Nike is looking to dress college basketball teams from head to toe.
The athletic giant is introducing Nike Pro Combat, a new line of base layer apparel, uniforms and customized footwear. With this new collection, the company will outfit Duke University, Gonzaga University, The University of Memphis, Michigan State University and University of Oregon.
“College basketball is a tremendously quick and physical game, and Nike is committed to giving student athletes the best gear for battle,” said Todd Van Horne, creative director of Nike Sport Apparel and Innovation in a statement. “Nike Pro Combat reflects the evolution of the game and provides our college teams with quality base layer apparel they need for their tournament runs in March.”
For the footwear, Nike allowed members from each of the five teams to have control over customizing their own kicks. By working closely with NikeID designers, they created the Nike Hyperdunk, featuring Flywire with strong, thin nylon fibers to support the foot. Fans of each school can replicate their favorite team’s design at NikeID.com.
