MLB Authentic Collection 59Fifty Cap

Stay Laced Up with Lacer Headwear

Whether art, music, fashion, or culture; originality means many things to many different people. But it is unarguably about a commitment to where things began and a passion for where things are going.

Lacer Headwear is a patented design that combines the baseball cap and sneaker perfectly to produce a supreme companion accessory for any pair of kicks.

Lacer Headwear embodies a maxim of “evolved originality,” by providing fashion accessories worn by those drawn to cultural evolution and the pursuit of individuality, while purposely avoiding conventional concepts. Inspired by sneaker culture, the Lacer allows the evolution of sports footwear to be relived within a baseball cap.

NBA licensed Lacer Emblems are available for matching “Hoops Series” Lacer colorways. They have partnered with a third party sports licensee that enables our brand to market these NBA licensed accessories. The NBA Lacer Emblem enables the wearer to represent their favorite NBA teams.

Q&A: With Kyle the Creator of The K-Pack

The Athletic Genius interviewed Kyle of K-Pack a neoprene backpack that would hold all of those important items while exercising. 

Q: Why did you call your pouches K-Pack and when did you launch it?
A: The first K-Pack was made for me as a Christmas gift when I was a Junior in high school.  I’d previously described the idea to my family, so when my aunt drew my name in the family gift raffle, she decided to bring the idea to life for me.  Had she not done that, it’s hard to say if I would have ever gotten it off the ground.  I tend to be a doer so I’d like to think so, but there’s no way to know for sure.  In terms of the name, when she made me the first sample, she wrote K-Vest on the outside pocket.  The K was simply for Kyle.  People seemed to like the name, so it stuck.  Although I originally pursued the K-Vest and had some initial success, I eventually had to abandon the project.  Between that time and now, another company started selling a golf harness called a K-Vest, so I decided to change the name to K-Pack.  I’m aware that it makes me look like something of an egomaniac selling a product that is named after me, but it’s no biggie, I dig the new name.

Dwyane Wade Signs Sneaker Deal with Li-Ning

Currently in China for the announcement, Wade stated “In the end, the pros outweighed the cons.” The Miami Heat guard continued, “Jordan might have that cool factor, but I’m at a different point in my career. I want to be involved in building something.” But Wade knows the challenge ahead for Li-Ning, especially when it comes to the US market, since “people don’t like to change the brands they know.”

Bikini Basketball League On Its Way

Since 2011, the idea of the Bikini Basketball League has been in the works. But after the success of the Lingerie Football League, the concept is now going to see the light of day. With teams like the Chicago Desire, Orlando LadyCats, Miami Spice, Los Angeles Ice, New York Knockouts, Hollywood Hotties and Atlanta Fleet Angels already committed to the league, things are moving nicely towards their launch in only 36 days. Each player is chosen based on skills, personality, athleticism, drive, competitiveness and of course looks.

The Bikini Basketball League will follow in the infamous footsteps of the Lingerie Football League that gained national prominence with it's Lingerie Bowl at half-time of the Super Bowl. Only time will tell if women in skimpy bikinis is just as entertaining as women in football pads.

What are your thoughts on this? Would you join a bikini sports league? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
