Adidas Style Essentials Sneakers

Adidas has released another line of shoes that make a further step away from the classic sport oriented footwear it is well known for. This new line joins a growing trend of sneakers that’s aimed at young people who want to look cool and trendy, without really doing the sport thing.

This move is the result of a trend that started about ten years ago, a rush into wearing sportswear on the street.

Adidas already has the high-fashion Y-3 and streetwear-oriented Originals, which have nothing to do with actual sports. The new Adidas Style Essentials was launched to reach those customers who could not afford to throw fortunes on expensive shoes, like the teenagers who depend on their parents for pocket and clothes money. The new Adidas sneakers are sold for $50 to $70.

Historically, people bought athletic shoes because of the sports that were popular at the moment and not because they were actually going to play. Apparel companies realized that and they started manufacturing lifestyle shoes for the general public, at a much lower cost.

Puma was the first to take this path and soon others followed. Now it’s time for Adidas to do the same thing.

Professional shoes are much more expensive because they demand performance. For the average user, style is much more important.

What’s cool is that you and the person next to you can be wearing sneakers, but you’ll still look different.

The content provided is interesting and I just wanted to add a little more on this as this information may help others looking out for some comfortable sports footwear.

Since I follow a daily exercise regime, I give a lot of importance to the shoes I select. I guess some advice on things to look at while buying shoes may help save one from the wrong choice of shoes they end up with while trying to blend style with comfort.

I would advice that its important to not only go with the style of the shoe but also look at the comfort factor. In the short term your shoes may be the best looking but if you end up with a back pain due to a wrong choice based on looks, then surely you are inviting trouble.

A short and sweet advice would be to buy shoes that are not too tight or too loose and that they are exclusively meant for the sport you plan to use it for. This will prevent any injury to your body and also solve back pain problems.
