Adidas unveils “iced out” college basketball uniforms for eight teams

Friday November 13th, 2015

Adidas has unveiled a collection of monochrome black and white uniforms to welcome the start of the 2015–2016 college basketball season, a new set of uniforms that the company has dubbed “iced out” due to the reflective finish that illuminates when hit with a camera flash.

The uniforms for Arizona StateIndiana, Texas A&MKansasLouisville, Miami, Nebraska and UCLA feature a diamond pattern—inspired by basketball nets, says Adidas—with a reflective finish running along the sides of the jersey top and shorts.

The shorts include an oversized team logo, and Adidas has created a collection with warm-ups and a short-sleeved hoodie finished in the same reflective fabric and basketball net print.

Expect to see the on-court debut of the new look during early-season tournaments.
