This Grandma Wearing Adidas Sneakers Is Winning the Internet

This picture of a grandmother wearing Adidas kicks is proof that you’re never too old to add some sneaker style to your wardrobe.

The image, which was shared to Reddit yesterday, shows user gl0w’s 90-year-old grandmother wearing a women’s-exclusive Mystery Red style of the Adidas Ultra Boost 3.0.

“Surprised my grandma with some Ultra Boosts, and she wanted a photo,” the user said. “She was amazed at how light and comfortable they are.”

“She got really excited, because she felt like she could walk so much faster than when she was wearing her older shoes, especially on the steeper parts of the street,” the user told FN.

As of today, the image has more than 6,800 upvotes, making it the 10th-highest-ranking post of all time on Reddit’s sneaker subforum.
