On Wednesday, the Bulls revealed their new “Icon” and “Association” uniforms, which are part of the new rollout of league uniforms designed by Nike and announced the red unis will serve as their primary home uniform during the upcoming 2017-18 season, while players will rock the white version on the road.

A few weeks ago the National Basketball Association announced it is eliminating the old apparel designations starting with the 2017-18 season, when Nike becomes the official outfitter.  The host team will pick which of its uniforms will be worn for each game and the visitors will select one of the contrasting ones from their collection. Previously, white uniforms were the default for home teams.

The team’s release showcased Dwyane Wade‘s No. 3 jersey in a locker, which don’t stray far at all from previous versions of the Bulls threads but have a sleek new feel to them.

*NOTE:  There will be a leather tab with a shadow of the Larry O’Brien trophy and the number six on the neck area; representing the two 3-peats in the 90’s.

 

While other clubs like the Indiana Pacers and Cleveland Cavaliers who used the NBA’s new global apparel partnership with Nike as an opportunity for a redesign, Chicago decided to maintain its classic look.

The Bulls even put the new garb on the iconic Michael Jordan statue outside United Center.
