Adidas Sneaker Collection


I have amassed an arsenal of Adidas sneakers and I always get a ton of questions about where to get them. You should know that you can get the common ones like the black stripes or the all white ones in store or on the Adidas online store. You can even customize your shoes to change the texture or colors and make it uniquely yours. For more unique colors, it is better to search other sites for them. If you are living in the US, Footlocker stores are a good place to find rare colors and limited editions. Googling a simple search term like "gold adidas superstars" will give you results for these golden pair below as well as a couple of other designs that feature this gold color. If you have the model number of the shoes, that would also help to narrow down your search and provide you with more store links to obtain the shoes from.

These are an old model of superstars so they are not available anymore. If you do find them being sold on a shoe store, they are most likely fake. I was lucky enough to get them from a local reseller and it is seriously the best colorway because it's pink + unicorn!

These holographic shoes were originally available on the Adidas store website but since have been sold out. You can now get it on eBay but as usual, do access the credibility of the sellers before making your purchase if you are picky on the item being authentic. These ones have an iridescent body that reflects the rainbow as you walk. How cool!

This is the classic pair that everyone has. I got mine from the Junior's section of the Adidas website so it was a bit cheaper!

I love pink so since this was also under the Juniors range, I had to pick up this rose pink color. It always looks maroon in my photos but I swear it is pink. They are also available on the Adidas website.

These copper ones with snake skin texture are getting harder to find. Footlocker still carries some but in large sizes like US 9 and above. I got mine from eBay so it is worth checking out. It is expensive, but that's what you get for a high demand product that is low in supply.

I didn't really like these at first but they grew on me and I decided to get a pair. They are more expensive than usual though but it's all well worth it because they are also extra comfortable to wear. There is just something different about the fit and the way it feels when you walk in them. The metal toes just makes it more magical and it does not get in the way of walking even though that part of the shoe is stiff. The shoe is made of suede though, so it might be tougher to clean it if it gets dirty.

I saw this instock on the Adidas website and immediately purchased them. They go for $80 which is the same price as the classic black and white ones so why not? I'm just a bit disappointed that the shoe had some glue residue on the tongue and the tongue logo looked badly printed. They seriously should have gone with a silver tongue logo in my opinion. Otherwise, this shoe is seriously pretty and all sorts of sparkly. The glitter does not fall off but I do imagine crease lines from wear and tear won't look pretty :(

Too lazy to continue right now so watch the videos at the start of the post to see more of my shoe collection and where I got them from!
