Sports Specialties Vintage Hats

Sports Specialties may not be a brand many are familiar today with but they go way back and are perhaps the most impactful in the sports headwear industry in the ‘80s.

They were the first company to receive a pro merchandising license and continued to be a success until acquired by Nike in 1992. The year the brand was acquired, Sports Specialties made a revenue of over $70 million dollars so they weren’t exactly a small company either.

However, with time, the quality of hats arguably got worse and the brand faded away, only to live on in the memories of fans.

Today, only a few are left and carry sky-high resale values of up to $1,200 for some hats. Although you probably can’t get your hands on those vintage head wears, you can buy similarly constructed Sport Specialties-inspired sneakers from Nike!

To estimate resale for the Nike Dunk High Sports Specialties, let’s head on over to StockX!

The Nike Dunk High EMB Lakers also feature a construction that’s partly inspired by Sports Specialties hats.

Purple leather overlays cover the mudguards, eye stays, and heel overlays that feature embossed “Nike” text across the lateral quarters in Lakers-like fashion.

Black canvas underlays, bright yellow Swooshes, white midsoles, and black outsoles complete the look.

The average selling price on StockX is $160 which is a $50 gross profit. Expect the Nike Dunk High Sports Specialties to yield similar profits.

Inspired by the debuting 3 color options that made Sports Specialties a household name in the ’80, this Nike Dunk High dons a corduroy Midnight Navy base which covers the side panels, toe boxes, parts of the collars, and the throats.

Overlays feature clean white leather which appears on the mudguards, eye stays, and the heel overlays.

The rear quarters wear a badge that reads “Official Nike Basketball Merchandise” while the white tongue tags feature Sports Specialties’ and Nike’s branding. Additional details include white insoles with branded graphics that read “One Size Fits Most”, a nod at the iconic caps that had production stopped long ago.

Green corduroy side Swooshes, crisp white midsoles, and Midnight Navy outsoles complete the design.
