The Denver Broncos currently have a uniform contract with Nike. We have 11 football uniforms in our database for the Denver Broncos 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.
No NFL franchise benefitted more quickly from its uniform overhaul than the Denver Broncos who, in 1997, transitioned from their tangerine orange and royal blue to a rich navy and hot orange scheme with unmatched success.
John Elway led the Broncos to consecutive Super Bowl titles during the first two seasons in the new threads. Denver ditched its royal blue helmet with the orange “D” logo featuring a white Bronco for a modern stallion with an orange mane graphic still being worn today.
Denver’s new navy shell and updated logo blended well with the franchise’s monochrome blue jersey and pants combination as well as an all-white get up donned away from Mile High. In 2002, the Broncos added an orange alternate jersey reserved for special home games. The bright top became the preferred choice in 2013 as the 16-year old revised navy jersey with orange piping was moved to alternate status.
The Broncos brought back the royal blue and orange uniforms worn for nearly 35 years during the 2001 season and incorporated a 1961-style throwback with brown pants and helmets in 2009. Mustard yellow jerseys were an eye sore for fans and viewers in the modern era, but the uniforms brought back memories of the franchise’s beginning.
Currently, Denver’s navy home alternate pants have orange streaks down the sides while the Broncos’ white pants features navy piping. Home jerseys, either navy or orange, have white numerals outlined in navy while the white tops feature navy numerals outlined in orange. Denver had an orange pants set from 1968-1971 and again during the 1978 and ’79 seasons, but they haven’t been seen since.
Prior to moving to blue helmets strictly in 1967, the Broncos wore orange shells in previous years with a white Broncos decal.
