I blame my liking Adidas a little too much on Shah entirely. The story is: Adidas made a deal to sponsor Manchester United—his favourite football team, and by default, mine—for 10 years, and then suddenly our household has a 'no Nike/Puma/New Balance/Converse/other sports and shoe brands worth mentioning' rule.
I was very much indignant at first (especially because I really got into Converse after I got my first pair, but more on that brand later) but then I found out that I was able to pawn loads of Adidas stuff off of Shah, so I now very much like this rule.
Win-win situation, guys, and also, that's basically how I got hooked.
In fact, it was Shah who fell in love with these matching tee and jacket at an Adidas outlet before we left for Shanghai and insisted I get them, and they ended up being a part of my outfit for my visit to the spectacular Great Wall of China.
By the way, yes, I was at FREAKIN GREAT WALL OF CHINA GUYSSS. I still can't believe it myself sometimes. (!!!)
In preparation for our trip to Beijing for Great Wall of China, Shah discovered he needed a new pair of walking shoes, because, twist: his Stan Smiths, his only walking shoes, were hurting his feet (they were a half size smaller than his usual size, bless my sweet boy). Situation: Adidas in China is 33% more expensive than in Malaysia and coincidentally, Converse was having a massive 50% sale.
So guess who managed to convince her husband to get his very first pair of Converse and on top of that scored herself her very own sequinned high-top Converse?
Note: No prize for guessing correctly.
