Louisville men’s basketball unveiled a new throwback uniform for the upcoming season. The uniform is honoring the 1986 National Championship team. It features the dunking Cardinal on the shorts.
Honoring the 1986 National Champions, these throwbacks will be worn during the 21-22 season & debut at #LouisvilleLive 😍— Louisville Basketball (@LouisvilleMBB) September 9, 2021
See ‘em first on Sept. 18 👉 https://t.co/V7qQ5lU5hj pic.twitter.com/t7Gs7H04VB
For now, it appears the uniforms will only be in the home white color.
It’s a very sleek design that harkens back to simple, but beautiful uniform designs of yesteryear. Of course, the dunking cardinal just makes this uniform one of the absolute best.
What’s interesting is that these uniforms will make their debut on September 18th at Louisville Live inside Churchill Downs. This is likely because special guests for the event will be members of the 1986 title team. This should be a cool way to honor them and, let’s be honest, these uniforms are elegant. So, if you want to see these wonderful uniforms, head out to Louisville Live on September 18th.
