Support Your NBA Team with a Snapback
| Aida Lee
If you’re an NBA fan then you’ve probably wondered how to rock an NBA snapback or strapback hat. Thankfully, a snapback is one of the most versatile and easy-to-wear hats there is, and like a belt or a suit, they’re a classic wardrobe staple. You’ll get plenty of use out of your snapback, whether you buy one, two, or twenty.
NBA snapbacks showcase your favourite basketball team - or teams! Sporting their team colours and logos, and sometimes even the numbers worn by specific basketball stars, there’s a snapback out there that perfectly celebrates your favourite team or moment from basketball history.
Snapback hats have a distinct closure system at the back so that you get a snug fit, along with flat brims and six firm sections that create the classic vaulted dome cap. Snapbacks were popularised by hip hop artists in the 90s but they’ve also been a sports fan staple from the beginning. These days, far from being just a casual sporting accessory, snapbacks are mainstream fashion, worn together with stylish contemporary clothing. It’s not unusual to see a snapback paired with a crisp white shirt, chinos and high end loafers for a high-low look that covers all bases.
If you’re wondering how to show your team some support then a customised snapback is your best option. You can add distinctive features such as particular player numbers, logos, mascots or quotes to your snapback with custom embroidery that makes you stand out from other fans.
But if you’re happy to go with existing designs, then the next best thing to think about is which logo is right for you. Do you want to sport a vintage design, calling to mind a particular era or great player? Or do you want to keep up with the times and show your support for your team’s newest look?
A good example is our New Era Youth 9Fifty Heather Drop Philadelphia 76ers Snapback, featuring their famous 1977 logo of a basketball with 76ers in the centre. This logo takes us back to their high scoring season with basketball greats George McGinnis, Doug Collins and Joe Bryant. But if you would prefer to fast forward to now, the New Era Youth 9Fifty NBA City Series 19 Philadelphia 76ers Snapback features the current “Philadelphia” wordmark and team colours for a classy look packed with team spirit. You can even take the whole look up a little by opting for different colours and fabrics, such as the Mitchell and Ness NBA Suede Brim Board Philadelphia 76ers Snapback in Black/Tan.
