The redesigned black-based look is an ode to the '84-'90 sets worn by the team back in New Jersey. Details from the team's press release:
Designed in collaboration with adidas, the new look is inspired by the Nets’ uniforms worn from 1984-1990, remixed to pay homage to the team’s current home in Brooklyn. The graphite color, a blend of the Nets' signature black and white, represents the grit and tenacity of Brooklyn and its passionate young team.
Reminiscent of the ’84-‘90 uniforms, the jerseys have a white NETS word mark across the chest and BROOKLYN down the left side. This marks the first time the team has worn both ‘Brooklyn’ and ‘Nets’ together on its jerseys.
The uniforms also feature five graphite stars on a white background, three down the side of the jersey and two down the side of the shorts, dually representing the team’s fifth season in Brooklyn, and the five decades of the franchise.
“The Brooklyn Remix uniforms represent a fusion of the past and the present,” said Brett Yormark, CEO of Brooklyn Sports & Entertainment. “By combining elements from the team’s most iconic uniforms, we’ve created a modernized look that emphasizes our heritage and defines today’s lifestyle brand.”
Steiner Sports is proud to be the official game-used memorabilia provider of the Brooklyn Nets. Be on the lookout for when you can pick up these limited uniform sets throughout the season.
