Of Retro and ADIDAS

All Day I Dream About S.....ports!!! hahaha...

The adidas brand has been around even before I was born. I have always appreciated the shoes and has been a a part of me since my childhood, campus days and working life. Even my kids first real sneakers were a pair of adidas Sambas.

My very first memory of adidas was when my uncle showed of his pair of "Stan Smith" white and green shoes. At the time I didn't know who Stan Smith was hehe ( I was like 6 years old?? ) But what really caught my eye was the Shuttlecock 3 stripes logo.

Over the years adidas has changed its logo twice but still maintaining the 3 stripes. So being a retroguy I only acknowledge the first one and to me, that will always be the one true logo.

So when I walked in an adidas store recently I was glad to see the same retro logo that I love on a gorgeous looking "Stan Smith II" and bought it straight away!!! One of the best sneakers I have ever owned :)
hmmm I seem to recall one of friends wife saying "happiness comes from the feet??"

It's also a signed one but the sign is the atomic symbol for rolex replica sale Helium. The bezel is unidirectional and the ceramic insert adds the replica watches sale bling to it - although a healthy dose – and that shows who it competes against – yes, the Rolex Submariner. The breitling replica uk font on the bezel is that of Omega's Planet Ocean's. It is absurd not to get a sapphire crystal with a rolex replica uk like this, so it's there and it's domed, not flat. As an extra, it comes with an anti-reflective coating, turning it completely invisible and fake watches makes you feel as if you are staring straight into the dial. Under the hublot replica sale dial is the Omega Caliber 2500, which is a modified ETA 2892, upgraded to meet the COSC certification.
