Throwback Thursday With Zubaz [21 Photos]

In 1988, Michael Hegstrend and Joseph Laurinaitis, better known to wrestling fans as the Road Warriors and, later, the Legion of Doom, brought their idea for comfortable workout pants to bodybuilders Dan Stock and Bob Truax. Zubaz was born. In the late 80s and early 90s, Zubaz designs for professional sports teams became extremely popular with athletes and fans alike. But like any fad, it wouldn’t last forever. By the late 90s, the company was bankrupt. Dan and Bob bought back the company and since 2007, Zubaz has been back in business, popular with both nostalgic fans and professional athletes who wore the pants as kids.
