Comment

In late October, Washington Commanders quarterback Taylor Heinicke was in the practice room after a game against the Green Bay Packers when an idea popped up. The win had given him a bonus – he wins $125,000 every time he plays at least 60% of the snaps in a win – and that day he unwittingly sparked what he now calls “a fun little tradition.” “.

In 2020, when Washington signed Heinicke as a midlife quarterback, he had two pairs of sneakers: a Vans and a Converse. His teammates needled him, telling him to get more swag. The following year he started buying Nike Air Jordans, and by fall he had about 20 pairs.

In the training room in October, Heinicke picked out a pair of green and yellow Oregon 5 Jordans, and in the weeks that followed, as he helped kickstart the Commanders’ season, he bought Jordans in the colors teams he beat: Georgetown 1 blue and white for Indianapolis, metallic green 4 for Philadelphia, Travis Scott 4 blue for Houston. After the Eagles upset, Heinicke also bought shoes for his offensive linemen, and after dominating the Texans, tight ends.

Commanders rout lowly Texans as Taylor Heinicke gets starting role

“It’s kind of Taylor’s shtick right now…and his teammates are reacting,” coach Ron Rivera said.

Rivera laughed as he remembered a few defensive players yelling at Heinicke — “Hey, why don’t you take some from us?” — and said he recently “a little poked fun” at his quarterback by pulling out a pair of Gray Pine Green 1s and donning a Heinicke t-shirt.

By NFL standards, the Jordans are a relatively ordinary celebration. Some commanders have toasted milestones with a new home or a Rolls-Royce, but for Heinicke, whose base salary is $1.5 million, the splurges mostly sell for around $150. The quarterback’s shoe game, like his feisty style of play, seems to have endeared him to his teammates, and he’s joined a relatively select group of commanders – headlined by wide receivers Cam Sims and Dyami Brown, special teams ace Jeremy Reaves and defensive tackle. Daron Payne – who seriously collects Jordans.

“I wouldn’t say it’s a culture [in the locker room] because there are really only a few of us who go shoe shopping,” Brown said. He added that running back Antonio Gibson is “trying to keep up” but because he sometimes wears a pair of cheetah-print Adidas that “isn’t it” he doesn’t qualify. (Brown and quarterback Sam Howell both attended the University of North Carolina and received “player-exclusive” shoes because the brand’s namesake, Michael Jordan, also went there.)

In the commanders’ locker room, footwear preferences vary. Many players seem to enjoy the comfort of slides, and some leave plastic tags on their sneakers as a status symbol. Defensive end Chase Young likes to lift without shoes because it helps strengthen his once weak ankles. Veteran linebacker Jon Bostic said if he’s not on cleats, he’s on Crocs, and offensive lineman Wes Schweitzer, a climber, likes five-finger shoes. Cornerback Benjamin St-Juste sometimes wears luxury fashion brand Off-White shoes, and left tackle Charles Leno Jr. browses Birkenstocks, Crocs and Jordans. Third-year safety Kam Curl said he bought a few pairs of shoes his rookie season, including all-white Air Force 1s, but none since because, he insisted, “I’m not not a sneakerhead.”

“I don’t really care about shoes,” he added, noting that no matter what he wears, he is confident. “I put that s— on.”

Sims, one of the Jordans collectors, said his father started his obsession. In a favorite baby photo, Sims wore 12 cherries, but growing up he could only get one pair of sneakers and one pair of basketball shoes a year. In high school, when his feet stopped growing, he started saving up his shoes, and his rookie year in the NFL, he said, he went on a spending spree, “getting all the shoes I didn’t. couldn’t get at the time”.

Now Sims has about 250 pairs. They’re spread around the closets of his house, his dad, mom, and cousins, and recently in the locker room he wore a pair of low-top Jordans he created with rapper Travis Scott, which usually go for around $1,200. .

