76ers unveil 2021-2022 City Edition Uniforms
After numerous leaks and teasers, the Philadelphia 76ers have finally unveiled their City Edition uniform for the 2021-2022 season. This season’s uniforms are based on the 76ers’ tenure at The Spectrum, their home for over 20 seasons. The Sixers haven’t used navy blue as the primary color for their uniforms for over 50 years, so it’s a nice contrast that still remains true to their identity.
The wordmark is from the early 70s and was worn from 1971-1976. The Spectrum’s logo is featured on the side of the shorts alongside the middle of the waistband. One of the best features of this design is the rainbow pattern on the side panels of the uniform, which is taken from the Spectrum’s logo as well.
Chris Heck teased a corresponding court will be used for every home game in which these jerseys are worn. This mixture design is seen across the league for the NBA’s 75th anniversary this season. As of right now, this is the only new design that the Sixers will wear this season, with no earned edition expected in 2022.
Compared to the previous City and Statement Editions, this set is by far my favorite. I am a big fan of the mixture aspect of different eras of franchises and was anxiously waiting for the usage of the early 70s look. These uniforms will make their debut on Wednesday night against the Chicago Bulls.
