It remains to be seen how the University of Miami men’s and women’s basketball teams fare in the post-season, but one thing is for sure – they’ll look fashionable, win or lose.
UM is one of nine schools that got special customized post-season uniforms from adidas. The others are: Arizona State, Indiana, Kansas, Louisville, Mississippi State, North Carolina State, Nebraska and Texas A&M.
The “Create Yours” uniform collection features design elements that are specific to Miami, and the men’s team will unveil it Wednesday at noon for the Canes’ Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament opener against Syracuse at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y.
The collection features mesh fabric, and French terrycloth wipe zones for the games’ sweatiest moments. Trim on the inside of the jersey neck reads “#itsallabouttheu” and the shorts have a print meant to represent a hurricane.
Players will wear Dame 3 sneakers with a midsole design inspired by the Doppler radar used to track incoming hurricanes.
