In honor of Father’s Day this weekend on Sunday, June 19 (Pssst! If you need a last minute gift, check out our Father’s Day Gift Guide!), we scrolled through Instagram to find the most stylish athlete dads. Not only are these guys dotting fathers, they manage to excel in the sports department and act as positive role models while doing it. When they’re not in their soccer, baseball, basketball, swimming, or polo uniforms, these 11 athletic dads always bring their style A game. Check out some of their best looks below.

David Beckham

Anyone else excited about The Roses release tonight ?? Cannot wait 📀💿

David Beckham isn’t your typical soccer dad. Nope. He’s much cooler. The shades, the hat, the tattoos, the graphic t-shirts—he’s got cool dad style down pat. Copy his look for a laid-back Father’s Day celebration.

LeBron James

NY to the Garden a few weeks back! #SomethingSimple #StriveForGreatness

Cleveland Cavaliers player LeBron James’ polished style is on point. We love his trench coat look for a night out at the theatre.

Cristiano Ronaldo

On the field, Cristiano Ronaldo rocks a jersey and cleats, but in real life he cleans up nicely in all-white ensembles like this one made up of a tailored jacket, relaxed trousers, and elegant loafers.

Michael Phelps

This will be swim champ Michael Phelps’ very first Father’s Day celebration as he recently welcomed his new baby boy Boomer into the world. Phelps’ denim on denim look is perfect for a new dad who just wants to feel comfortable but still look good.

Dwyane Wade

Just me and my Girlfriend!

Miami Heat basketball player Dwayne Wade has major style and he’s not afraid to show it. His Instagram feed is filled with his stylish ensembles like this grey suit paired with a printed green tie.

Stephen Curry

Basketball playing dad Stephen Curry proves style doesn’t have to be flashy to make a statement. Sometimes a good set of basics like his crisp white shirt, black pants, and nude-colored boots are all you need to make a killer outfit.

Yasiel Puig

We’re digging Los Angeles Dodger player Yasiel Puig’s travel outfit. It has a dressy feel to it with the collared shirt and shiny shoes, but the jeans keep it looking casual.

Lionel Messi

Feliz día amor, te amamos.

This soccer star is all about comfort when he’s chasing his little ones around. His dad-on-duty look consists of a hat, t-shirt, and jeans. And, clearly the style jeans run in the family—literally! Look how cute his kids look in matching jeans and Superman sweaters.

Jermaine Jones

Let's dance my sweetheart

Here’s a rad dad with a unique sense of style. Soccer player Jermaine Jones doesn’t follow trends—he starts them. Check out his fantastic floral sweatshirt. And by the looks of it, his little girl is growing up to be quite the fashionista herself.

David Ortiz

When he’s not dressed in his baseball gear, Boston Red Sox player David Ortiz likes to dress to the nines in an all-black-everything outfit. And he knows how to accessorize too. Check out his blingy watch.

Nacho Figueras

Suave, handsome style is pretty much an effortless thing for Argentine polo player Nacho Figueras. It’s no wonder he moonlights as a Ralph Lauren model.
