The Cavaliers have unveiled their 2022-23 Nike NBA City Edition uniform, a vintage and earthy design inspired by Cleveland Metroparks.

The Nike NBA City Edition collection is a league-wide initiative created to honor the inherent bond between court, community and culture. Every season, each NBA team introduces a different City Edition uniform that represents the stories, history and heritage that make their franchise unique. The Cavaliers will debut their City Edition uniform at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse on Sunday, November 13 at 6:00 p.m. vs. Minnesota Timberwolves.

Like the Icon (wine), Association (white) and Statement (black) uniforms that were introduced this offseason, the newest version of the City Edition uniform was designed by Cavaliers Creative Director and internationally renowned contemporary artist, Daniel Arsham. This is Arsham’s first special edition uniform design project for the Cavaliers.

“From the miles and miles of bustling Lake Erie coastline to the award-winning Cleveland Metroparks, the colors and tones of our City Edition uniform represent the incredible natural resources that make up our home region,” said Arsham. “We’re proud to champion the Metroparks, the grand protector of these resources and a crown jewel of Northeast Ohio, through this unique collaboration.”

“Cleveland Metroparks is honored to be part of the inspiration for this year’s City Edition and celebrate what makes our region and community so special,” said Kelly Manderfield, Cleveland Metroparks chief marketing officer. “We’re excited for the year ahead and new opportunities to engage with fans and connect to our Emerald Necklace.”
