30 Years of My Adidas

Rewind the clock 30 years to the day when Run DMC walked through concert doors and roamed all over colosseum floors. We are talking about the Adidas original line and there is no original Adidas gang then the crew who began the trend. It has been 30 years since they busted out their track ‘My Adidas’!

We’re not talking about the superstar sneakers that every man, women and child are currently wearing, we’re talking about the full superstar tracksuit and bomber jackets. I used to be ashamed of leaving the house in my track pants, even if that were to gather the mail in fear of being spotted. RUN DMC made Adidas cool and now Rihanna, Gigi and Bella Hadid are doing the exact same thing! Is this the new RUN DMC?

So fear no more of looking ‘uncool’ for wearing Adidas original tracksuits like biff from back to the future, as it has done its time on the bench and back on the clothing racks. I have a wedding this weekend and I will be rocking an Adidas original tracksuit …at least to the rehearsal dinner.
