Earlier in July, it was revealed that the 2017–18 NBA season would kick off with brand new uniforms, most notably, the jerseys will be featuring a variety of different advertisements for the very first time. The beginning of the upcoming season will also mark the first time that Nike is designing the NBA uniforms, with the Charlotte Hornets’ new uniforms designed by Jordan Brand. One thing that distinguishes their jerseys from the rest is that it will feature the Jordan “Jumpman” branding. Apart from being busy with this uniform overhaul, it seems that Jordan Brand has also outfitted the Argentina national basketball team with Air Jordan 31 PE pairs.
The Argentina national basketball team is recognized as one of the most determined basketball teams in the world. Their level of performance and the team spirit they display in every game are known for being exemplary. During the 2002 FIBA World Championship, Argentina managed to defeat USA, becoming an internationally renowned team. Two years later in the 2004 Summer Olympics that took place in Athens, Greece, the Argentina national basketball team earned the Gold Medal. After designing the Charlotte Hornets’ new uniforms, it turns out that Jordan Brand has also partnered with the Confederación Argentina de Básquetbol (CABB) to design the official CABB uniforms.
The Air Jordan 31 PE pairs that these members of the Argentina national basketball team can be seen wearing in the above photo were a gift from Jordan Brand. The sneakers appear to be sporting the color scheme of the Argentinian flag and the team’s uniforms. Thus, the uppers of this PE iteration are dressed up in a combination of University Blue and White. The matching uniforms are predominantly clean white, while University Blue can be spotted over the accents, branding, lettering and numbers. The Argentina national basketball team will be the first team outside the NBA to wear uniforms designed and sponsored by Jordan Brand.
Of course, the Air Jordan 31 PE pairs gifted to the Argentina national basketball team will not be arriving at retailers anywhere. However, it has been reported that it has been reported that these brand new official CABB uniforms will actually hit the shelves at stores in Argentina in August 9th, 2017.
