SNEAKER UPDATE: ADIDAS CONTINENTAL 80 VULC

By Steven Potter, 5 August 2019

If your add-to-bag rate for new sneakers is becoming an issue, we’re sorry but very much not sorry for this next piece of info. A new drop from the ever-cool adidas Originals collection has just landed on ASOS. What's more, the latest sneaker – the Continental 80 Vulc – is a sweet 80s throwback updated with a skater-style vulcanised sole, which just means they’ve been given a tough-but-still-flexible makeover. Ideal.

For those of you who like to keep your crep collection low-key but still fresh AF, the almost-all-white vulcs above are a great start. And as they'll pretty much match everything you already own, the styling options are endless. A sporty lightweight jacket-and-skirt combo from adi is a great place to start though, particularly for conquering those tricky transitional climes.

If, however, you like to make more of a statement with your kicks, there’s no bolder colourway than the sunburst yellow. Immediately noticeable, it’s an easy way to top off your look. Keep adi’s sportswear-based roots peaking nicely with a varsity-style shirt and comfy joggers – and that's your casual look locked down all the way through to winter.
