Nuggets unveil ‘Whitegold’ uniforms, and they’re pretty awesome

The Nuggets unwisely removed their pick-axe logo from center court.

But they’ve featured it in what might be favorite new uniform of the season.

Nuggets release:

The Denver Nuggets will introduce a “WHITEGOLD” alternate uniform for the 2015-16 NBA 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.

I love how clean these are, the logos and striping popping against the white background. I can even overlook the sleeves.

But as much as I like these, I can’t help but think they could’ve been even better with the typical yellow incorporated into the pick-axe logo and the shorts striping – especially if it were a metallic yellow to match the metallic blue.

Still, all in all, these get an ‘A’ from me.
