It can be tough when you know something's only going to be around for a limited time, but don't fret -- most of the players in Major League Soccer never quit their second jobs anyway. For sweet gear taking the Greg Lalas route and only playing one season, Burton x Adidas Originals.
This extensive LE fall/winter collab from VT-based Burton and Adidas Originals rocks 25-plus lifestyle/snowboard-ready flannels, hoodies, jackets, and matching boots/kicks, many of which have an "outdoorsy VT-meets-'90s Burton" vibe and are designed to be "authentic and inspirational" -- a tagline that's harder to recognize when it's not inserted between the "Welcome to" and "Stoughton". Stylish mid-layer staples include an orange plaid flannel button-up w/ brown quilted cord vest/cuffs; a navy soft-shell fleece-lined zip-up w/ contrasting graphic sleeves; and a charcoal grey kangaroo pouch'd fleece half-zip hoodie, also what you call shoppers so bad ass, they only give Pottery Barn cashiers part of their zip code. To cover your toes, BxAO breaks out matching on-and-off the mountain kickery like the signature Superstar, a two-toned rich brown boot leather sneak w/ white shell toe, metal eyelets, and orange laces; the navy Vul Mid w/ suede upper and wood print sock liner; and the gray/purple/black '90s Burton Freestyle-inspired high-cut winter Work Boot w/ molded key zip pockets, fleece lining, and an outsole of vulcanized rubber, which keep your feet from feeling...illogical human emotions.
They're also peddlin' must-haves like funky patterned hooded track jackets/pants, a graphic tee sporting a bear silhouette, and even a pair of sweatpant overalls, which aren't exactly in, but who knows, maybe you'll start a
New England Revolution.
