The New Era Black Label NBA collection will be available online and in stores this week, giving NBA fans access to 13 new styles based off the style that players have been showing before and after games.

“NBA players are some of the most stylish athletes in the world, so we wanted to make sure that they had caps to match their attire pre- and post-game,” said Joshua Krebs, senior basketball category manager for New Era. “We worked with some of our brand ambassadors to come up with the best collection possible and we know this is something that their fans will absolutely love.”
As the partnership between New Era and the NBA continues, expect much more signature styles like these. For now, the New Era Black Label line provides more than enough opportunity for fans to match their own styles with their fan-dom.
