Veteran Pro Bowl running back Melvin Gordon


has partnered with 


, a leading sports retailer, for

new Melvin Gordon customizations

 – available now at all retail locations with a Custom Zone by Lids. Gordon is also working with Lids’ creative team on his own hat design, set to be released later this year and will be featured in a series of branded content.

“I have been a member of the #LidsLoyal since I was a kid,” says Gordon. “Going to the mall and getting a new hat from Lids has always been a special experience. To be able to partner with such an iconic retailer and ultimately create my own custom hat design is really special to me.”

Gordon – the first NFL player Lids has formally partnered with – initially teamed up with the retailer in October 2019, when the football star joined the company as a Store Associate and its first #HAThlete in a viral campaign called 

Employee of the Month


“Melvin Gordon is an incredible athlete on the football field, but we are more excited to partner with

him because of his longtime affinity for headwear and for our brand,” says Tom Ripley, chairman and chief executive officer, Lids Sports Group. “We decided to make Melvin the first NFL player Lids partnered with because, among other things, he kept sharing pictures of himself at Lids on social media. He’s clearly passionate about our business and has been a member of the Lids loyalty program since he was a child. We are eager to share that passion with our customers through his customizations, hat design and our content.”
