A Boutique Athlete

































On the field Adrian Wilson is considered to be one of the NFL’s top players; he was rated last season as the best cover safety in the NFL, and has been to the Pro Bowl fives times.  While also an exceptional athlete, one of Wilson’s off-the-field interests lies in fashion.  Even though his business manager, family, and friends were not exactly enthusiastic about  his idea for a new venture, Wilson decided to open a boutique shoe store in Scottsdale, Arizona.  I had the chance to photograph him for ESPN the Magazine at his store, HighPoint, and was encouraged to see such a successful athlete pursuing a second passion, despite having already achieved such a high level of success in football.