“I’m just a shoe guy,” Sims said. “When you see a person, the first thing you notice is probably their feet, or their teeth, or their face. … I want you to see my shoes, so you’re like, ‘Ah, he’s got a nice pair of shoes on. ‘

Taylor Heinicke spent the offseason building his game – and his Legos

Wide receiver Curtis Samuel, who grilled a reporter earlier this season for wearing sandals that looked like “grill shoes,” said he doesn’t usually buy Jordans.

“I’m cheap,” he explained. But once in Miami, he visited Flight Club, an upscale sneaker consignment store. He bought a pair of Chicago Bulls 1 for around $550. Then, as he was packing his bags to return home to North Carolina, he couldn’t find them.

“I had to buy them again!” Samuel said. “I was a little upset, but it happens. I’m probably the only guy who [loses] sneakers.”

Practice squad wide receiver Marken Michel, who said he wears Uggs “every day,” recently made an exception. On Nov. 17, Founder’s Day of the historically black Omega Psi Phi fraternity, Michel wore a pair of red high-top Jordans, which he said he only bought because Brown “gave me a hard time with my shoes. “.

“Never!” Brown protested.

“He got every shoe,” Michel said of Brown. “So I went to get this.”

“Now we’re lying,” Brown said, rolling her eyes.

“I’m not going to lie,” said Michel, smiling. “I feel pretty cool in them.”

Brown accused Michel, who prides himself on being thrifty, of recently wearing Dior Jordan 1 Retro Lows, which can cost north of $10,000. Michel looked dismayed. Brown called Sims and Heinicke. Did they really believe, as Michel claimed, that these were his first pair of Jordans?

Heinicke frowned, walked over to his locker and pulled out a pair of high-tops., seeming to refute Michel’s assertion. In the shouts that followed – “You are all lying!” said Michel — it was becoming impossible to tell who was clowning around with whom. Brown wanted a reporter to think Michel was one of the hottest players on the team; Michel wanted to preserve his reputation for frugality.

Later, Heinicke told a reporter about Brown and Sims, “Don’t let those two fool you. These two have the most shoes on the team.

Last week, at a press conference, Heinicke joked that after that successful streak, he now had too many Jordans.

“I’m not going to answer that,” he said, smiling. If Washington is lucky, Heinicke’s tradition will continue and he will buy himself and his teammates Jordans for weeks to come.

Windsor Police said they were continuing efforts to locate 13-year-old Mackenna Deslippe-McLellan, who was last seen entering a gray SUV in South Windsor at 8.30am on November 14.

Police say the vehicle could be a Ford Flex, but could not confirm the make of the vehicle. They later said they were looking for a dark-colored Nissan Rogue that “might be” linked to the girl’s disappearance.

According to police, Deslippe-McLellan was last seen wearing “a black Metallica t-shirt, black track pants and black Adidas shoes.”

Mackenna Deslippe-McLellan was last seen wearing a black Metallica t-shirt, black track pants and black Adidas shoes, police say. (Windsor Police)

Staff Sgt. Windsor Police’s Joe Faddoul said the Major Crimes Unit was involved in the investigation.

He said police were considering the possibility that Deslippe-McLellan’s disappearance was linked to human trafficking, but did not want to rule out other possibilities.

“We don’t become visionary in how we approach this. Our main goal at this point is to find her,” he said.

Faddoul said there were no suspects in Deslippe-McLellan’s disappearance and she is currently being considered a runaway.

He said police were scouring downtown for leads and possible footage related to the case, and police had reason to believe Deslippe-McLellan was still in the Windsor area.

Eric Deslippe, Deslippe-McLellan’s father, said a group of people looking for him would gather on Ouellette Avenue and Riverside Drive West tonight to post and distribute missing persons flyers.

Deslippe is working with Windsor Police and the OPP to find his daughter, but said he wanted to do more to help.

“I want to do something other than step back and hand over the reins to someone else,” he said.

Deslippe said if he could talk to his daughter now, he would say, “Come home, we love you. Hope you’re safe.”

