With the exception of painting faces, wearing foam fingers, and lighting brush fires in the shape of mascots, the best way to signal allegiance at a college football game is to wear a logoed T-shirt. Proclaim your team preference with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Miami Hurricanes apparel and accessories at allCanes in Coral Gables.
Hurricanes mavens can sate their fan boy or fan girl needs at allCanes with gear from brands such as Nike, Zephyr, New Era, and Ashworth. Forewarn an encroaching Gators fan that you will not be going to their birthday party with a logo-bearing hat ($15.99+), T-shirt ($9.99+), or fabric flag ($13.99+). Flip-flops ($18.99–$22.99) keep feet stylishly ventilated while allowing easy access for itches. School and office supplies personalize weekday abodes, and gear geared toward pets and kids ($7.99+) allows proud parents to festoon little ones in something other than the previous night's leftovers.
The siren call of allCanes' massive collection of Miami Hurricanes clothing, memorabilia, and accessories entices not only fans to wander its spaces, but also pro athletes of the past and present. Since converting from a sporting goods store to a Hurricanes-only shop in the mid 80's, football greats have brought family and friends to outfit them in green and orange. NFL players, such as Willis McGahee and Ken Dorsey, walked between racks of gear where greats including Warren Sapp, Ray Lewis, and Jessie Armstead once signed autographs.
While big name players may draw crowds, it's allCanes' stock that wins the day. From the front door to the back wall, every inch of wall, shelf, and rack space teems with Hurricanes apparel from brands such as Nike and My U. Hurricanes baseball caps line racks set in between panoramic shots of the stadium and beanies, while racks hold popular fan t-shirts, such as "The U Invented Swagger." In all, around 1,000 UM-related items call the shop home during football season.
