adidas Original Sneakersadidas keeps bringing the heat in 2017. Between men’s and women’s styles the classics are everything from Stan Smith, Gazelle and Superstar. Taking a closer look at what made these styles a must-have, we’re matching things up with athleisure-court fashion and getting back to basics.

The adidas Stan Smith. Minimal-style and comfort. A design you can wear with just about anything and walking the streets since the early 70’s. When world champion tennis player, Stan Smith was No. 1 in the world, he signed a contract with adidas in 1973 and from that moment forward the sneaker was Stan Smith. Today, we see this model being worn with high fashion and everyday sport-luxe style.

The Superstar. A sneaker that is just that in the world of fashion. This style has been appreciated since 1969 and we’re now seeing various looks paired with this sneaker. Like the Stan Smith, the Superstar is simple and minimal giving everyone a chance to pair their personal style with it. As the first low-top basketball sneaker, you can say this design has made leaps and bounds in the world of fashion and style. From the streets of New York Fashion Week to little ones running the playground, the Superstar is iconic.

The Superstar model has also evolved since the late 60’s. The latest upper for this sneaker consists of primeknit fabric. Breathable and more lightweight than the original leather design. The three stripe look is not present on this model and supports an even more minimal appearance.

adidas Gazelle was first introduced in 1968, but wasn’t noticed on the street as being a casual style until the late 80’s.  It’s models like the Gazelle that helped adidas make the transition to style that supported both sport and fashion. Today, this design is available in many colors and still as popular as ever. Doesn’t matter if you want to pair these kicks with a retro soccer jersey or your favorite designer jacket, either way you’ll be lookin’ fly.

Ayyy. Louis Tomlinson and Steve Aoki know what’s up. They’ve got the best of both Three Stripes world with Originals and Performance. Lace up in the Superstar for classic style and then switch it up to the Ultra Boost Uncaged for premium performance. 

Karlie Kloss

Women are loving the convenience of transitioning from their workout style to street style. Karlie Kloss is no stranger to adidas and represents both the performance and athleisure moments very well in her adidas Ultra Boost Uncaged. She could be casually walking the streets or she could have come from a killer workout, either way, it’s style we can relate to.

We can’t help but love Karrueche. Whether she’s glammed up or reppin’ #teamcozy, this girl knows what’s up. We’re all about this laidback adidas Gazelle look. Oversized hoodies and joggers are very welcomed in the world of athleisure.

The year just started and we’re already seeing a strong start from adidas with celeb style. Great things are sure to come. Show us your #boosted style by stuntin’ on the ‘Gram and tagging @finishline or @finishlinewomen and you may get featured in our weekly blog post for some social media glory. ///

Boost

With the PureBOOST, Ultra Boost, and Ultra Boost Uncaged from the adidas ‘Silver Pack’ dropping this week, it’s about time that we break down the best way to keep your Boosts clean and pristine ✨.

When you bring your kicks home, it’s all about preventative maintenance. Major key 🔑. The first step in keeping your kicks clean is waterproofing. Check out this video from the good people at ForceField for the best technique.

The ForceField Water Proofer Spray creates an invisible barrier that will protect the knit upper and the laces from every day dirt and stains. Bonus! You can also use this on all your Three Stripes hats and jackets.

Waterproofing isn’t the only step though. The best way to keep your kicks A1 is upkeep. Keep your rotation 🔄  clean by designating a cleaning day where you bring them all out, watch a game or put on a movie, and get scrubbing with the ForceField Shoe Care Kit. This all-in-one kit is a true blessing 🙏🏼.. It’s got shoe cleaner, freshener, and a shoe brush. Keep the inside and outside of your shoes #ForceFieldFresh.

Don’t forget to pick up the adidas ‘Silver Pack’ on 2/16 at finishline.com.

The Ultra Boost X is the next best thing for all the ladies out there rockin’ adidas. Like the PureBOOST X, this design was made to support the natural shape of a women’s foot. Using ARAMIS motion tracking technology, adidas found the key areas in need of support.

adidas Ultra Boost X

With the free-floating arch connecting to the Boost sole, this sneaker will be sure to keep you light on your feet and loving every step. The upper has a sock-like appeal and is as comfy as it gets. Take these for a stroll around town or when you’re busting out the miles, either way, you won’t be disappointed.

adidas Ultra Boost X LTD

Up first for this new design is the Ultra Boost X LTD. Coming in a Silver, Grey combo, this sneaker will match your neutral tones and colors alike. Easy to pair with casual athleisure style or your go-to gym outfits. Who doesn’t like that kind of versatility?!

Check out the adidas Ultra Boost X LTD Thursday, February 16th and the adidas Ultra Boost X Thursday, February 22nd at finishline.com.

When you live and work full-time in a city, it’s easiest to live an active lifestyle when you’re often in activewear. I’m constantly taking the subway between work, home, the gym, and various other errands in Manhattan and Brooklyn. It’s important that I feel comfortable while in transit and that I can quickly change to jump into my workout. The latest pieces from adidas transition from streetwear to activewear.

ADIDAS_4

Many people in New York prefer to wear all black. but I love to incorporate color into my activewear. These adidas Stellasport by Stella McCartney Printed Tights come in a beautiful navy and coral colorway. The fabric is thick, and the elastic waistband stays put no matter what.

