Bespectacled ‘ballers adding lots of style to substance

Whether you like it or not, many do (my husband) – some don’t (me), football is dominating television and media right now.

My god, it will continue for the next how many weeks?

Anyway, it’s a good job I can shoe-horn in my own congenital passion. Eyewear. Fashionable, desirable, game-changing, individual and, ahem, football friendly (if only for watching).

So, here are our top five footballing fashionistas…

  • Cristiano Ronaldo, the Portuguese striker, has clothing brand CR7, boot deals and fragrance lines but has yet to launch an eyewear brand. Surprising, considering his penchant for specs be it sunnies or prescription eyewear. Steal his style in TOM FORD aviators TF 0541 Black.
  • French International and Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has shown his flamboyant style at many an awards ceremony. Get his look in handmade frame “Benny’ by Japanese brand Yellows Plus.
  • Premier League Golden Glove award winner and Spanish goalkeeper David de Gea is always seen sporting (man bun aside) a classic gold aviator. We love these Tom Ford Gold.
  • Lionel Messi needs no introduction, even to me, and his trophy cabinet speaks for itself. Off duty Messi has been spotted in Rayban Tortoisehell rounders.
  • No footballer list is complete without a mention of David Beckham. Despite his trend led clothes style, his sunglass style is always classic, nearly always staying with the Wayfarer look. These Oliver Goldsmith are twist on the design classic, perhaps seen worn by Michael Cane!
If you have a budding footballer who relies on his/her specs to ‘Bend It Like Beckham’ or ‘Blast It Like Lucy Bronze’ pop in for a chat about prescription sports goggles.
Until the next one, Fay.
