Several of the nation’s top high school ballers, including the nation's No. 1-ranked Andrew Wiggins (Huntington Prep, W.Va.) and Duke commit Jabari Parker (Simeon, Ill.) will soon suit up in cutting edge adidas adizero basketball uniforms when they hit the court for the 36th annual McDonald’s All American Games, taking place in Chicago’s United Center on April 3.

The eco-conscious uniforms are made using 60 percent recycled materials. According to adidas, the uniforms are designed to enhance mobility, a expectation notable in the jersey, which features 360-degree stretch fabric to give players better free range of motion around their arms and shoulders.

The uniform integrates what the brand calls Revolution 30, fast-drying fabric that helps keep players dry. The technology is also used in NBA uniforms. The basketball short is made of lightweight woven fabric to provide maximum ventilation.

The print, dubbed “impact camo”, is a play on traditional camouflage. East players will suit up in black uniforms and West players will wear red unis. Player names and numbers will be stitched in a chrome finish, a design detail that symbolizes the glow from the championship trophy.
