There’s a trend in the NBA right now. Teams are re-designing left and right, and the Nuggets are no exception. Denver has introduced a “WHITEGOLD” alternate for this upcoming season, which they will wear in 6 select games. The uniform was created by adidas and stands as the Nuggets official “Pride” jersey. Check out the pictures above of Kenneth Faried and Danilo Gallinari rocking them.
Here’s more info straight from the team:
A new bold logo taking elements from the Nuggets secondary “pick axe” logo is featured prominently across the chest of the jersey. This alternate logo is embroidered in the team’s standard navy coloring used on its other uniforms and introduces a metallic light blue color that is used as an accent throughout the WHITEGOLD uniform.
The player numbers will be filled with white coloring and bordered with navy stitching. The player names will also feature navy stitching, with all fonts used on the jersey matching the new western inspired font featured on the Nuggets’ updated primary uniforms and their new court design.
More subtle design cues include a winterized “Nuggets” logo just below the waistband on the back of the shorts, taken from the navy blue alternate uniforms worn by the team from 2008-2012. The new metallic light blue is added in rotation with navy and white to comprise the striping along the side of the shorts, a design element borrowed from the Nuggets iconic “Skyline” uniforms. The shorts are finished with a navy tonal version of the secondary “pick axe” logo along the lower left front above the knee.
The new “WHITEGOLD” uniform will be worn at 6 home games during the 2015-16 NBA season. These 6 games will occur over 2 separate “WHITEGOLD” takeover weeks where the Nuggets will host 3 consecutive home games. These six games will also be the first time the Nuggets have worn a sleeved jersey in an NBA game.
Authentic jerseys are available for order now, with adidas Swingman versions of the “WHITEGOLD” jerseys arriving at Altitude Authentics in late November.
