Fans in Cleveland will be happy to know that the Cavs have joined the ranks of teams to unveil a City Edition uniform for the 2018-19 season.

There are several notable design features in Cleveland’s new kits, so let’s dive right in.


As an homage to the colors they wore during the 1994 season — their first at the new downtown arena — the Cavs decided to go with vibrant orange and blue.

The wave that separates the blue and orange colors on Cleveland’s new CE kits is meant to represent the power and energy generated from Lake Erie. The jock tag of the jersey also features a slogan that reads “1 of 5 greats,” which is a reference to the five Great Lakes.

“A force of nature, The Great Lake Erie symbolizes the perseverance and fortitude of a community of people who stand strong together and proudly call themselves Clevelanders.”

The shorts of Cleveland’s new uniforms feature the Cavs’ stylized “C” logo on the lower portion of the right leg. The logo is predominantly white, with blue and orange accents adding a 3-D effect. Just below the “C” logo, the designers at Nike incorporated an image of the Great Lakes under the ventilation flap.
