The Evolution of Miami Heat Uniforms throughout Franchise History
- Updated: November 21, 2014
The Miami Heat jerseys donned by fans have boasted some of the most legendary names in basketball history: Dan Majerle, Glen Rice, Rony Seikaly, Alonzo Mourning, Tim Hardaway, Shaquille O’Neal, Gary Payton, LeBron James, and of course, franchise superstar Dwayne Wade. With over 25 years of history on the court, the Heat have cycled through quite a few jerseys in its time as a team. Let’s take a look at how the red, white, and black threads have evolved through the years.
At the Miami Heat’s inception in 1988, the players were given simple white uniforms with red and orange trim on the right side only for their home games. Their away-game jerseys were black with white, red, and orange trim, reminiscent of the Chicago Bulls color scheme at the time. The uniforms utilized the font from the original Los Angeles Lakers jerseys and featured the classic flaming ball logo on the bottom left side of the shorts and the word “Miami” on the right. The white home uniform was reintroduced to celebrate the Heat’s 20th anniversary, while the black away jersey was featured for their 25th anniversary. In the 1995-96 season, Miami unveiled their first new uniform in seven years. The team added an alternate jersey in red with black and white trim.
