In 1960, before he was known as Muhammad Ali, then eighteen year old Cassius Clay took home the Gold Medal in Light Heavyweight Boxing at the Rome Olympics. The rest of the Muhammad Ali story is one that has been filled with triumphs, not only of opponents, but of cultural adversity as well.
Now fifty years after his decorated and storied career began, the Muhammad Ali Enterprises has teamed up with New Era for a collection of fitted hats honoring The Champ. Not only his unforgettable quotes, but also images that most fans will never forget find their way onto the popular 59FIFTY model from New Era.
Look for these on Eastbay.com later this month.
Snap back hats have been making quite a comeback in the last year or so. With vintage and retro styles from the eighties becoming increasingly popular, it’s only fitting that the hat style that went along with the exceptionally high cut sneakers return from the year’s of big hair bands as well.
LRG is on top of the trends, in fact often times setting them. For the summer they’ve created two snap back colorways featuring their unmistakable “Grass Roots” logo. One is a black and white combination, the other adds some green in to the mix on the bill and front panels. The mesh backside makes these cool and breathable, and perfect for summer barbecues and beach runs.
