Bucks' new Nike Cream City uniform pays tribute to Milwaukee

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday, Nov. 20 unveiled their new Nike Cream City Edition uniform for the 2019-20 season. 

According to a news release, the uniform's cream color serves as a nod to the bricks that built the foundation of Milwaukee and gave it its nickname “Cream City,” which is now proudly displayed to the world across the front of the uniform.

Details of the uniform, including the Bucks’ green and blue striping and script font, are reminiscent of the Bucks’ earliest days, but with a thoroughly modern touch. The shorts prominently feature the stylized “M” found throughout Bucks branding as a further representation of the team’s home city. Overall the uniform was created in honor of a city built brick by Cream City brick.

The Cream City uniforms will be worn 20 times throughout the rest of the season, making a debut on Saturday, Nov. 30, when the Bucks host the Charlotte Hornets at Fiserv Forum. 

The Bucks Cream City Edition Collection, featuring the new Cream City jersey, will go on sale Wednesday, Nov. 27 at 6 a.m. at shop.bucks.com. The collection will then be available that same day beginning at 8 a.m. at the Bucks Pro Shop inside Fiserv Forum and at the Bucks Pro Shop popup location at Bayshore Town Center. To be notified as soon as the Cream City Edition Collection is available, visit www.bucks.com/city.

The Bucks Nike Cream City Edition uniform is the team’s fourth uniform, joining the Association (white), Icon (green) and Statement (black) Edition uniforms.
