Adidas Originals SS13 Collection Blue

Stockport County Football Club seldom have much to cheer about. They currently reside 15th in a league table of which few will have even heard. Quick, name another team in this league. You can’t. Known as the Blue Square Premier Table, it’s definitely not to be confused with the Premier League; it’s the lowliest football league in Britain.

The closest Stockport County – nickname The Hatters – come to legendary teams such as Manchester United is when they pass Old Trafford football ground on their way to play the likes of lowly Ebbsfleet United. No, I’ve never heard of them either, but they held Stockport to a 0-0 draw the Saturday before last.

But Stockport County fans can take solace from the fact that Adidas has just brought out a new watch range, the Newburgh SS13 Collection by Adidas Originals.

The watches come with a notched top ring with a matte nylon case and an oversized 3 on the dial. 3pm is the magic hour on a Saturday afternoon when every football team in Britain gets 90 minutes of football under way.

In reality the watches take their inspiration from classic driving watches, but who cares, the blue one in the collection exactly matches Stockport County’s team colours, so in addition to a training tee shirt and a scarf, it could become an essential piece of Stockport County supporters kit.

If you don’t support Stockport County, and let’s face it, not many people do, there are other colours in the range, including the SS13 Camo Collection.

In addition to new watches, Adidas Originals have just brought out the Adidas Blue Collection, a range of sports jackets, pocket tees, trousers and trainers in prints and shades such as brown, green and black. The idea behind the collection is to revive some of the much loved Adidas prints of the 1990s with a new twist.

There are three main prints: The Aztec Print, inspired by a graphic background that featured in a 1993 Adidas Basketball ad; Firecracker Camo which drew inspirations from the all-over repeat print of the Adidas Manchester United Away Jersey from the early 90′s and Triangle Polka Dot, a twist on the classic polka dot design, using triangles instead. All of these will be available on the Adidas website this coming Spring.
