A Brief Adidas History: How Adidas Earned Its Stripes

An iconic and well-known performance brand, Adidas has always been a major player in the sneaker world. 

The performance powerhouse was founded by Adolf “Adi” Dassler in Herzogenaurach, Germany way back in 1949. And ever since, its reach and popularity have grown exponentially. 

While Adidas was always known as a reliable brand, it wasn’t always seen as iconic and exceptional. And they were trying, sponsoring celebrities and rolling out a companion apparel catalog. But all of that changed in 1969 when the brand released its “Superstar’ shoes. 

These shoes exist today — and they’re hard to miss. This low-top basketball sneaker is fashioned with the iconic three red stripes along the side which pops from the clean, white surface. Now, you can find these shoes in an array of colors.

Another major success for the company came when it collaborated with Kanye West. “Yeezy’s” have become infamous, and they’ve helped skyrocket Adidas to true success. 

At the end of the day, Adolf  Dassler fulfilled his dream. He put everything he had into this company, and we all still wait anxiously to see Adidas’ latest new releases.

Here’s to many, many more years.
