NFL star Carl Nassib was sharply outfitted with boyfriend Søren Dahl to celebrate the Tampa Bay Buccaneers‘ first 2023 game in Florida this week. The occasion found the Buccaneers win against the Carolina Panthers by 30 to 24. Dahl posted a photo of the couple on Instagram. “Always Big Boy Season,” he captioned.

The Buccaneers’ outside linebacker and the Danish swimmer posed together in front of Raymond James Stadium prior to the game. For the occasion, Nassib wore a short-sleeved black T-shirt, paired with a monochrome black watch and gray trousers. Dahl, meanwhile, wore Nassib’s team jersey with a set of dark gray shorts, accented by a set of white and deep red Nike Dunk Low Retro sneakers.

When it came to footwear, Nassib laced into a set of sharp On Running sneakers. His $140 Cloud X sneakers included paneled white knit uppers, complete with reflective accents and rounded toes. Squared rubber soles with foam-injected midsoles completed the set with added comfort. Nassib’s pair was complete with black-paneled tongues, thin black laces and On’s monogram in a light gray hue, giving his casual outfit a sporty finish.

Nassib’s shoe style is often casual and athletic. On the red carpet, he can be seen in monochrome sneakers from brands including Gucci. Off-duty, he can also be seen in sneakers from brands including Adidas, as well as Nike cleats while on the field. Historically, Nassib previously made history in June 2021 when he came out as gay — being the first active NFL athlete to do so. The athlete also launched rainbow-colored clears in partnership with the Trevor Project for the NFL’s My Cause My Cleats fundraiser in 2021.
