Michael 84 - Men's Fashion And Lifestyle

Adidas

Adidas is the iconic sportswear brand from Germany.

Here you'll find my favourite fashion pieces from Adidas, new designs, collections and style tips for Adidas.

Adidas Stan Smith For Summer 2018

Featuring:

Finally got a pair of Adidas Stan Smith Trainers

I finally got a pair of Stan Smith’s!

You may remember last year I was talking about getting a pair of white trainers, and I was torn between getting a pair of Adidas Stan Smith’s, or a pair of triple white Air Max. I went for the white Air Max, but for this year I’ve finally got a pair of Stan Smith trainers!

I love my Air Max, there’s no doubt, and I have a ton, probably too many if there’s such a thing. They’re so comfortable, cool and I can walk around in these all day and my feet are absolutely fine, which can’t be said for something like my Converse All Star trainers.

Men’s Summer Fashion Tips – Sweat Shorts [UPDATED 2017]

mens-sweat-shorts-1

UPDATED FOR 2017

Sweatpants have been thought of for a long time as super casual, and of course they can be worn for a laid back and chilled out style. However more recently we’ve seen a resurgence in sport luxe fashion, with higher end menswear brands showcasing their take on the trends, with casual tops and bottoms including more stylish, better cut sweat pants and joggers. From that comes the summer trend of sweat shorts, and it’s something I really like and have embraced.

You may remember I got a few pair of sweat shorts from H&M a short while ago, and I really like them. At only £8 a pair you can’t go wrong, and they are good quality with a really nice fit. The summer season is here, and other fashion labels and brands have an array of sweat shorts ready for you to buy, in a range of colours and styles.

Adidas NMD R1: All Black | All White | All Red Coming 24th February

Featuring:

Adidas NMD_R1 All Black, All White and All Red Restocked

The Adidas NMD juggernaut has been in full force, and it does not look like it’s slowing down anytime soon, with the re-release of the triple colour packs, or the all black, all white and all red Adidas NMD R1.

If you like the Boost technology which Adidas are now putting on a lot of their trainers, including the iconic Superstar’s with the Boost Superstar I covered two weeks ago, the NMD are one of the trainer styles which wear this well. As with the standard NMD design, they all come with the moulted EVA midsole plugs, and some stretch mesh upper and a rubber outsole. The three stripes and tongue tab are reflective which makes your kicks pop when it kicks in.

I really do like the all white and all black options in the NMD range, I do think they look good, if you missed the all black options which I featured on the blog back in September 2016 you will now have a second chance to bag yourself a pair. They will be retailing for £109.95.

They go on sale on Friday 24th February from 23:00 UK time from Adidas online, alternatively there’s some other shops which are getting them in, but as always, you’ll have to either be quick or enter one of their lotteries. Here’s the links for the different shoes from Adidas:

Adidas Superstar Boost Trainers

Featuring:

Adidas Superstar Boost

Adidas have announced their latest trainers which will use the boost technology, and it’s a familiar style, the Superstar. Released on the 9th February, you can get the Adidas Superstar Boost trainers in a few days.

The trainers come with the iconic Superstar design which were launched in 1970. You get the same premium flexible leather upper and leather lining, which comes with a rubber toe complete with the herringbone pattern. The three stripes to the side of the trainers are the standard, and these kicks come in either black or white with a cream midsole. You can pick these up for £95 when they are released from Adidas online here or other shops.

I think these are pretty nice, it’s a combination of the old classics which are the Superstar with the brand new and hugely popular Boost tech. These will probably sell out really quick, so if you do want these you should act fast. However if I want some Adidas Boost I would rather buy a pair of NMD or Ultra, rather than these which I would consider classics. If I wanted to buy some classic Superstar’s then that’s what I would buy.

Let me know your thoughts on these.

Adidas Ashington Limited Edition Trainers

Featuring:

adidas-ashington

Adidas are set to release another pair of trainers in partnership with one of the football teams they sponsor again, Manchester United. Last year the brand with the three stripes released their Stretford trainers, and this year they’re all set to release a brand new limited edition pair of trainers, inspired by Man Untied legend Sir Bobby Charlton, called the Ashington. If you’re wondering about the name, it’s named after where Bobby Charlton comes from, up North near me, in a place called Ashington in Northumberland.

The trainers are styled on boots worn by the great man back in his playing days, and come with leather upper, gum sole and a classic Adidas silhouette. The leather uppers are accompanied by the infamous three stripes, along with gold branding and detailing including on the laces. The backs of the trainers have not been forgotten, with the trademark red devil being present in an embossed style on the right heel of the shoe.

You’ll be able to get your own pair when they are released on Thursday 27th October. They’re priced at £89.95 and will be available in limited quantities at Adidas stores and selected other shops too.

Daily Style – Adidas ZNE Hoodie

Featuring:

michael84-adidas-zne-hoodie-white

Hey guys!

One of the most coveted hooded tops this season has got to be the Adidas ZNE Hoodie from the brand new athletics collection from Adidas. I saw this back in September and loved it, and it was released several weeks ago and has already proved to be extremely popular. I managed to grab myself one, and I have to say I think it’s really good!

First of all I have to talk about the design, it’s so good! It comes in a range of colours, but the white really stands out. It’s crisp and clean, with a black zipper straight down the middle which gives the top an added edge, as does the other contrasting asymmetrical black stripe going down from the top to left shoulder. The design is finished off with the trademark Adidas logo and branding on the left sleeve.

It differs from other sweatshirts and hoodies for several reasons. First of all the material it’s made from is a mix of cotton, polyester and elastane, with the end result being a good fitting, soft but durable honeycombed feel of the outer, with the inner feeling very soft and smooth, rather than the fluffy interior you may find in a standard hoodie. The funnel neck is perfect for keeping warm while outside on a run or doing other activities, zip pockets and the cuffs come with hideaway and thumb holes, as you can see from the photos, keeping hands warm but free for the best movement.

It’s a must have for Autumn and Winter if you love to get out there for a run, the ZNE hoodie is stylish and practical. It’s sold out fast almost everywhere, but you can get it from JD Sports for £65 here.

Let me know what you think, and check out more pics below 🙂
