Dick’s Sporting Goods has been my go-to place for sporting equipment and gear.
I have purchased free weights, a bicycle, a basketball and goal, and MMA gear (I was training to be a fighter, but an injury derailed that plan). Not to mention all of the youth sports equipment I’ve bought for my kids over the years.
However, I never thought that Dick’s would be a place where I could find fashionable clothing that matched my personal style.
Of course, I knew about their wide selection of popular athletic brands such as Nike, adidas, and Under Armour, but I’ve now become a fan of their VRST Brand, and so should you.
Dick’s also has some of the most coveted sneakers that you can find on their Sneaker Release Calendar.
Dick’s VRST Brand of Men’s Clothing
VRST is Dick’s Sporting Goods private men’s athletic apparel brand built for modern, active men.
The clothing and accessories, which seamlessly blend performance and style, are designed with premium fabrics that flex and fit perfectly.
Additional functionality includes hidden pockets, towel loops, zoned ventilation, reflectivity, plus advanced technologies, like moisture-wicking and odor control.
Some of my favorite VRST pieces are the Limitless 5 Pocket Slim Fit Pants, Pique Performance Polo, and the duffle bag.
VRST Limitless 5-Pocket Pants
I like clothing that is versatile and allows me to dress it up or down. These VRST Limitless 5 Pocket Slim Fit Pants fit the bill.
They are fitted through the hip and thigh and finished with a tapered design below the knee. The moisture-wicking technology and 2-way stretch construction keep me comfortable all day as I transition from work to grabbing drinks with friends.
These pants are available in a variety of colors to fit your style.
VRST Pique Polo
Performance meets style with the VRST Pique Polo. It is a perfect companion to my VRST pants.
The 4-way stretch construction offers a comfortable fit, while moisture-wicking and UV protection technologies keep me dry and safe while in the sun.
It is also available in a variety of colors.
VRST Duffle Bag
I travel a lot and I need luggage that is durable and portable.
The VRST duffle bag is exactly what I need.
Made with luxe vegan material, this bag has a spacious inner pocket, a convenient front pocket for stashing small valuables, and an adjustable/removable crossbody strap.
It also doubles as a gym bag.
How to Shop for VRST
If you prefer to shop in-store, Dick’s Sporting Goods has a special VRST section stocked with the latest styles.
Dick’s Has the Latest Drops for Sneakerheads
I love sneakers.
I still remember my first pair of adidas Shell Toe sneakers which were made popular by the legendary hip-hop group Run-DMC. Their song “My Adidas” had me and other teenagers lining up to get a pair of these shoes.
My Adidas and me close as can be– Run -DMC
We make a mean team, my Adidas and me
We get around together, we down forever
And we won’t be mad when caught in bad weather
While Run-DMC liked to wear theirs with no shoelaces, I preferred to wear mine with different colored fat shoelaces.
Today, I still lean toward classic sneakers and Dick’s has a great selection in-store and online.
Dick’s Sneaker Release Calendar
I must admit, getting the latest sneakers can be difficult. Although there are many sites and apps available to purchase sneakers, the hottest styles or often snagged by bots and resellers.
Dick’s Sporting Goods Sneaker Release Calendar helps you plan your sneaker purchases and gives you a better chance of actually getting the shoes you want.
The calendar tells you the date and time when the sneakers will drop and lets you set a reminder on your personal Apple, Google, or Yahoo calendar.
On launch day, log into your Dick’s Sporting Goods account and claim your fresh pair of sneakers.
If you prefer to try your luck in-store, you must follow these steps:
- Visit dicksportinggoods.com to find the shoe you want and the release date.
- Locate the Dick’s Sporting Goods store closest to you that will have the shoe in stock.
- Visit the store before the launch date and provide your name, photo ID, email, and desired size.
- A Dick’s Sporting Goods Teammate will confirm whether your desired shoe size is available and provide you with a wristband to reserve your shoes.
- A limited quantity of wristbands are available and will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. Limit one wristband per person.
- On launch day, bring your photo ID and wristband to the store to make your purchase.
I managed to score a pair of Lebron XXs by shopping in-store.
