The Nike ‘City’ Uniforms Might Be a Mess, But They Are Iconic
Nike released their "City Edition" versions of team uniforms this week.
On Wednesday, Nike released the “City Edition” versions of each team’s uniforms. It is the fourth addition to the uni rotation, including Association, Icon, and Statement jerseys. The idea behind the “City Edition” jersey is that each represents the team’s locale, including architecture, history or anything else that might be reminiscent of the team’s hometown. According to The Ringer, a few of the jerseys are a hit. Others are a total miss.
Milwaukee did great, both with the colors and the design.

The Brooklyn Nets is pretty simple, maybe a little too simple, but you can see the resemblance to the Brooklyn Bridge.

The Detroit ones are just bad, especially because the Pistons’ main colors are much brighter than the navy and grey they chose.

Philadelphia’s is classy, but the font really ruins it.

And the D.C. jersey is just incredibly underwhelming.
