About Adidas Originals
The adidas Originals Trefoil logo is a symbol of authenticity — authentic, casual, and heritage style that’s rooted in adidas’ rich history of sports. The logo was first introduced in 1972, right in time for the Olympic Games in Munich, Germany, standing as as a testament to adidas’ high-quality and timeless sportswear. But starting in 1997, the now iconic Three Stripes logo would go on to be used for adidas’ performance shoes and apparel, while the Trefoil symbol would be applied exclusively to the adidas Originals line. Heritage silhouettes, archival designs, and star-studded collaborations are stamped with the mark of the Trefoil, certifying adidas Originals as its own line of lifestyle and streetwear fashion.
