The Kansas City Chiefs’ Travis Kelce isn’t just the best tight end in the NFL. He’s one of the most stylish athletes in all of sports, according to Sports Illustrated.
Jamie Lisanti released the third annual edition of the “Fashionable 50” list Tuesday, and Kelce made the list for the first time. A panel of seven “style experts,” including SI’s most fashionable athlete of 2016, Victor Cruz, vote upon the list.
Here is what Kelce offered up to SI:
FAVORITE ITEM OF CLOTHING: “Nike Air MAG ‘Marty McFly’ from the movie Back to the Future. I’m a huge sneaker collector and when I got drafted in the NFL the ‘self-lacing’ shoes were my first purchase! Back to the Future was one of my favorite movies as a kid and they raised funds for a great cause, The Michael J Fox Foundation.”
FAVORITE DESIGNERS: “Mike Amiri and Virgil Abloh of Off-White. I really appreciate the American designers and the bar that they have set for the future of fashion. Amiri has made jeans that are slim fitting but stretchy and comfortable, unlike the past. Plus they make a 38” waist so I can actually fit in them, where as most top designers stop at a 36”. Off-White and Virgil Abloh have put together something special and it seems like every piece they put out is something you haven’t seen before. Similar to Mike Amiri, Off-White accommodates for the big fellas too and has made a stamp in being oversized but still looking great and not awkward.”
STYLE IDOLS AND INSPIRATIONS: “Deion ‘Prime Time’ Sanders and Ric Flair. Both had the fun personality to go with infamous style, which attracted me at a young age. ‘You look good, you play good’ (Sanders) and ‘Stylin’ and profilin’ (Flair) really resonate with me when I think of why I dress the way I do.”
