool with the holes/mesh...

Here's the back of UConn's jersey for those who haven't seen:

I like it, especially the old, more detailed, husky head.

According to the UK Article that had that image, 8 schools will debut the Nike Hyper Elite, apparently that list includes Duke, who was already wearing them. In addition, Syracuse, Duke, UConn, Georgetown, Gonzaga, (according to image in the original post), and Texas so far. I believe Michigan State is included in this mix as well as the eigth team...

According to Paul Lukas, St. John's and Miami are also on the list. Miami's can be seen here...Miami

UCONN art is sick! I love the incorporation of their title years '99 and '04. Sweet job.

Anyone wonder if we'll ever see this type of activity or design in the NBA?
