New York Yankees Spike Lee Wool Navy
ABOUT NEW ERA X SPIKE LEE 1996 HERITAGE SERIES
1996 was the year the New York Yankees claimed their 23rd World Series. It was also the first time celebrated film director Spike Lee and New Era first worked together with Spike Lee using his visual storytelling talents to share New Era's brand heritage and to design a world first red Yankees cap that changed the headwear game forever.
New Era's blue Yankees cap is the most iconic cap in the entire world. Back in the late 90’s Spike called the CEO of New Era and wanted him to create a red New York Yankees cap for him to wear to the World Series. New Era and MLB approved the cap because they knew Spike would be on TV and the cap would generate some buzz….little did they know that moment would literally change cap culture forever!
From that moment on, sports stars and trendsetters alike all embraced New Era cap designs. To celebrate this historical moment, New Era has re-released the Spike Lee Cap in both a premium leather and a red wool, just like the OG models as well as navy versions. Each coming with their own commemorative packaging.
