Purchasing team basketball jerseys and shoes can be a challenge for coaches. The coach wants to be cost efficient while getting a reliable product, while players care less about cost and more about what they’ll look like on court.
Naturally, it’s difficult for coaches to manage their players’ expectations about the gear that they will be receiving from their school teams. Some coaches can satisfy their players’ demands because they have large budgets to work with, but most coaches do not have this luxury. So how do coaches find affordable jerseys and shoes that satisfy their players and allow them to perform at their best looking the way they want?
