Knicks will debut new city jersey in home game vs Lakers

The New York Knicks, along with the other 29 NBA teams, have unveiled the new City Edition uniform for the 2021-22 season.

Bronx native Kemba Walker starred in the unveiling video narrated by Knicks legend Allan Houston.

Kith founder Ronnie Feig designed the new Knicks city jersey based on a “mixtape” theme and an ode to the biggest Knicks moments over the last 75 years.

The Jersey features the Knicks’ signature black and orange piping over a black base. Change the black base with blue and it’s eerily reminiscent of the Knicks road jerseys in the late 90s. The new city edition jersey comes with checkered side panels and the Nike NYC logo.

The most interesting details are carried on the shorts. The waistband has the retired Knicks numbers with the Global logo as the central feature on the buckle.

A Madison Square Garden logo on each leg is a visual homage to the most famous arena, the home of the Knicks and a witness to some of the biggest moments in franchise history.
