Run-DMC NFL Football Gear Collection
It’s time to take it to the house. Who’s house? Run’s house! As music meets football in this sports gear mash-up. Introducing the new Run-DMC NFL collection, which takes the classic logo of one of the most influential Hip-Hop groups of all time, and puts a football spin on it. (They’re also available for other sports, but that’s none of our business).
Run-DMC teamed up with Fanatics to create a cool and unique new way of representing your favorite team. As long as the group has been around, they’ve still managed to remain a relevant symbol in fashion and music. And, seeing as the running game is a very important part of football, it ties into the concept nicely.
Ralph Peck, president of Fanatics Branded ensures us that they have “worked very closely with the RUN-DMC team to make sure we captured the essence of their iconic brand throughout all of the gear in this line.”
The group’s own Darryl McDaniels AKA “DMC” is also excited to be involved. “It’s cool to have the RUN-DMC logo be part of this special collection,” says DMC. ” I like having the spirit of our music history tied into the passion of sports fans around the world.”
The shirts are made from 100% cotton, while the hoodies are 80% cotton/20% polyester. Both feature screen-print graphics of the team of your choice, and are made exclusively by Pro Line NFL. This is the official league’s own brand so no worries about durability, as they’re quality made.
The one thing I noticed right off the bat about the collection is that it’s incomplete. There are only 27 teams available, which means the majority of fans will be able to rock Run-DMC NFL gear, while a few of you will have to admire the rest of us from a distance. Sorry Pats, Saints, Raiders, 49ers, and Bucs fans.
Hopefully, this is on only temporary, though, as it would be a shame to miss out on such a cool collection. In the meantime, you can see what’s available by following the link below.
