adidas and University of Louisville today unveiled commemorative uniforms for the Cardinals basketball team to wear during Friday’s Armed Forces Classic at the US Coast Guard Air Station Borinquen in Puerto Rico.

These limited edition uniforms feature a white and grey camouflage pattern with red and light blue trim as a nod to the Coast Guard’s colors and racing stripe. The back of each jersey displays the Coast Guard motto of “Semper Paratus,” which translates to “Always Ready.”

The uniform also includes custom editions of the D Rose 773 III and D Rose Englewood III done-up in a Louisville red camouflage pattern with blue laces. The Cardinals’ mantra “L1C4” (Louisville First, Cards Forever) is stitched into the heel.

Beginning tomorrow, fans can get their own versions of the Armed Forces Classic D Rose 773 III at
