The Miami Heat have gone to great lengths to get the Miami Dolphins to wear new uniforms.
So it only makes sense they’ve decided to keep them around in their new uniform, which will include a black-and-gold, silver-and gold, and gold-and blue color scheme.
“We’ve gone out and tried to find a way that we could keep it with the same feel, but with a different look,” Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra said at his team’s practice Wednesday.
“The new uniform is a lot more comfortable to wear, with a lot of that old-school feel.”
The Heat wore white uniforms for the first time in the team’s history in February, but the new design was the only change.
Spoelstrasons team will wear the uniform for the next few months, as he continues to evaluate its fit, and hopes to see a more natural-looking uniform in time for the upcoming season.
“The design is different,” Spoelstroth said.
“It’s a little more uniform-like.
But I’m confident that we’ll be able to wear it again in the future.”
The new uniform will debut on March 8, as the Heat host the Atlanta Hawks in their home opener.