‘It’s ugly’: Football fans harshly criticize and praise World Cup fashion https://adidastennishu.com/its-ugly-football-fans-harshly-criticize-and-praise-world-cup-fashion/ Tue, 08 Nov 2022 22:30:00 +0000 https://adidastennishu.com/its-ugly-football-fans-harshly-criticize-and-praise-world-cup-fashion/ Puma, you’re all stuck.

Puma, you’re all stuck. Nike, what have you done in the United States and Canada? Adidas, you’re making some style waves.

With millions of dollars at stake in retail sales, this year’s World Cup in Qatar has football fans sizing up the jersey – and what to buy. So far, no runaway winner could earn icon status like Nigeria’s bright green, chevron shirt sold out in minutes at the last tournament in 2018.

Which kits certainly don’t dazzle in the eyes of some hardcore fans – and some outspoken players? Nike’s effort for Team USA, which failed to qualify four years ago. An enlarged and simple country crest sits centrally on white home shirts perceived as bland, as opposed to classic. Nike moved their swoosh logo to both sleeves.

A blue neck graphic has led to mocking comparisons to the Stay Puft marshmallow man of “Ghostbusters” fame. And the USA away kit includes ice-tinted black Rorschach spots against royal blue.

“It’s ugly,” said 33-year-old fan Ryan Bender of the former. “The ones on the outside look like training shirts.”

Bender is a longtime soccer player, youth coach, and jersey collector in Los Angeles. It had few niceties in general for many of the kits from the big three outfits: Nike (13 countries), Adidas (7) and Puma (6). This is particularly the case for the range of front boxes, shields and other containers where numbers will go courtesy of Puma on away kits for Senegal, Morocco, Uruguay and more.

Puma is particularly angry with Switzerland’s QR symbol. The overall idea, Puma said, was to highlight the number of players. It’s also been compared among curmudgeons to the iPhone’s calendar icon.

“There is a lot of lack of creativity there. And to be honest, a lot of them look like jerseys you’d find at a roadside store,” Bender said of Puma’s kits.

While Bender has a few favorites, and he’s not the only one who mocks American jerseys, not everyone is a hater at the World Cup draws every four years on jerseys. . The top three companies are joined by six other brands with one country each. Nike, Puma and Adidas have made the use of recycled materials a priority.

“The Nike and Puma kits are stunning,” said Aron Solomon, 55, of Montreal. “Nike did a great job of bringing clean lines and just the right shade of color. For example, the Qatar home kit.

It referenced the host’s maroon kit with a jagged line of white triangles lining the sleeves in a design evoking the country’s flag. Think shark teeth.

Denmark have bitten Qatar by unveiling a black shirt to go with two other kits. The black shirts, with the logo of the manufacturer Hummel faded, pay tribute to the migrant workers who died during the construction work of the tournament.

As for his own country, Canada, Solomon doesn’t care that the rejuvenated Reds will take to the pitch for their first World Cup appearance in 36 years wearing the same template-based kits they’ve had since June 2021. The jerseys are traditional red and white with a maple leaf crest.

Like some American players who speak publicly about their outfits, Canadian defender Sam Adekugbe is disappointed.

“I just feel like every team should have a new kit for the World Cup because it’s a symbolic event. I don’t hate it, but I would have liked to have a new kit, just because it is something to cherish,” he told The Athletic.

Nike cites a different design cycle for Canada as the reason the country is going without.

Solomon doesn’t like Adidas-designed shirts, especially home shirts from mighty Germany, where he lived for four years. It features a fierce wide black vertical stripe down the center against a white background as a tribute to the country’s 1908 home shirt.

“It looks like they’re wearing a bib,” he said.

The Adidas shirts of four-time World Cup champion Germany, as well as Argentina, Mexico and other countries they have outfitted, feature the company’s signature triple-line trim on the shoulders in different colors. Kind of like sports shoulder pads.

Perhaps the most polarizing kit in the competition is Mexico’s away look, which some consider too flashy and others think it will last like Nigeria’s shirts last time out. The cream white kit has an all over red design of Mixtec art outlines to celebrate Mexico’s fighting spirit. There’s a nod inside the back collar to the pre-Columbian deity Quetzalcoatl (so named by the Aztecs), aka the Feathered Serpent.

