A million dollars is a slight exaggeration, but when simply posting a selfie wins you £200 worth ofAdidas Originals Clothing it really is Christmas come early! No doubt you will have seen certain students kitted out in head to toe Adidas, running around campus toting life sized Instagram frames and yelling about ‘AllinForLeeds’ hashtags. This was part of Adidas’ latest competition ‘Be in The Line Up’ where entrants tweeted or uploaded a selfie on Instagram showcasing their best street style with the hashtag #allinforleeds.
As judges of the competition, The Gryphon’s Style Editors headed down to the Adidas store to meet the five winners whilst they picked out their Originals outfits. Competition winner Josie snapped up the red and white archived sweater, while the boys went for the Swiss-style winter coat and classic Gazelle training shoes. Sophie made a beeline for the fluoro Rita Ora sweater and leopard print trainers, topping off her outfit with a neon yellow bum-bag. Sophie justified her choices by their suitability for a night out at Beaverworks. This is why we love Adidas Originals; it is a collection that is bang-on the Leeds student aesthetic, transitioning perfectly from day wear, to the gym and even nights out. Fashionable, comfortable and reassuringly affordable (add in the 20% in-store discount). We salute you if you manage to say no!
