A hipster is defined by Merriam-Webster as,"a person who is unusually aware of and interested in new and unconventional patterns." There are undoubtedly a number of athletes who fit this bill perfectly, and these 15 athletes specifically could certainly pass as being hipsters.
Wade has become a fashion trendsetter for NBA players, as he consistently wears outfits that make some people cringe but make others jealous.
Subban is the type of guy who stirs things up yet makes tons of fans in the process, and the Montreal Canadiens defenseman has transcended the way young players in the NHL look at veterans.
Longoria's fashion and pop culture presence may pass for average in some leagues, but in MLB the guy is a trendsetter.
Stoudemire brought back the trend of athletes wearing huge glasses while competing, and he also seems to be always wearing cutting-edge fashion out of the hipster areas of New York City.
Barwin is renowned for being the NFL's No. 1 hipster, as he is constantly riding a bike, wearing the most up-to-date brands of clothes and attending every indie rock concert in sight.
As the best NBA player in the world, LeBron James is naturally a trendsetter on the court. But he has also become one off the court in terms of fashion, branding and overall appearance.
Brady is married to supermodel Gisele Bundchen, and he has clearly used her connections to become one of the forebearers of fashion when it comes to haircuts and clothing style.
Lundqvist has previously been named the most fashionable athlete in the world by GQ, and there is no doubting that he has been a trendsetter amongst NHL players.
Harden wears one of the biggest beards in sports today, and legions of people have followed the Houston Rockets star in growing a massive beard themselves.
Lincecum is arguably the most popular athlete in San Francisco today, which should pretty much cement his status as the Giants' resident hipster.
Neymar has inspired millions of people around the world to get the same haircut that he has, and the Barcelona star is also very fashionable when it comes to clothing style.
Young is affably known as "Swaggy P", which is an ode to the fact that he is a hipster icon amongst Los Angeles Lakers fans.
Braun may be known by many sports fans as a liar and cheater, but he is actually one of the few MLB players who stand on the forefront of fashion trends.
Cruz has become heavily immersed with the Brooklyn hipster with the New York Giants, and he has accepted this mantle with pride.
One can't really dress like more of a hipster than Russell Westbrook, who narrowly edges out Kevin Durant as the biggest hipster on the Oklahoma City Thunder roster.
