Buy Rising NBA Star Shai Gilgeous-Alexander's Favorite Basics

This 22-year-old shooting guard often dresses in head-to-toe designer, but a few of his favorite items are far easier to find.


Shai-Gilgeous Alexander is a star on and off the court. The 22-year-old NBA guard — who first played for Los Angeles Clippers and now for the Oklahoma City Thunder — has doubled his points per game totals from two seasons ago, propelling him to soon-to-be perennial All-Star status. And while crafty crossovers and acrobatic layups dominate his highlight reel, he's been the purveyor of plenty of eye-popping outfits, too.

He treats nightly tunnel entrances like the runway, relying on paparazzi pictures to recap the night's look; other times he captures his own fit pics — always with the hashtag #dontmindmydrip — on Instagram; he's even a part-time model for luxury label Louis Vuitton and well-known brands Levi's and Foot Locker.

He certainly favors the former — statement pieces with astronomical suggested retail prices done by high-profile designers — but, to celebrate Levi's 501 Day, he broke down a few of his easier-to-find essentials for us, which, of course, includes the brand's signature jeans.
