Even though surfers don’t wear t-shirts to surf, and they don’t wear wetsuits on the streets, surf style has been quite perfectly adapted for the streets for decades. However, the transitional phase between tearing through the slopes in highly technical, avalanche-ready jackets and padded pants and hanging out at the lodge or on the streets post shredding has yet to be filled. In comes adidas Originals and Burton to the rescue, with a collaborative collection that translates slope style for the street and vice versa.
The collection debuted at the Burton 2010 preview, and we had brought you a quick peek at footwear from the collection. Here comes a closer look at the apparel line-up which includes adidas Originals iconic track suits infused with Burton’s Vermont aesthetics, paneled corduroy button down with leather accents, snowboarding inspired jersey overall, and a elongated shell trench that comes with technical details such as taped zippers, adjustable hood and hem, and padded lining.
The collaborative collection is named the adidas Originals x Burton GluÌˆhwein (with GluÌˆhwein referring to a special German mulled wine typically consumed in the wintertime), and thoughtful details such as collaborative leather patches, leather zipper pulls and neck label complete the collection. So, lounge in a soft fleece hoodie with a printed lining of the slopes after your run, and don’t never leave your passion for snowboarding on the slopes when you leave. Check out the collection, and remember you can always take the slopes with you back to the streets.
