McDonalds gets Shiny

The excitement of March Madness continues, which means contests and events non stop. This excitement isn’t completely focused on the college athletes. During this crazy basketball phenomenon, high school all-stars get a little love as well during the McDonalds All-Star West vs. East Game. This year the boys played on April 2nd in Chicago and sported some interesting choices. Not a major surprise that Adidas got the chance to design these outfits.

Here are some looks at what the two sides would be wearing. The camo didn’t make it to tip off but the players got to sport a very sleek black uni.

Here is the look of the uniforms that were worn throughout the All Star game. As you can see, these jerseys are a bit of juxtaposition of each other as they are purely opposite of orange and black for each jersey. Although it may give a little bit of an orange jumpsuit vibe, it still has a uniformed, unique look.

This may be because of the shiny, metallic like numbers that the jerseys sported. It gave the jerseys a different look and really made the numbers stand out with all the lights in the gym. The numbers had a very iridescent look and on the television screen really shown through everything on the court.

Another interesting addition to these jerseys were the texture to the shorts and shoulders. There was a metallic, crackled type of look on the shorts as well as on the upper shoulder area. This gave the shorts a very unexpected look, because from the waist up the uniforms seem some what simplistic. Also, on the black unis, the outlining of the neon orange around the shorts really lets the color pop out as well as the texture on the shorts.
