One great thing about the Apple iPhone is the vast number of case options available. The new adidas winter collection looks great with three stripe styling and bold colors.

adidas Originals winter 2018 collection for Apple iPhone XS

A few weeks ago a collection of adidas Originals cases arrived to test out with my Apple iPhone XS. The winter 2018 case collection was launched with three new variations for the iPhone X/XS. These cases are clearly adidas-branded with the adidas logo and iconic three stripe design.

Cases from the Classics, Samba, and Metallic Clear range were sent along to try out.

adidas Classic range with white and black

The Classics range includes snap-on cases for $40 in black, blue, and red with the three stripes in black or white.

There is some protection provide with a snug fitting TPU shell that protects the edges, corners, and back of your iPhone. The back has a leather feel to it with prominent stripes and the adidas logo. These cases add very little bulk to your iPhone XS, but look great too.

Snake molded 3-stripes snap case

My favorite case in the adidas winter 2018 collection is the Snake Molded 3-stripes Snap case. It is a black case with snake skin texture on the back and three black stripes. There is a gold adidas logo that perfectly matches and enhances the look of my gold Apple iPhone XS.

Upper view of the Snake Molded adidas case

The case adds very little in bulk or weight to my iPhone XS while making the rear dual camera protrusion flush with the case back.

Wireless charging and Apple Pay work perfectly with the iPhone XS in this case. The case is available now for $40 from adidas, AT&T, Verizon, and Amazon.

Clear Trefoil Snap Case

Another case sent along was the Trefoil Snap Case in clear with gold highlights. Again, this one was a perfect match for my gold iPhone XS.

Rather than the 3-stripes, we see adidas logos scattered all over the back with gold highlights around the edges.
