Nope, I Do Not Accept Adidas Slides As High Fashion Accessories

Adidas slides have been the purview of college bros for decades now, the choice footwear for pairing with over-sized basketball shorts and visor caps.

Style Stealer: Rihanna’s Adidas Obsession

It’s pretty rare to be able to do a Style Stealer post about Rihanna because she’s usually wearing, like, thigh-high snakeskin boots, a bedazzled basketball jersey, and no pants, which isn’t really a steal-able look. And sure, this slouchy Adidas outfit she wore to LAX last week isn’t exactly office-appropriate, but it is a cool…

Would You Wear These Adidas Butterfly Sneakers?

Jeremy Scott’s latest collaboration with Adidas Originals yielded these craaaazy super-high-top wedge sneakers with butterfly wings, due to hit stores in August. I’m actually kind of obsessed with them, but when I asked Amelia if she would wear them she replied, “Yes. To a rave I went to in 1998.” Damn, too true. So, what…

Facebook For Your Feet

As much as Facebook, Twitter, and the internet are a part of our lives, they remain a weirdly invisible part. If you’re a die-hard Facebook fan, you should check out Gerry Mckay’s Adidas shoes design, which puts the Facebook brand front and center in your wardrobe (well, more like front and down … on your…

Adidas Originals and Snoop Dogg have teamed up to create perhaps the comfiest holiday ever, National Tracksuit Day, and it’s happening tomorrow, November 19th. Here’s a montage of Snoop’s slightly dizzying pleas for you to take part. What’s that? You’re not allowed to wear a tracksuit to work? Dude, it’s a national holiday.

Adidas Originals Short Is Where All The Cool Kids Are

They say that advertising is in the crapper these days, but Adidas sure seems to be onto something, at least in the realm of video campaigns, with its Adidas Originals shorts.

Worse Than Jeggings: Jean-Printed Gym Leggings

Jeggings just got some competition in the “what’s fuglier?” contest. Behold Stella McCartney‘s “denim printed” leggings. They’re part of her line for Adidas, so we assume the idea is that you wear these to the gym? Really?

A Pair Of Sneaker Pumps We Wouldn’t Mind Running Into

There are certain things you just know are true. Like: For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, tights are not pants, and Johnny Weir is as gay as the night is black. Up until now, we never questioned the horrendous connotations that come when you put the words “sneaker” and “pump” together,…

The Craziest Workout Wear We’ve Ever Seen

If Michael Jackson were still alive (may he rest in peace), we’re sure he’d be all up in Jeremy Scott’s new collection for Adidas. MJ is probably the only person in the world who’d be able to get away with pumping some iron in a sleeveless military windbreaker or jogging in a bedazzled bolero track…

An Underwire Sports Bra Could End Your Workout Woes

I am a busty lady, and what might suck most about it is never finding a supportive sports bra—I’ve always had to wear two to make sure the Boobsey Twins stay in place when I’m on a run or working out. While there are solutions out there for C, D, and larger cupped ladies, I…

Quick Video: Adidas SLVRL Fall 2009 Collection

Can we give Adidas an A+ for creativity? Usually, clothing lines create a catalog or look book to show off the latest clothes for the season. But for their SLVR Label Autumn/Winter 2009-2010 collection, Adidas has added a short video that anyone can watch on YouTube. (FYI: The video was directed by Theo…
