The Toronto Raptors’ highly-anticipated City Edition uniform is here, and it’s a tribute to all things Toronto.
Designed in collaboration with OVO, the jersey features visual depictions of everything that makes this city so great.
The classically-styled jerseys have the same black and gold colourway that we know and love, but with key design features that showcase the uniqueness of Toronto.
One of the highlights is an “embossed pattern of Toronto’s six boroughs,” including East York, Etobicoke, North York, Old Toronto, Scarborough, and York, according to Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment (MLSE).
The uniforms also celebrate Toronto’s diversity, with the word “North” translated into some of the spoken languages in our city, of which there are over 200.
Also featured is a black and gold “Welcome Toronto” embellishment, which is the tagline of the Raptors x OVO initiative “to celebrate the future of art, culture and basketball in Canada.”
The words are “meant to be a welcome to those who visit while being a source of pride for all who call Toronto home,” according to MLSE.
You can rock the new Raptors City Edition look too. The uniforms are now for sale at Real Sports.
This thoughtfully-designed uniform may go down as one of the most iconic of all time, so consider it your excuse to stock up on new gear for yourself (or for the Raptors fan on your holiday gift list).
