A little history about the brand
Adidas was created by Adolf Dassler on 18 August 1949 with the main objective of improving the performance. The term adidas comes from the contraction of his nickname 'Adi' and the first syllable of his surname 'Das'. It was during the 1936 Berlin Olympics that adidas, or rather, Dassler Shoes at the time, experienced a dazzling success thanks to Jesse Owens. Indeed, the sprinter will manage to win 4 gold medals wearing a pair of spikes made by the company Dassler Shoes (adidas). From the 1960s and 1970s, adidas became a multinational and continues to grow through its various marketing operations. Firstly track & field specialist, adidas has diversified into trail and road products.
