Nike Basketball is bringing back the hat, launching a collection inspired by hardwood style.

Taking inspiration from the signature shoes of LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and Kevin Durant, the new collection of hats respects the heritage of the game combined with the stories from the players themselves. Nike's first-ever hat was designed for runners (like most of the company's products back then) in the 1970s.

Get a closer look at the hats above and check out the entire collection over at Nike.
