For Winter 2012, adidas Originals introduces a women's collection of footwear and apparel inspired by traditional workwear. The collection consists of down jackets, toggle coats and outdoor boots, the latter remade with slimmer silhouettes for treks through the city.

The pieces as described by adidas Originals:

The adidas Originals Cupie 2 Boot gets dressed for the colder months with a suede and leather upper, twill collar, tongue and lining. Five hook-and-loop straps and a webbed back strap give a fashionable nod to this design’s basketball roots, while the matching outsole bottom gives the perfect sign-off.

Workday meets weekend in these adidas Originals Honey Workwear Boots. For a fresh, on-trend update Honey gets work boot styling with a suede upper, a chunky midsole, contrast twill lining, round laces and metallic hook details.

A cosy barrier against winter elements, the adidas Originals Down Jacket is designed with a combination zipper and snap-button placket. Details include leather stoppers on the drawcords and an oversize hood for total weather protection.

Soft chambray gives this adidas Originals Padded Vest a casual, lived-in feel from the start. Lined in cosy jersey, the vest has a hood and elastic finishing around the armholes and hem to help keep chilly gusts from sneaking in.

The adidas Originals Duffle Coat puts our signature on a classic winter parka in padded wool felt with a three-toggle closure. A detachable hood snaps on for extra weather protection. A trench-coat collar and adjustable cuff belts add vintage style.

The Winter Staples pack is currently available at select adidas Originals retailers.
