Spain 2016 Nike Vapor Basketball Uniforms

SPAIN-2016-NIKE-VAPOR-BASKETBALL-UNIFORMS

As the Spanish National Basketball Team prepares for the important competition this summer in Río, the Spain Nike Vapor basketball uniform with AeroSwift technology updates the country’s red and gold with a vivid spectrum of related shades. The front of the home jersey and shorts presents gem red, which deepens to crimson at the back of the uniform and lightens to fire-red as it moves upward. To showcase a player's speed, gestural gold lines cascades down the jersey’s side and around the front of the shorts. The jersey’s font takes inspiration from Spanish culture and architecture.

"In the basketball National Team, we have always given importance to the small details that drive excellent performance," says Sergio Scariolo, coach of the Spain National Team. "Being able to rely on excellent kits that include all the latest technologies, like the one Nike will provide us, is a detail of great importance. We hope to see again these kits worn by our great players and win a medal at the podium this summer.”

Spain away uniforms are white, with the same technology and details as the home uniform. A blue uniform that fades from obsidian to sky blue, with gold details, adds a third game-time option.
