This week, FN’s sneaker columnist, Stacey Griffith — senior master instructor at SoulCycle — goes for the Adidas Dragon sneaker. See her thoughts on the style below:
My obsession with most of my sneakers goes way beyond the purchase. For this vintage Adidas shoe, my love goes deep. Starting with the most obvious reason, which is my SL (Stacey Lynn) initials on them.
This shoe brings up some amazing memories for me: As track athlete, I and my teammates all adored this style, but only in blue, red and white! This particular gray, black and blue combo is part of a second rendition, which works for me with a pair of R13 skinny jeans from Blue & Cream and a Paris collectible top from Colette.
Any vintage Adidas shoe can add a classic look to your wardrobe — you just have to make sure you pair it with the right jeans and a great T-shirt. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can always throw on a leather jacket in the same color as the suede.
