Louisville cardinals basketball adidas new uniform - all

What you see here are new uniforms by Adidas for the Louisville basketball team for the 2012-2013 season. Despite changing uniforms for the playoffs last year, having folks assume those were the unis for the following year we are about to begin, a new set has been “leaked.”

Kenny Klein, Senior Associate Athletic Director for Media Relations/SID at the University of Louisville, tweeted the following picture, telling followers that the players were filming promos to be shown on the screens at the arena.

Center Gorgui Dieng models his number 10

Pretty standard, clean, simple design. The shoulder piping is way more traditional, with a slight bout of blocky goofiness around the collar. The number one in the number font is exceptionally pointy, but overall not too bad.

But, then Senior guard Peyton Siva posted a full uniform look on his Instagram, showing the shorts.

Siva models his number 3 in his instagram post.

Hard to fully make out all of the shapes, but there are almost certainly curved side panels with textured gradient red on one side, black on the other. Interesting.

For reference, here are the uniforms the Cardinals wore late last year.

Last year’s uniforms, complete with strange disconnected red (?) shoulder stripes.

Do you like the look? 313 of his followers do. Is this an upgrade?

    Hate the pants, love the jersey.

    That is unfortunate. I guess that ugly gradient is the trend for this season. Terrible.

    Gradients are so wack. The shirt looks okay, but the collar is, once again, adidasly awkward. The shorts look like they have been designed by the cast of Jersey Shore. Zubazz pants for warmups, I guess? Mandatory box cuts and mullets for team members? Brrrrrrrr….

    The shorts look a bit weird to me. I’m all right with the jersey, though.
