ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — A few years ago, I wrote a short profile of Oklahoma City guard Russell Westbrook for GQ magazine. At the time, Westbrook was just starting to make a name for himself off the court as a fearless dresser, a trend that has continued unabated.
As part of the interview I did with Russ, I asked him about his penchant for wearing glasses…
GQ: But you had to know those red glasses were going to get some attention.
Russell Westbrook: Well, see, I didn’t. I don’t really pay no mind to it. I kind of just see it, and I get it. If I like it, I’ll wear it regardless of what’s going on or if somebody says something or not.
GQ: When you wear those glasses, do they have lenses in them or no?
Russell Westbrook: No, no, nine times out of ten, no. Some of them do, but not most of them, no.
GQ: Do you need glasses?
Russell Westbrook: Nah. I have the best vision.
And now, regardless of your vision, you too can wear glasses just for the style of it, as Russell Westbrook has introduced his own line of sunglasses. Westbrook has started with ten different styles at Westbrook Frames. They are high quality, and prices run from $95 up.
Perhaps they are more fashion-forward than you’re used to, but maybe they’re exactly what you need to look good. As Westbrook himself might ask, “Why not?”
