ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — I am not sure if WHITEGOLD is actually a word, but the Denver Nuggets have coined it for their new alternate uniforms, which look pretty awesome. According to Nuggets.com, they’ll wear the new uniforms six times this season…
The new uniform created by adidas acts as the Nuggets official “Pride” jersey designation by the NBA, and looks to incorporate the spirit of Denver and the Rocky Mountains into a unique new style to the Nuggets.
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.
