Gallery of every Miami Heat City Edition Jersey from 2018 to 2020 (including “ViceWave” jerseys)

Few jerseys have captured the essence of a city as well as the Miami Heat City Edition jerseys have done since they were first introduced in the 2017-18 season. The Heat’s City Edition jerseys are officially nicknamed the Vice jerseys because of the color similarities with the logo of the popular 1984 TV series Miami Vice.

While the influence of Miami Vice on the design is undeniable, the main inspiration came from the bright neon signs that are one of the most defining features of South Beach.

Miami Heat “Vice Nights” Jerseys (2018-19)

The 2019 edition of the Miami Heat city edition jerseys was launched with the help of Heat legend Dwayne Wade, who is a big fan of the design. The jerseys, nicknamed Vice Nights, are inspired by the nighttime look of South Beach where the bright neon signs light up the darkness.

The base color of the jersey is black and the rest of the details are colored in neon pink and blue. These details include the lines on the right side of the jersey and those around the openings for the head and the arms, as well as the number and the word “Miami” written across the chest in the original Miami Arena script. 

If you’re interested in picking up one of these amazing Vice Nights jerseys, you can do so at the official Miami Heat store.

Miami Heat “ViceWave” Jerseys (2019-20)

We’re just at the halfway mark of the 2019-20 NBA regular season and what we can say with certainty is that the Miami Heat have surprised the basketball predictions by SportyTrader experts. The surprises didn’t stop there as the Heat somehow managed to improve upon their universally-loved City jersey from last season.

The sunny South Beach afternoons have inspired the 2020 edition of the Vice city jerseys nicknamed ViceWave. The layout of the ViceWave jersey is identical to that of the Vice Nights jersey, but the colors used for the ViceWave jerseys give them a very different feel.

The ViceWave is much lighter and brighter than the Vice Nights, and it has an almost fluorescent look to it. Aqua-blue has been chosen as the base color of the jersey and the iconic Miami Arena script writing makes a comeback. Neon pink is still found in the details of the jersey where it is accompanied by black and white instead of aqua-blue.

These are somehow the best edition of the Miami Vice jerseys; somehow improving on last year’s design. The new look couldn’t look any better on the biggest surprise team in the league this season. With Jimmy Butler, Bam Adebayo, Goran Dragic, Kendrick Nunn, Tyler Herro, Justise Winslow, and Duncan Robinson, there’s no shortage of jerseys to want. Ad you can get one for your collection from Fanatics, or the official NBA store.

How to Improve an Already Perfect Jersey?

The Miami Heat’s City Edition jerseys have consistently been ranked among the best designed City jerseys in the NBA, one of the most-popular among NBA fans, and if this season’s take on the jerseys are any indication, we can expect them to get better every year. 

With the Miami Heat once again looking like a team that absolutely no one wants to face in a playoff series, it will be even more exciting to see what the designers will have in store for us next year.
