adidas face mask: Price, release date and where to buy
Australians are still waiting on the sportswear giant's venture into face masks. Here's everything you need to know about it.
As face masks start to become either mandatory or strongly recommended around the world, consumers are looking for options that suit all aspects of their lifestyle. One of those points being a mask that's comfortable enough to exercise in.
Thankfully, adidas is here to help.
The brand has launched The Face Cover. It features two layers of soft, breathable fabric that's super comfortable and wearable. It's made with adidas Primegreen, which is a high-performance recycled fabric free from virgin plastic.
- Not medically graded, but designed to help prevent the spread of viruses and germs
- Washable and reusable
- Designed to adapt to your face
- Stretches to hang comfortably around ears
- Tight fit for coverage
Where to buy the adidas face mask in Australia:
At this current time, Aussies cannot get their hands on the adidas face mask. The sportswear giant first rolled out a release in North America – which is now sold out – and it's currently available in the United Arab Emirates.
While we're yet to hear of an Australian release date, we're expecting it to be within the next few months. And once it does become available, the one and only place to shop is of course, adidas online.
The Face Cover is priced at US$16 and AED$59, which converts to just over AUD$20.
This mask seems to be a pretty hot commodity. Similar to sneakers, it's already been spotted on re-sell sites, including Aussie favourite eBay. Beware, some sellers have added a pretty hefty mark-up, with some of them priced at AUD$90. So, buy at your own risk!
Alternatives to the adidas face mask:
Other sportswear brands are also diving into masks. Under Armour is set to release a sports mask dedicated to exercise. The reusable and water-resistant design promises to stay put during any kind of training. It will be available for $40 from late August – and you can read all about it here.