“Those are my favorites from the whole tournament,” said Khloe Lewis, 27, a soccer fan from Somerville, Massachusetts. “I love the pattern and the contrast, but also that it’s inspired by historic and traditional Mexican design.”

As a hot topic, the World Cup kit debate often rages among fans yearning for their own shirt identity.

“The kits reach the emotions. It’s something that’s close to people’s hearts and it makes them very, very vocal about them,” said Mateo Kossman, senior product manager for the Adidas football apparel team who worked on the Mexico shirts. .

On November 20, when the World Cup kicks off, football will dominate at the Das Beer Garden sports bar in Jupiter, Florida. Growing up in Caracas, 44-year-old co-owner Alex Marquez started playing the Beautiful Game as a freshman. He puts down roots for the United States, Venezuela and Spain, the latter country of origin of his parents.

Marquez is pleased with the classic Spain home shirt in red from Adidas, worn with navy blue shorts and socks. The away kit – with travel generally being more adventurous – is another story. It has light blue swirls with faint number lines on a white background and the bright colors of the country’s red and yellow flag for the shoulder stripes in a grand show of disharmony.

“It’s like the thing that goes around a baby’s crib,” Marquez said of the whirlwinds.

The Four On Four blog called the look exquisite, calling the wavy design a “geometric jellyfish pattern.”

Argentina have changed it, in terms of color, for their away shirts. Adidas released a classic white and blue striped home kit, but for the first time in the country’s history changed to a vibrant purple for the away shirt. It depicts the May sun and its long rays from the country’s flag, although the rays and a background design look like flames. Purple is meant to represent gender equality, as well as overall diversity and inclusion. And the Adidas triple lines on the shoulders match!

How has purple played among World Cup fans?

“Like everything we create, it’s important that the story is understood and told,” said Andrew Dolan, a senior product manager at Adidas who worked on the Argentina shirts. “I think everyone appreciates what we’re trying to do.”

At 10, Zain Ennaoui is a small fan with big opinions on football shirts. About the new purple for Argentina, which has shaken some football fans, the fifth-year student from Brooklyn politely said: “It’s good in its own way.”

Zain supports Morocco, where his father is from, but he too enjoys extravaganzas outside of Mexico. He understands that most of the shirts among the 32 countries heading to Qatar have cultural significance. That said, South Korea’s many-coloured away kit (black with yellow, blue and red brush strokes) is a tough sell for him, despite his nod to Taegeukgi, the symbol on the country’s flag. .

“It’s like someone thought it was a good idea to get a paint gun and spray it everywhere. It didn’t work,” Zain said.

It’s a draw on which the look of the United States is more downright despised by critics. Soccer-obsessed Footy Headlines ranked the Canadian tragedy low on the scale of Nike’s efforts. American shirts were second to last.

“Looks like you’d wear it to a Grateful Dead concert,” Kent Gethmann, 38, of Spencer, Iowa, said of the blue and black away jersey.

That, the idea of ​​lending street life to World Cup clothing, might just be the point.

“I would,” Brandon Williams said of the same American kit.

He is a menswear stylist in Los Angeles for celebrities and star athletes, but not yet footballers.

“I would wear it oversized with hoochie daddy shorts (they’re really short), white Nike Air Force Ones and a rear snapback,” Williams said. “I’d throw a sweater over my shoulders like Carlton from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, and I’m ready for Sunday brunch.”

