The 2019-20 Detroit Pistons City Edition uniform is an evolution of last season’s black and gray version and ties into the culture of Detroit while offering Pistons fans a limited-edition jersey option at retail. Through collaboration with the NBA and Nike, the Pistons created this uniform based on inspiration from both the automotive culture – Motor City across the front, bold highway-like striping with a carbon fiber texture, bold muscle car coloring – and also the hard-nosed mentality of the city. The uniform, which has a red base color with blue accents and embellishments, will be accompanied on the court with special-edition warm-up apparel. The Pistons last used a red alternative uniform back in 2006-07.
Nike City Edition uniforms are designed to honor basketball fans in each NBA city who bring energy and passion to the court every night while cheering on their favorite teams.
