Nike has officially unveiled the new WNBA uniforms for the upcoming season, which the pre-season tips off on May 6th.
To create a special look for the WNBA, Nike focused on amplifying each teams’ primary and secondary colors through a tonal application of color that moves from the front of the uniform to back, intended to create the effect of an athlete in motion. A wing-like design on the back of the jersey features sharp angles that imply power and speed.
In line with the new basketball uniform naming convention announced by Nike and the NBA last year, the WNBA introduces an Icon Edition and Statement Edition silhouette. The Icon Edition uses the team’s primary color to represent the rich heritage and iconic identity that exists within each franchise. The Statement Edition highlights the team’s secondary color and sets the tone for big games or rivalries.
Preseason WNBA games tip-off May 6th and the regular season begins May 18th. That weekend, as part of WNBA All Day’s six-game schedule, all teams will take the court in these uniforms to celebrate the start of the league’s 22nd season.