Ali Bin Nasser says he wouldn’t have given ‘Hand of God’ ball to Maradona https://adidastennishu.com/ali-bin-nasser-says-he-wouldnt-have-given-hand-of-god-ball-to-maradona/ Wed, 02 Nov 2022 07:00:00 +0000 https://adidastennishu.com/ali-bin-nasser-says-he-wouldnt-have-given-hand-of-god-ball-to-maradona/ Argentina captain Diego Maradona (l) shakes hands with England captain Peter Shilton (r) as a referee … [+] Ali Bennaceur (c) checks that the match ball is fully inflated and Morera linesman Berny Ulloa (left) looks on (Photo by Peter Robinson/EMPICS via Getty Images) PA Images via Getty Images The ball from the 1986 FIFA […]]]>

The ball from the 1986 FIFA World Cup quarter-final match between Argentina and England is auctioned off by the Tunisian referee who claimed it at the notorious end of the game. He insisted he wouldn’t have given it to match winner Diego Maradona if the player asked for it after the match.

The iconic Adidas Azteca ball was used throughout Argentina’s 2-1 win in Mexico City. Every goal scored in the game has gone down in legend as a defining moment in World Cup history. The first was awarded despite Maradona kicking the ball past England keeper Peter Shilton, the so-called ‘hand of God’. Maradona’s second was a fascinating dribble past five opposing players, commonly referred to as ‘the goal of the century’. Even England’s consolation goal scored by Gary Lineker was ultimately decisive as it earned him the coveted Golden Boot as the tournament’s top scorer ahead of Maradona, who went on to captain Argentina to win the final.

The referee who failed to spot Maradona’s game-changing handball, Ali Bin Nasser (also known as Ali Bennaceur), has been elected to officiate the match by the world governing body of FIFA. Just four years after the Falklands War, the choice of an English-speaking, European or South American arbitrator risked sparking accusations of bias.

After officiating in back-to-back unprecedented Africa Cup of Nations finals as well as the politically sensitive 1985 Under-20 World Cup quarter-final between the Soviet Union and China, the Franco- Arab Bin Nasser thinks FIFA saw him as a safe choice for such a volatile game. Speaking to me from his home in Tunis, Bin Nasser said: “I was an honest referee and did my best.

Bin Nasser dismisses the fact that not being able to speak English or Spanish hindered his ability to communicate with the English and Argentinian players during this match. “In football, the only language we have to speak is that of the whistle, the flags of my colleagues and red and yellow cards. I don’t speak English, but the two words I know are ‘advantage’ and ‘play’. Those were the only two words you would hear me say during the game. , and everything game whose language I don’t speak.”

When Maradona kicked the ball in for the disputed first goal, Bin Nasser insists he handed over the responsibility of making the decision to his linesman, Bulgarian Bogdan Dotchev, who was in line with the play. explained: “The instruction from FIFA before the tournament was that if you couldn’t see an incident clearly, you should take your colleague’s advice if he was in a better position. I didn’t see the goal but I I was going back to center back and I was looking at my colleague the whole time. When he met me at the halfway line, then that was a goal. He had a better view than me at that time.

Dotchev, who died in 2017, has a totally different take on the incident. Speaking to Bulgarian media in 2013, he admitted that “the ghost of that game will probably haunt me to the grave… The refereeing was different back then, the rules were different. The linesmen didn’t have the powers they have now to disallow goals, call fouls for cards etc. I had no right to influence the leader All the power on the pitch was concentrated in the hands of the head referee. Bin Nasser only knew his native French. I speak German and Spanish. As soon as he signals that everything is fine, what can I do? It was only when he started to walk back in the center that I started too.

Dochev and the two other officials working on the game, Berny Ulloa of Costa Rica and Idrissa Traore of Mali, all signed the ball which was kept by Bin Nasser in his Tunisian home for more than three decades. When the jersey worn by Maradona during the second half of the match was auctioned in May by Sotheby’s for a then-world record price of $8.96 million, 78-year-old Bin Nasser began contacting the houses of auction on the possibility of selling the touched ball. by the genius of Maradona.

England-based auctioneers Graham Budd Auctions Ltd. have made the ball the flagship exhibit among more than 300 pieces of World Cup memorabilia currently available for sale through online auction. Their estimate on the ball, which has deflated over time and cannot be reinflated for fear of damaging the inner liner, is between $2.8 and $3.4 million.

