As part of the “geek-chic” fashion phenomenon, NBA players have made thick-rimmed glasses the league’s most popular off-court accessory. In the NFL, it is Von Miller who is associated with his signature specs. Unlike the sports pros who wear lense-less frames solely as a style statement, Miller’s glasses serve a dual purpose: fashion and function. The Denver Broncos linebacker recently caught up with Esquire magazine at Silver Lining Opticians, as he shopped for new specs. The SoHo, NYC based boutique houses unique, vintage designs and is the shop of choice for Miller. He was first introduced to the store by stylist, Rachel Johnson, while searching for frames for the NFL Draft.

During his visit to Silving Lining Opticians with Esquire, Miller spoke his eyewear collection, his new gig with AXE skin care and personal style. Below are a few excerpts and for the full piece, read on here.

ESQ: Tell me more about your personal style. Any favorite designers? VM: My style is unique. I mean I would say that I have always been into fashion, even in college, but never had access to it like I do now. But it’s kinda like with the frames, I have jumped into it head first ever since being exposed to it. I love shoes, obviously Adidas — which I’m wearing now. But also designers like Balenciaga, Rick Owens, Givenchy, Saint Laurent …
