Color and Shape at Adidas

blog 2.23.14

As an artist, I have a deep appreciation for the use of color and shapes in design. I was impressed by the use of both at an Adidas Warehouse Sale in Oaks, Philadelphia that my husband found in the paper a few weeks back.

This was my first visit to a “warehouse” sale which took place at an Expo Center and presented plenty of options for those looking for both sports and leisure fashions. I love the brightly colored high-tops for biking around the city and the comfortable track-suits for travel, running errands, or over yoga clothes. I’m far from a sneaker junky, wearing the same pair for about ten years before I invested in a new pair, but I do love the design aesthetic of combining bright color and interesting shapes to functional attire.


I did indulge in one pair of sneakers for walking around the city and bike riding and one track suit for flying and weekend chill-time with the husband. Our motto is to live simply so for every item that is brought into the house, a similar item is donated or sold at the flea market. We also like to say, treat yourself, don’t cheat yourself!
