These new Adidas track tops are more Elton John than Lion King

By Gerald Lynch on May 31st, 2012

Can you feel the love tonight for these new Adidas animal-themed track tops? We’re finding it a bit tough. Part of the Adidas Originals range which the brand are pushing heavily ahead of one of the busiest summer’s of sport in recent history, they’re emblazoned with animal prints relating to different sporting nations.

So, us Brits for instance get a red and white top with one of the three lions splashed over the front, while Germany’s equivalent has their eagle.

Is it just us, or are they a bit naff? They’re less patriotic than they are cast offs from Steve Irwin’s wardrobe. Watch it Adidas; you’re a few short steps away from “Three Wolf Moon” here.

Perhaps the prints look good when seen in real life, but there’s none of the retro subtlety that we usually associate with the line. To us they look like the sort of knock-off crap you’d find on a market stall.

Still, if you’re interested, you can click here to find out more.
