The classic San Antonio Spurs fiesta colors are popping up a lot recently, are they making a comeback this season?
In 2003, the San Antonio Spurs changed their primary logo to a sleek and modern design, eliminating the fiesta themed colors that highlighted the team for 12 seasons. The iconic color scheme is often tied with the career of Spurs legend David Robinson, who was selected first overall in the 1987 NBA Draft. Robinson made his debut in the 1989-90 season, just before the logo was implemented.

The fiesta color scheme is treasured deeply by many fans and has been mostly absent ever since.
It seems like that’s going to change sooner rather than later. There’s been no confirmation that the team will unveil Fiesta themed gear, but there’ve been plenty of signs to indicate that the colors will make a return this season.
Since the offseason, San Antonio’s social media accounts have been using quite a bit of fuchsia in their design schemes and graphics.
All the while, new waves of Fiesta themed apparel and goods began to flood the team shop online and in person. Now, All Star DeMar DeRozan and point guard Patty Mills have been spotted wearing kicks with fuchsia, blue and orange tones.

DeRozan, who’s an active member of Nike’s endorsement roster, has worn two separate pairs of player exclusive Kobe A.D.’s with Fiesta themed colorways. This could be a sign of things to come, as Nike took over as the official jersey sponsor of the NBA last season.

Mills, who’s currently the longest tenured Spur, was spotted wearing a pair of fiesta themed kicks ahead of San Antonio’s 110-106 victory over the L.A. Lakers on Saturday evening.
There’s been no indication of what this year’s “City Edition” uniforms will look like, but if the reemergence of the Fiesta theme is connected to the team’s next wave of jerseys then fans could be in for a great surprise.
