Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, Celtics guard Kyrie Irving, and Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman wow the crowds in uniform — and apparently on their days off, too.

The trio of Boston athletes was included in Sports Illustrated‘s third annual list of most fashionable athletes, released Tuesday.

While Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. was named “the most fashionable athlete of 2018,” the other 49 on this year’s list were grouped into categories.

Brady nabbed a spot in the “Timeless Style” group as one of six male athletes that have mastered “smart and subtle looks,” according to SI.

Irving was one of eight “Sneaker Heads,” who SI says flaunt “killer kicks on the regular.” Together with Nike, Irving designed both the “Kyrie 3” and “Kyrie 4” — two of the most-worn sneakers by NBA players last season, according to ESPN.


Raisman, a Needham native, was named one of four “Difference Makers.” SI wrote that these athletes are “encouraging change and sending a message with their style.” Raisman has been an advocate for body positivity and survivors of sexual abuse.

2018’s 50 honorees included 13 women and 37 men. Basketball was the most represented sport among the athletes, with 16 NBA players and two WNBA players on the list. 

The list was developed by a panel of seven experts: Thomas Faison Agency CEO Rachel Johnson, People Deputy Style Director Sharon Kanter, former NFL player Victor Cruz, KMCME visual architect Kesha McLeod, InStyle Executive Features Editor Sarah Cristobal, athlete stylist Brandon Williams, and The Parker Mays Collective menswear stylist and Creative Director Courtney Mays.
