Houston Texans Unveiled their First Uniform Makeover Since the Team’s Founding in 2000

The Houston Texans are changing their look for the first time in team history.

Plural looks that aim to hit all the bases—tradition, innovation, and bold statement—have replaced them. Four new uniforms were introduced by Houston on Tuesday: a radical alternate uniform that aimed to emphasize the expression of the city the Texans call home; an upgraded home kit; and a new road set with updated features for the shoulder and helmet.

The Texans’ redesigned home suit is the most close to their prior uniforms from 2002 to 2023. The classic bull insignia of the team at the end of each sleeve cap has replaced the red stripes that once adorned the shoulders of the Deep Steel Blue tops. Red player names have replaced the white ones for Houston, and all four outfits now have a new custom number typeface.

The “Texans” are written in a small red typeface over the breast of the white and red-trimmed home jersey. Houston refinished their Deep Steel Blue helmet with a metallic flake finish and updated their white leggings with a new two-stripe pattern that features a big blue stripe and one thin red accent stripe.

When the Texans go on the road, they’ll don their new Liberty White tops and Deep Steel Blue helmet, which has an innovative bullhorn insignia that mimics the team’s primary logo’s horns by starting at the back of the shoulder cap and wrapping upward toward the front. With an inner Battle red accent line and Deep Steel Blue horns on the white tops, Houston’s newly updated shoulder ornamentation complements the Battle Red word “Houston” inscribed over the chest.

The new numbers are displayed on the road tops in Deep Steel Blue with Battle Red trim, while the pants in the same color scheme have the same design, with a narrow Liberty White line and a large Battle Red stripe.

With their Battle Red alternates, Houston upped the adventure factor. The new bullhorn emblem, which appears as Deep Steel Blue on both sides of the helmet, took the place of the candy Battle Red finish from their prior alternate helmet. These shells look great with the new bullhorns on the sleeve caps of a Battle Red jersey that matches. Houston has changed the colors, filling the numbers in Deep Steel Blue and trimming them in Liberty White, after more than ten years of donning Battle Red jerseys with white numerals trimmed in blue. These new tops look great with matching red pants that have narrow Liberty White stripes and large Deep Steel Blue stripes.

Now for the bold move: Houston unveiled a brand-new alternate Color Rush style that will remind some of the latest MLB and NBA sets with a local theme. H-Town Blue may be seen on a revolutionary fourth kit, which replaces the helmet’s bull badge with a brand-new H mark that emphasizes Houston. The Texans will douse the remainder of their new home uniform in Battle Red and H-Town Blue, and wear this logo on the side of their helmets. The sleeve caps of the uniform still include the bull emblem, but it is trimmed in H-Town Blue instead of Liberty White, with the single star eye of the insignia appearing in Battle Red.

This outfit makes a bold statement and looks great. Houston supporters have long demanded that the Texans play in their hometown of Houston while donning the Oilers’ former colors, having lost to Tennessee in the middle of the 1990s. Rather, throughout the last 15 years, the Titans, who hold the franchise history and hence the right to wear the throwbacks, have occasionally worn Oilers outfits, including in 2023.

In response, the Texans came up with their own style that incorporates the colors in a fresh way. It will definitely stand out against their primary color of Deep Steel Blue, especially in the primetime light.

It is evident that the Texans are making an effort to modernize their look while keeping the most cherished aspects of the uniforms they have worn since taking the field for the first time in 2002, even though there is a lack of elemental coherence throughout the entire new uniform scheme. It’s appropriate for a team that spent too many years in the basement before experiencing an amazing comeback in 2023 that included a playoff triumph, even though it is ambitious and, in certain areas, aggressive.

“Today, for the first time since 2000, we are so proud to reveal our new uniforms. They are even more special because they are inspired by and for our fans,” Texans CEO and chair Cal McNair said in a statement. “Our fans asked us to be more H-Town and we delivered. They were with us every step of the way and there’s truly something for everyone over the four uniforms.”

These Texans will no longer put up with sitting in the bullpen. Houston is making a bold statement with their new uniforms: we’re prepared to take the football world by storm.
