Life Style Sports are trend leaders in sports retail and the new Fashion identities featured in the ‘Sports Born, Street Worn’campaign look to harness the energy and innovation of sports performance while celebrating the authenticity and heritage of sports fashion. Starring UK based model Tyler Maher alongside top Irish model and street-style influencer Thalia Heffernan, the campaign showcases four key fashion identities: Trend, Terrace, Original Classics, and the Look of Running, offering an individual style solution for every customer this season.
Trend echoes the role music has played in the history of fashion, and the evolution of the trainer culture itself, with footwear styles intrinsically connected with different music movements throughout the decades such as Run DMC and the hip hop scene of the 1980s. Favourites such as the Nike Roshe Run (from €80) and adidasOriginals Mens’ ZX Flux (€88) return in a host of new colour ways for both men and women this season at Life Style Sports. Other highlights include the adidas Originals Mens Graphic Hoody (€65)in a navy jersey material with a graphic logo print.
The Terrace collection is inspired by off the pitch fashion from the early 1980s with football fans donning premium sports brands, kick starting some healthy style competition between rival fans. Iconic must-have Terrace looks are ever changing but always rooted in style with brands such as Ellesse and Adidas Originals all playing for top position. Embrace the edgy Terrace look with the Italian styling of theEllesse Costainas Jacket (€65) in navy and blue colour blocking or the retro adidas Originals Manchester United range (from €35). For girls, pieces such as the adidas Originals Firebird Track top (€70) is set to be a festive favourite for girls a cool seasonal print and a classic Firebird shape and fit. With the trademark white stripes, ribbed cuffs and zip up fastening it’s an ideal Christmas cover up for girls with sass.
The Original Classics collection features style innovators such as Nike Air and Converse, which are so classic, they’ve been re-worked and re-released time and again.

Perfect for the fearless, independent and original dresser, customers can choose from the Mens Nike Air Max Tracktop (€65) in either grey marl or navy paired with the ever popular Nike Air Max Trainers (from €115) in a huge choice of colours, prints and silhouettes.

Courtney Smith, Ireland’s leading fashion stylist and influencer comments on the new campaign: ‘’ With sportswear now worn on the streets, the Sports Luxe look is part of our everyday wardrobe and constantly spotted in street-style, on celebrities and for off-duty weekend attire. It’s the perfect combination of comfort and style with a sports heritage edge and Life Style Sports has this look spot on for Christmas with their new campaign, Sports Born, Street Worn. The four fashion identities of Trend, Terrace, Original Classics and Look of Running which they’ve created reflect this trend perfectly and really celebrate individual style”
“You don’t need to be hitting the gym to rock these looks and the best part is you can break the collection up and wear with other pieces in your wardrobe, it’s an achievable look with little effort to be on trend – the pops of colour are perfect for this time of year too.”
“My favourite pieces in the collection are the minimalist Nike Roshe Run trainers which come in a huge choice of colours for guys and girls and the vibrant floral print Adidas Originals Firebird. Both pieces are urban and cool and for me, perfect teamed with a t-shirt and skinny jeans for a relaxed weekend look this Christmas and beyond.”
