Five of the 12 WNBA teams have released 2023 “Rebel Edition” alternate uniforms today. While the category name is embarrassing (anytime a big corporation claims to be a “rebel,” you know they’re even more full of shit that usual), some of the designs aren’t bad. Let’s go one team at a time:
I’m generally a fan of diagonal stripes on basketball uniforms. It would be nice to see how the jersey stripes align with the shorts stripes on a human being, but the only player photos they’ve provided don’t really show that. Sigh. Additional info here.
Ugh — I will never understand why the same company needs two ads on the front of the same jersey. Additional info here.
No additional info available yet on this one, but I’ll add a link once the team provides an unveiling page.
New York Liberty
My favorite design of the bunch. Additional info here.
Honor the moments, the muses, and the movements that got us here. Through their work, we are given strength to move forward.
Own your legacy with our 2023 Nike Rebel Edition!
