Putting together an outfit every morning is hard enough, and packing for a trip is a whole other ball game. We totally get the struggles of picking the right outfits when there’s so many things to consider. Will you still look good in that shirt after eating all those street food? How many times can you wear your pants without it looking too repetitive? And how much (or little) can you get away with without busting your weight limit?
The most important part of your outfit is – you guessed it – your shoes. A good pair of sneakers is key to tying together your outfit as well as keeping your feet protected from all the walking you’re going to do when you’re exploring a new country. And if you picked the right pair, it would effortlessly go with all your outfits.
Looking to travel overseas soon and still need a pair of good sneakers? You might want to consider these kicks from adidas that we’ve got our eye on. Their latest collections, the Falcon and the Never Made collection, brings all the classic adidas silhouettes back with a modern twist in funky colourways. And you don’t have to worry about the shoes hurting your feet as they are designed to cushion your feet for all-day comfort even though you spent 10 hours pounding down the streets.
We’ve also gone ahead and put together a few other pieces from the adidas Originals collection for some style inspiration.
FEEDING THE CAMERA ‘GRAM
Yes, we’re very, very aware that the toughest part about choosing outfits is looking good for the ‘gram. Because if you didn’t post it, did it really happen?
Effortlessly stand out in all the group photos with bold colours. adidas has revived their classic 90s runner shoe, the Falcon in new colourways in a chunky silhouette that reminds us of those bright neon lights from the 90s rave scene. Match your loud shoes with statement pieces like this OG tee with bold stripes running down the shoulders. Crops and hoodies are also great picks as they can easily be stuffed into duffel bags and doesn’t crumple. Of course, who can forget the quintessential cross-body pack as well?

But you don’t have to compromise practicality for style with adidas Originals’ wide range of apparel. They’ve even got all the other travelling accessories like caps, backpacks and socks in all the latest trendy styles to fully kit you out.
Whoever said black is boring should go back to fashion school; black never goes out of style. Stick to a simple monochrome colour palate to keep you looking sleek and stylish even when you’re on the peak of some mountain. And black is a good choice as stains and dirt don’t show up as easily as compared to other colours! Don’t forget to invest in a sturdy backpack, with loads of compartments for easy access to all your travel necessities and the Falcon, which also comes in a black and white colourway. Your feet will thank you for giving it good support to last an intense day of walking.
