The 2016 ESPYS took place at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
The annual event celebrates icons, congratulates champions and recognizes those who have overcome amazing odds. The event is also considered the biggest sports fashion show of the year, as star athletes don their very best ensembles for the elegant evening. It’s an competitive match up between athletes to be crown the “Best Dressed Athlete” of the evening.
That’s what were here for, to do the crowning right? We couldn’t select one winner, so we decided to highlight The Best Dressed Athletes at the 2016 ESPYS as a whole.

This year’s showing began with an powerful message NBA superstars Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul, Dwyane Wade, and LeBron James, who issued a call to promote social change, which comes in the wake of recent shootings in Dallas, Orlando and Baton Rouge.

OKC Thunder up-and-coming guard Cameron Payne has a personal style to keep your eyes on. His ESPYS look was actually one of our favorites. Absolutely loved the rosy-salmon colored suit, which is a perfect option for the summer season. Cameron wore a custom design by Adriaen Black, and Del Toro velvet slippers.
When it comes to fit.. Tristan Thompson was among the top, his costume was tailored to perfection. Do yourself a favor guys, go to your tailor, and just show him or her Tristan’s ESPYS look and say “I want my suit to look exactly like this.”
