I’m not sure if the marketing departments from the Los Angeles Lakers and UCLA Bruins got together and decided it would be a good idea to pair together the whole ‘LA nights’ theme, because if not, it would be quite the coincidence.

A few weeks after the Lakers announced they would be wearing an all black alternate jersey which they’re calling ‘Hollywood Nights’, the UCLA Bruins released their all black alternative jersey which they’re naming ‘LA Midnight’.

Collaboration or not, the Bruins alternate uniforms are pretty sweet.

The Adidas crafted uniforms will make their debut November 15 when the Bruins take on the Washington Huskies.

Adidas took just about every line they own, from TECHFIT to CLIMACOOL to Crazyquick to ShockWeb technology and put them all together for this not only visually impressive uniform, but one that actually helps the player perform better on the field – at least – so we’re told.

How far we’ve come from what were nothing more than basic t-shirt’s with screen printed numbers on them.
