BUFFALOVE:  Zubaz was created in 1988 when Bob Truax and Dan Stock developed a comfortably baggy pair of shorts with an elastic waistband. They hoped to make a pair of shorts that would stretch and expand with the body during a workout. In a short time, the shorts became wildly popular in the United States. The Zubaz company sold $100 million worth of products in 1991 alone. The company slogan is “Dare to be Different.” Buffalonians know and love the original zebra print, but it hasn’t been much appreciated elsewhere: In a 1993 survey in Inside Sports magazine, Zubaz finished third in the voting for “Worst Thing to Happen in Sports” that year. Ahead of it were the retirement of Michael Jordan and the death of wrestler Dino Bravo.

The original Zubaz company went bankrupt in 1996 and Truax and Stock bought back the trademark rights. In 2007, Zubaz resurfaced, offering a limited production release of the original classic Zubaz patterns. In 2014 the brand fully resurfaced with a wider selection on its internet storefront. The revived brand opened its first storefront in Fashion Outlets of Niagara Falls, a mall in Niagara Falls, NY, in 2016  Zubaz chose Western New York as its first brick-and-mortar location – since as we all know – the brand is loved by the Bills Mafia everywhere.
