Top Clothing Brands Owned By Professional Athletes

It is common to see professional athletes that turn into entrepreneurs building their business empires, and the most common choice is making their own clothing line. There are few reasons behind this decision, such as:

  • Athletes have a big fan base that will be loyal to their brand
  • Profit margins on clothing stores are high
  • The clothing industry provides enough space for everyone

No wonder why successful athletes try to reinvest their wealth into clothing businesses or try to collaborate with some of the most popular clothing brands that earn them a percentage.

Let’s jump down to the list and find out which professional athletes have their clothing brands.

Russel Westbrook

Russell is known for his unique style both on and off the court, so the five-time NBA All-Star has a lot of passion for fashion and it manifested into building his own fashion line.

Russel started his brand back in 2017 called Honor The Gift, and it is an athleisure driven clothing line that features some of the everyday essentials.

Lonzo Ball

Lonzo Ball is under focus recently in the latest NBA trade rumors and news, after being linked with the Hawks. However, despite being a very on demand basketball start, Lonzo has other interests.

He started his own clothing line that turns out to be very successful. He created the Big Baller Brand which is a clothing label full of casual samples such as hoodies, T-shirts, and shoes. 

It is a very successful brand that makes a lot of profit every year.

David Beckham

David Beckham is probably one of the most-stylish soccer players in history, and alongside his wife Victoria Beckham which is a fashion designer, David managed to expand his personal brand into apparel. 

The soccer player had a couple of collaborations throughout the years with big brands in the fashion industry such as H&M on a range of trunks, tanks, and boxers. 

Additionally, he made a five-year agreement with the British fashion brand Kent & Curwen for his first collection that is sold exclusively on their website.

Michael Jordan

Michael Jordan managed to build his Jordan Brand label that dominated the sportswear scene since it was taken by Nike back in 1984

Even though this is a more footwear-focused line that is responsible for building some of the most expensive athletic sneakers of all-time, they are also present in the clothing industry.

LeBron James

It seems like the clothing industry is dominated by successful players from the NBA betting odds, and here we have another NBA star to get a piece of the market. LeBron James decided to follow Jordan’s footsteps and managed to build his own successful signature lineup of apparel and sneakers with Nike.

LeBron’s lineup has a range of men’s and women’s sportswear options that are becoming more and more popular.

Cristiano Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the most popular athletes on social media pages like Instagram, so it is no surprise that the Portuguese soccer player started his own brand. 

Unlike other professional athletes, he started slowly by only making a Ronaldo’s CR7 underwear line, which later expanded into luxurious mend’s shirts, accessories like belts, and denim.

Dwyane Wade

Dwyane Wade was known for his striking pre-game outfits, and photographers waited for hours just to get a glimpse of his outfit so people can talk about it. He used his fame and passion for fashion to build his own fashion line.

Unlike most other NBA players, he decided to abandon the sportswear industry and build something unique. His fashion line is full of luxurious pieces from tie collaboration with The Tie Bar and Dsquared2 exclusive denim wear.

 Final Words

Athletes have just the right ingredients for starting their own store. They have their fan base, a way to advertise their brand, and the money to start. 

No wonder why most of them start to build their clothing empire, and most of them succeed in this fierce industry.
