Chicago high schools get custom jerseys designed by Just Don
Some Chicago High School basketball players got a first look at new uniforms over the weekend at a special party hosted by Jordan Brand.
Jordan Brand teamed up with sports apparel company Just Don to release six new jerseys for high schools in the Chicago area. Each school is sponsored by Jordan Brand and the jerseys have a classic Chicago touch.
The jerseys are designed after the 1984-85 classic Chicago Bulls jerseys that feature the cursive font on the front:
Schools that participated in the rebranding are Bolingbrook, De La Salle, Fenwick, Hillcrest, Marian Catholic and Morgan Park. Each school received a new jersey, shorts, jackets and shooting shorts at the event hosted at the Zhou Brothers Art Gallery located in Chicago’s Bridgeport neighborhood.
Jordan Brand showed off the new jerseys in glass cases, which were on display for guests in attendance.
In addition to the jersey unveiling, Jordan Brand also debuted its newest commercial titled “Class of XXXI” featuring Chicago’s Jimmy Butler and Jabari Parker. Other Jordan Brand athletes, such as Ray Allen, Russell Westbrook and Carmelo Anthony are also featured.
While the athletes have their trophy cases filled, the ending leaves one case with a blank frame as it awaits the next great athlete.
