The Miami Heat currently have a uniform contract with Adidas. We have 15 basketball uniforms in our database for the Miami Heat 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.
The Heat have undergone one uniform change since their inception in 1988 and the changes were minimal.
Prior to the 1999 season, orange was dropped as an accent color in favor of yellow while Miami’s flaming basketball through a black hoop logo was shifted to a similar graphic of a ball wrapped in multi-color flames going through a white hoop.
In addition to an updated white home and black road combination, the Heat introduced a red alternate uniform in 2001 that featured “MIAMI” across the chest in white instead of “HEAT”. Miami’s current uniforms have been in place since 1999.
Prior to that for a 10-year span, jersey numerals were drop-shadowed and uniforms had retro-style piping. Orange was a featured accent color during that era. Miami has donned a variety of alternate or throwback uniforms in recent seasons including the ABA’s Miami Floridians, an all-white with black accented “White Hot” get up and an ‘El Heat’ top while participating in the NBA’s “Noche Latina” celebration nights.
The Heat debuted road Floridians in 2005, an all-black uniform with orange and hot pink vertical stripes and white accents. Miami unveiled the home Floridians six years later. Miami’s “HEAT” wordmark with a tailing flame attached to the T has been in place since 1988.
