Any signs of changes to the Adidas retail "authentics" format and MIC not being available at all?


Recommended Posts

Maybe it‘s not the right thread but my question is about Adidas Indos so I‘ve chosen this one...

What‘s the difference between climalite and aeroready?

Did they just change the name or do they use different material now?

Maybe someone also knows the backround for this change....

Thank you!

No difference between them, but there is a change coming up this spring with the material they’re using for the jerseys, which is why we’re seeing all these current ones end up like store like Ross. The new ones will fall under either PrimeBlue or PrimeGreen line, which falls in line with Adidas’ commitment to making products that are more environmentally friendly.

Or why so many of them are available in Germany now... 

Thanks for fast answer and all your information!

It would be better for the enviroment if Adidas would start selling MICs cause jerseys with better quality will last longer.... But that doesn‘t money for them 😡

I'm a bit confused after reading this and Reddit. Are they changing the materials for on-ice MIC jerseys as well or just Indo replicas? There seems to be a lot of MICs popping up at discount stores in the US lately. If only the teams get MICs, how are these being dumped seemingly en masse down there and why?

I had a conversation with Jim from Sports Haven the other day and he told me that Adidas was changing the construction of the MiC's.  I guess it could be for the environmentally material but it seems like it would be subtle.  I would think it has to be the reason for the MiC dump into those stores.  Would be nice if they eventually made their way towards the East Coast.

I have checked the local places a bunch of times and found zero jerseys, just the usual crap.

The pic I saw that sparked my curiosity was an Oilers MIC at a TJ Maxx for $16.99. I can see Canadian discount stores not seeing any US teams' jerseys, but I would expect Canadian teams' jerseys would find their way into Winners up here instead of being sent south of the border. Either that or I'm completely wrong about how the MICs are getting into American discount stores.

That, and it was in the middle of absolutely nowhere in like Tennessee or something like that.  It boggles the mind.

I'll bet they are making their way into more stores than you think.  There are people that make their living off of buying and reselling clothing.  These are the people that show up at 7am when the door opens or have friends that tip them off when the local thrift shops get their weekly shipment of junk, etc.

Changing the material to be more environmentally friendly?  So like more degradable so as to not fill up the landfill, or, maybe just turn to dust in our closets after ten years????  Jerseys are not a problem in the world, under any definition of science.  I'm old and sick of disproportionate emotionally-driven 'actions' to save the planet, that in reality do absolutely nothing that could be quantified as anything other than zero impact, but rather makes the misinformed/manipulated people feel good that they have done something worthwhile when they haven't, and corporations prance around about some fake virtue.

It's more likely making jersey materials from recycled materials. Nike did a similar thing with their soccer jerseys in 2010 and might still be doing it. 

I'm getting up there, but still in my 30s. What I'm getting sick of is how so many people today are making a political issue out of EVERYTHING.

I'm guessing they'll be like the Parley all-star jerseys Adidas had the other year (was that San Jose?). They've done that with a lot of their shoes, but have expanded beyond the Parley name and now they call it 'prime blue'. If it's anything like the previous material, the look and hand-feel for the end user will be imperceptible

Didn't Adidas sell the MiC Parley jerseys to the public when the SJ ASG happened a couple years back?  If so, this may be a good sign that there is a chance Adidas will do the same thing with authentics going forward.
