The Kansas Jayhawks currently have a uniform contract with Adidas. We have 22 basketball uniforms in our database for the Kansas Jayhawks 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 Jayhawks have used the same Adidas template the last few years on their uniforms, but they have spiced things up a notch and separated from tradition on occasion.
Current uniforms are categorized by wavy striping and piping and on the back neckline just above the nameplate, the Jayhawks’ “KU” logo is seen in white with red trim. The Jayhawks donned their first throwback in several seasons in 2013 when Kansas celebrated “115 years of basketball at Allen Field House” against TCU.
The old-school threads that resembled what the 1988 national championship squad wore during their time featured a classic “KANSAS” wordmark with red, white and blue striped armpits and collar.
Kansas’ uniforms in the 2013 Big East Tournament featured loud camouflage-inspired shorts and white wordmarks and numerals on jerseys. The Jayhawks were one of six teams — Baylor, Cincinnati, Louisville, Notre Dame and UCLA — to don Adidas’ “Adizero” threads late in 2013.
Kansas also unveiled an all-blue road uniform as part of Adidas’ “Bleed-Out” one-tone uniform campaign earlier the same season. Prior to signing with Adidas in 2005, Kansas basketball was outfitted by the swoosh and incorporated a red alternate into its uniform routine.
The Jayhawks’ “KANSAS” wordmark during the Nike era had more of a traditional look as well as stylized numerals.
The most school’s most memorable fashion no-no came during the 1987-88 season when the Jayhawks sported an all-yellow alternate on the road. Fans at Western Carolina saw the bright yellow, blue and red uniforms and that was it. Adidas’ 2013-14 uniform redesign at Kansas will feature wide blue shoulder stripes at home and white on the road.
Instead of piping on shorts, a ‘wing’ design will be incorporated in a contrasting color.
