Until a couple years ago, a Google search for stylish football players would bring up results of soccer players from Europe. That is no longer the case. With the rise of menswear and style blogs featuring the most fire jawnz around the world, men have upgraded their fits and have more confidence in dressing better. Now when you search those same keywords, NFL stars show up alongside soccer players in the results. Thankfully, the style of American football players is no longer stuck in a frozen tundra of six-button suits during draft day, and dad jeans off the field.
Some good examples of players around the league who are killing it off the field are Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown or New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman. And even with a strict uniform policy, one that even prohibits what color laces they can wear with their cleats, players still find a way to win style points on the field.
Though we would like to highlight who’s most improved since being drafted, we’re going to do something different. In the spirit of the upcoming Super Bowl 50, we’re going to highlight some of the more stylish players who made it to this year’s match. We already know they have what it takes to get to a championship, but these players know what it takes to earn street style cred as well.
There are a few faces you won’t recognize, since, you know, they wear helmets all the time, but there are also some superstars who are household names at this point. Take a look at the Most Stylish Football Players in Super Bowl 50.
