But on a serious note, have you noticed how adidas started 2014 with probably the best news an adidas fan could ever receive? Myself, included!
For all we know, that "A" on my Topman jacket probably meant adidas. Why not since Topshop has a collaboration coming out with the brand this summer?

ADIDAS ORIGINALS BRINGS BACK THE STAN SMITH
A global fashion icon is reborn in Spring/Summer '14 as the legendary Stan Smith returns from its sabbatical. Removed from the shelves for the past few seasons, the classic silhouette has been re-invigorated and updated for the modern day, while still staying true to the look and shape of the original.
ADIDAS TRANSFORMS THE ICONIC SUPERNOVA GLIDE WITH BOOST
Launched earlier this year, BOOST provides a higher energy return than any other foam cushioning material in the running industry. The Supernova Glide has endured as one of adidas' most successful technical running shoes, highlighted by adidas' Torsion System, a Continental rubber outsole and an engineered mesh upper. With the addition of adidas' BOOST superior cushioning, the latest edition of Supernova Glide is built to provide runners with the ultimate experience.
THE ICONIC COPA MUNDIAL DANCES TO THE RHYTHM OF SAMBA
adidas is proud to unveil the Samba Copa Mundial collection: a series of uniquely styled boots build on the colourful Samba line previously launched at the end of last year and mixes it up with the iconic Copa Mundial —the best-selling boot in football history.
The Samba Copa Mundial is available for purchase in Bootcamp stores and retails at Php9,595.
ADIDAS ORIGINALS BY JEREMY SCOTT SS14
The Spring Summer 2014 collection celebrates the decade long collaboration between legendary designer Jeremy Scott and adidas. While the collection cements the creative relationship between the two, Scott refuses to rest on his laurels. Instead, the New York-based designer pushes ahead with his luxury sportswear vision and, as per usual, the focus lies on bold colours, qualitative fabrics and intricate prints. Scott's signature design is visible throughout the collection, and one of the key themes for SS14 is the pearl embroidery tradition from London. The 'Pearlies', a nick name for East End street traders wearing suits decorated with pearl buttons, emerged in the late 18th century and peaked in the 1970s. For SS14, Scott put hand-stitched pearl buttons on heavy weight jackets and matching tracksuit bottoms with bondage details.
Scott is also sticking to the UK with his SS14 prints - and incorporating himself into the mix. All-over adidas logo prints are crowned with a digital photo print of Scott with a Union Jack face paint. Moving back to the US, Scott also honours his classic American sportswear heritage by offering a cropped and colourful football jersey with all-over haberdashery details and plastic numbers with two-tone gel inside, and a baseball shirt with all-over lace versions in monochrome tones and a grosgrain trim and satin-stitched adidas logo.
Other main pattern themes include the winged dollar sign, florals and leopard prints. All of them classic Jeremy Scott patterns, they have been updated to fit the Spring Summer 2014 aesthetic. Colour-wise Scott re-focuses on the neon palette, either with a bomber jacket in yellow or perforated mesh tops and shorts in orange and green shades. For the bottom half, Scott revitalises the shorts silhouette; denim hot pants with orange velcro belt and the jogger sweat pant with full length sleeves attached to the sides dominate the category.
The SS14 footwear delves into luxury streetwear with the JS Instinct style appearing with a rainbow effect on a premium Italian leather, and the classic Rod Laver shoe model showing up in gold hues and lace jewellery. Newcomers include the TALL BOY shoe model, which - as the name indicates - is big in both size and ambition. Scott's UK inspiration also colours the footwear through a bold Union Jack print on the adidas Letter Instinct trainer, which also comes in a leopard print. While the JS Profi Wedge shoe model continues the lace theme, the JS Wings Easy Five style comes in premium smooth gold leather for women, and the iconic Bones trainer is back with multi-coloured leather and gold Trefoil logo in the font, perfectly summing up not only the key themes for SS14 but also the core design DNA of the Jeremy Scott x adidas brand.
ADIDAS UNLEASHES EXPLOSIVE ENERGY WITH SPRINGBLADE
adidas launches Springblade in the Philippines, the first running shoe with individually tuned blades engineered to help propel runners forward with one of the most effective returns in the industry.
Unlike standard EVA midsoles that deliver energy return in a vertical direction, Springblade features 16 forward angled blades made out of a high-tech polymer. The highly elastic blades instantaneously react to any environment, compressing and releasing energy to create an efficient push-off that feels like you have springs under your feet.
Springblade is available for Php8,995 at adidas Bonifacio High Street, Mall of Asia and Planet Sports Power Plant (Rockwell).
