(Boulder-CO) The good folks at Nike were generous enough to allow me to preview quite possibly the coolest (literally) basketball uniforms ever! Nike has recently introduced the Swift System of Dress basketball uniform, which will be worn by Team USA when they compete at the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games. The new Nike designed uniform eliminates 24 centimeters of material and reduces the weight by 31 percent. The uniform also features Nike Aerographics, an engineered mesh providing zoned cooling that reduces up to half the yarn, making it more lightweight and breathable. An exclusively designed “We the People” graphic, inspired by USA’s rich history, is also integrated into the uniform.

Bring home the gold.
