Sports Illustrated Names the 50 Most Fashionable Athletes in the World

It’s a far cry from the Swimsuit Issue.

Over the years we’ve grown to trust Sports Illustrated for its authoritative takes on sports and women in swimsuits. Now the venerable magazine gives us a new definitive ranking of something we didn’t even realize we needed: The world’s most fashionable athletes

And the winner is…Victor Cruz of the New York Giants! Cruz spoke to the magazine about his fashion sense and said he pays as much attention to how he looks on the field as off. 

“I make sure I’m always cleaned up, my jersey’s never un-tucked, my socks are always pulled up and my spikes always look well kept, neat and new,” he said.

Problem is, he hasn’t been able to show off that on-the-field crispness much the last couple seasons. Injuries have limited him to only six games. No wonder he’s got so much time to perfect his street clothes. 

Along with the above, SI released three other Fashion 50 covers featuring the OKC Thunder’s Russell Westbrook, the Denver Broncos’ Von Miller and the New York Liberty’s Swin Cash.
