Brittney Griner is breaking down another barrier by being the first openly-gay athlete to be endorsed by Nike, but don’t think they’re going to salt her game, she has already made up her mind to model more of an androgynous style of clothing.

ESPN’s Kate Fagan revealed that Griner’s contract will allow her to wear clothes branded for men.



Androgynous models are coveted in high-end fashion, but the trend toward gender-neutral clothing has only just begun to reach the sports world, with NBA stars Russell Westbrook and Dwyane Wade blurring the lines in their tight jeans and fitted sweaters.




Since opening up about her sexuality in an interview with USA TODAY Sports, she’s continued to create her own path in the WNBA. In her first game, she totaled as many career dunks as any other player in WNBA history.

It’s surprising Nike didn’t come up with the idea sooner. On the other hand, it would be difficult to imagine a male sports star that could pull off gouchos and a pair of slingbacks.

Here’s hoping to a long, fashionable WNBA career, Brittney. Perhaps she can get a WNBA fashion war started.
