This is a belt for true Wildcat fans. The term Wildcat was used to describe the players for Kentucky after they beat Illinois in football way back in 1909. The term is said to be coined by Commandant Carbuiser, who was the chief of the military department at the time. After the game he stated that the team had "fought like wildcats" and the school adopted the nickname. While most SEC schools are known for their prowess on the football field (we are not saying Kentucky is bad, just not that good) Kentucky is known for their formidable basketball teams. Their basketball teams have eight national championships and they became the first college basketball team to make it to 2000 wins in 2009.

It does not matter if you wear this belt to a football game or a basketball game or to a track and field meet, all that matters is that when you are wearing this belt, you are supporting the University of Kentucky in some way shape or form. So basically what we are saying is that if you are a current student, alumni or just a big Kentucky fan, you need this belt.

The History of Sperry Boat Shoes: The Story of a Dog, A Guy, and a Vision

It all began on a snowy winter day in Connecticut back in 1935. A man by the name of Paul Sperry (yes, the same Sperry you’re thinking of) was playing with his Cocker Spaniel in the snow, and, according to Connecticut historians, became infatuated with his dog’s ability to run and play on ice without slipping.
