LAWRENCE, Kan. – –

The men and women of Kansas's basketball will be playing new Saturday's new specials as part of the Renaidas collection of Adidas Harlem. Kansas is one of 11 schools in the country – and the only team in the Big 12 Conference – with this new look.

The wings draw their inspiration from the Harlem Renaissance, with different marks that span that time. The 1920s created a new black cultural identity, where the people involved were hoping to change the story of the key white stereotypes of the black community. This period of time is a great producer of the idea that the creator's power reduces ignorance and hate.

Another significant participant with these new observers is to use ballrooms during that time. The wonderful bathroom looks with the legendary Harlem Rens, a all-black professional basketball team (known as the Big Five Renaissance) which was created in the early 1920's, which would play its home games on a local ballroom dance floor.

The success of this team has helped to change the focus of amateurism to professionalism for black basketball athletes. Following the unrestricted victory of the Boston Celtics bank, John & Boy Wonder, Rens & # 39; The word Isaacs Colored & # 39; out of his jacket championship with a razor to "… make it true".

Ballrooms also represented music, culture and the game, in line with the unique color scheme of the uniform. The design consists of red and red toy and purple, red and white cream, made of traditional black and white.

Ballroom design is the overall concept of the uniform, and the layout that gives the impression of a ballroom dance floor. Skin inside the shorts of the player will be tightened with the Ballroom word as well as the street balls of the Ballroom Ballroom.
