The Miami Heat’s latest edition of their ‘Vice’ City Jerseys was finally unveiled on Monday, even if it wasn’t such a big surprise in the team’s choice of colour this year (thank the internet gods for that one) However, it seems the Heat are going all out the year when it comes to the new #ViceWave campaign.
The latest installment of the Heat’s ‘Vice’ collection shifts the action from the Miami at night neons, to the sun-soaked brightness of South Beach afternoon, with the color “Blue Gale” taking center stage. The uniform is inspired by Miami’s history and the city of Miami in the 1980’s and 1990’s, and was conceived and produced in-house by the award-winning Heat Creative Department.
To celebrate the release of the new uni, the Heat are going all out when it comes to you guys... The fans. And here’s how you can get involved with the HeatWave experience.
ViceWave merchandise may be purchased first at the Midnight Madness event at AmericanAirlines Arena on Tuesday, November 26, at midnight. The entire ViceWave merchandise collection, including jerseys, Court Culture merchandise and other products, will be available at all of the Miami Heat Store locations.
