Years ago, my dad (who was a fashionisto in his own right) had a pretty enviable weekend uniform: crisp white polo shirt half-tucked into a pair of light-washed denim – with aviator sunglasses, a vintage Rolex, and Adidas sneakers. But not just any sneaker… the Adidas Originals Stan Smith. Fast forward twenty years and I’ve found myself emulating that same uniform in my own life – right down to the Adidas sneakers!
Recently, I ducked into Finish Line at Queens Center to pick up a few items, including my seasonal pair of cobalt Originals Stan Smith sneakers and a pair of the more modern Adidas Tubular Shadow (in the light brown colorway)! Finish Line has always been one of my favorite places to shop new kicks and I’d imagine just about any sneakerhead (where y’all at?!) would agree! Finish Line always has the most extensive selection and I know I’m always going to go home with a few more pairs of shoes than I intended… but really, the selection is that good.
With Christmas just around the corner, I figured I’d round up some of my absolute favorites from Finish Line’s site to nudge you in the right direction, whether you’re looking for last-minute gifts or a little something for yourself (which, let’s be honest, is the best kind of gift) – Finish Line has got you covered!
