Adidas is a German-based athletic and fashion apparel company that specializes in shoes and accessories. Their sneaker style generally features a focus on simplistic design, comfort, and mass appeal. While they mainly design low-rise shoes with a retro design, Adidas has branched out into flashier high-top designs.
The Adidas brand has a very interesting and unique story. Started by two German brothers before WWII, the original company split up between the two brothers - one retaining the Adidas name and the other forming a rival shoe company that eventually became Puma. Each company sponsored a football club in their hometown of Herzogenaurach. Today, the Adidas brand offers top of the line shoes, apprel and accessories for running, soccer, tennis, golf, basketball, skateboarding and more.
