On April 3, 2013, some of the best high school basketball players will convene in Chicago to showcase their talents in the 36th Annual McDonald’s All American Game. This will be the perfect chance for the up-and-coming ballers to take the stage on in front of a national audience, as they prepare to move on to college hoops. It will also be the perfect opportunity for adidas to showcase its wild adizero short sleeve basketball uniform system, which the brand unveiled for the NBA’s Golden State Warriors earlier this week.
“The McDonald’s All American Game showcases the highest level of high school basketball talent in America,” said Jeff Robbins, adidas Basketball Sports Marketing. “The adizero short sleeve uniform system unites ultimate performance and unique style, and there is no better opportunity for adidas to bring true innovation and cutting edge design to the leaders on the courts and in the high school hallways.”
Each McDonald’s All American player will suit up in the innovative uniforms designed to improve performance in all aspects of the word. Constructed from 60 percent recycled material, the adizero uniform system features quick drying Revolution 30 technology that is already present in today’s NBA uniforms. The main feature of the jerseys is definitely the 360-degree stretch fabric connecting the sleeves to the shirt. The unique design is put in place to allow free range of motion for the arms and shoulders, while still being breathable enough to keep players confortable on the hardwood.
Along with the adizero short sleeve uniforms, players will wear a combination of adidas basketball footwear and adidas Team Speed basketball socks to complete the look.