As the winner of such a prestigious match, Maradona would have been entitled to ask for the ball in remembrance of his performance, but Bin Nasser is adamant he would not have given it to the player revered worldwide as one of the greatest athletes to honor any sport.

Bin Nasser told me: “FIFA gave very strict instructions to the referees regarding the match ball, the referee must keep the ball. After the match, I asked my colleagues to sign it for me so that I could keep it as a souvenir of the game It was the pinnacle of my career I kept it for 36 years and four months so to answer your question I wouldn’t have given it to him because FIFA m asked to keep the ball.

In August 2015, Maradona visited Bin Nasser at his home in Tunisia and revealed in his 2017 book, Touched by God: how we won the 86 World Cup in Mexicothat he asked the referee to sign a photo of him holding the ball as the two captains shook hands before the game, a photo which Maradona kept in his personal gym.

Bin Nasser revealed to me that he never had the opportunity to reunite Maradona with the ball with which he created sports history, “it was in another room”, but it was full of admiration for the man. “He gave me an Argentine shirt and signed it ‘To Ali, my eternal friend’. You see this genius on the pitch but he’s a totally different human being off the pitch. He’s very humble. C was a warm person who loves the poor and loves his country.”

The “Hand of God” ball is currently up for auction until November 16.

Oct. 24 vs. New Jersey Devils at Prudential Center

Time: 7:00 p.m.

TV: CNBTS

Radio: Capitals Radio 24/7, 106.7 The Fan

Washington Capitals (3-3-0)

New Jersey Devils (3-2-0)

For the first time this season, the Caps will face a Metropolitan Division opponent when they take on the New Jersey Devils on Monday night. The game is the first of four straight road games for Washington, which will end that stretch of road next Monday with another Metro Division game against the Carolina Hurricanes.

Six games into the young season, the Caps have won three of their four home games but have dropped their two road games so far, losing to Toronto and Ottawa on back-to-back Thursday nights. Against Ottawa last Thursday, the Caps put together a solid first period and carved out a 2-0 lead on a pair of power play goals, but were thwarted by the Sens in the final 40 minutes, getting beaten 37-12 during this period. stretch and net five unanswered goals – the last two into an empty net – in a 5-2 loss.

Returning home to host Los Angeles on Saturday night, Washington played a stellar defensive game. In the first 40 minutes of the game, the Capitals limited the Kings to just 13 shots on goal and a paltry total of three high-risk scoring chances, according to naturalstattrick.com. The Los Angeles forwards had combined just seven shots in two periods, only four of which came from inside 30 feet of the Washington net. Three times in the first 40 minutes of games, the Caps kept the Kings from registering a shot on net for more than eight minutes.

But for the second time in as many home games, the Caps found themselves down two goals as they took to the ice for the start of the third. And for the second time in as many home games, the Caps scored a four-goal third period to win a hockey game. In doing so, they became the fifth team in NHL history to record two third-period multi-goal returns in the first six games of the season.

“The score was the score at the end of two,” Caps coach Peter Laviolette said. “Usually [the players] or me or we both have a good sense of when we’re not playing well. Didn’t feel like it was 2-0, so we stuck with it. We tried to press a little harder, to be a little harder on the forecheck.

“The biggest thing was getting more pucks to the net and trying to generate more chances, whether it was first chance, second chance, third chance. So there was definitely room for improvement after two periods, and I thought we did. And it was a great comeback from 2-0 before the third.”

Early in the third, the Caps began throwing pucks at Los Angeles goaltender Jonathan Quick, doing so deliberately and from a distance in many cases. Each of Washington’s first four shots in the third period came off a defender’s stick, and each came from 55 to 91 feet. The fourth of those shots allowed Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick to freeze the puck and the Caps earned a tie in the offensive zone, which led to Washington’s first goal of the game. Nic Dowd at 3:11 of the third.

The Caps held firm. John Carlson had already shot one of those long-range drives — starting at 60 feet — on his first shift of the third period. On his next shift, he threw two more, one at 98 and the other at 97 feet. Then Carlson broke away from a 29-footer in Los Angeles territory, and he glanced at Quick’s glove and tied the game at 4:11. Carlson’s goal, the 134th of his NHL career, ties him to Victor Hedman for sixth among all active defensemen.

