The Florida State Seminoles currently have a uniform contract with Nike. We have 13 basketball uniforms in our database for the Florida State Seminoles 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.



Florida State’s revamped spear and feather, a look that made its debut with Bobby Bowden’s football team in 1997 after the Seminoles updated to vegas gold fonts, was added to basketball shorts in 2007.

In the uniform era, Florida State’s use of team-specific feathers as a side panel instead of stripes or piping separates the Seminoles from the rest of college basketball in that regard.

Beginning underneath the arm on each of FSU’s uniforms, the three-dimensional feather stretches all the way down to the end of shorts. Currently, the Seminoles have four different combinations on gamedays — white, garnet, gold and black — and no longer wear the single contrasting shoulder stripe that debuted in 2007.

On each current jersey, Nike prefers numerals placed between the program’s “FLORIDA STATE” wordmark. When the modern look first appeared, the swoosh dropped “FLORIDA STATE” for a shortened “FSU” wordmark, but it only lasted only two seasons.

In the 1990s, Florida State often donned shimmery gold uniforms in Tallahassee with wide garnet-stripe shorts featuring a large “Chief Osceola” logo on each side. The Seminoles’ white uniforms during the decade have a similar look to what’s being worn today minus the side feathers.

In the early 90s before FSU adopted vegas gold as an official color, the school’s shade was more of a mustard yellow.
