The Houston Rockets currently have a uniform contract with Adidas. We have 15 basketball uniforms in our database for the Houston Rockets and are working to add more to Uniform Critics. Feel free to contact us with any uniform designs for this team that we may be missing.


Before Houston’s chinese calligraphic-lettering overhaul that included shimmer uniforms in 2003, the Rockets’ primary get up the previous eight years was red, silver and blue uniforms with a stripe-fade on jerseys and pants.

The recognizable primary logo was a red basketball with a silver “ROCKETS” wordmark that featured a screaming rocket orbiting the graphic. Houston’s logo was in the center of both home and road jerseys and a secondary graphic — a rocket orbiting a stylized “R” — adorned the knee. After the 2011 season, the Rockets joined the recent trend of going back in time for a needed retro revamping.

Yellow was brought back to stay in Houston’s color scheme after a red and yellow throwback alternate was revealed in 2009. That alternate, along with home whites, is the current look that borrows from threads donned in the 1970s. When unveiled prior to the 1972-73 season, Houston’s fanbase said the yellow basketball with two red tails logo looked like ketchup and mustard.

Resembling condiments or not, the styles remained in place until 1995 when the navy, white and red orbiting rocket made its debut. Houston’s all-gray with red accents uniforms on Christmas Day in 2012 were mishandled. Numerals were difficult to see and the gray scheme didn’t fit into the Rockets’ red, yellow and white swatch.
