The San Antonio Spurs unveiled today the Nike Association Edition and Icon Edition uniforms that will be worn by the Silver and Black during the 2017-18 NBA season. The classic white Association Edition and black Icon Edition jersey designs maintain San Antonio’s traditional look, featuring the team name centered by the iconic Spurs logo arched across the chest, with the player numbers just below and the Nike Swoosh on the right breast. The uniforms include contrasting side panels with silver and white trim on the jersey tops and accompanying shorts.
In the first season of its new partnership with the NBA, Nike engineered four primary jerseys for each franchise, using over two-and-a-half decades of research and development with basketball players at all levels to create top performance gear that focuses on the weight, fit and construction of the uniforms. The Alpha Yarns-and-recycled polyester jerseys each contain materials from approximately 20 recycled PET bottles and wick moisture 30 percent faster than current league uniforms, while improved designs around the armhole, neck and side seams allow for ease of player movement.
The Icon Edition uniforms will be debuted during the Spurs preseason game at Sacramento on Oct. 2, and the Association Edition jerseys will make their first appearance when San Antonio hosts the Kings on Oct. 6. Association and Icon Edition uniforms will be worn throughout the season, doing away with traditional home-and-away jerseys and paying homage to the league and the Spurs franchise, respectively. Two of additional uniforms will be revealed at a later date.
