Jordan Stewart is known in the San Jose Earthquakes locker room for many things, including his fashion sense and, most notably, his shoe collection. The defender, who is enjoying his fourth season with the Quakes, owns 63 pairs of shoes and eight pairs of golf shoes in the U.S. alone, which he organizes by style in his wardrobe at home.
In his native England, the Quakes defender believes he has more than one hundred pairs. Needless to say, he loves shoes.
For one week, Stewart shared with sjearthquakes.com a variety of outfits and shoe wear for post-practice, game days and the Earthquakes’ Annual Wine & Dine event.
For practice on Monday, Stewart sported the adidas NMD in limited edition colors. adidas, which sponsors Stewart, is always coming up with new colors, but the hardest ones to get a hold of, according to Stewart, are the all black or all white ones.
Tuesday at the Golf Course
An off day means a chance to go to the golf course.
“With me, if you see me on the first tee you’d think I was a professional, but then you would see me swing and realize that I am very bad.
“I like wearing a lot of bright clothes, especially with golf. On Instagram I post pictures of me earing rascal gear. It gives me a chance to showcase my personality, which is very bright at times.”
The golf shoes, of course, are also adidas, as they have a lot of colors to choose from.
Wednesday Summer Wear
For the second day of practice Stewart sports the limited edition adidas All-White Ultra Boost with some lightweight trousers and a t-shirt from Kit & Ace. The bag pack is from Unofish, whose owner also owns the Quakes’ PDL affiliate the Burlingame Dragons.
Stewart moved to California from England and has found that the climate and way of life has affected his fashion.
“My outfits here are a bit more summery, where as in England you have all four seasons so you can dress and wear coats,” Stewart said. “Over here, you can wear light coats but you are more limited.
“Being in England, it is much more materialistic. You always wear designer clothes and all that. Since I’ve come out to America, I’ve been able to save more money and keep it more casual.”
Thursday European Influence
Despite the differences in climate and culture, Stewart certainly had European influences in his Thursday outfit. The t-shirt is one of Stewart’s own designs from his former clothing line, Lescott Stewart, which he started with friend and fellow soccer player Joleon Lescott.
The shoes are from the French designer Lanvin.
“You can wear them with shorts or you can wear them more smart casual. That is why I like them.”
Although Stewart has had the Lanvin shoes for three years, they look brand new.
“I like to keep my shoes nice and clean. I have cleaners, little tooth brushes and for white material, I have little erasers that can rub off any scuffs.”
Friday: Game Day Gear
When Friday’s game day came around, Stewart dressed to impress, as he is known for taking it to the next level on game day.
For the Aug. 19 game against the Houston Dynamo, Stewart wore a Dolce&Gabanna blazer, white jeans and another pair of Lanvins on his feet.
Saturday Wine & Dine
On Saturday, formal attire was required for the Earthquakes’ Annual Wine and Dine event. The annual fundraiser gave fans the rare chance to enjoy on food and fine wine alongside Earthquakes players and coaches while bidding on an array of auction items.
For the Wine and Dine, Stewart wore a beige Top Man blazer, a white Christian Dior shirt, jeans from Zara, shoes from Cole Haan and a Tommy Hilfiger pocket square.
Cole Haan is one of Stewart’s favorite brands of shoes for formal wear. He discovered them at the store that used to be on Santana Row.
“I bought my first pair and never looked back,” Stewart said. “They are super comfy which is what you need when wearing shoes.”
