The end of 2011 is upon us and all I can think of is how quickly the year has gone by. To think a year ago Oh Snapbacks wasn’t yet live… In the time since our launch in late March we’ve so far posted 2300+ pages, had numerous contests, and grown in readership and following faster than we could have imagined. Life is about pushing forward and we look forward to what 2012 has in store.
Here’s my personal top 5 snapback caps for 2011 starting with the #1 spot.
Members of the elite HEINEKEN 100 were given this exclusive New Era 9Fiftty snapback cap. It features various Heineken branding around the cap. The cap takes on a theme of Blackout with subtle Black on Black embroidery. Exclusive to the max.
2011 was KICKS/HI‘s 11th anniversary and boy did they go out with a bang. Collaborating with industry giants STUSSY and PARRA yielded this gorgeous Black denim snapback. Needless to say these went fast.
Why divide New Yorkers when you can unite them? That’s exactly what SECRET SOCIETY did when they released their Football Pack of their famed New York logo snapback caps. Choose between a Jets or giants colorway, or better yet, get both of them.
The 2011 BILLABONG PRO RIO meant the return of the prestigious event to Rio De Janeiro aka The Marvelous City. Brazilian ADRIANO DE SOUZA took home the Gold for the contest; rightfully so. Event riders and select VIP were treated to an exclusive event 9Fifty snapback cap by New Era.
While surfing and New York don’t really go hand in hand, the QUIKSILVER PRO NY proved us wrong. Dropping in back in early September with slight delays from Hurricane Irene, the contest commenced and was deemed a success for the first ever ASP World Championship Tour stop on the East Coast. The official event snapback cap featured a creative take on the event bridging the Big Apple and Quiksilver logo, literally.
