adidas' almost constant stream of new drops, from sought-after sneaker collaborations to general-release apparel, means that the brand doesn't usually enter the conversation when it comes to 'new-season' pieces.
Sportswear has never functioned in the same seasonal structure as high fashion but, as the two worlds blend more and more, that distinction is becoming much less obvious. I mean, adidas released a Spring collection this year.
The adidas Spring collection isn’t so much a dedicated Spring/Summer drop, but more an edit of pieces that work perfectly in spring AKA. the most confusing season of the year.
Retro tracksuits sit alongside versatile shorts, accessories, and classic kicks to act as a distillation of everything that is good about the run-up to summer. Below, we've put together 10 of our most essential pieces from the adidas Spring collection.

Stokd Tee Flowe
Spring is the season when we rediscover the joy of wearing T-shirts outside again. For that, you need to have a range of fire tees at the ready, though.
Aeroready Designed 2 Move Shorts
When it comes to shorts, we're firm believers in the sports short. A shorter inseam and lighter materials make sports shorts a staple in spring and summer.
The adidas Busenitz has been a fixture of the Three Stripes output for many years now and never been a headliner. It's a versatile, underrated silhouette that we'll be giving a lot of airtime to this season.
Non-Dye Sport Hip Pack
We love a retro colorway as much as the next, but the non-dye pieces in the adidas Spring collection are the perfect way to add accessories to an outfit without running the risk of overloading it.
But if you do want a pitch-perfect retro colorway, then look no further than this Adicolor tracksuit. Geometric lines of color-blocking offer dynamism to the design which looks great in muted blue, maroon, and green.
Get in there early and do it properly: buy one good cap and then you don't need to stress about it for the rest of the season.
Essentials Feelvivid Hoodie
It's worth remembering that we're not safely into summer yet. The adidas Spring collection still has some sensible propositions in it: a classic black logo hoodie, for example.
It's not easy to make a pair of camo pants that doesn't overpower an outfit. Looking to a greyscale color palette is the key to this pair's success.
Another silhouette that definitely doesn't get enough love. The adidas Nizza is a skating shoe with endless possibilities in spring and summer.
