The One Item You’ll Never Catch Brandin Cooks Wearing off the Field

Wide receiver Brandin Cooks has one goal when he’s picking out his off-the-field outfit: comfort. “As long as I have a pair of nice sneakers on, that are comfortable, I couldn’t really care less about what’s on top,” he says.

We wanted to give Cooks a little help pairing his sneakers with apparel, so we gave him a pair of Reebok Fusion Flexweave shoes and introduced him to stylist Sarah Schussheim.

“Brandin gravitated toward some really awesome pieces, like bomber jackets and joggers,” shares Schussheim. “I put him in a plaid shirt – which I don't think he would have picked out for himself – and he ended up looking amazing.”

And while he can be swayed into plaid, there’s one item that will never hang in Cooks’ closet: a romper. “I guess that’s a thing nowadays, but that’s one thing you would never catch me wearing.”

Athleisure is the perfect fusion of comfort and style, and though Cooks may not be picky in his clothing choices, the way he plans an outfit around a sneaker remains on trend.

“It’s all about being casual but not sloppy,” explains Schussheim. “In the end, this trend makes it pretty easy to dress around your sneaker.”
