Black Friday the new way

I took inventary of things that are still on my fall/winter shopping list this weekend. Then I did a little browsing for the items on the list. I bookmarked them for cyber week. There are plenty of deals to be had at Adidas during Black Friday. Next I searched for promo codes. And I found some coupons for Adidas Black Friday Deals at Slickdeals.

Saving tip: Before hiting Pay Now – no matter what you buy – check out their exclusive Black Friday pages so you can score the best deals.

What I hope goes on sale for Black Friday at Adidas

Well you guess that new sportswear is on my shopping list. What I hope goes on sale are the Samba Og perforated leather and suede sneakers in white. They look so 90s.

What I love about Adidas clothing

The first ever Adidas clothing I bought from my allowance as a kid were a pair of spikes. The pair had a huge discount in the end of summer sales. I wanted traction when running on unpaved paths in the woods. In the humid Lower Rhine region, jogging paths were slippy. Especially, in fall, wet leaves on the ground were a big slipping hazard. The spikes, of course, didn’t make the mandartory running with Dad and my sister more fun. However, they effectly helped to avoid making contact with the muddy ground. I liked that the shoes worked excellently for the purpose I bought them:

To avoid getting dirty and/or hurt.

Later in life, stunning athleisure looks at work and play became a trend, I remembered the good experience I had made with my spikes. They had been very durable! You get a great value for an affordable price! That being said the price-per-wear goes easily below a dollar. And the brand has the bold colors I love. Thus, it was no question to choose an Adidas jacket in fuchsia for the trend.

My favorite jacket

Can you believe that this jacket is already over ten years old? It’s my favorite piece from this brand and a goto for a casual posh look. This means I wear it a lot! You want proof? See how I wear my Adidas jacket.

They now have the same one, but in white and pink. I hope this Adidas jacket goes on sale. You know I like to wear white in winter and black in summer. So edgy.

In a nutshell

Navigate shopping on Black Friday by

  • Creating a list what to look for (to avoid impulse buying),
  • Doing some “pre-shopping” by browsing for the items on the list,
  • Bookmark them
  • Browse for coupons for the day and brand/store</>
  • Go to the bookmarked pages early to close the deal.
