adidas unveiled on Thursday the new eye-catching adizero uniform system for the University of Louisville men’s and women’s basketball programs.
The Cardinals’ men’s and women’s teams will suit up in the adizero uniform systems beginning with their respective BIG EAST Tournaments. The women’s tournament runs from March 8-12 in Hartford, Conn., while the men will play from March 12-16 in New York City.
The uniforms feature adidas’ most advanced uniform technologies, designed to make an impact on the court, and a limited-edition camouflage print. The Cardinal men were selected as one of three programs to wear the new short-sleeved technology.
“The adizero uniform system gives players the leading performance technology with a distinctive on-court style,” said Chris McGuire, adidas Director of Sports Marketing. "These uniforms celebrate the excitement of the game, letting players stand out during college basketball’s biggest moments. Louisville will wear the most innovative basketball uniforms and footwear to help them elevate their game during the most important time of the year.”
The uniforms feature adidas’ quick drying Revolution 30 technology, found in current NBA uniforms and ClimaCool zones, which move heat and moisture away from the body to keep the jersey light and dry during heavy sweating. The super-lightweight woven short is designed for improved breathability and a closer, more comfortable fit with compression base layers.
The uniform’s limited-edition design and coloring is created for this season’s conference and NCAA tournaments. The impact camo pattern is designed to let players stand out on college basketball’s biggest stage, while a team patch on the back neck of the jersey features the line “Cards Forever” to pay homage to Louisville pride and team spirit.
