They're ****ing terrible Nick, sort your life out. 

 

Is this what getting older is? Being attracted to increasingly terrible clothing? Olive green is en route to ****ing beige. 

 

Honestly, if this is how I'll end up, I'm off to Switzerland now. 

 

I'd rather go out with dignity than step out in those. Probably with a combover nall.

I bought some olive green ultraboost a few weeks ago and they're banging tbf dunno what the problem with green is 

 

Nought wrong with a foliage camo/dark green jacket but green footwear you'd want some vibrancy there not just muddy looking dreariness.

 

Nearly copped the ones you mentioned there too, think they were on offer £70 linked through Hukd in February time. Saved up another 50 though and got the Cookies & Cream 4.0's; Banging

In my job I get to see numerous members of the older generation succumb to the inevitable and start wearing fawn (any shade of beige actually) jacket, trousers and shoes. You’re kidding yourself if you think it’s avoidable 😂 you may put it off for a while but you’ll be drawn to the beige clothes rail eventually.

Im in my 50’s so am expecting it anytime soon.

Does anyone know any sites that sell deadstock adidas? Not after anything super rare just some lines that they have stopped fairly recently like the LA trainer or the Haven?

Best bet is Facebook groups really unless you want to start scouring South America for old shops. JD Sports still sell LA’s though. There’s a really cool shop in Madrid called Spezial, they always have Adidas’s that have sold out everywhere else still knocking about online

I'm 48 years old

 

I've got 3 pairs of Adidas Iniki's.

 

A pair of Raw Gold (beige).

 

adidas I-5923 Boost Raw Gold - Grailify Sneaker Releases | Streetwear  shoes, Sneakers, Gold adidas

 

A pair in Burgundy

 

adidas I-5923 Collegiate Burgundy - B27871

 

And some in white

adidas Iniki Runner Pride of the 70s USA I-5923 REd/White/Blue Mens sizes |  eBay

 

I also own a selection of cardigans

I’m the same age as you and recently needed some new trainers. The wife and kids were hounding me to buy something trendy but I settled on a pair of Sketchers because they had memory foam and felt really comfortable.

They all made it clear that they won’t be seen out in public with me wearing them but fvck em. I like them :)

When you refer to the ‘older generation’ do you mean me?

 

I’ve been a sucker for drab military colours since I was about twelve.

 

I make olive exciting.

Well these have just arrived and might just be the most comfortable shoes I've ever put on my feet.

Update @Finnegan I bought an off white pair of these too with green action flash.

 

I still roam with them to this day and people remark kindly.

 

And so everything is fine.

 

Bitch.

Lol no I don’t know you, it was a general comment regarding our older folks penchant for wearing fawn.

No comment on the trainers 😊

Any chance you could change that avatar?

 

It makes me oddly angry in a last of the summer wine slapstick willy puller resentment sort of way.

 

Surely there’s another option?

Why your hate for Dr. Mantis Toboggan?

adidas Koln, out tomorrow or Saturday, varies in different stores.

A decent pair these, I’ve spent way too much on trainers out of boredom this year so I’ve had to pass on them unfortunately

I never do these pre-orders or even pay full price for adidas tbh, but I'm seriously tempted with these!

If you’re on the adidas website when they release you’ll get them otherwise the raffles are your only chance with these I reckon. Very popular pair
