Our Affordable Alternatives series continues, spotlighting a set of sporty windbreakers along the lines of those seen in Palace’s latest collaboration with adidas Originals.
Our Affordable Alternatives series aims to bring our readers reasonably-priced versions of typically high-priced fashion items, saving you money in your ongoing pursuit of style.
The second installment of adidas’s collaboration with UK skate sensation Palace caused furore upon release, with a throwback ’90s aesthetic that leaned heavily on nylon and polyester tracksuits. While the collab is long sold out and cost a premium thanks to the gratuitous use of 3M and technically proficient fabrics, we’ve highlighted a set of similarly sporty windbreakers that are available right now, at a fraction of the price.
Check out the pieces below and head over to our Affordable Alternatives series for more reasonably-priced high fashion pieces – including spring sneakers, raincoats under $100, bomber jackets, elongated tees and duffel bags, amongst others.
If you can live without the hood, adidas’s mainline serves up a zip-up track jacket with an engineered poly-mesh shell, bold piped detailing and tonal white versions of those iconic three stripes running up the sleeves.
Nike Windrunner Jacket – $85
A classic zip-up style windbreaker with a multi-panel hood, Nike’s poly-shell Windrunner jacket sports a mesh lining for breathability and bold two-tone color blocking.
PUMA Printed Windbreaker – $75
A printed poly taffeta shell sports a dégradé grid pattern if you like to keep things more graphic.
If you want to take reflective detailing to the next level, Imperial Motion drops a 1/4 zip-up windbreaker with a shell crafted entirely from the reflective material.
