A lot has changed since Wooter Apparel first launched as a Staten Island sports tech start-up in 2014, but one of the many consistent bright spots has been the chance to share some of the success stories going on around sports through the people, teams, leagues, and organizations that rock the customized gear from Wooter Apparel. It’s those same stories that have helped Wooter build and grow a brand rooted in community — from New York, to flourishing in a global market, all while embracing a company-wide approach to giving back.
These are just some of the stories making news around Wooter Apparel...

Wooter Apparel Teams With Aquille Carr On Fresh Customized Gear
This basketball story really has come full circle in a number of ways. About five years ago while living in Europe and covering international basketball, one of the prominent stories at the time was about this ultra-talented kid out of Baltimore known as “Crimestopper” and his plans to jump overseas to play professionally. Headlines were nothing new for Aquille Carr. He made them as a freshman at Patterson Highand and in 2010 after averaging 32 points, six assists and five rebounds to lead Patterson (25-2) to Baltimore City and Class 4A North region titles and a trip to the state title game. The following year, Carr was named the Baltimore Sun All-Metro boys basketball Player of the Year, the same year ESPN chose him as the 2011 High School Basketball Player of the Year. Two years later, Carr was officially a professional — a journey that has spanned these last five years including stops in the NBA G-League, Canada, and most recently another G-League opportunity with the Washington Wizards G-League affiliate the Capital City Go-Go. Yet what’s most refreshing about Carr’s story is how has kept his Baltimore and Brunson League roots alive. We can respect that, especially when Aquille Carr takes time to represent with some of his own fresh Wooter Apparel prior to his G-League workout!
