Wallace is a Chicago native and serial entrepreneur. He talked about how he came up with the idea of using sports textured fabric integrated into apparel. While watching an NFL football game, it came to him: “So many people love sports but where are the products that reflect the synergy of apparel and the fabric which the game is centered on… and what about Basketball as well as other sports?” As he pondered, he sketched out the Football Helmet Hat and the ideas started to flow. “This is the ultimate disruptive model that will appeal to millions, including casual sports fans, women, and children,” says Wallace.

SportsAddict Apparel is looking to raise funds to realize its growth potential. Using their authentic aesthetic, the company has produced the Football Helmet Hat, visors, and caps as well as backpacks and duffle bags to debut their brand.
