Highsnobiety

Walking your dog? Exploring a new city? Parkour in the park? If you’re looking for a sneaker for all of these, then adidas Sportswear has got you sorted.

After a little deep-dive into adidas Sportswear’s new X_PLRBOOST, it’s clear that the brand is all about leveling up comfort with the recently released silhouette. With ergonomic features like a molded heel, soft neoprene collar, and the playful engineered mesh, the X_PLRBOOST is made for movement.

We put the shoe to the test in two of Europe’s most fast-paced cities with two natives who spent the afternoon rediscovering their own neighborhoods.

Tsellot

Born and raised in Berlin, Tsellot is all about her hometown. The multi-hyphenate is not only a content creator but a host, presenter, member of Black and FLINTA outdoor club Black Canary (030), and a fearless fashion icon. To top it all of, Tsellot's a die-hard fan of Berlin's Hertha BSC football club and a player in her own right, so she pretty much embodies being on the go to a tee. She spent the afternoon in her area styling the lighter X_PLRBOOST colorway with some baggy cargo pants, a navy gilet, and a graphic beanie, the perfect cozy fit for those (unfortunately) cooler Spring days. Don't forget the Y2K-inspired sunnies either to finish the fit!

Edgar Barros Jr

You only need to glance at his Instagram to know that Frenchman Edgar Barros Jr has a versatile style that matches his mood. Football player for A.S. Vitré club in Ille-et-Vilaine in Rennes, Barros Jr is like Tsellot — always moving and always on his A-game. Here he steps around the streets of Paris in a head-to-toe all-black look (not uncalled for in the City of Love), using the X_PLRBOOST to add a bit of brightness and contrast to his get-up.

Shop the adidas Sportswear X_PLRBOOST online at adidas.com and in select adidas stores.
