The Indianapolis Colts currently have a uniform contract with Nike. We have 6 football uniforms in our database for the Indianapolis Colts 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.


Since 1957, Indianapolis’ gameday helmets have been white with a blue horseshoe graphic. From 1995-03, the Colts switched their gray facemasks to the franchise’s familiar royal blue, but have gone back to gray since.

The Colts have donned white pants almost exclusively for the last 25 years, dropping gray road threads that lasted for five seasons in 1987. In 1995, for a three-game stretch, Indianapolis debuted blue pants but those were quickly extinguished.

The biggest uniform change in franchise history, besides red jerseys worn the first three seasons, was the alteration from slanted shoulder stripes that wrapped around the arm to a vertical only pattern after the 2001 season.

Vertical stripes that stopped on the tops of shoulders appeared cleaner for Indianapolis, but were a major switch considering the franchise had donned curved shoulder stripes since 1957.

In 2004, the franchise updated its official blue from royal to speed, a darker shade. The Colts’ current uniform combinations include speed blue jerseys with white pants at home and white tops on the road. Block numerals have no outline and contrast with the jersey color.

The only helmet variations worn in recent years include an all-white with blue stripe shell during Thanksgiving in 2004 and a blue throwback shell with white horseshoes on the back donned twice during 2010. The throwback shells were reminiscent of what the Colts wore during the 1954 and 1955 seasons.