“When both teams lock in the neutral zone, it tends to be a bad game,” says Laviolette. “You have to get away with it. If you try to do it, it’s turnovers. So you have to put it behind [the opposition].

“I thought Carly did a good job throwing a bomb from center ice maybe three times, and it kind of exploded [Quick] and these are difficult to manage. We end up scoring a goal, and at least getting the zone time and spending it in the attacking zone.”

In four home games this season, the Caps have averaged 27 shots against per game, ninth-best in the NHL. But in their two road losses, their goaltenders had to work too hard, which they will look to improve with these four road games to close out October.

With Charlie Lindgren making his Washington debut in Toronto on October 13, the Caps allowed 39 shots in a 3-2 loss. A week later, the Senators dumped 44 shots on Washington’s net with Darcy Kuemper in the fold.

Looking to reduce the number of shots on their net against New Jersey on Monday night, the Caps could be facing a daunting task. After five games in the season, the Devils rank second in the league with an average of 39.2 shots on goal per game.

New Jersey is riding a three-game winning streak in Monday’s game against the Capitals. After losing two 5-2 decisions to start the season in Philadelphia and in their home opener against Detroit, the Devils have won three straight, allowing a grand total of four goals against in the process.

In their two losses early in the season, the Devils split guard duties between MacKenzie Blackwood and former Cap Vitek Vanecek, but Blackwood has been between the pipes throughout New Jersey’s current winning streak. Monday’s game against Washington is the start of the Devils’ first back-to-back streak this season; New Jersey travels to Detroit for a Tuesday night date with the Red Wings.

Olivia Wilde was ready for her last gym session. Yesterday, the ‘Don’t Worry Darling’ director was spotted leaving a Los Angeles gym in a signature workout outfit.

For her workout, Wilde stepped out in a white t-shirt emblazoned with the phrase “Don’t Trip” on the front and “Vote Vote Vote” printed on the back of the piece in colorful graphic prints.

The “A Vigilante” star teamed her top with black leggings that came up just above her ankles, accessorized in black-hued boxy frames, and carried an oversized tote bag on her right arm. Wilde went makeup-free and wore her hair slicked back into a bun atop her head.

She opted for her signature Adidas Ultraboost 22 sneakers in black, a style the actress wears often by the sportswear brand. The sneaker features four eyelets, a raised midsole that credits its “boost” design, Adidas’ three-stripe branding, brand name on its tongue, and stretchy, exercise-ready material.

Since its debut in 2015, the shoe has created several types of sneakers that incorporate the silhouette, including its DNA 4.0 and 5.0 versions. All have fused her performance technology into their designs and collaborations, like her Adidas by Stella McCartney partnership that reinvents style with a fashionable twist.

Wilde has led the athletics manufacturer on several occasions. At the San Sebastián International Film Festival in September, she complemented her white tee, button-up blazer and baggy look with a pair of low-top sneakers from her Gucci collaboration. The suede shoe featured a bright yellow colourway and an auburn three-line logo printed on its arch bandage. On a date night alongside beau Harry Styles, she wore a similar brown, white and black bottom with a blue botanical print skirt, a navy t-shirt tucked into the flowy piece and a gold pendant necklace .

Karim Benzema was crowned Ballon d’Or last night in Paris. Well deserved and unsurprising after his remarkable 2021-22 season. adidas honors his phenomenal performance last season and victory last night with a golden collection worthy of the Ballon d’Or winner.

Alongside the limited collection and in honor of the player’s historic achievement, adidas also released a stunning short film, Hand of Gold.

The film embodies the concept that everything Benzema touches on the pitch turns to gold. The player notably had a series of hand injuries in 2019 which led to him wearing a hand bandage in every game. In the film, the white headband turns to gold, celebrating the inspirational story of a young boy from Bron in France who rose to the top of world football.
