5 Must-Own Items for New Orleans Saints Fans

Here are five great ways for New Orleans fans to show their Saints pride.

New Orleans is a town where faith, food and football freely mix. Nowhere is that combination more pronounced than on the gridiron. For two decades following their inception into the NFL, the New Orleans Saints struggled to field a winning team, but the fans’ faith rarely wavered.

In 2009, the long journey to a championship was finally completed when the Saints won their first Super Bowl – a much-needed victory for a region that coped with the devastation of Hurricane Katrina only a few years before.

While we await the next Super Bowl run, here are five items perfect for New Orleans Saints fans.

Saints Slippers

Saints slippers
Featuring dense foam construction and a no-slip bottom, these sneakers are like walking on pillows. Amazon

If these sneakers look familiar, you probably caught a glimpse of them on TV’s Shark Tank. They’re available in children and adult sizes and have versions for all NFL teams (though we know you’ll do the right thing and order the Saints!)

Saints Folding Chair

New Orleans Gold and Black Folding Chair
This collapsible chair can accommodate up to 250 pounds and features cup holders for each arm rest. Amazon

It’s hot down Louisiana way – best to save your strength while tailgating by planting yourself in this Saints tailgating chair. Let someone bring the red beans and rice to you!

New Orleans Throw Blanket

NFL "12th Man" Plush Rachel Throw Blanket
This plush blanket – known for its rich, non-fading colors – measures 60 by 80 inches. Amazon

With the Mercedes-Benz Superdome providing year-round comfort, this throw blanket is best saved for road games or the couch back home. By the way, did you know that even though the Saints began play in the NFL in 1967, they didn’t have a winning record for a season until 1987? That’s probably a trivia fact that doesn’t get bantered around a lot in the French Quarter.

Saints Adjustable Hat

NFL Men's OTS Challenger Adjustable Hat
The hat is made of garment washed cotton twill for the worn-in look. An adjustable strap makes it one size fits all. Amazon

It looks like this hat is old enough to have seen Archie Manning scrambling for his life – pretty impressive considering the QB left the Saints back in ’82. Relax, Saints fans – that soft look with the curved visor is just what the manufacturer intended. Wear it to the playoffs this year with confidence.

Saints Apron and Chef’s Hat

NFL Chef Hat and Apron Set
It’s a one-size-fits-all set, but a few bowls of jambalaya could put that to the ultimate test. Amazon

There isn’t a food city we enjoy more than New Orleans. The oysters, crawfish, po’ boys, Muffaletta sandwiches and even those Lucky Dogs they serve from carts along the French Quarter. Tailgating meals in this town are a feast so keep yourself clean and the hot sauce far from your skin with this apron and chef’s hat.
