The SOULBUDDY Story

Not only are SOULBUDDY hats stylish and versatile, they also have a backstory and a mission rooted at the intersection between family togetherness and the spirit of adventure. In today’s blog post, we’ll be sharing with you the story behind SOULBUDDY. 


Born in sunny Santa Cruz, California, SOULBUDDY is an innovative, personable brand of snapback hats handcrafted with the family in mind. Our family loves going on summer adventures together and soaking up the California sunshine. So when our good friends in Germany set out to design stylish matching snapback hats for kids and adults alike, we ordered our first set - one for Mom, Dad, and little Leo.


Much to our delight, Leo loved palling around in our matching hats. Not only were the hats versatile and stylish, but also combined sun safety with a minimalistic design. Upon the first wear, you could tell that these hats were created with love and intention. We were all in! From hikes to the beach to the woods and everywhere in between, we wore our matching snapback hats on family road trips all across the USA. Everywhere we went, people would say - “We love your matching hats!” 


From that moment on, we went from supporting our friends to being devoted fans of the high-quality, comfy fit. Now, we’re bringing these fashionable, durable hats from our family to yours. Available in toddler, child, and adult sizes, our SOULBUDDY hats are the perfect adventure accessory for the whole family. Plus, our selection of hats now ranges from traditional snapback hats to trucker hat styles. There’s sure to be a matching hat style for everyone in your life to wear proudly!