ADIDAS_6

The Stella McCartney tights can be layered with a variety of different tops. The Stellasport Metallic Crew Sweatshirt is a more neutral option with pops of bright color. I would wear this relaxed-fit sweatshirt to run errands on the weekend. The Originals Trefoil Logo Hoodie has a bold floral pattern. It can be layered under a heavier jacket or worn with denim. It’s helpful to have a warm layer with a hood when you spend the day running around the city. The Ultimate Slit Training Shirt can be worn under either sweatshirt or on its own. I’ve also worn it with my Stella McCartney tights to take a yoga class.

Finally, the PureBOOST X ATR Running Shoes are an exciting update to the PureBOOST collection. Although they’re very light on your feet, these shoes boast a lot of cushion and breathability. The detached upper and midsole give the shoe a feminine look and fit. The neutral colors pair well with a variety of looks, and the flecks in the sole are a unique touch.

ADIDAS_2

While my schedule never seems to let up, it helps that I have versatile activewear to get me through the day. adidas knows how to design activewear that’s neutral with interesting details, so it can be mixed and matched. I can’t wait to see what they have in store for Spring 2017!

Keep up with Evann on her Instagram & blog 🙂

There’s only good things to say about Ms. Aleali May. Her style, her vibes and her understanding of what it is to be true to herself. At the age of 24, this young, talented stylist and fashion blogger has worked with artists such as Kendrick Lamar and Wiz Khalifa. Wearing items that make her the most confident, or even how her confidence makes the fashion statement, Aleali is just the coolest and super down to earth.

Being from Los Angeles, Aleali finds inspiration from all of her surroundings stating, “LA has definitely influenced my style whether it was coming from the hip-hop culture, whether it was coming from the streets, high fashion in Beverly Hills, palm trees, everything.” She has a way of talking about fashion and style that really draws you in and makes you want to have a closet just like hers. It’s 100% her confidence, her spirit and the knowledge she has gained from the fashion industry all wrapped into one.

For all of the 90’s babies out there, this girl is about that style. As Aleali paired her Superstar sneakers to some old-school adidas fashion, she mentioned her likes of Aaliyah, TLC and Mýa and it was refreshing to hear how she’s into oversized pieces, mixing and matching and minimal details. A lens you don’t get to see through every day and Aleali explained those insights very well, saying “It’s less about the items and more about the person and owning the items you’re wearing – pick out a great outfit to match your confidence and just go.”

Something Aleali was very well aware of while being on set was how everything fit. Even if something didn’t hang right or something was a little off, she made it work by altering it and just giving it that Aleali flavor.

011217we_are_more_Blog4_650x

What would this athleisure queen be without some sneakers? Well, as many of you can guess, Aleali knows sneakers are where it’s at when it comes to fashion. One of her first answers to a question about style was, “sneakers, I feel they just represent every single person and every single lifestyle – sneakers are the best.” As the day moved on, so did each look. Aleali was so confident in each item that she didn’t need to do much to make everyone around her feel the good vibes. She was doing what she loves.

When looking at the bigger picture, we know Aleali is only beginning to make major waves in the fashion world. We are thrilled to have captured her in a light that expresses her lifestyle and just being able to keep things 100 with a genuine individual.

It’s no secret adidas Originals is all about minimal staples for your closet. That’s why adding some accessories to the picture is never a bad option.With accents like tall socks, hats and simple bags to take your style on the road, adidas is giving you every reason to say yes to all designs.

Starting from the top, if anything has been a trend this year, it’s been the trend of hats. Ladies, you know this has been a go-to when you have that gym hair, not willing to get the dry shampoo out in the mornings or maybe it’s just making your outfit look that much better. But, from sun up to sun down, you can rock an adidas Originals Precurved Washed Strapback Hat anytime of day.

School books, traveling or just for a casual trip across town for the day, carry what you need with you in adidas Originals style. With nothing to distract from what you’re rockin’ the adidas Originals National Backpack or adidas Originals National Duffle Bag will only tie into your outfit and keep you looking athleisure.

Showing off your socks is what’s up. Doesn’t matter if you cover up or put your adidas socks on display, the three stripes look right, especially with a pair of adidas AlphaBounce Engineered Mesh Running Shoes.

The buzz around adidas AlphaBounce is real. With Engineered Mesh as a new detail, the look is light, fresh and easy to love. You can get the most out of your training and easily pair with the majority of your street style. The best part about this makeover is the clean, updated design. The mesh makes you feel like you’re wearing close to nothing when walking, running or jumping and comes in colorways that will match it all.


To start off on the right note with this updated look and feel, we wanted to dedicate a night to this adidas style. With all kinds of sneaker experts, customers, friends and Finish Line fam, we put on an event with adidas in Los Angeles and had everyone saying yes to the AlphaBounce Engineered Mesh.

Host, @rademita walked us through some of the event highlights like the trampoline and turf runway, Kid Ink’s  performance and guests breaking it down in all things adidas.

Get on the AlphaBounce wave and check out all the styles at finishline.com.

This holiday season is jam-packed with some stellar launches, but one sneaker that hasn’t slowed down is the adidas NMD. On 12/22, you’re going see a different side of these sneakers because the NMD XR1 are coming to Finish Line for the first time ever.

Look for these to be covered in a ‘Duck Camo’ print and accompanied by a protective cage overlay which differentiates these with the NMD R1. The same full-length Boost sole we know and love remains the same. The NMD is known for its versatile features. Whether you rock it with joggers or with jeans, it’s definitely going to be a win.

Stay #boosted and get the adidas NMD XR1 ‘Duck Camo’ on December 22nd at FinishLine.com.
