It was always Nike for me. As a kid I couldn’t wait to hit the sneaker store for my next pair. And just like every kid does, I’d wear them straight out of the store; stashing the old ones in the box to be forgotten. In those days, Nike was it.
But that was a long time ago. The tables have turned since then because looking around the streets today, particularly amongst the cool kids, it’s all about Adidas. With their high end designer collabs and Adidas Originals street cred, both the fashion people and teens too – they’re all sporting the three stripes! I’ve even gotten on board with the classic track pant (available in skinny styles!) which sometimes has me dressing like my 11 year old son.
But I’m not purely Adidas or Nike. Different categories call me to each one for different reasons. Here is the breakdown.
Nike 100%. They really are more athlete driven (aside from soccer) with performance technology that’s top notch.
Adidas Originals, the throwback series, is high in demand. I can’t walk a block in the city without seeing these on somebody’s feet. The clean design is hard to beat.
I’m going with Adidas on this one too. I find their leggings to be priced really well (except for the Stella McCartney stuff which I’d wait to buy on sale), and their prints are spot on.
There’s no comparison– I’m way more Adidas than Nike with what I’d wear on the regular simply because they’re killin’ it with athleisure, which speaks my style language to the tee.
I’m still not over the fact that I had my hands on this bag while in Barcelona, but then decided it was lame to buy Adidas abroad…only to discover that this particular style is not available in the US. UGH! So perusing both sites today, I’d have to say Nike. As parent company of Converse, there is a cute collection of bags online; sweet and simple.
What about you? Are you more Adidas or Nike?
