A blog spot on pop culture way back in 2009 revealed the timeless use of such bracelets though it was associated in various terms. The blog cited that people have literally made use of these rubbers to bind broccoli and asparagus in the market to be their so-called bracelets. It did not last long though because it gets stuck in one’s hair, arm and it breaks easily. Then in early 90s rubber bracelet once again emerged with the pop culture among rock bands, a few NBA players, and some institutions but due to the negative connotation associated to it (such as “sex bands”), it disappeared in the market as parents called for the eradication of said products. This identity though of rubber bracelets was found out as a mere urban legend and such has nothing to do with the colors associated to it as well.

And to continue, in the later part of 1990s NIKE introduced this product once more,rebranding them as ballers – which are given to their players for NBA and was customized with the team’s color. As ballers, only a few sports enthusiasts can afford it until it re-emerged again as “statement bands” with a few saying like “I love you and Livestrong.” In relation to such ballers, people may have recalled Lebron James who fondly used this in and out of the court whereas “the statement band” was associated with Lance Armstrong when he kicked off cancer awareness. Since then, the evolution of bracelets was unstoppable especially when various charitable organizations followed after Armstrong’s lead. Thus, in 2004 up to the present, bracelets are widely circulated and in demand.
