Miami Dolphins aqua

Recommended Posts

Has the shade of aqua in the Miami Dolphins uniforms stayed consistent over the years or has it varied?

According to the mighty TruColor the Dolphins have changed their shade of aqua twice: a very slight darkening in 1990, and a much more significant lightening as part of the rebrand to the current look in 2013.

I really like the Dolphins aqua but I wish they didn't wear aqua socks with aqua pants.

I really wish they didn't wear aqua pants or socks at all on the road.

 

The Dolphins' all-white sets are one of the best looks in football imo. (though they pale in comparison to the throwbacks)

As a Dolphin fan, I also dislike that look. 

 

For years teams have been doing "THAT THING" of wearing socks, or sock color breaks, which match pants. Yuck.

In my world, Colored pants should always be broken by a secondary color (Ravens) OR white sock with stripes (Browns). (this years quick examples)

 

I'm surprised at the Ravens. They're usually one of my least favorite but that white, purple pants (with piping!) and black/white socks is nice!

 

To add, some Color Rush uniforms do the opposite. They'll have a completely white sock with no strips or color break and project a white leotard look.  For example, the Giants' CR uniform is basically the Lawrence Taylor Era uniform set with no color break.

As a Dolphins fan I'm okay with them wearing aqua pants on the road for a game or two but they need to be paired with striped white socks. I love the throwbacks but I'm pleased with the recent changes they made to the uniforms and colors

Not that many years - it’s a relatively recent phenomenon, and not a good one.
