I’ve been carrying adidas sportswear and trainers since I used to be a teen. I keep in mind my first pair of Gazelles – the basic brushed black suede with the notorious three white stripes operating down the edges – which I’d ordered from my mum’s catalogue and spent the following half a yr paying off in instalments with cash earned from my paper spherical. I believed I used to be the canine’s proverbials!
Nonetheless, now that I’m a mum of teenagers, each of whom put on adidas, I’m starting to query whether or not it’s socially acceptable for me to be carrying the identical model as my youngsters? Can middle-aged ladies put on adidas? Ought to middle-aged ladies put on adidas? Effectively, I’m about to place it to the take a look at. You see little previous me has simply joined the adidas blogger neighborhood (oh yeah, try the shiny new badge on my homepage, teen me has actually simply moist herself), which implies I’ve bought some new adidas sportswear to assessment and I wanna inform you all about it.
As you possibly can see from the picture beneath, I’ve gone for an all inexperienced look within the items I’ve chosen (Shadow Inexperienced to be exact) which I’m completely loving. Just a few years again I went and noticed a color guide to advise me on what colors I ought to be carrying, and this shade of inexperienced was one in every of my actually good colors. However you don’t see a lot of it within the outlets, actually not in sportswear anyway, in order quickly as I noticed this pretty lot I simply knew I needed to snap it up pronto.
Adidas TLRD Influence Coaching Excessive-Assist Bra
I wish to begin off with this quite gorge sports activities bra, since you see, I don’t have a lot up high so to talk. Which suggests I’ve by no means actually paid that a lot consideration to how supportive the bra I work out in is. That being mentioned, I’m totally conscious that it doesn’t matter how little you will have up there, it’s nonetheless necessary to help what you’ve got. This high-support bra is palms down essentially the most supportive sports activities bra I’ve ever owned. The sports activities bra material is comfortable and stretchy, but in addition holds and helps precisely the place you want it. There’s even some padding in there to assist with any perky nipple moments. In truth, whereas we’re with reference to materials it’s truly produced from no less than 60% recycled content material, so it’s inexperienced and it’s ‘inexperienced’! It’s additionally a part of adidas’s particular moisture-absorbing AEROREADY vary, which I’ll speak extra about in a mo.
The cross-back straps are tremendous flattering, particularly if like me, you like displaying off your again muscle tissue. I imply, you gotta exhibit your good bits, proper? The wire padded straps are adjustable and don’t dig in (enormous plus level), and the again is fixed with 4 clasp fittings to permit for various widths. I’m fairly positive most different sports activities bras I’ve seen solely supply 3 on the most, so that is nice. Total, it feels supportive, however not in a restrictive approach – your boobs can breathe, however they’re actually not going wherever.
Adidas Trainicons Tank Prime
My splendid exercise/operating vest is unfastened, lengthy and breathable, and this Trainicons tank high ticks all them bins. For me it must be for essentially the most half useful, but it surely’s all the time good when it seems nice too, proper!?! There are some things I like in regards to the type and look of this high:
- The Color – As I’ve mentioned, Shadow Inexperienced is completely my shade, and the refined three black stripes are a complicated and extra grown-up addition to the standard white stripes. FYI it’s additionally obtainable in Magic Mauve/White, and White/Pulse Lime.
- The Reduce – Racer type backs are completely my vibe. Not gonna lie, the arm holes are unfastened so that you deffo want a bra beneath to keep away from displaying off extra than simply your athletic prowess. However while you’ve combine and matched it in addition to I’ve with a sports activities bra in the identical color, it’s a significantly banging look!
- The Size – Personally, I favor a high that comes down over my bum, to cover any potential camel toe state of affairs. Plus, I believe it flatters my determine extra and simply typically makes me really feel extra snug and assured. That is the proper size.
- The Cloth – Just like the sports activities bra this high is made partially from recycled supplies and adidas AEROREADY. AEROREADY makes use of moisture wicking expertise which mainly retains you feeling dry no matter how a lot you sweat and subsequently extra snug long run. I like how unfastened it’s and the way the material strikes with me after I work out – ain’t nothing worse than a too tight high in my view.
Adidas Optime Trainicons 7/8 Tights
For me, a good pair of exercise tights must have the three S’s…
- Squat proof – I squat low, I actually don’t need any gusset splitting motion happening!
- Stretchy – They should transfer with me, not limit my actions.
- Suck in issue – I need clean traces, no VPL, and never gonna lie, I need them to make me look slimmer.
These Optime Trainicons tights have gotten all three happening, which makes this lady very blissful. You see, discovering trousers that match me isn’t precisely simple. I’m a basic pear form, which implies my backside half is larger than my high half, my waist is slender, and my bum and hips are extensive. It’s a nightmare making an attempt to get trousers to suit me in all the proper locations and to additionally really feel as if my blood can nonetheless flow into – all the time a bonus while you’re figuring out! This pair of beauts match like a glove. Tremendous stretchy, tremendous sturdy, and tremendous suckyinny (good phrase!) and most significantly they make me really feel nice. Which is so necessary proper? I’m a giant believer in the truth that if you feel and look nice you usually tend to carry out higher. It’s a confidence factor. Should you rock up on the gymnasium carrying a pair of grotty, saggy, greying leggings I can assure you received’t really feel as motivated to exercise than should you’re carrying garments that match and flatter you.
The material is sturdy and powerful, so there’s no want to fret about any see-through pant issues. Additionally they wash and dry simply and shortly – important mum standards. Once more, I’ve gone for them in Shadow Inexperienced, nonetheless you can too get them in Black, Darkish Gray Heather, Legacy Burgundy, and Magic Mauve. There’s additionally a hidden pocket within the inside again of the waistband, for storing stuff like a key, a tissue, canine poo baggage, or a snack and so on.
I actually just like the subtlety of the trademark adidas three stripes within the black, it makes for a unbelievable trendy spin on a basic, and means they’re each sensible and classy. I might put on these for figuring out in, but in addition casually with a hoodie to only sit back in as nicely. Oh, and I need to simply point out the excessive waist, as a result of I like a trouser with a excessive waist. It helps to carry you in and really feel supported and offers a a lot sleeker silhouette.
Adidas NY 90 Sneakers

I put on them with attire, with denims, shorts, with sportswear; you identify it, I’ll put on them with it. What I like about these specific trainers is that you could costume them up and costume them down, they’re tremendous versatile – which in my thoughts means worth for cash… nicely, I’m a mum in any case!
They’re comfortable, snug, look fashionable, make a press release with out going too far on the market, and I believe they actually say one thing about the one that wears them. I do know I’ll put on them to absolute dying this spring and summer season. I notably love the little particulars of the splashes of pink and black to make the trainers pop a bit. I’ve gone for the Cloud White/Cloud White/Clear Pink colourway, however they’re additionally obtainable in 5 different colors – Cloud White/Cloud White/Cream White; Cloud White/Cloud White /Mud Purple; Cloud White/Cloud White/Calvi; Cloud White/Cloud White/Nearly Lime; Cloud White/Cloud White/Sandy Beige. I believe it’s deffo price having a take into consideration what you’re going to put on them with earlier than selecting your color, however apart from that, go for it.
Like all the opposite gadgets I’ve chosen, these footwear are made with a collection of recycled supplies – the higher options no less than 50% recycled content material – and is a superb illustration of how adidas are doing their bit to assist cut back plastic waste.
