The special uniforms were designed by the team and K1 Sportswear to reflect the organization’s support and respect for veterans and military families through a red, white and blue theme. There is a medallion for each of the US Armed Forces and an American flag on the neck of each jersey. The shoulders feature a flag-themed patriotic logo while on the chin of the Ice Wolves’ logo, flying over the Sandia Mountains is a C-130, Osprey and an F-16 as a nod to the importance of Kirtland Air Force Base in the Albuquerque community. The logo on the front of the jersey is a further nod to the Air Force history in the state as the logo is meant to use a reflection of the U.S. Air Force in honoring all active and veterans of the US Armed Forces. The aviator glasses are turquoise, the color of the state stone and one of the primary team colors. Reflected in the aviators is a flash of the Zia symbol as the snout detail always shows. Finally, the nose on the logo is a shout out to the amazing Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta that takes place annually in our community and attracts so much attention worldwide.
