Spurs' retro-inspired streetwear dribbles into San Antonio for limited time
Though longtime San Antonio Spurs fans may bleed silver and black, the fiesta colors will always have a place in fans' hearts. Now, that vibrant scheme is making a comeback as part of a new clothing line.
In a release, the hometown team announced that it's debuting a sporty collection called La Cultura, “created as a love letter to the culture that San Antonians call home.” The 22 pieces include streetwear favorites like T-shirts, hats, hoodies, and tanks in a wide variety of adult and children’s sizes.
The fuschia, orange, and turquoise colors, which were used in Spurs uniforms from 1989 to 2002, will forever be associated with the David Robinson years, an era that included the Spur’s first NBA championship. Still, none of the items exactly read retro.
Instead, graphic designer Owen Lindsey designed a contemporary collection that can be worn anywhere from the gym to the club. Fans who buy the basketball can even extend the style to the court.
Locals watching the Spurs battle the Washington Wizards during the October 26 Hispanic Heritage Night will have a first crack at the swag when doors open at 6:30 pm. On October 27, the gear will be available at the La Cantera Spurs fan shop and online.
However, the items are only being made in limited quantities, so fashionistas won’t want to wait long. The fiesta colors have been having a major moment over the last few weeks with everyone from players to the official Spur’s social media accounts brightening up with multi-hued pride.
