While Wallace is best known as a pioneer NASCAR pilot, he is much more than a pioneer on the circuit. This special edition collection was influenced by life off the trail where he spends time as an avid photographer, outdoor enthusiast and everyday adventurer. Working with Columbia’s design team, Wallace constructed each piece in the collection with form and function, performance and comfort, style and substance in mind.

“For me, being a pioneer while breaking down barriers and making our sport more inclusive has always been a goal,” said Bubba Wallace. ‘The Bubba Wallace collection, in collaboration with Columbia Sportswear, achieves these same goals from a sartorial point of view. The line is different; it’s bold, it stands out, while ensuring you’re comfortable in your elements. When you are comfortable, whether in your skin or your clothes, nothing is out of reach. I’m grateful for Columbia Sportswear and the ability to collaborate with them on that line, and I look forward to growing with them on and off the track.

As a nod to Wallace’s 23XI racing team, the collection features pops of red and black for striking effect. Gold accents on the zippers and logo add a touch of royalty to the collection and epitomize Bubba’s winning mentality.
