The brand with the 3-Stripes is an undisputable champion in the world of sportswear and athletic footwear. Whatever sport you play, whatever lifestyle you lead, an adidas shoe is there to help you achieve your goals. It all started with the brand’s founder, Adi Dassler, working in his mother’s wash kitchen in Bavaria, Germany. While there, he began a pursuit toward supplying athletes with the best of the best in sports equipment — and that he did. In the 1954 World Cup, the German national football team defeated the unsurpassed Hungarian team while wearing a revolutionary football boot design from Dassler. The status quo was disrupted, and the victory sparked the start of adidas shoes becoming a mainstay in households and locker rooms around the globe.
