China’s Nike Vapor basketball uniform with AeroSwift technology focuses on a vivid interpretation of the country’s characteristic red. More than just the color of the nation’s flag, the powerful hue symbolizes happiness, luck, power and joy within the Chinese culture. On the home jersey and short, it debuts in comet, crimson and bright red, flowing from lighter on top to darker on bottom, with gestural lines that cascade down the jersey’s side and around the front of the shorts. Yellow — a Chinese symbol of freedom, bravery and luck — trims each piece and distinguishes the country name, player number, the Swoosh and star that sits on the back of the jersey, between the shoulder blades. The jersey’s font takes inspiration from Chinese art, architecture and design. In particular, it features a decorative stroke reminiscent of detailing on the famed terracotta soldiers.

China away uniforms are white, with the same technology and details as the home uniform.
