In football, it's not often that we find ourselves fascinated with off-pitch style. At Barcelona FC, the current La Liga leaders, the sport's best-dressed baller is setting the standard for footballing style. All eyes on Jules Kounde, bringing the heat on and off of the pitch.

Unlike basketball, where players' pre-match style dominates social media just as much as the theatrics that unfolds on the court, footballers' style is rarely given a second glance.

There have, of course, been a handful of style icons in the beautiful game. Those that excel in dress quickly rise to the surface, ending up snatched up by runways and magazines that long for a piece of the pie.

It feels like it's been quite some time since a footballer truly captivated fans through their personal style. We've had moments from Marcus Rashford, Bukayo Saka, and Mason Mount, but none have reached the peaks achieved by Hector Bellerin during his time at Arsenal.

Bellerin caught the attention of the late Virgil Abloh, who brought the star on board to walk the runway for Louis Vuitton.

Now, the baton has been passed to Barcelona FC and the French national team's Jules Kounde, who's consistently knocked it out of the park with his 'fits.

Switching between center-back and right-back for Barca in La Liga, helping the team push a strong lead on the league table, Kounde's yet to miss where his looks are concerned.

While pieces from Amiri, Ferragamo, and Prada make regular appearances within the star's rotation, what really sets his style apart from the rest is his taste for up-and-coming, lowkey brands from across the world.

It's hard to say what his best look is when there are just so many bangers to choose from, but one thing is unarguably clear; Jules Kounde is the best-dressed footballer in the world.
