“Nike is the leader in basketball innovation, we are very proud to be outfitted by Nike” Jonas Kazlauskas Head Coach of the Lithuanian Men’s Senior Basketball National Team.

Nike created the uniforms with performance innovation at the forefront — considered design that benefits the athletes. The jersey is a lightweight, breathable and durable: sphere fabric with flocking at the interior neck for sweat management; articulated armholes maximize range of motion.

“I really like how lightweight the Nike uniforms are. It is a real advantage for me when I play,” says Simas Jasaitis.

The four-way stretch woven short features laser perforations and ventilation throughout the short and waistband for breathability and maximum movement.

The New Lithuanian basketball team outfit is bright and full of energy, with “Lithuania” in strong visible lettering on the front of the shirt. The aerographic design on the back of the uniform shows a literal image of the coat of arms of Lithuania. This design element has been central to the uniform since 2012.

Nike’s design team combined graphic elements from the coat of arms with some of the proud tie-dye history of the Lithuanian Basketball Federation to create a modern design element for the side panel of the uniform. The coat of arms is the Lithuanian symbol of decisive battles and victories for the country and is a great testament to the performance of the national team.

Tonal shades of gold in the green kit, and bold green and gold for the white kit are additional touches designed to bring spirit into the uniform, which represent some of the great teams of the past, while providing a modern aesthetic for the current team, as it looks to the future.

Nike has been the official supplier of the Lithuanian National Basketball Team for more than 17 years.
