In honor of Phil Knight's 80th birthday, Nike has organized PK80, a double-bracket basketball tournament featuring teams from Arkansas, Butler, Connecticut, Duke, DePaul, Florida, Gonzaga, Michigan State, North Carolina, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Oregon, Portland, Portland State, Stanford and Texas. During the tourney, running from November 23 - 26 in Portland, Oregon, teams will wear uniforms and footwear inspired by Knight's signature style. In the latter category, sneakers will reflect Knight's preference for all-black outfits and sunglasses. That aesthetic is seen on the Kyrie 3, PG1, Kobe AD and KD10, as well as the Jordan 32 and Super.Fly 2017. Scroll through the gallery below to check out the men's and women's uniforms, along with individual looks at each silhouette.
