If there is one thing sneakerheads new and old know, nothing sets off a fit with new kicks like a matching hat. It doesn’t have to be exact – matter of fact, it’s better when the hits are subtle, discreet, making the audience work to understand the color combinations.
Or just go all out, team matchy-match and put your allegiance out there, especially if you are headed to a game to watch that team – no shame in loyalty.
Since the Major League Baseball season kicked off last week, it only makes sense that we will start seeing the new headgear on fans across the country, with New Era kicking off their “We Reign As One” campaign to coincide with opening day. Using the tried, true, and one and only 59Fifty silhouette (the TRUE hat), they enlisted players like Justin Turner of the Los Angeles Dodgers, Didi Gregorious of the New York Yankees, Christian Yelich from the Milwaukee Brewers (MVP! MVP!), Francisco Lindor of the Cleveland Indians, Jose Altuve of the Houston Astros, Javier Baez from the Cubs, Ronaldo Acuna from the Atlanta Braves and Jay Rock, of the Los Angeles Dod… nope, wait a minute, he’s a rapper, which is cool, because they look good in hats too.
Also, how do you wear your hats – straight bill, a little curve, creased and folded, low crown dad hats, or not at all. Check the images below and let us know.
