LA Lakers New Retro Jerseys For Upcoming Season Have Apparently Leaked Online
It appears that the Los Angeles Lakers retro jerseys which were set to be unveiled on July 30th have leaked online. Apparently someone over at Fanatics jumped the gun and posted an image of LeBron wearing the unreleased jerseys on their website.
Several official merchandise items showing LeBron James wearing the white Lakers uniform (featuring a design we’d never seen before) appeared on eBay; those items were quickly removed. Now yesterday even more items popped up on an online shop showing both the white and gold uniforms; an additional item was found giving enough clues to apply the same template to the purple.
he Lakers uniforms will see noticeable changes for 2018-19, side stripes are removed from the jerseys and shorts, drop shadows return to player numbers after a nearly 20-year absence, the trim and collar has been updated – now with an additional line, the number font is completely changed and its colour switches to gold on the purple jerseys and purple on the golds (previously it was white for both of these uniforms).
Twitter user Conrad Burry provided several mockups of what the new retro jerseys should look like after viewing the leaked images.
