The San Antonio Spurs will debut the team's new City Edition jerseys during its match-up against the Milwaukee Bucks at the AT&T Center on Friday.

This year's City Edition Spurs gear, which celebrates the unique heritage of each NBA city, has been well received by fans and national media alike, being ranked the No. 5 best jersey design by USA Today.

Instead of sporting the usual silver and black, this year's City Edition jerseys feature a bright turquoise backdrop with retro accents of pink and orange taping along with a Spurs logo on the waistband. The color scheme pays homage to the 1996 NBA All-Star Game at the Alamodome, San Antonio's only time hosting the big event.

The jersey design received high praise from Spurs fans on social media.
The team will wear the City Edition jerseys during 10 games this year, including the 50th-anniversary celebration matchup against the Golden State Warriors at the Alamodome on Jan. 13.
Alamo City sports fans can get their own turquoise jersey at the Spurs' official website.
