“The ill-fitting colored cotton T-shirt. So 1990. So history.
When Nike entered the NCAA basketball world for the 1989-1990 season with three Division I schools, there wasn’t a lot of style flourishing in uniform design. Shorten the shorts, mesh the jerseys and if you want a base layer, dial up a nice oversized Hanes cotton T-shirt. Those looks wouldn’t last.”
We loved this look back at how Nike college basketball uniforms have evolved over the years into the sleek and stylized versions of today, complete with technology-driven high performance materials. As technology and fashion continue to rapidly change, today’s uniforms will become tomorrow’s throwback looks. At College Vault, we can’t wait to see what the future holds, but our favorite looks will always be vintage.
