So you love your Ultraboosts and want to wear them year-round? Understandable. The problem is that lightweight uppers aren’t really best-suited to cold weather. That doesn’t have to result in retiring your favorite silhouettes, though.
By introducing a few weather-ready upgrades to a host of its favorites, adidas’ COLD.RDY and WINTER.RDY apparel and footwear means you can sport your favorite Three Stripes gear in the toughest of conditions.
From down jackets ready for sub-zero expeditions to weatherproofed sneakers, this range of winter-ready pieces is not only highly functional but boasts serious techwear prowess in terms of visuals too. Don’t wait for the blizzards to start before you upgrade your winter wardrobe, get in there early with the help of adidas COLD.RDY.
This long down parka could be the coat of the year. Add a kimono-style top layer when the weather gets seriously dismal for added warmth coverage. The top layer even includes an extendable face mask.
The hiking gear looks continues to grow and, as the weather worsens, it makes sense. Taped seams and high-performance fabrics are ubiquitous, so sorting the real from the imitators is important. The adidas Terrex Trailmaker COLD.RDY Hiking Shoes are built to a mid-level so you can go from city to actual mountain without a second thought. A High-Traxion outsole along with an insulated, PrimaLoft layered upper give this shoe all-weather credentials.
Consider this Prime COLD.RDY Down Vest a statement of intent for adidas. This innovative and striking piece says, “We’re coming for techwear.” A three-in-one construction combines three layers of insulation as well as a crossbody bag. Overlapping down baffles lock in heat, but adjustable features allow you to loosen baffles to regulate your temperature.
Some jackets are made for more, and this is one of them. The COLD.RDY down jacket is a monumental design made up of two insulating layers as well as an overlay jacket for an optional style switch. High-loft down overlaps to effectively seal in heat while also being super lightweight. Visually, this piece taps effortlessly into the raging techwear trend.
We’ve already touched upon the shortfalls of the adidas Ultraboost during winter, but you can get ready to ignore all of that. This pair of Ultraboost WINTER.RDY runners feature a speed-lacing system and a Boost midsole that’s been topped by a hard-wearing engineered outsole. The Primeknit upper has been upgraded with a winter finish to offer water-repellency.
Do not fear the winter morning run. The COLD.RDY Training Crew is cut from insulated, moisture-managing COLD.RDY fabrics which alternate throughout. Both fabrics are based on recycled polyester, one with French terry fleece and the other with an elastic double-knit blend.
If there’s ever been a time that you’d want to swap your gym workout for a spacious outdoor session, it’s probably right now. Hit your local green space without trepidation thanks to these insulated training pants. Cut from a stretch fabric for free movement, this pair insulates and wicks moisture.
Running in winter kicks up a couple of problems: you want to avoid wet feet at all costs, so the materials need to stand up to adverse conditions, but you also need a substantial sole unit for grip which doesn’t weigh you down. The adidas Supernova WINTER.RDY Shoes fit the bill with breathable, water-repellant uppers and dual cushioning to the sole unit for stability and comfort.
We’re seeing a new age of knitwear entering the ranks, and adidas is no stranger to the possibilities of technical knits. The Prime COLD.RDY Top Crew Sweatshirt boasts lightweight insulation and layered cuffs to offer extra warmth when it’s needed.
Ankle cuffs lock in heat to make sure you can focus fully on your cold-weather workouts with no chance of early-finish excuses. The insulating COLD.RDY fabric offers a hint of stretch so lunges and squats are definitely still on the cards.
Designed as a golf jacket, the adidas Frostguard Insulated Jacket affords a full range of movement for your swing. This makes it perfect for all types of workout, from running to tennis. Down insulation padding to the body locks in heat where it matters while lightweight recycled polyester arms are as free-moving as possible.
