HUF and KICKS/HI are two sneaker stores synonymous with top notch New Era fitted caps. So when they get together to design a New Era you know it’s going to be interesting. The fitted cap you see here is in fact a collaboration between HUF and Kicks Hawaii, and features graphics reminiscent of retro Hawaii Punch designs. This fitted cap is slated for a Fall ‘07 release.

On June 14th, a specially designed hat by artist/musician MC Yan for NSBQ (Ning Si Bu Qu) will be available at Shanghai’s ACU, Hong Kong’s Juice and nsbq.org. The flat top hat features houndstooth-like print on the top derived from military shemagh yielding a unique pattern for each cap. The print continues along the sides and the bill and features ventilation holes for those warm summer days. Only 90 caps will be produced (in both brown and army green), each one individually numbered.

Another model dropping features an all-over print featuring simplistic little objects such as asterisks, stars, and plus signs. These are available in both white and black colorways.
