New Michigan Basketball uniforms

A few weeks ago, Michigan unveiled it's new basketball uniforms, made by Adidas. The major changes are structural, as the jersey is much lighter, stronger and more breathable. However, they did tweak the design a little bit, adding some striping and different angles. The shorts also have a fade effect, and up close, they reveal that the fade is done using tiny block M's. Nice touch.

Overall, I think the uniforms are an improvement. They look sharper and more modern. This is so much better than the old Nike's with the horrendous trim that looked like something a high school JV team from 1998 Elk Rapids would wear. However, I hope that they don't go with the neon green shoes (Nike calls it "volt"). I know it is the hot color in footwear right now, but it really clashes with the maize. Anyway, it is going to be a great year, and the Wolverines will be looking good.
