Which San Antonio Spurs items from Nike should you look to purchase?

On Friday morning, the Nike officially released their new NBA gear for sale. Jerseys were announced in the summer — the Icon, Association, and Statement editions (one more to be revealed) — for all teams, including the San Antonio Spurs.

The available items go beyond jerseys, however. From hats to shirts and more, fans can have a variety of Spurs gear at their fingertips.

From Nike’s NBA release, some items stood out above the rest. What looked the best?

5. Converse Gameday High Tops

Nike released a Spurs Converse Gameday High Top. The Silver and Black are represented on this famous shoe, with the logo on the side and the look that will make Spurs fans want to show off their team spirit.

These are great to wear to a game, only if you can pay a pretty penny of $250. That’s $160 more than the Franchise High Top, which notably has the Spurs logo in clear view.

As of this writing, the Converse Gameday High Tops are sold out. Once they are in stock again, head to the Nike Store to get your own pair and support the Spurs on your feet.

4. Spurs Unisex Beanie

The fall season is here. That means colder weather is on the way, so throw away those shorts and snapback hats, and replace them with pants and beanies, like this one for the Spurs.

This beanie looks simple. “Spurs” is across the front, with the team logo below and the Nike swoosh on the back. It’s stylish enough to rock in the winter for wherever you go. Even if the pom-pon isn’t your style, it looks like it can be removed, too.

Let’s see if Nike releases more beanies. However, for now, this is a good start at $30.

3. Player Nike Dry Shirts

An intriguing part of Nike’s new NBA gear is the Dry Fit for shirts. The normal look is the basic cotton. This one is a hybrid of cotton and polyester.

Nike has a description of this shirt that goes beyond the cotton and polyester, which gives customers a better idea of what to expect when they wear it:

The San Antonio Spurs Nike Dry Men’s NBA T-Shirt features sweat-wicking Dri-FIT Technology to help you stay dry and comfortable whether you’re running the court or repping your favorite team.

Aside from that, it’s repping your favorite Spurs player. In this instance, it’s Kawhi Leonard, a potential MVP candidate for the 2017-18 season. If he wins the award, your shirt will only stand out more at $35.

2. Nike Dry Logo Shirt

The Nike Dry Logo shirt is one of the most basic options available. That’s not a bad thing, however.

Simplicity can be best for some items of clothing, including this. All that’s there are the Spurs logo and the Nike swoosh near the right shoulder. Easy, simple and sharp for gameday wear and on-court attire.

This shirt can be had for $35, like the player ones. They are mostly more expensive than Adidas but look of a higher quality.

1. Jerseys

An easy choice to top the list. The Spurs Nike jerseys are slick, keeping things traditional, with a few minor updates.

For now, Nike only has the Icon edition available. They come in Swingman ($110) and Authentic ($200). So if you want to wear what the players do (or as close as possible), it will cost an extra $90.

There’s no better way of repping your team than a jersey, however. It’s wearing what the players do while having the name and number of your favorite player on your back. It’s costly to do so, but worth the buy.
