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:
Although it’s still Winter, you should probably be thinking about getting out and training, if you haven’t already. Addiashave released the Cage collection which I really like. There’s pieces including jackets, hooded tops, T-shirts and shorts, and come with iconic prints and designs.
The Tango collection is actually based on football clothing, the Tango football was an iconic football created by Adidas and used in the 1978 and 1982 World Cups. With all sportswear they have multiple uses, so if you’re having a kick around, playing 5 a side or going for a run, these pieces will work well for any occasion. The Tango Cage collection has a distinctive sublimation print throughout, and is available in red and black, although I love the blue variations which I have chosen here.
Selected pieces are also made with recycled polyester. This is part of the Adidas sustainable product program which sees the products made in the most sustainable ways possible.
My favourite pieces from the collection include the T-shirt above, which has the cool printed design and only costs £25 from Adidas here. The track jacket in the middle is another favourite. It’s a classic Adidas track jacket with tonal three stripes down the arms, and the pattern on 2/3 of the jacket and arms. This is another reasonably priced piece of clothing at £48here. The first top is a more toned down version, which is priced at £35.
The blue T Shirt comes in climalite fabric to sweep the sweat away from the body, and will set you back £30. The shorts will give you good freedom and movement for running, and are £22. Finally the classic track jacket comes with contrasting white colour zip and stripes on the arms, it’s navy in colour, has kangaroo pockets to the sides, hood and white zipped front. This one is also from the recycle range, and has the recycle logo to the front left breast, and costs £60.
Adidashave 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.
Is it safe to buy an all white pair of trainers in the Winter? If you think so, or you’re looking ahead to Summer already, Nike has an answer for you.
The Air Max Zero trainers are really cool, and there’s an all white, triple white pair which look as crisp as the white snow. It’s hard to believe that the style was designed way back in 1985 but only first released two years ago in 2015. Sleek and lightweight with a textile upper, I think these look really great, but probably released a little too early in the year for me.
If you want to get yourself a pair, they’re available now, at £100 at Nike and other shops. I’ve been thinking about an all white, or mostly white pair of trainers for the upcoming Summer, with the Air Max 90 all white and Air Max One all white being options, the Air Max Zero is now another contender for looking at a white trainer.
Tommy Hilfiger dropped the Tommy Jeans 90’s Capsule Collection back in April, and since it’s success the line has been expanded and more nostalgia has been added to the line up. As you know I love 90’s fashion trends, they have been big for a few years, and continue to grow and become more popular.
The new additions include a new T-shirt with the iconic Tommy Jeans logo, this time without the wording, and the graphic being printed on the front of the shirt is it’s entirety, a hooded sweatshirt with the same design and including the Tommy Jeans wording down the sleeves. For the Winter months, a padded gilet has been added, as well as a metallic down puffer jacket, and some cotton fleece sweatpants.
One of the key pieces from the collection is a varsity style jacket, with a wool body, faux leather sleeves and Tommy Jeans graphic to the back of the jacket. The Tee is £40, with hoody being £110, sweatpants £90 and the varsity jacket coming in at £190.
They’re all available at Tommy Jeans here, if you want to get your 90’s on.
Over the years I’ve loved my Christmas jumpers, and have quite the collection from my Christmas Jumpers 2015 and 2014, and this year will be no different. It seems there’s more and more jumpers on sale, from the absolute novelty to the verging on stylish, there’s a pattern or design for you. The ultimate in cheesy Christmas themed knits, or something a bit more toned down with a seasonal fair isle sweater.
Christmas Jumper Day 2016
Christmas Jumper Day is Friday 16th December this year, where you can not only wear a brilliant novelty jumper, but also you can donate to Save The Children if you want to show your support to the charity.
There’s plenty to choose from, here are my favourites from different brands and shops; From budget to premium, there’s one for everyone 🙂
