Indiana Hoosiers men’s basketball program wore the alternate Fear of God jerseys for the first and last time in their 76-72 loss against Northwestern on Sunday afternoon, according to head coach Mike Woodson.

“I didn’t have any control over that,” Woodson said during his radio show on Monday. “You know, I’m about home, wearing our white uniforms like we’ve for 40-plus years. But that was out of my hands too. We won’t be wearing these for the rest of the season. I had nothing to do with it, and I’m the head coach, so…“

The all-black uniforms are a collaboration between adidas and Fear of God, an influential American luxury fashion label founded by Jerry Lorenzo. They are part of a contractual agreement with the apparel company but did not resonate with fans.

Underneath the large purple number were the purple „Indiana“ in the athletic „Fear of God“ font. The shorts and matching player-exclusive shoes also featured a color-coordinated Hoosiers script.


Meanwhile, Indiana’s women’s basketball team will also wear the same uniforms for the game on Thursday night against Iowa. It remains uncertain whether they will be seen beyond that, as deputy athletic director Stephen Harper suggested that the department’s commitment to traditional uniforms remains unshakeable.

“Adidas has been a great partner for us in the department and from time to time they like to bring special products to the market that they think will excite the players and excite the recruits,” Harper said on Woodson’s show. “I meet with a lot of our recruits as they come through and tell them about the opportunities we have in the department, and you’ll see many of our recruits wearing that brand, so I think it still holds meaning for them, it’s just not as important to everyone else.“
