As one of DC's biggest heroes, the Flash has been saving the day with his super-speed and  his connection to the Speed Force for decades. And as one of the most recognizable superheroes in the DC Universe and the star of his own TV series, the character has inspired a whole of merchandising and apparel over the years since Barry Allen debuted as the Flash in the 1950s.

Now, here are some of the best pieces of Flash apparel any DC fan can use to show the world who their favorite speedster is.

Flash Backpack


Barry Allen has always been one of the most studious members of the Justice League, tirelessly splitting his time as a forensic scientist for the Central City Police Department and a superhero. As such, it always helps to have a reliable backpack to carry ones notebooks and laptop when on the go.

The officially licensed Flash backpack and laptop bag resembles the Scarlet Speedster's uniform as it appears on The CW series complete with the two-toned red color scheme, white accent stripes and lightning bolt logo. Built for comfort with padded straps and back, the backpack is three and half feet tall and a foot wide, and is designed to fit most laptops and textbooks.

S.T.A.R. Labs T-Shirt

In the Arrowverse, Barry Allen obtains his powers after the particle accelerator in Central City's S.T.A.R. Laboratories facility explodes and bathes him in its irradiated energies and the chemicals of his own forensics lab. Since then, the longtime DC Comics science team has played a major role in the DC TV series helping Barry develop his abilities and inventing tech to help face the growing number of supervillains.

Pop Funk has created a licensed version of the S.T.A.R. Laboratories t-shirt as it appears in the Arrowverse has a simple design and comes features the white S.T.A.R. Labs logo in a variety of colors. Made from 100% cotton, the shirt comes in both men's and women's cuts and high-quality, collectible stickers with the S.T.A.R. Labs and Flash logos for fans to leave their mark.

Flash Socks


More than anything else, speedsters need tough socks to withstand the constant running at supersonic velocities. Even if your're not the Flash, these officially licensed socks might still help you get in-touch with a little piece of the Speed Force.

Created by Bioworld, the official Flash crew socks fit a variety of sizes for men, women, and teens. With a cotton, polyester and spandex blend, the form-fitting socks feature bright red leggings with the Flash logo and border and yellow main body just like Barry Allen's protege Kid Flash. And just like any true superhero's gear, the socks are machine washable.

Flash Bathrobe

Just because the Flash is capable of extraordinary abilities and speeds, comfort still comes at a premium for the speedster. With that in mind, nothing speaks to at home comfort than a supremely soft and wearable bathrobe.

The Flash bathrobe is made of a blend of smooth satin, scarlet fleece, and polyester yellow accents to ensure comfort. Fitting most sizes, the red bathrobe, with its embroidered Flash logos, lets fans lounge around the house while comfortably feeling like the DC superhero.

Flash Ring

Flash Ring


Ever since his debut in 1956's Showcase #4, Barry Allen has secretly stored his Flash costume in a ring bearing the lightning logo, able to be ejected at a moment's notice and changed into with his super-speed before anyone else is the wiser. Recently the Arrowverse incarnation of the character has gained his own costume-containing ring and, now, fans can have their own version of the piece of jewelry.

CrazyCatCos has created a replica of the Flash ring made from a high quality alloy. Although it resembles the ring from DC TV series, this replica does not come included with the Flash's costume concealed inside.
