Nike has unveiled its latest line of NBA jerseys, which draw inspiration from the city each of the league's 30 franchises is based in. The City Edition uniforms will make their debut in January and will be worn at select games throughout the remainder of the season. According to Sneaker News, Nike will also release a series of shoes that echo the color schemes of the City Edition jerseys.
While there are a few duds among the new lineup of apparel (the drab grey mess of the San Antonio Spurs' jersey and the blank slate of the Memphis Grizzlies' uniform), the design of the new Chicago Bulls jersey is one of the sharpest of the bunch. The white top is inspired by the iconic Chicago flag, sporting a retro city and number treatment as well as four six-pointed stars that line the right side of the uniform. The inclusion of the phrase "sweet home" at the bottom is a little cheesy, but it's certainly preferable to a "Windy City" or "Second City" reference.
The Bulls will wear the City Edition jerseys for the first time when the team faces off against the Los Angeles Lakers at the United Center on January 26. Fans will be able to purchase the jerseys shortly after they debut on the court—the Madhouse Team Store at the United Center is already accepting pre-orders.
